How can I decorate for fall for cheap?

For inspo, try searching your attic, secondhand stores, or even your own backyard. Katrina Morris of Katrina and Company says, “The most popular trends I am seeing for fall is the use of natural elements. Bringing the outdoors in with texture, wood tones, and greens. Decor that is organic and not fussy. A stack of books with a wood bowl on top or a vase with branches can elevate a space for the early fall season.” Hart Neely of Elm & Iron suggests “adding in simple seasonal botanical stems and updating textiles around the home to spruce up your space heading into fall.”

Another option is to pair rust color napkins with a rattan-wrapped vase full of fall branches to create a beautiful and simple tablescape.” Neely also says that for fall 2021, “Distressed brass continues to be a strong trend. We’re seeing more burgundy this year along with velvet and warm caramel leathers in upholstery and pillows.”
