7 Top Decorating Ideas for Your Bedroom this Fall: Making Your Room More Cozy & Stylish

Fall is one of the most exciting seasons of the year. The trees, the smells, the comfy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes; it’s a cozy, wonderful time and who wouldn’t want to enjoy that warm vibe all year long?

And since this is the season that prompts us all to spend a little more time inside, homeowners and renters alike tend to step up their interior decor game and invite the fall into their homes, adding notes of warmth and pops of color that are typical for the fall season.

If you’re one of the many people that love fall and you’re looking for ideas on how to decorate your bedroom with seasonal elements, here are some great ideas for you to try.

1. Scented candles

When it comes to decor, we often think about how the room looks. Other senses are often ignored. With fall, it’s hard to ignore the power of scent as there are plenty of smells associated with this season.

Some good scents to bring into your bedroom during the fall season include: fresh fig, warm wood, cinnamon, oak moss, sandalwood, frankincense, patchouli, pumpkin, bergamot, apple, raspberry, clary sage, and so much more. Get several candles in these scents or better yet, get them in various blends. Essential oils could also do the trick on the odor side, but they lack the visual element that a well-picked, nice looking candle would bring.

To step things up a little, you can pair the candles with some nice, seasonal elements to create an arrangement where the candles are the centerpiece. Just remember that candles are flammable, so if you’re adding any seasonal flowers or items that might be lit up, keep them at a safe distance from the flame of the candle.

2. Ambient lighting

The right lighting can create a relaxing mood in your bedroom. This fall, you’ll want ambient lighting that’ll make you want to snuggle up in your sheets and never leave.

Instead of the usual white light bulb, opt for ones that emit a warm glow like orange or yellow. This will really go well with your scented candles, plus it has the added benefit of making you fall asleep faster.

3. Warm palettes

Another easy way to decorate your bedroom this fall season is by changing up the color palettes. I’m not saying to go crazy by painting your walls — especially if you’re a renter and don’t have the go-ahead from your landlord to repaint the walls. But there are many other ways to play with colors that don’t involve paint, fumes, or a full day’s worth of work.

Simply replace your current bed linens with some warm colors like orange, burgundy, brown, terracotta, red, and purple. You can also apply this in other areas of the bedroom such as your rugs and curtains, and make use of some nice wall art to supplement the fall color effects.

4. Cozy bedding

Since this season is all about getting cozy, you want to make sure that your bed is conducive to rest. Weighted blankets are the new fad so you may want to consider getting one. But in addition to that, you also have to think about the fabric.

You’ll want to keep warm this fall so consider replacing your current bed sheet and pillows with thicker ones made in velvet, fur, wool, or flannel. They’re wonderful fabrics that do more than just make you warm, they also add texture to your room decor. 

5. Fall accents

Replace last season’s accessories with fall accents. Some good ideas you can do are a vase of autumn flowers, a tray of pinecones, or even just a fall scented candle. 

6. Add in the rugs

One rug is nice but two rugs is even better. This ups the cozy factor allowing more opportunities for you to get warm. If there’s already one beside your bed, place the second rug in an area where you are likely to spend a lot of time like by the window or the foot of the bed. Opt for a rug in a contrasting color so that it doesn’t look too matchy-matchy.

7. Embrace the dark

We know natural light is great but fall is one of the rare times where you’re allowed to embrace the dark. This doesn’t mean you have to completely remove natural light from your room altogether, but you’ll want to have the option to darken the room if needed. For this, you’ll want to put up curtains in a dark color. This allows you to easily pull them together if you want to get extra comfy in the evenings, or even during daytime. 

There are plenty more ways to make the bedroom more appropriate for fall but these are the easiest, most effective ways to do it. We hope you enjoyed these tips.

Now onto you. What decor changes do you make in your home during the fall season? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

What Home Offices Would Look Like If They Were Designed by David Lynch, Wes Anderson, and Other Iconic Movie Directors

It goes without saying that 2020 was the year when everyone embraced working from home — whether they liked it or not. When this whole mess started in the spring of 2020, a lot of people thought their new remote-work setup was a temporary thing, so they didn’t think too much of it. Fast forward to 2021, and many of us are still working from home — and we’re starting to get creative. 

Designing your perfect home office is no picnic. You need to think of the space at hand, of access to natural light, of the desk, the chair, the gadgets, the décor – we could go on and on. Budget Direct went even further with this, and really let their imagination run free by creating digital renderings of home offices designed by some of the world’s most iconic movie directors. So, if you’ve ever wondered how you could add a splash of Wes Anderson, David Lynch vibe to your life, check out the 5 renderings below and you might just get inspired. 

1. Home office eye candy à la Wes Anderson

Wes Anderson movies are the definition of eye candy. The visuals, the colors, everything is so creative and colorful that you can’t look away for one second. Just think of Moonrise Kingdom, The Royal Tenenbaums, Fantastic Mr. Fox, or The Grand Budapest Hotel. All of Anderson’s movies are a feast for the eye, and his home office would probably look very similar.

