Fall Decor: Do You Hear That? (The Sounds of the Season)

The sounds of fall - boots in leaves

Incorporating the Sounds of the Season Into Your Home

This week we have been talking about incorporating seasonal elements that appeal to our five senses (sight, smell, sound, taste, feel) into our homes.

Sounds aren’t something we always think about when decorating our homes, yet they have the power to impact our experience in either a positive or negative way – have you ever lived next to a construction zone or a yapping dog? Have you ever stayed at a hotel next to the ocean where you can hear the waves or camped next to a river? Sound, just like the other senses, has the ability to enrich our experiences.

Some of the sounds I associate with autumn are the crackle of a fireplace, wind blowing through the trees, dried leaves crunching on the ground, kids playing, rain falling on the roof, and families united for the holidays playing flag football. What sounds do you associate with fall?  What are your favorites?



Ways You Can Incorporate Sound Into Your Home

  • Light a Fire in the Fireplace
  • Play Your Favorite Music
  • Crack Some Windows So You Can Hear the Rain
  • Put Up A Wind Chime Outside
  • Turn on A Sound Machine
  • Go for a Walk Through the Leaves



Happy homemaking,

Mrs. B Signature
