5 Easy Décor Ideas to Dress Your Home for Fall

Fall is here, and the cooler weather inspires many of us to give your new Schaeffer Home a cozy feel with seasonal décor. Use these ideas to give your new home a fresh fall vibe:

  1. Layer warm blankets and throws on the beds and sofas. Choose rich fall colors and patterns like plaid or autumn leaf prints for visual interest. Chunky textures like cable-knit afghans and plush velvets will help keep you warm on chilly evenings.
  2. Dress up your front entrance with fall flowers such as chrysanthemums. Plant them in the ground or in pots. Choose colors to coordinate with your home.
  3. Make table centerpieces or mantel decorations with fall leaves, small gourds or apples.
  4. Cover bare floors with thick shag area rugs or faux sheepskins. They feel great underfoot and add to the cozy feel of a room.
  5. Hang a traditional fall wreath on the front door or above mantel. It’s an easy way to bring an unmistakable note of autumn to your home.

You’ll love to decorate your brand new Schaeffer home in every season. Our homes are designed to look great while serving your needs for convenient everyday living. Energy-efficient construction makes Schaeffer homes warm and cozy in cooler weather. Family room fireplaces are the ideal focal point for relaxation in the evening.
