Update Your Home for Fall With Brooks Nader

Try these simple and affordable updates to transform your space.

Fall decor is… tricky. We’ve all planned out an upscale, rustic farmhouse look that ultimately ended up resembling the set of Hocus Pocus. So, first things first, remember that fall decor and Halloween decor are not the same things. Here to help with the rest is SI Swimsuit model and interior design queen Brooks Nader with her top picks and tips for tastefully updating your space.

“Transitioning your home from summer to fall is super easy -- it’s all about swapping out your current color palette for one with warmer tones,” says Nader, whose home design work you can check out @homebybn. “Something like branches can make all the difference. Feel free to bring in beautiful branches from outside and pop them into a vase. One thing that instantly transitions your home is a pumpkin or fall scented candle. If you don’t have time to swap out all your fabrics and flowers, this will instantly fill your home with all that good fall juju!”
