Who isn’t excited for fall to arrive? The crisp, cool air, the feeling of a new beginning… It’s a magical season if you ask us. There’s just something so special about cozying up with a good book on a rainy day with a burning candle next to you. Well, if you’re someone who loves updating your home decor according to seasons and holidays, we’ve got some tips for you. To make your home the ultimate autumnal oasis, we’ve gathered some design tips to make it as easy as possible!
Choose Natural Colors
To create a cozy and inviting space when the weather gets colder, opt for pieces that are colors that are found in nature. Think brown, green, orange, and other earthy shades. Getting decor in these colors will make your space feel warmer overall.
Bring In More Blankets
Of course, you have to have some fuzzy throw blankets in the living room when it’s colder outside. Who doesn’t want to curl up on the couch and wrap themselves in a soft blanket? Again, when picking out the ones you want, keep to the color scheme you’ve decided on so everything will look cohesive.
Whether you’re looking to update your living room, guest bedroom, or your own bedroom, it’s always fun to add some throw pillows into the mix. If you happen to already have decor pillows, you just have to get some new coverings for them. In fact, it’s a great idea to get new coverings rather than new pillows and just switch them out with each season.
Candles – Everywhere
Okay, maybe not everywhere, but scented or unscented candles are a must-have in the fall. You can make any room in the house feel warmer and more inviting by putting in candles. Just think about it – taking a warm bath with a couple of candles nearby is a whole different experience. Reading in the living room? Light a delicious-smelling candle! It will transform the whole room, believe us.
Bring Nature Inside
You don’t have to bring real branches or leaves inside to make the room feel more autumnal. You can get some fake ones from the shop and get the same effect without the mess. Adding a few natural touches will make the room feel all the more cozy and seasonal. Of course, the best options are branches and autumn leaves to really get you into that fall spirit! Think of arranging branches in vases just like you would flowers.
Play With Texture
To make a room feel warmer, use fabrics like wool and knit on pillows and blankets. You can get a chunky knit blanket, wool pillow covers, velvet couch covers, and so on. Aside from being warmer, the fabrics themselves will make the space look more inviting and cozy.
Cozy Up Your Backyard
Just because the temperature outside is getting cooler doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the crisp fall weather! To make your outdoor area just as inviting as the inside, get some string lights, fuzzy blankets, and lanterns. If you want to add that special extra touch, you can place small pumpkins around as well.
Of course, plaid is practically a staple fall pattern. If you want a more rustic feel to the room you’re decorating, opt for plaid-patterned pillowcases or blankets. Just be careful not to overdo it as it can overpower other decor pieces.
