Refreshing your guest space for fall by integrating cozy colors and autumnal accents is a thoughtful way of making company feel more welcome. With just a few room edits, it's easy to create a gracious environment with seasonal touches that your guests are sure to notice.
One of our favorite (and one of the easiest!) ways to refresh a room is with seasonal bedding. Truth be told, most of your guests' time in their room will be spent in bed, so treat them to comfy bedding like Target's Threshold Contrast Stitch Bedding. The stitching reminds us of a cozy fall quilt and the neutral shade will match almost any fall accents and decorative touches you have planned for the rest of the space. For a special touch, sprinkle two to three drops of essential oil (clove or cinnamon are great picks for fall) on a white cloth and toss it into the dryer along with your bedding. Your guests will love the subtle reminder of the season as they drift off to sleep. In addition to four bed pillows (two medium/firm and two soft should ensure your guests' pillow preferences are taken care of!), consider an accent pillow or two to spice up your guest bed for fall. The Target Home Square Toss Pillow in orange plaid is a great fall find and is handy for neck support when reading in bed. Your guests will also appreciate having a comfy throw on hand for afternoon naps or chilly morning ventures to the kitchen for coffee. The Target Home Purple Variegated Stripe Throw is the perfect weight for fall and its rich eggplant tones instantly add a luxurious color touch to an armchair or bed.
Fall weekend hikes and apple picking tend to bring home more than just colorful leaf souvenirs and fresh produce. Stop mud in its tracks and help your guests keep things tidy by providing them with a doormat at their room's threshold. This Threshold Door Mat in tan provides a gentle reminder for guests to wipe their feet and offers a place for shoes and boots to dry after a fall drizzle.
Fresh, plush guest towels are the ultimate way to make visitors feel cared for and welcome! At only $9.99, Thomas O'Brien Bath Towels are hardly a splurge, yet the rich tones (we like 'gold charm' and 'scarlet bloom' for fall) will give your guest bathroom a luxe fall feel. Also, don't forget to top off your supply of guest toiletries. Consider buying simple soap pumps in coordinated fall colors, such as these to decant essentials like shampoo and lotion into. They are very affordable and a simple homemade label will tell your guests what's inside.
A quirky seasonal touch like this Patch Mushroom Candle, part of the Patch NYC collection for The Shops at Target , is another small addition that will make your guest space feel like fall. And why not greet your guests with a simple fall treat? Purchase a rustic wire basket and fill it with fresh apples, pears, or other seasonal treats from a local market for an accent that is both decorative and delicious.
These small changes take almost no time at all, but are sure to create a warm welcome for any guests you have coming to visit this fall. For more fall home inspiration, check out the Target Home Fall Catalog.
