Fallify Your Home!

It’s here – fall has arrived! My summer sheets have been replaced with a crisp woven blanket and I’m anxiously awaiting my first bonfire.

Whether you love autumn or not (can you tell I do?!), there’s no arguing that it’s a season of transition. Here are a few easy ways to get your home in the fall spirit – in hopes that you’ll follow soon after!:

1. Textiles.
Each spring, I opt to throw my rugs in storage and leave my wood floors bare. Then, when the weather turns, I bring back my cozy sheepskins and jute rugs. Textiles are the easiest way to warm up a space – perfect for those dark, chilly nights!
2. Light.
Replace those bamboo shades and sheer, gauzy window treatments in lieu of a heavy textile to flock your windows. Bonus? Add a fun pattern for an unexpected pop to get you through the seasonal doldrums.
3. Color.
Bring in some jewel tones to accent your existing furnishings. Teal velvety throw pillows, harvest orange table runners and magenta vases make great fall transitional colors that you’ll want to hang on to through spring.
4. Accent.
Fall foliage is beautiful and vibrant, so bring in a few sticks, pinecones and dried leaves to accessorize with nature’s bounty. After all, nature is easily the most affordable upgrade. ;)

Happy autumn, friends!
