Fall is quite possibly the best camping season of all. The air is crisp, the leaves change into beautiful hues of red, orange, and yellow, and the mosquitoes have finally taken a hike. As summer fades and the cooler temperatures set in, it’s also time to change up your RV decor from light and airy to warm and cozy.
Here are some easy ways to decorate your RV this fall camping season.
Layered in Cozy
Nothing says cozy like soft throw pillows and cuddle-worthy blankets. As temperatures cool off, make your RV feel extra “homey” by layering up your bed, sofa, and camp chair with these basic creature comforts. Pair different textures for added depth. Chenille, velvet, and plush fabrics in warm colors like terracotta, burgundy, and olive are the perfect accents to give your RV a touch of fall.
Festive Front Door
Give your RV autumnal curb appeal with a festive wreath. A wreath on your door is an easy way to dress up the outside of your RV and invite fall into your home-on-wheels. Find a wreath with pops of warm colors, flannel, pinecones, pumpkins, dried or faux maple leaves, or other elements of nature.
Smells like Fall
Fall is associated with some of the best smells of all — buttery pumpkin, apple cinnamon, warm vanilla, cloves, pecan pie, chai, sandalwood, bonfires, and more. Something about walking into your RV and smelling those delicious fall scents is comforting and wonderful.
The glowing warmth of a candle sets the seasonal ambiance. If a real candle sounds like a fire hazard to you, consider a scented flameless candle that can be controlled with a remote. Place your candle on a decorative tray and make it a centerpiece in your kitchen, dining area, or your RV outdoor space.
Big Comfy Chair
After an all-day adventure of hiking and leaf peeping, you’ll need a comfy chair to kick back and relax on at your campsite. Or on a crisp, cold fall day, snuggle up inside your RV in a MacSports Club Chair, grab a book and watch the leaves slowly fall from the trees outside your window. This spacious, padded chair can be used indoors or outdoors and comes in fall colors like brown, navy, tan, and olive.
Not sure what chair is the best chair for you? No worries. Check out the RVers Guide to Choosing the Best Camp Chair.
Bring the Outside In
One of the best parts about fall is that you can’t help but notice nature a little bit more. With the changing season comes colorful leaves, ripe and juicy apples, unique-looking gourds and pumpkins, with acorns and pine cones. Take a fall hike and go foraging for the best-looking leaves or the biggest acorn and pine cones.
Go the pick-your-own route at the orchard or pumpkin patch. Then add those elements to natural woven baskets or water hyacinth baskets for beautiful centerpieces on your RV dining table or countertop. It’s an easy way to bring a piece of fall into your RV.
Stylish Pots for Soup Season
Fall means soup season! From creamy potato stew to butternut squash soup and white chicken chili, the cooler temperatures are a great excuse to take out the porcelain pots and cook up the ultimate comfort food.
Add a touch of fall to your kitchen with the Rachael Ray Cucina 12-Piece Porcelain Cookware Set which fittingly comes in pumpkin orange, or pick up any set of pots & pans and get started on fall comfort food. If you enjoy cooking on the campfire, then bust out the dutch oven and try these seven campfire soups to make over the fire.
