Fall wall decor ideas

Just as the turning of the leaves heralds a new fall wardrobe, a seasonal change is an excellent chance to update your home decor. I truly believe that like the new year, every season should be celebrated as a way to start afresh and let go of the past and I always try to acknowledge that in my home by updating my wall decor to reflect the current season. Fall is my favorite season and adding an autumnal influence to my interior design is something I do once a year. Below are some great simple ways to decorate your walls for fall.

1. Framed fall letters. I always keep some empty matching frames in storage as they are the easiest way to add a seasonal theme to my wall decor. One great way to do this is to simply print out some letters in the colors that reflect that particular season. For fall I use brown and orange tones, and when I transition to winter I print out those letters in blues and grays. Painting the frames an autumnal color adds additional effect.

2. Fall wall wreath. While most people associate wreaths with Christmas and winter decor, in actual fact wreaths can be utilized effectively for any season or specific time of year. They add a beautiful 3-D effect to any wall and can also be hung over a mantle for a warming touch to the living room. Wreaths are very simple to construct. Just buy a circular piece of foam from any hardware store or haberdashery and pin in a variety of autumn leaves and berries.

3. Fall themed prints. Updating wall art is the easiest way to adapt your decor for the current season. Fall themed wall art and prints are available from a variety of sources and are usually very inexpensive. I usually buy one or two prints a season from amazon or etsy and add to existing frames on my walls. Prints are also a great reminder of what is so special about each season.

4. Framed leaves. Nothing is more autumnal than the changing of leaves from green to the vibrant earthy colors of orange, yellow and brown. Why not bring the outdoors inside and use natures ready made art to update your walls by framing a selection of autumn leaves. The simplest way to preserve leaves is by pressing them flat between two books. A little trick I always use is to place two sheets of absorbent paper either side to remove all traces of moisture, which is the key to keeping them in their original state. Once pressed, remove carefully, as they are usually very delicate and prone to cracks. Mount each leaf in a suitable frame using glue or place between two panes of clear glass. So simple yet so effective!

5. Chalkboards. One wall decor tip I always give people is to invest in a framed chalkboard. That way there is an ever changing source of artwork for the home. Chalkboards are great as they can be easily illustrated with various themed writing and images, and updated and changed whenever necessary. Some chalkboard illustrations you can use for autumn are pumpkins and leaves. Otherwise some simply typography can be used to great effect.