The folks at Budget Direct imagined their own version of a Wes Anderson-designed home office, inspired by The Royal Tenenbaums era. They combined organic, earthy colors and “curated clutter with meticulously angled furniture.” Curated clutter is definitely our new favorite term. 

2. The David Lynch vibe

Just thinking of David Lynch’s movies can send you into a twisted abyss of distorted realities, shapes, and sounds. The best representation of Lynch’s genius mind is, of course, Twin Peaks. The constant splash of red, coupled with that crazy score by Angelo Badalamenti, is something that you just can’t erase from your memory. So why not turn your home office into your very own red room? Be careful, however, if you have vertigo: those twisty black-and-white tiles and the undulating red velvet curtains might make your head spin.

3. Lavish Sofia Coppola-directed office

Budget Direct’s version of a Sofia Coppola-designed home office takes its cue from movies like The Virgin Suicides or Marie Antoinette. Pastel colors, flowery designs, vintage furniture, baroque curves, all with a dash of opulence — that’s how your home office could look like if you had Sofia Coppola as an interior designer. If you’re a fan of feminine curves, classic French chic, or have just finished binging Bridgerton, then this one’s for you. You’ll feel just like Marie Antoinette at Versailles, just on a smaller scale.

4. Neo-like home office by the Wachowski siblings

Can you believe it’s been 21 years since The Matrix first hit the screens? Yeah, us neither. The good news is that a fourth Matrix is in the works, so there’s something to look forward to in 2021. In the meantime, if you want to wait for the new movie in style, you can take a cue from the Wachowskis and design your home office to look like Neo’s (hopefully without all the hacking, though). The dark lines, dark walls, dark web (get it?), coupled with the touches of green will make you feel right at home in your own Matrix. Pretty psychedelic.

5. Clean-yet-sophisticated space inspired by Bong Joon-ho’s work

Speaking of movies you won’t be able to unsee, remember Parasite? We talked about the stunning glass house of the Park family, marveling at how the home manages to stand out as a main character in this epic movie. At first glance, the house seems inviting, warm, cozy and serene, but deep down it hides dark chambers, dark secrets and dark desires. That’s basically the same feeling you get from Budget Direct’s version of a Bong Joon-ho-designed home office. It looks too nice, too calm, too good to be true.

Feeling inspired yet? Now is the time to design your dream home office, and maybe find some inspiration in these versions that look plucked right out of your favorite movies. However, if you haven’t found anything to your liking on this list, be sure to check out the full list of digital renderings over at Budget Direct.

Extreme Makeover’s Ty Pennington Lists Bright and Beautiful Venice Beach Home

Reality TV star Ty Pennington, known for changing people’s lives with his energetic personality on the original version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, is now looking to cash in on his own home makeover. Pennington has just listed his house — a beautiful and bright 1927 Craftsman in Venice, Calif. — for $2,795,000.

Pennington put his home design expertise to good use and carefully restored the property earlier this year with the help of his trusted interior designer, Patrick Delanty. Delanty, also known to be Halle Berry’s designer, has long been working alongside Ty Pennington, serving as his design director for Extreme Makeover and running his on-air design segments, most notably his presence on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Rachel Ray Show, NBC’s Nightline and Good Morning America.

Just like its reality TV star owner, the home is bright, cheerful and quirky, with colorful interiors exuding creativity and style. The property is listed by Patrice Meepos of Compass.

Tucked away on a one-way street near the beach, Venice Boardwalk, canals and Abbot Kinney’s hot spots, the original 1927 dwelling has 3 beds, 3 baths, and a sizable living room with decorative fireplace, along with a sunken family room with large windows overlooking a newly landscaped, private back yard with koi pond.

The ground level hosts the kitchen, laundry room, and bedroom with direct backyard access, as well as a full bath. On the upper level, there’s a master retreat and a second bedroom. 

Ty Pennington added quite a few special touches to the 2,102-square-foot home, including bamboo flooring, baths adorned in vintage-inspired ceramic tile, a master bath sporting a standalone shower and an antique cast-iron freestanding tub, kitchen with concrete countertops and a wraparound, porcelain-tiled porch. There’s also a beautiful backyard that looks like a great place to entertain guests.

While Ty Pennington did not return to host HGTV’s 2020 version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (which is hosted by Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson), you can catch the two time Emmy award winner in his other home improvement series, Trading Spaces — which recently restarted airing after a 10-year hiatus.

You can also get more tips from the home design expert from his latest book, Good Design Can Change Your Life, which is an intimate look at Ty’s design inspirations and is full of décor advice and tips. While we haven’t yet had the chance to pick up the book ourselves, according to his website the book is part reference, and part behind-the-scenes from Ty’s own home remodeling, which means the Venice home is already a bookshelf hit.
