Autumn has set in at the Lake of the Ozarks. The leaves are slowly changing and the nights are getting chilly. If you live at the Lake of the Ozarks year round, or if you are still visiting your second home during the fall, you will want to spruce up your living space for the new season. Isla Del Sol has a five fall decorating ideas to get your condo at the Lake of the Ozarks ready for the season.
Greet your guests before they come in with a beautiful wreath. Whether it is store bought or homemade, adding this decorative piece to your front door will get you ready for sweater season in no time. With fall leaves and other autumn favorites, a decorative wreath is a great way to brighten your entrance way.
2. Get Creative With Pumpkins
Pumpkins are a traditional favorite when it comes to fall decorating ideas. Even if they're not carved for Halloween, pumpkins will sure bring in the autumn season. There are a bunch of different ways to decorate pumpkins, so you will be sure to have a variety on your porch or deck. Pumpkins can be painted, carved, decoupaged, the list could go on. No matter what your fall decorating theme is, you will be sure to be able to decorate your pumpkin to match.
3. Mums The Word
Nothing says autumn more than a bunch of mums beautifully planted in front of your home. Mums are great for condos, as they do well when planted in pots. Whether you have them indoors or outdoors, they are the perfect way to add a pop of color. They are relatively easy to take care of, as they are a hardy fall plant. With the proper care, your mums could last many years in a pot.
Not all fall decorating has to be visual. One of the best ways to bring in the season is to have the scent of autumn sweeping through your home. Candles are an easy way to achieve this and can add to the look of your decor. However, to quickly transport your home into autumn you can boil a pot of spices, such as cinnamon sticks, cloves and nutmeg.
5. Light It Up
Exterior lights are always a great way to add easy curb appeal to any home, including condos! Stringed lights are a great way to add extra light to your covered deck during the summer. However, in the fall, change it up with more decorative lights or adding a fall garland. Autumn is the time when it gets dark early, so adding lights is not only decorative, it's practical too!
Decorating both the inside and outside of your condo is a great way to dive into the new season. When you live in a waterfront condo at the Lake of the Ozarks, you'll want to decorate your deck as well, so boaters can enjoy your seasonal decorations too. At Isla Del Sol, we love seeing the Lake transform into fall.
