With fall right around the corner, we’re quickly gearing up for another season full of holidays, hot chocolate by the fire, and cozy oversized sweaters. And as the seasons begin to change, we may be thinking about how we want to make our home seem more cozy and inviting.
Here at Brock Builders, your custom home designers for Asheville, we’re passionate about making the world a greener place. Therefore, we thought it would be fun to share some sustainable fall decorating ideas with you.
Pumpkins and Gourds
Nothing says fall quite like pumpkins and gourds. What’s great is that these never-out-of-style fall decorations are completely edible and compostable. Head to your local farmer’s market to pick some up to bring new life and seasonal spirit to your home. Or maybe you’re super awesome and you grew some in your garden this year! No matter where you get them, you’re sure to feel fall and festive with these eco-friendly decorations.
Fall is one of the best seasons to hike, especially here in the Western Carolinas. Bring your family and friends for a fun day outside and make it a game to try and find whatever fall-inspired nature you can bring back with you to your home. In the spirit of being sustainable, aim to bring only what you have found on the ground and leave the living plants alone. If you’re feeling extra creative, you can bust out the glue gun and make a craft day with your findings!
Candles are a great way to make your home feel more cozy for fall and to brighten your home as the days begin to shorten through winter. For a truly sustainable approach, make sure that you buy your candles from local suppliers that use all natural ingredients. There are certainly many wonderful places to choose from in the Asheville area.
We hope these suggestions have gotten you just as excited about fall decorating as we are. Brock Builders looks forward to serving you with all of your green building home needs. Happy fall to all!
