Baltimore, MD -- Why would you want to decorate your home for the fall? For the same reasons you change your wardrobe when seasons change -- for variety and to better enjoy the changing weather. Nationally recognized home decorating and how-to-expert, Donna Babylon, provides a few ideas for creating a seasonal metamorphosis in any room of your home. She offers many other budget-conscious decorating suggestions for both novice and experienced decorators in her newest book, "More Splash Than Cash Decorating Ideas". Fall is soon to arrive so let's get started!
*Fall, like any other season, is defined by unique colors. Add some accessories and accents from the warm side of the color wheel that reminds you of images of fall and winter.
*Add a slipcover to your favorite sofa or chair in dark, rich colors for a completely new look.
*Individual bowls of pine cones, leaves, nuts or gourds placed around the house announce the arrival of fall.
*The nights are getting longer -- and chillier. This is the perfect time to bring out the candles. Group them together for maximum glow.
* Take advantage of the bounty of this harvest season and use scooped-out squash or pumpkins as natural containers for colorful fall flowers.
*Scatter some throw pillows made from fuzzy wools, "snuggly" flannels, velvets and corduroys. These additions are sure to fend off fall and winter chills.
*Arrange your furniture around your fireplace or wood stove for added coziness.
* Use mismatched mittens as a silverware holder at each table setting on cold fall nights.
Donna Babylon has appeared on more than 100 home decorating programs on HGTV and Discovery networks. She has been a featured speaker at home decorating and how-to consumer shows around the country for more than 10 years. More Splash Than Cash is featured in Doubleday Book Clubs and on QVC.
