Fall can be a pretty contradictory season. Some days, the crisp autumn air beckons you outside to take in the beautiful auburn, burnt orange and deep yellow leaves on the trees. Other days seem like perfect opportunities to bundle up on your couch and start to hibernate for winter.
This fall, bring the natural beauty of fall into your home in Davisville Village with these easy tips:
Decorating an apartment with seasonal décor can be a challenge; too much makes the apartment look cluttered and feel small. Incorporating small seasonal touches can give a space the perfect seasonal pop of colour.
The great part of decorating for the season is the amount of materials provided by nature. Take a walk in a nearby park and collect flowers and leaves. Dry and press the items between the pages of a large book. Set aside for a few days and then mount the leaves on dark construction or scrapbook paper and place in a frame.
String some leaves together to create a colorful garland. Next, drape around curtains. Or simply display across the center of the table for a hint of fall in your apartment.
Buy several small pumpkins and gourds place them together for a colorful centerpiece. This fall harvest arrangement of various styles and shapes is an excellent look alone or alongside a bouquet of flowers. Local flower boutique, Midge (651 Mt. Pleasant Rd.), has a beautiful selection of seasonal bouquets to spruce up your place on a dreary day.
Light the Night
Make the most of the shorter days and use some mood lighting around your apartment. Create a unique display of leafs using floating candles in a bowl lined with fall foliage. You can also bring a romantic feel to the longer nights by lighting candles or setting up soft-twinkle lights. (Note: be sure to never leave a candle unattended or check out some options for flameless candles).
