Autumn has been, and will always be, my favorite season. Which says a lot, because I generally don’t play favorites. My tastes change often and I hate hierarchies, so put 2 + 2 together and you’ve got a recipe 4 a pretty scatterbrained girl. Ha! Do you see what I did there?
Yet there’s something about the fall that absolutely transforms me. Perhaps it’s the sweet and spicy chai teas, cozy knits or my favorite equestrian boots that make my heart sing. Whatever the catalyst, I enjoy nothing more than peeling back the August monthly calendar to reveal a bright, crisp September full of promise, leaves and opportunity.
I generally alter my home decor when I change out my closet. However, this fall, because the renovation isn’t finished, my autumn decorating switch is on hold. Since I refuse to feel sad during my favorite time of year, I’m dedicating this entire post to how I plan to change up my decor next year. (And let’s hope the renovation is finished by then, ok?)

Instead of a light, breezy feeling, I like to feel more grounded in my space when autumn rolls around. I’d replace gauzy curtains with thick, heavy draperies, throw some patterned rugs on the ground and add more visual detail!
I love the look. What’s on tap for your fall decorations? For inspiration, check out a few of my favorite autumn decorating ideas, including centerpieces, DIY treatments and more:
