Fall is officially here! As interior designers we love to change up a living space per the season. Fall brings a host of color and design styles, but sometimes it can be hard to bring it all together. Whether you want to completely re imagine your home for fall or just add a few touches, here are 6 ways to invite fall into your home.
Update With New Accent Pillows
As the weather gets cooler, the family will start spending more and more time indoors. Cozy up your living room sofas and chairs with plush throw pillows in different shapes, sizes, textures, and patterns. Comfy accessories add visual interest to your living room, plus they’ll emit a warm, inviting tone perfect for the season. Create custom pillows and choose from thousands of fabrics from one of our many upholstery lines, or if you’re on a tighter budget, let us help you select some ready-made pillows from one of our fantastic accessory lines!
Layer Area Rugs
Layering area rugs is an easy way to add color and texture to your floors. Plus, the extra cushioning and warmth will ensure your feet avoid cold tile and hardwood floors during the Fall/Winter months. There are no set-in-stone rules when creating this look, just make sure the bottom rug is larger than the throw rug in top to show off the layering effect.
Change Out Your Summer Shades
During the warmer months you may depend on Bamboo Roman shades or breezy drapes to cover your windows. But as the cool weather approaches, trade out your light and airy treatments for some that offer more insulation and natural coziness. In this living room, rich ikat draperies over bamboo shades add vibrancy to the rooms gold and chocolate color palette while emitting a natural warmth within the space.
Light It Up!
With cooler weather and shorter days, daylight becomes a rare commodity until Spring rolls around. Take advantage of early night fall and embrace the darkness by adding candle holding accessories. The ambiance will help relieve stress and anxiety after a long day at work. (Uttermost wall-hung candle holder can be ordered from Wisdom/Frost Interiors)
Swap Out Summer Bedding
It’s time to stow the summer quilt and bring back the heavy-duty down comforter and thermal blankets. If you want to save money on your utility bill during colder months, set the thermostat to 62 degrees or below while sleeping, or away from home. To add an extra hint of luxury, a fur throw is always divine.
Add Seasonal Warmth To Your Table
Stow away everyday dishes and pull out your seasonably themed pieces, in warm autumn tones. Adding a custom floral centerpiece to your favorite vase, bowl or decorative urn will further enhance your décor and help spice it up!
