Decorating for fall is all about bringing elements of nature into the mix and creating experiences for the senses. I absolutely love the color palettes, flavors, and aromas associated with this season… but who doesn’t?!
Just by wandering around my apartment—albeit well stocked with seasonal tchotchkes all year round—I came up with 5 cute ways to bring fall festivity into plain view. Here are 5 boho home decor ideas for fall that you can put together in just a few minutes.
A Colorful Collection of Candles
Everyone has a few candles lying around, right? Whether you pick them up at seasonal markets or are gifted them from co-workers, fall is the perfect time to burn through some of those aromatic babies.
Candles of all shapes, colors, and aromas can be grouped together—burned individually or in pairs to create unique scents. They look cozy and cute when grouped on tables, nightstands, and other surfaces.
A Gem-Surrounded Incense Burner
I picked up this small heart-shaped incense burner from a Chinese market and put it in a small antique coaster with matching green accents.
I then sprinkled a handful of quartz crystal points and clear purple amethyst to add some character and picked up some coconut incense to top it all off.
But even if you don’t have these particular items, think about how you can layer tonal hues and jewel tones.
A Beautiful Display of Twigs
I surprised myself last year with the number of branches and twigs I brought into the apartment. Just taking a walk through the park could not be accomplished without spotting and grabbing neat-looking kindling along the way.
While I’ve had to curb this habit, lest the house become full with twigs, I arrange these little finds in pretty glass cups and vases. It’s the perfect autumnal touch!
An Arrangement of Charming Kitchen Accents
This is probably going to look best in your kitchen, but don’t underestimate the ability of spice jars, cute tins, and vintage spoons to look great in common rooms, on mantels in dens, and even in the coffee-break-corner of your home office.
Ours are arranged on the counter with plants and an endless tea inventory.
One Big, Beautiful & Unusual Object
Finally, I urge you to seek out beautiful, semi-unusual objects to set up as focal points on the surfaces of your various rooms. I found matching painted wooden elephant head shelves at a church thrift store.
Not that many other people in the room were in the market for elephant shelves… but in Brooklyn, you never know.
Bonus tip! A burlap table cloth will instantly transform your space into a cozy, autumnal abode, and a few colored leaves arranged on the table are just as darling.
