We may not want to admit it, but summer is on the way out. As temperatures drop and leaves turn, it’s time to embrace the beauty of fall. Celebrate the season with some fall décor changes to keep things cozy and comfortable. It’s not time to move indoors yet, but consider adding cozy throws to your patio furniture, and moving your seating into a more protected area, like under a porch. Get the rest of your home ready for the season with our 10 fall décor tips.
- Switch to warmer colors on dishtowels, napkins and tablecloths.
- Add some mums, or other seasonal blooms in sunny windowsills.
- Bring on the candles. Fall is the perfect time to restock your candle supply.
- Grab some dried flowers, or the first fall leaves and arrange them in a wood bowl or cool vase.
- Take summer’s flowers out of that fireplace and have it cleaned and serviced for cooler weather.
- Unpack the heavy wool throws and rich cotton blankets for cozy evenings.
- Layer on another area rug. Nothing makes a room feel warmer or more cozy.
- Swap summer’s towels for big, thirty organic cotton bath sheets in fall colors.
- Introduce some texture to your bedding with rich weaves and embroidered trim.
- Put out bird feeders for those fall flights of feathered friends.
You don’t have to change your entire world to achieve a new look and feel for the season. A little goes a long way. Simply adding accents in rich colors, swapping to heavier throws and bringing in warm layers will create the cozy sense of fall. Want to take it a step further? Add seasonal scents like cinnamon, apple, cedar or pine.
Go ahead and embrace the season. Early fall is the perfect time to keep enjoying your outdoor living space, but swap out the lemonades and margaritas for hot cocoa and toddys. Check your farmer’s market, or your own garden, for seasonal blooms and the freshest fall produce and plan a party around the harvest season’s bounty.
As the season progresses, pumpkins and gourds make their appearance (and you don’t have to go country to make them work!) and it’s time to light the fires and move indoors.
