With the arrival of fall comes the urge to decorate. The various holidays and their accompanying decorations play a part in this creative tradition, but the colors of the season and the cooler temperatures also encourage people to make their home in Grand Forks ND more cozy and inviting. Here are a few tips for bringing out the best of fall inside and outside your home.

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween. In fact, arranging a mixture of pumpkins and gourds of varying sizes on your front porch is a great way to add some festive warmth to the front of your home. Add in some potted mums and other warm-toned flowers to round out the display.

If you have a patio in the back that you want to make the most of, the addition of a fire pit is one way to ward off the cooler weather. Add some soft cushions and plenty of throw blankets to your patio furniture to make an area where you can gather with family and friends for an enjoyable evening. Don’t forget the smores!

When it gets too cold to sit outdoors by the fire pit, head indoors and enjoy a cozy evening by the fireplace. Even if you don’t build a fire each evening, make the most of firewood’s rustic charm. There are a variety of firewood baskets that not only keep firewood and kindling close at hand, they also add style to your hearth, with materials ranging from sturdy canvas to shimmering bronze.

Don’t forget to add some fall spice to the bedrooms in your home in Grand Forks ND. Changing the bedding and adding in fall colors that complement your bedroom are a nice way to update the room for the season. This is particularly easy if you use a cover for your comforter. Choose a bolder, richer color with accent pillows and an attractive blanket draped across the foot of the bed to make a real impact. Alternatively, this is a great time to bring out any heirloom quilts that will instantly add a sense of family comfort.

Finally, just as you add more layers to your bed to stay warm, add some more layers in your living room and family room. Neutral throws paired with warm accent pillows are a great way to make chairs and sofas look like the perfect place to snuggle up on a cool autumn day.
