Fall Scented Candles

1. Candlelight Magic:

Imagine coming home after a long day of work to a space filled with the soft, flickering glow of a scented soy candle or two. Young professionals often lead busy lives, and creating moments of serenity is essential. That's why incorporating scented candles into your fall decor is an ideal choice. Besides, don't fall evenings call for the soft glow of candles anyway?

Opt for scented soy candles from eco-conscious brands like Scented Designs to infuse your space with delightful autumn aromas. Candles not only add warmth and ambiance but also create a calming environment after a long day of work. Place them on your coffee table, mantel, or in decorative hurricane vases to enjoy their comforting fragrance and flickering light.

Pro Tip: Choose fall scents full of cinnamon and spices like Apple Harvest or Pumpkin Everything to envelop your home in the scents of the season.

2. Autumnal Hues:

Swap out your bright summer decor for a more autumn-inspired color palette. Deep oranges, rich burgundies, and earthy browns can be incorporated into your throw pillows, blankets, and even artwork. These warm tones evoke a sense of coziness, making your home the perfect place to unwind or host friends for a movie night.

And if your first thought, is, Yikes, I love fall decor but I don't want to break the bank, here are a few affordable options to consider:

  • DIY Centerpieces: Adorn your dining or coffee table with a DIY fall centerpiece. Craft your own fall centerpieces using inexpensive materials like mason jars, seasonal foliage, and candles, which can do double duty by looking and smelling like fall! 

  • Art Prints: Affordable art prints featuring autumnal scenes or colors can be an excellent addition to your walls. Look for digital downloads on platforms like Etsy.

  • Seasonal Decor: Decorative gourds, mini pumpkins, or pinecones can be purchased at low cost from local farmers' markets or grocery stores.

  • Wall Decals: Removable wall decals or stickers with fall-inspired designs can instantly transform a room's ambiance without the commitment or cost of permanent decor.

  • Thrift Store Finds: Thrift stores often have hidden gems like vintage vases, candleholders, or decorative plates in fall-appropriate colors.

3. Natural Elements:

Fall is all about connecting with nature, and you can bring that essence into your home by incorporating natural elements. Consider decorative gourds, pumpkins, pinecones, and seasonal flowers as centerpieces for your dining table or coffee table. Wooden accents and rustic furniture can also add a touch of warmth and charm. To create free or low-cost decor arrangements, forage for fallen branches, leaves, or acorns in your local area. 

4. Layered Textures:

As the weather cools down, introduce textured layers into your decor. Think plush rugs, cable-knit blankets, and faux fur cushions. These tactile elements not only provide comfort but also give your space a luxurious feel that's perfect for the fall season.

Plus, those warm, cozy blankets are super functional as well as decorative because they will help you keep the heater off for that much longer, saving you $$ on that heating bill!

5. Seasonal Wall Art:

Update your wall art with seasonal prints or autumn-themed paintings. These can be easily swapped out as the seasons change, allowing you to keep your space fresh and in tune with the time of year. Look for artwork that features fall foliage, cozy scenes, or even spooky motifs for Halloween.

As mentioned earlier, digital downloads that you print yourself are super affordable options that won't break the bank.
