Fall marks the beginning of the coziest time of year. As the leaves change and the weather cools down, create a space you’ll love to sink into this fall with these home decorating tips.
Textures & Throws
Whether it’s with friends, family, movies or just a good book, snuggling up with a cozy blanket is a fall must-have. Throw blankets are both functional and decorative, with endless styles, colors and materials to meet your preference. Keep cool with an open knit design or warm up with an extra cozy material like fleece or chenille. For extra relaxation, use a weighted blanket.
Throw blankets and pillows also add layers and textures to any room and allow you to transition a bright, summer space into a cozy fall nest. Jewel tones offer a pop of color that’s rich, warm and elegant. Natural textures like black, grey or brown faux fur provide texture and sophistication to your space.
Embrace Fall Foliage
As summer draws to an end, once-fresh flowers no longer adorn tabletops in the home. Embrace the season and air dry summer bouquets or use preserved arrangements of all kinds of fall foliage. These centerpieces will last throughout the season and can include features like colorful leaves, sunflowers, wheat, pampas grass and more. Bonus Tip: Opt for preserved arrangements with aromatics like eucalyptus or potpourri to make your space extra relaxing.
Cozy Up the Patio
While it may be too cold for backyard barbecues, it’s still patio season with the right preparations. The lack of humidity and heat can even make your outdoor space even more enjoyable in the cooler weather. Bring warmth outdoors with blankets and pillows for your patio furniture and use an outdoor heating feature like a gas fireplace or outdoor heater.
Create Autumn Ambiance
It’s the little things that can help transform a space, especially during the cooler months. Light seasonally scented candles for a warm glow in any room. To make your home extra cozy, set up a simmer pot with apples, oranges and cinnamon to fill the whole house with autumn aromas.
