Swap This For That: Fall Edition

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The changing of seasons is exciting for many, but for a few, the end of summer may seem too hard to bear. Tossing away plants and covering up patio furniture may be a drag, but a way to soften the blow is to introduce new autumnal elements into your space.

If you’re looking to usher in fall with the help of apartment decor, here are a few design elements to remove and introduce to your apartment:

Replace Fresh Flowers With Dried Flowers

Fresh flowers sing of summer. While we love their scents and vibrant hues, autumn offers a chance to switch things up and opt for a unique centerpiece. Have you heard of the new painted flower trend? This technique takes spray paint to dried flowers and results in a stunning finish—think potpourri with a vibrant pop.

Swap Out Herbs For Gourds

While we love our fresh basil atop a Caprese salad and sprigs of mint in our limeade, it can be hard to maintain kitchen herb gardens in the colder months. To ease this transition, swap out your plants for fall produce like squash, pumpkins, and colorful gourds. Whether you enjoy a nice centerpiece or prefer to scatter them around your space, they offer a seasonal, harvest-inspired spin to the natural decor of your home.

Nix Patio Furniture, Welcome Cozy Accents

If covering patio furniture brings a tear to your eye, consider purchasing cold weather furniture accents to pick your mood back up. As we bid adieu to summer, we also welcome a new season that is exciting in its own way. Celebrate this occasion by treating yourself to new throw pillows, cushions, or a new blanket. Not only will these additions warm the soul but they will also excite you for the season and the comforting mood it instills. Instead of mourning the loss of patio dinners, you’ll look forward to evenings curled up on the couch.
