You can also find different decorations and configure them in different patterns. Why not invite some friends over and have a party where you come up with different creations to place around your apartment? That might give them some ideas on what to do with their own place.
Add Some Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are another easy way to add some fall flavor throughout your apartment. Find some big ones to put in front of the TV or smaller ones to give that old couch a little extra pizzazz.
