As the seasons change, so may your decorations! When living in an apartment, you may not have the space to spare for extra clutter, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still go all out! Bring in the beauty of fall with these practical, autumn-inspired décor items!

1. Pillows, Blankets, and Throws

Blankets and pillows are certainly a highlight of the fall season. Keep warm and decorate for autumn by putting comfy blankets and decorative pillows out for display.

You might also consider trying prints with leaves, pumpkins, or apples to make your home extra cozy.


2. Fall Scented Candles and Essential Oils

Introducing fall-scented candles to your home is an easy way to create a cozy vibe. If you are not allowed to burn candles in your apartment, you can try diffusers as an alternative. Some classic fall scents include pumpkin, spiced apple, and cinnamon.

Consider only burning one scent at a time.


3. String Lights

Mini pumpkins are the perfect solution to this, as they can be purchased in all different colors, shapes, and sizes. They are often available at grocery stores and local farms. Consider using them to decorate your mantle, tables, windowsills and more!
