As we settle into new ways of working, new modes of learning, and the new routines that come with living in a time of pandemic, we welcome the month of September and the start of a new season. We let go of the backyard pool time and barbecues of summer, prepare our palates for all things pumpkin-flavored, and turn our thoughts to the slow slide into the Texas fall. Changing home décor is one way we welcome new seasons; and this year is no different in that respect. There is a myriad of ways to add fall pieces to your home décor and achieve a much-needed seasonal refresh. Here are three fresh ideas for coasting into fall and adding autumnal warmth to your coastal home.

  • Update your entrance.

The easiest way to start when it comes to changing your home décor is to update your front door! Swapping your welcome mat from a bright summery one to a warmer fall doormat is the most obvious first step; a different doormat with a pattern or saying that is specific to the season is the primary inviting element of your front porch or entryway. Another thing you might want to change to be more in line with your new doormat is your door décor. Freshening your front door with a new wreath, sign, or even paint color can work wonders.

  • Modify your color scheme.

Another great way to welcome fall into your coastal home is by modifying the color scheme throughout the house. You might already have some beachy earth tones in your décor, but adding muted golds or coppers or weaving in traditional oranges and yellows can help alter the overall feel. You can “go big” by painting accent walls in different rooms, or keep it simple by using different colored textiles, from bathroom and kitchen towels to throw pillow coverings to bedding.

  • Layer different textural elements.

You can continue your interior design update by layering different textural elements into your fall décor as well. Adding a variety of seasonal flowers and plants is one way to bring in living texture. Changing textiles such as curtains, rugs, and throw blankets from light, flowy ones to heavier ones can also have a major impact. And incorporating decorative pieces like unique furniture pieces (such as warm wood or leather end tables or accent chairs) and natural elements (like colorful gourds with shells and starfish on display) is yet another idea to consider for creating a sense of welcome and warmth as the season changes. 

These are just a few simple ways to transition your coastal home décor from summer to fall. Adding a sense of warmth and coziness in your home as cooler temperatures arrive, while still keeping a beachy feel, can be done!
