Making a Home; How To Easily Add a Touch of Autumn in Your Home

Autumn is more and more present at the moment with the change of colours on the leaves and shorter days. For me, one of the more fun things at the moment is decorating my apartment in an autumn-theme.
It doesn't need to cost that much in terms of time, labour or money to add a touch of autumn in the home decor and today I will give you some ideas on how to do it.

Some of my ideas include:
  1. Fill a bowl or a lantern with pumpkins and gourds
  2. Add a throw blanket to a chair or the sofa (plaid, wool, autumn colours etc)
  3. Add a pillow on the couch (woodland, typography, autumn colours etc)
  4. Fill a vase or a glass dome with acorns, chestnuts and/or pinecones
  5. Light some autumn scented candles
  6. Fill a vase with autumn-coloured flowers as a table centerpiece
  7. Do some autumn crafts and display them somewhere in your home (feel free to check out this post if you want inspiration)
  8. Frame an autumn-inspired printable and hang it up (feel free to check out this post for some free printables)
  9. Buy some autumn-inspired napkins

Do you have any great ideas yourself when it comes to autumn decor? Feel free to share in the comment section below.

Inside Job; An interesting documentary about the 2008 financial crisis.
