The change of seasons makes a great excuse for changing things up in your house. That doesn’t mean you have a mega budget for a mega makeover. You can make a meaningful difference with barely any dent on your wallet.
Now that summer is over and autumn is here, here are 5 tips to ‘fall’ into a great sense of style on a budget:
1. Utilize the “use what you have” theory
Go through your cupboards and drawers to find items that can be used as props in your fall display. Find pitchers to use to hold wildflowers and dried grasses, bring out warm throws to toss over your couch, layer fabrics on your tables. (Remember, pretty blankets and quilts can work well!)
2. Take a nature walk
Gather organic elements that can be used in your fall makeover. Acorns, pinecones, seed pods, bark, even stones can be used as display in bowls around the home. Press pretty leaves and strew them on tables and around centerpieces.
3. Bring out the candles
If you put away your candles for winter, now is the time to bring them to center stage. Gather groups of inexpensive votives and tie together with scraps of raffia.
4. Add scent to the home
Simmer apple peels and cinnamon sticks on the stove, or invest in a couple of vials of potpourri oil. They are relatively inexpensive at just a couple bucks apiece, and they last forever as you only need a few drops.
5. Celebrate the tastes of the harvest season
Keep apples and pomegranates out in bowls, store squashes on countertops, pick up a pumpkin or two at your produce stand and use as a centerpiece, or pile a couple next to the kitchen door.
Most of all, take the time to celebrate this special season and appreciate the comfort we can offer our families in our own homes.

Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!
