Budget Friendly Fall Decor

As I transition into this new season, I find myself reaching for sweaters and wanting all things cozy!

It’s refreshing to update my home with fall-esque decor in understated ways that aren’t too “themed”. As an interior designer, I like adding splashes of fall without going full on pumpkins and gourds.

Designer Tip: I start with layering some cozy knit pillows, fall candles, rich greenery, and richly colored artwork. I use the color palette to set the mood.

Fall Decorating Design Tip

When decorating for fall, it’s all about the rich colors, cozy textiles, and layered materials. I love mixing chunky knit blankets with leather accents and acting color with artwork and florals!

Fall Colors

Incorporate fall colors into your home with vintage artwork that features an Earthy color palette. Think greens, burnt orange, reds, and gold / wood tones!

Where to find affordable vintage artwork?

Looking for beautiful vintage artwork without breaking the bank? There are a few ways to get the look for less!

  • Antique / Thrift Stores: It might take a little more time to hunt down the most beautiful pieces, but it’s often worth the extra time! You can find incredible frames for $5-$50! Sometimes the art is great, but sometimes it’s pretty awful, which leads me to…
  • Did you know you can print out museum art for free!? Yep – The Met, National Gallery, and Art Institute of Chicago all have free catalogues you can download and print! It takes a little time to sift through things to find the perfect piece, but you can’t beat free art!
  • If you don’t have time to sort through thousands of art pieces, try curated museum art print shops like Vintage Supply, Juniper Print Shop, or Pulp Print Shop.

Scent: Fall Candles

Fall wouldn’t be complete without a pumpkin spice candle burning! My friend Alex recently launched her candle company, Black Barn Home Co. All of her candles are scented with essential oils and every aspect is made in the USA!
