With Autumn right around the corner, we’ve got your next season style preview to transition your house from Summer to Fall in easy and affordable ways.
Intuition: Close your eyes, think about what Fall means to you.The orange, red, yellow of the leaves falling with the wind, the earthy brown of a pine comb, the rich red and velvet smoothness of a glass of wine at the end of a cold night, that cinnamon apple cider donuts, the warm blanket and romantic embrace of sitting next to a fireplace. Whatever you like, it’s possible to turn your house into a cozy Fall home. The most important is being comfortable, warm and inspired in your own home.
Seasonal Decor: If you want to get your house in that Fall vibe, any of these will do the trick, and the treat. Incorporate these elements in your kitchen table, living room, patio, anywhere you want.
- Motives: Pumpkins, pine cones, twigs, hydrangeas, grains, leaves, flowers.
- Colors: more on the warm side, like yellow, orange, burnt orange, wine, red, brown, olive green
- Textures: Flannel, plush, faux fur, velvet, and other soft textures, also contrasting sometimes with the rough and natural fibers like linen and hemp on decorations and table settings.
- Prints: chevron, tribal, equestrian, wild animals, maple leaf.
Candles: Lighting helps a lot when making the house more inviting. Warm lights from candles and tea lights are the best, since they also bring the fire and warmth element. If you’re careful about them, have as many as you want. There’s no situation that can’t be improved by adding some romantic candles.
Bedding: Time to change the Summer bedding into a warmer one. Colors are important too. For a bed that invites you in to cozy up, stay away from the cool and cold white from Summer. Instead, come to the warm side of the color chart. Invest in a set from a more adventurous and sophisticated color, if you like. This is the central piece in your bedroom, so go bold and choose something special for Fall.
Scents: In addition to scented candles in Fall inspirations, it’s also good to add home fragrances , oil diffusers or even prepare your own. For a traditional Fall smell, add a cup of apple cider and one of water to a small pan, along with a spoon of cinnamon and some cloves. With that spicy apple pie aroma, your home will be scentsational.
Fireplace: What is more perfect than enjoying some time near a warm fireplace? The whole atmosphere becomes so welcoming and romantic. This is one of those moments that makes you appreciate the simple pleasures in life. Have a professional inspection to avoid hazards and malfunctions, and put some decor on the mantelpiece.
Rugs: The bigger, the better. This tip is even more useful for those who love to walk barefoot inside. With big area rugs, preferentially fluffy and soft, there won’t be any stepping on cold floors.
On budget: One of the easiest ways to change the decoration of an entire room, without changing the furniture and breaking the bank. Luckily, it’s possible to find a huge selection of throws, pillows, blankets for any pocket and taste. Any of the Fall prints, textures and colors can work amazingly.
Fall outside: It’s not Winter yet and your yard hasn’t turned into a snow mountain playground. Even though it’ll get cooler, there’s no excuse for stopping your outdoor parties and entertainment. Over patio furniture, throw some blankets, pillows and maybe even scarves, all on the seats. A fire pit or fireplace would be perfect, but by having comfortable blankets around you’ll already assure that when your guests get chilly, they can easily warm up. It’s all about enjoying the best and most beautiful parts of Fall, with the ones you care for.
