Fall for your Home

Hi All!

Are you ready for Fall and all things pumpkin spice? Well, it’s time to get ready! Deflate the pool floats and pack away the Summer patio decor and get prepped for cooler temps and less sunny days. Where to begin? There is no better place to cozy up than your home, so here are 5 easy tips on how you can do just that, without redesigning your entire home.

Set The Mood

One of the easiest ways to bring a feel of warmth to a space is by turning on the lights – lamps to be specific. Nothing says warm and cozy like a little bit of ambience. Walk through the house and turn on all of the lamps to bring a warm glow to each space in your home.

Warm It Up

When you want to entertain outside – with or without patio weather – consider warming it up for your guests. Light a fire or have candles lit before your guests arrive. Find some indoor-outdoor throw pillows with warm tones and fold up a couple of throws in a basket… just in case.

Deeper Tones and Traditional Prints

When you’re out shopping for seasonal decor or those layers and pillows, keep warm tones in mind. Shocking orange and bright pink are the friends of Summer. Think toasted browns and toned down oranges in buffalo checks, pretty plum and roasted red stripes or moody blues in velvets or woven textures.

Layer Up

A quick and easy way to add a little warmth to a space is by layering textures. Faux fur, plush knits and soft weaves. Place a throw over the arm of your sofa, back of a chair or at the foot of the bed, and voila!, you have luxe and functional layers. Add a plush rug to your existing carpet, or hardwood floor.

Seasonal Decor

Of course, I can’t forget about the traditional decor of Fall. Pumpkins, pine cones, leaves and scented candles. Seasonal decor can definitely help set the mood, but let’s err on the side of not so kitschy! For a chic look, go with white pumpkins instead of orange. For the rustic feel, bring in textures of wood. Instead of the expected pine cones and Autumn leaves, opt for seasonal greenery – like magnolia leaves.
