We are only a few weeks away from the coldest months of the year. And that only means one thing: we must make the most of the last warm days. And what better way to do it than spending the afternoons on your terrace and enjoy the fresh air.
Autumn is the best time of the year to add earth tone colours to your decorations. The return of cold temperatures, autumn colours and nature gradually changing before our eyes, are the greatest evidences that we are approaching the new season of the year. From the interior to the exterior of your home, the fall decorative colours can be rich and robust or subtle and moderate.
Here are some autumn decoration tips for that outdoor space that you love.
Play with textures, colours and shapes to create a cozy and innovative space.
1) Decorative elements for autumn
Autumn decorative elements can change the mood and environment of your home instantly. You can place them in the entrance of your home or on a predominant wall of an outdoor space. Consider nature themes with autumn colours in oranges, reds and golden yellows. If you prefer a more abstract art, oil painting with brown, red and dark ocher will make an autumnal statement without being so evident.
Use your imagination to create cute autumn corners.
2) Centerpieces that make a difference
Choose colours that reflect your home and the season. Consider using red and yellow apples to create an “organic” and edible centerpiece. Remember that the centerpiece doesn’t have to be stagnant; you can add or subtract elements throughout the season to obtain other visual effects.
Autumn centerpieces will create a family environment to your dining room.
3) Dress your outdoor spaces with autumn inspiration
Use tall corn stalks, raffia or straw to wrap a column of your terrace or outdoor space. You can also use thick tape of orange and brown colours to contrast with the straw.
Extra tip: A rocking chair will always add a perfect autumn touch.
4) Colder temperatures mean cozier spaces
As the weather gets colder, it´s time to take out the most comfortable blankets from your storage and place them on any sofa or basket. Complement them with autumn cushions and you will get a cozy space to enjoy a good book and a hot beverage.
If you want to lengthen the life of your terrace, incorporate cushions and blankets to each of your spaces.
5) Fill jars with seasonally coloured items
For simple and cheap items, fill glass jars with colourful items. Try to fill jars of different sizes to create a sense of variety and you can also add dry colourful beans, sweets, decorate with fabrics, leaves, etc.
DIY: You can stick dry leaves to the outside of the jar and place a small candle inside.
Easy and original, with this decorative touch you will create a unique decorative element for your autumn decoration.
6) Autumn and light make the perfect match for your outdoors
Decorative lightning is not just for Christmas or winter decorations, they are also perfect for autumn, as the sun begins to set earlier in the afternoon. Lights create a much more inviting and cozier outdoor environment. You can use light garlands, table lamps or candles built into creative and decorative elements.
