Fall Fixes for First Time Home Buyers in Lancaster

Not sure how to decorate your new Keystone Custom Home for the upcoming fall season? Don’t want it to look like orange and black took over or spend too much money redecorating the entire house? Whether you’ve lived in the same house for 15 years or are a first time home buyer in Lancaster, here are a couple simple tricks to style your home for the approaching cool weather.


Switching your summer linen pillows and bright throw blankets from your couch to luxe velvet pillows in fall shades with coordinating blankets will make your guests want to curl up next to the fireplace. You can also do this trick for your guest rooms if you’re expecting company. Also, swapping your usual flowers for orange carnations and sunflowers (or other orange and yellow toned floras) will brighten up the room while keeping the fall vibe.

Give a nearby shelf or any colorless surface its fall fix by adding a pop of color. Whether they’re from the craft store or the backyard, sprinkling it with autumn leaves, adding a small pumpkin or filling a vase full of fall decor are all easy ways to animate any flat surface.

Front Porch

A fall toned wreath hanging on your front door lets neighbors know that you’re in a festive fall mood. A mixture of orange, red, gold and brown toned leaves, ribbons, moss, burlap or any rustic decoration would be perfect for your door. Buy it at local stores or, if you’re feeling crafty, find a DIY on Pinterest!

What are the first things people think of when they hear “October?” They think of Halloween, pumpkins and Jack O’ Lanterns, of course. Put various sized pumpkins next to your front door, whether you and the family carved them, they’re decorated with glitter or just a plain pumpkin; this is a simple way to liven up your front porch.

These are all simple and easy ways to prepare your home for fall. Many more can be found by exploring websites such as HGTV, Pinterest and more. Don’t have a home to decorate? Let us help you find the perfect one! Put website here.
