Set the Scene with a 5-Minute DIY

"A centerpiece--whether it's on your coffee table, dining room table or in a breakfast nook--is an easy way to make a big impact. I like cutting apart grapevine wreaths and placing them around a tall candle in a large vase. It takes just a few minutes to put together, and it costs less than $10." -- Kelly Rowe, founder of LiveLaughRowe.com

"Pumpkins can be used for far more than just jack-o'-lanterns. Fill them with fresh, vibrant flowers or tuck a bottle of cold apple cider inside and you have something that is entirely unexpected." -- Abby Larson, editor and founder of StyleMePretty.com

"I'm seeing a lot of people turn to colors like orange and deep red, colors that had been unfashionable for a while. To help delineate the seasons in your home, use pillows. Get your big statement piece, like the couch, in a solid, neutral color; you can do wonderfully light linen pillows in the summer and then exchange them for something a bit more wintry--like plaid, corduroy or faux fur. Some pillows are as inexpensive as $20 or $30, and they instantly change the vibe of a room." -- Martyn Lawrence Bullard, author of Live, Love & Decorate

"The inclusion of antique mirrors anywhere--for example, one over the fireplace--is a way to add big accents, but you could extrapolate that idea with antique-mirror lamps or vases. Mirrors soften a room, but they also add glitter and light while expanding the room. It's a grand inspiration at any budget point." -- Celerie Kemble, author of Black and White (and a Bit in Between): Timeless Interiors, Dramatic Accents, and Stylish Collections

"Nothing brings a room to life like flowers--they are always the best new decorating idea! At the supermarket, deli or farmers' market in the fall you can find zinnias, dahlias, branches with berries or a pot of rosemary. For about $10 a week, you can have fresh flowers in your home every day." --Deborah Needleman, co-author of The Perfectly Imperfect Home: How to Decorate and Live Well

"Apple wood, cherry wood and perry wood are all firewood that put out a gorgeous smell, slightly different than classic firewood...They even smell good pre-burned, so pile unused logs into a great-looking bag and enjoy them for even longer." -- Abby Larson, editor and founder of StyleMePretty.com

"Dark colors are in this fall, and leather continues to be a popular choice. Bonded leather...is durable, comes in many finishes and colors and is less expensive than genuine leather." -- Francesc Zamora Mola, author of 150 Best New Apartment Ideas
