Fall is here! Today marks the first day of Autumn, where apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes, and oversized sweaters abound. I switched up a few things around the house in the Summer by adding blue & white accents throughout the main living areas. I have no idea what took me so long, considering blue is my absolutely favorite color, but I’m loving it and plan to keep this look going through the seasons. That doesn’t mean, however, that I don’t plan to switch things up with the change of seasons. So while I’m working on that over here, I thought I’d share ideas with you on how to refresh your home for Fall.
I always have my clients focus on the feeling they would like to convey or evoke in their homes and plan the designs from there. And in taking my own advice, for Fall I’m focusing on warming up the space to add a cozy element to our home. Yes, I’ll still have orange pumpkins and warm Fall tones, but I just need to make sure they mesh well with the blue & white elements we have going on.
Here are some tips for how you can bring the Fall season into your home.
- Add greenery common to the season. The changing colors of the leaves are probably one of the most notable attributes of Fall. It makes perfect sense to bring some of that greenery inside the home, as well. As far as I’m concerned, plant life (faux or real) is the best way to finish off the design of a space. Using branches with orange, red, and green leaves is a surefire way to get your space to say “Fall”.
- Incorporate textures of the season. What says “Fall” more than chunky knit sweaters? When I think of the season, I immediately think of wrapping up in my warmest, comfiest sweaters. This same feeling can be conveyed in interior decor by way of throw blankets and pillows.
- Use colors of the season. By simply bringing in the colors of the season, that will help your space feel fresh and current. Many of the warm and neutral tones, like taupe, burgundy, sage, pumpkin, and brown, go a long way to evoke the mood of the season.
I hope you find these tips helpful in bringing the Fall season into your interior decor. And, honestly, these 3 tips will work for any season of the year. If you’ve found these ideas helpful or if you’d like to share your tips, let me know in the comments.
