Tips For Decorating a Small Living Space This Fall
As a kid my mom always made it a big deal decorating for the holidays. She would dedicate one day to get all the boxes out of storage and slowly unpack them placing each piece in the same spot as the year before and the year before that. What made it so special was that at the end of the day the whole house would have the coziest feel. My dad would gather up firewood for a cozy night in to watch football, and candles were lit in every room giving off notes of pumpkin and vanilla.
As an adult the memories still stay with me and I try to recreate the same feel in my own home.
If your small space is lacking the character you desire, I’m going to show how I spruced up our living room with a few key items. You don’t need the expensive decor or overpriced pillows to truly make a space feel like home. What you do need is a little time and a candle lit in the background to get you motivated.
Add a stunning centerpiece to your coffee table.
Adding artificial leaves are one of the most least-expensive ways to spruce up any area in a room. This fall inspired one brightens the table without overdoing it, and the vase ties in nicely with the color palette.
Small details for a small room. To give off a fall country home style- decorate a woven basket or tray with little details. Colorful leaves, gourds, candles, and this table runner are a few fun ways to make a stunning centerpiece, and really make the space come to life.
Find a simple color palette.
Keep your colors simple and neutral so the space does not look over-cluttered. White pillows such as this one paired with a white throw blanket keep the area looking clean and inviting. If you’re going to add a few pops of color go for a fun accent pillow, a stand-out centerpiece, or a decorative rug.
Dress up an antique piece.
My uncle turned this antique door in to a functional shelf as a wedding gift for us this past year and I am obsessed. Perfect for adding small pumpkins, string lights, greenery, picture frames, or other fun accents to incorporate a vintage vibe. Finding a unique antique is a great way to add character in to your space this fall.
Detail the mantel.
Mantels are usually the focal point in a living room. Frame your mantel with big details that tie everything together. This is a great way to set the theme for the room and make the fireplace stand out to feel extra cozy. If you don’t have a mantel, try floating shelves, the perfect fall wreath, a wall mirror, or a fun antique accent to be the first thing you see when entering the room.
