It might still be the dog days of summer, but August is rolling by quickly and autumn will be here before you know it. If you, like us, are dreaming of crisp mornings and colorful leaves, ready your home with these fall-ready decor accents that welcome the harvest season in style.
Nothing sets the mood in a home better than a scent evoking the best of each season, and this pumpkin spiced cake candle captures autumn beautifully while adding sophisticated warmth to wherever it sits.
Part of Glasshouse's limited sugar-coated collection, the candle offers notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh-baked pumpkin pie in a toasty melange of nostalgic delight, instantly transporting you to your most beloved memories of fall.
Yes, we want this piece to focus on "autumnal" themes rather than strictly Halloween, but the folksy feel and color palette of this Bethany Lowe piece feels too eternal to limit it to October only! The cute, playful face and petite size make it the perfect accent for tucking away between larger objects for just a pop of adorable cheer.
Set the scene for brisk, warm-lit days right at your front step with a faux seasonal harvest wreath like this one from World Market. It can be used year after year to usher in the coziest season and adds a pop of color to any door. Display it inside as well, maybe even using it on a countertop to hold a decorative cornucopia. And speaking of...
Turn the faux and floral tropes on their head with inventive paper art from Lovepop, one of our favorite card companies. It looks complex but pops open in a single movement, and with the proper care, it will last you several years!
2 Pack 24 Inch Tabletop Fall Lighted Maple Tree with 48 LEDs
As with the candles above, LED-lit accent trees like this add the sort of ambiance necessary to create the perfect autumnal evening. Place them on a credenza, the dinner table, or anywhere you'd enjoy a bit of illumination and enjoy the magic they create.
Strike Gently Co x Autumnal Wood: "Everything All The Time" Blanket (60" x 80")
Striking a perfect balance between head shop wall tapestry and Over The Garden Wall, this mystical scene will have you snuggled up and lost in a dreamworld every evening this fall. Wrap yourself in it while you watch a favorite movie, or hang it as a gorgeous backdrop to enjoy the artistry and care that went into its creation.
Speaking of cozy, this pillow is one we can picture ourselves hugging up to all year long. It may come in Halloween colors, but they're rustic and muted enough that no one will suspect he's meant to be spooky if you're showcasing him all autumn.
