This also comes with the added bonus that it will do a much better job at hiding any wine spills that will inevitably happen during a entertaining dinner party! You could even finish off the look with some deep autumn leave red candles for a truly autumn ambiance.  
  1. Decorate with Nature

Branches can be but into vases for a subtler look, or for a more rustic feel go large with some well-placed branches perched about the room.  Just remember not to over do it or else it will come off looking messy and gimmicky. But when done right a few small accents of nature here and there are a quick and effective ways of effortlessly getting your home ready for the autumn. >>image<< Another quick fall trick you can do is to fill a wide bowl with spices such a clove, cinnamon, star anise and dried fruit. Place this bowl on a coffee or kitchen table and sit back relax and allow the delicious autumn scents to fill your home with rich earthy aromas. You can also choose to put some candles into the bowl. This will create a soft smoky smell that fills your home with the fragrances of fall.

The way to choose light bulbs with a warm ambiance is to look at the Kelvin (K). The lower the Kelvin number the warmer the light, so a light with 1800K will give off a warm sunset light while a light with 5000K will produce a cold and bluish hue. Choosing old vintage looking light bulbs will also give your home a more relaxing and inviting feeling. This is great for lighting up those shorter daylight days when you’ll be using you lights a lot more.
