An artwork can change the mood in any given area in an instant. Display art pieces that depict the said season on your dominant walls in your condo in Manila. Consider a nature-themed painting or sculpture. Oil paintings with oranges, browns, and reds with highlights of golden yellow, rust and burnt umber are some of the best paintings to show. Should you buy one, check out your local garage sales, antique stores and thrift shops first. If you know someone artsy, you may ask him or her to make one for you at a cheaper rate.

2. Use Organic Centerpieces

Go casual or formal with organic, edible centerpieces such as red, green and yellow apples. Add other seasonal fruits as well for that added visual interest. And speaking of which, place table linens or draperies with hints of autumn. Introduce simple color changes like changing slipcovers and throw pillows. Remember, the formality and casualty of the mood that will be created will depend on the fabric, color and texture of the materials that you’ll use. Again, you need not buy these things except for the fruits, of course. Look at your cabinet to determine which among what you currently own will fit the theme and the overall design of your home.

3. Dress Up Areas Of The Home

While, at times, heavy drapes and velvety curtains with autumn colors are all you ever need to spruce up the entire room, some nooks and corners would require additional décors. You may use stalks, straw or raffia and put on specific areas or wrap them around posts and columns and even mason jars. To emphasize the materials, couple them with thick ribbons in colors of browns and deep oranges. Be generous with using these materials after all these are easy to find and inexpensive. Carry the same materials in various parts of your home such as entryways and hallways.

4. Decorate With Lights

Luminaries are the easiest ways to achieve a fall-inspired home. You may use typical or battery-powered candles that you can put inside paper bags with decorative cutouts. But candles aren’t your only option. Lanterns and old, colored Christmas lights make perfect luminaries. No one can go wrong with light décors. However, if you are going to spend for it, invest in quality because they last longer and give you your money’s worth.
