Ahhh… fall is in the air. Even though Florida’s weather doesn’t transition to autumn the way it does throughout most of the country, Floridians can still sense that fall is on its way. And what better way to welcome fall than by giving your home a seasonal refresh?
Fortunately, transitioning your home from summer to fall doesn’t have to take a lot of work or money. You’ll “fall” in love with these seven chic and inexpensive decorating ideas.
