As autumn approaches, many individuals are searching for new décor to match the upcoming season. Popular themes include homegrown food, forests, vibrant colors, and spicy scents. As companies begin advertising their seasonal items, candles, small animal figurines, and autumn plants rise to the top of the sales. These pieces of décor are inexpensive and trendy, perfect for any bedroom.
Companies such as Yankee Candle and Bath & Body Works produce dozens of new candles throughout September, October, and November. Popular scents include maple, cedar, pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, and cranberry. These candles are sold in a variety of sizes, ranging from as small as 1 ounce to as much as 20-25 ounces. Popular places to store larger candles are on desks, dressers, & nightstands, while smaller candles are frequently found on windowsills & bookshelves.
Although autumn is most frequently associated with trees, woodland creatures are surprisingly in-demand. They are available at any craft store and the majority of online stores with a set of 10 small animals selling for an average of $20. Single animals work well as an addition to a nightstand or beside a jewelry rack, and a group of animals work well framing a larger object, such as a photograph, or along a shelf.
Another bestseller is autumn plants; although outdoor plants are frequently complimented, their indoor cousins receive a fair share of adoration as well. The Dwarf Fothergilla is a fall plant well-known for its vibrant leaves, sporting hues of gold, red, purple, and orange. Pansies flaunt colorful flowers rather than leaves, their most well-known a deep red, almost purple. As plants are larger than candles or figurines, they look best in the corner of a room, on a table or hanging from the ceiling.
