Get into the harvest spirit! With the changing of the seasons comes reason to change things up when it comes to outdoor decor. From color palettes to DIYs, these are the fall outdoor design trends to follow this season.
Because it’s autumn, pumpkins are a must-have when it comes to decor. This year, switch it up by spray painting your pumpkin collection. Try a metallic gold or go all white for a touch of glam. You can follow blogger Taryn Whiteaker’s instructions on how to make paint drip pumpkins. Instead of trashing your worn out outdoor fixtures, consider repurposing them. Take a page out of HGTV’s book by repurposing an old bird bath. Add pine cones and candles to autumn-ify it.
Candles are essential in creating cozy lighting. Space them out on porch tables or place them inside hanging lanterns. If you’re worried about creating a fire hazard, purchase some of the flameless variety. Add some string lights and you’re set for the season. Kick back in a rocking chair, put some tea on the kettle and breathe in the crisp autumn air.
Skip traditional seating. Use hay bales or wooden crates to create a more provincial feel. Throw pillows instantly add a level of comfiness to your outdoor space. If you’re working with a porch swing or rocking chair, place a cozy blanket on it so you can cuddle up on chilly fall days. Invest in a bench like the Metal Windor Bench for the perfect vintage feel. Follow an HGTV tip and use burlap to wrap flower and plant pots. The result is effortless, shabby chic and perfect for fall.
At the end of the day, it’s all about your individual creativity and decorating your space to suit your specific tastes. Experiment with different designs and DIYs until you reach your desired result. Incorporate the fall leaves and other nature elements to create something awesome.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
