With the start of school coming soon, you can almost smell the pumpkin spice in the air. There’s something about fall in Albany that is comforting, cozy, and warm. Show your fall spirit and make your Albany, NY apartment feel inviting with these five fall inspired apartment decorating ideas.
Fall Foliage and Gourds Centerpiece
Create a simple, natural centerpiece by combining fiery fall leaves with miniature gourds in all kinds of fun sizes and shapes. From baby pumpkins in pale white or vibrant orange to textured green gourds, these will make your family smile. Place the foliage in a vase and surround it with the gourds.
This fall decoration also works for the mantle or an entryway table – anywhere a pop of fall color would brighten up your Albany, NY apartment.
Fall Themed Wall Art
With the change of seasons, it might be time to change up your wall art. Update family photos or replace framed art with fall themes – say, a photo of the Catskills in fall or a fiery sunset.
Fall Leaf Lanterns
Mason jar lanterns with fake candles are super easy to make and personalize. Why not create a fall-inspired edition by gluing yellow and orange silk leaves inside mason jars? The candles will cast an amber glow, and you’ll have a unique and seasonal lantern for use on porches, patios, balconies, entryways, living rooms – really, anywhere. If your home decor style tends toward DIY, give this a try.
There’s something about fall weather that makes folks want to curl up with a mug of tea or cider. Make your apartment cozy with plush throw pillows and blankets – ideally in plaids, rich colors, and patterns.
Seasonal Accent Wreath
A front door wreath that changes with the seasons is an easy way to personalize your apartment while celebrating what you love about every season. Two themes stand out for fall: New York apples and Halloween.
Use real or fake apples to create a cheery seasonal wreath. For an aromatherapy kick, tie cinnamon sticks to your wreath.
For some, it wouldn’t be fall without Halloween. From witches’ hats and ghosts to spiders and snakes, there are fun fall symbols for everyone. Try a front door wreath with a spooky touch to make your friends and neighbors smile this Halloween.
