Cooler mornings and evenings can only mean one thing. Fall is here! We love this time of year – watching the leaves turn bright hues of red, orange, and yellow. Fall is an opportunity for rejuvenation, and we need to relax, de-stress and reflect on the things that matter most in our lives. To help with that process, we’ve compiled a list of some fun and creative ways you can cozy-up your home.
Introduce Outdoor Clippings
Nothing is more welcoming than fresh foliage. Bring the outdoors into your home this Fall with clippings of dried grasses or leaves. They will add a burst of intrigue and warmth into your home by acting as a gentle reminder of the cold days that lay ahead with winter. If you love color, think about adding mums which come in vibrant whites, reds, oranges, and yellows. Mums mimic the colors of the Fall leaves and have a long life, so they do not need replacing as often as fresh cut flowers.
When you think about Fall, what comes to mind? Chances are you think about sweaters and scarves that keep you warm in the evenings. Add some plaid to rooms in your home where you want to exude that feeling of warmth and coziness. Whether it be throw pillows, blankets, or decorations, plaid is a great way to add a new level of depth to a room.
Pile on the Pumpkins
There are few things more synonymous with the Fall than pumpkins. Pumpkins come in a variety of shapes, sizes and color schemes, which make them a perfect decoration for every household. Don’t be afraid to pile on the pumpkins both inside and outside your home. Place pumpkins inside your fireplace, stack them on a sideboard or bunch them together as a centerpiece on your dining room table. Wherever you choose to showcase your pumpkins, don’t hold back.
Introduce Dark Candles
Candles are a wonderful way to set the seasonal tone in your home. During the Fall, why not try to embrace the changing season by adding dark colored candles like burgundy, navy or forest? Darker colored candles will not detract from the other decorations and will add an even cozier feeling to the mix when lit. And, if you enjoy aromatic candles, why not light a traditional pumpkin spice or vanilla latte scented candle in the evenings to unwind and relax after a long day?
