Your new San Antonio home in Settlers Ridge at Kinder Ranch is the perfect new home for your new life. As summer winds down and the cool air seeps into shortening days, bring the warm colors of fall into your home with these beautiful and simple decorating projects.
Pumpkins and gourds are an easy fall inspiration to add to the rustic beauty of your new garden home. Mix any size, shape or color of these elements together across your mantel and place them on your front steps to welcome the season and your new neighbors. Construct a fall wreath out of miniature pumpkins, using cream colors for a modern look or brightly colored orange ones for Halloween.
Make a garland out of oversized pine cones from your local craft store and incorporate magnolia or greenery as summer wanes.
When mid-October approaches, replace the floral elements with the fun colors of Halloween and do the same with warm colors of the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. When decorating for fall it’s easy to get multiple transitions with a little bit of planning.
Don’t let spring and summer be the only time of year that you spend time using your outdoor spaces. You have a beautiful outdoor living space in Settler’s Ridge. Make your patio space warm and cozy and spend time outside with your family and friends on cooler days and nights. Switch out your outdoor summer pillows to ones with rich fall colors. Add a couple of throw blankets so that it’s easy to grab something to keep you warm on a crisp night. Use interesting boxes, crates, metal buckets or baskets to place firewood in and set in my patio space. This is also a great time to go ahead and find the perfect fire pit for your yard or patio. Your local home center has already stocked them.
Lastly, try adding lanterns and candles to both your outdoor living area and the inside of your new home. The soft glow of candles in your newly decorated space will make it more inviting to you and your guests.
