As summer ebbs into fall, the temperatures outside aren’t the only thing that’s changing. As the seasons shift and cooler weather approaches, we tend to want to create spaces within our homes that are a little bit cozier and a little bit warmer as a response to what is going on out of doors. Transitioning your home from summer into fall can be accomplished in just a few simple steps. By rethinking some items in your home and bringing in a few new statement pieces, you can convey the cool, crisp and dreamy days of autumn in every corner of your home.
Add layers: This is the time to add a nubby throw to the back of your favorite arm chair. Place a dramatic blanket at the foot of your bed. Add a unique area rug to the spot where your toes hit the floor in the morning as you rise from slumber. These layers are meant to convey warmth, security, comfort and coziness. Add tasteful layers to strategic spots in your home and watch your space transform.
Combine textures: A furry throw blanket atop a beautifully patterned bed covering. A velvety toss pillow nestled in chair featuring stunning fabric. A dynamic table cloth layered with statement napkins and matchless dinnerware, all in varying patterns. Don’t be afraid to combine textures and patterns as the seasons turn. While summer is a time for stark white simplicity and cool accent colors, autumn is a time for the sumptuous combination of deep colors, rich textures and stylish looks that convey beauty and luxury.
Incorporate natural elements: Feature a stunning bouquet from the market in a unique vase. Showcase some statement stems or dramatic branches from your own outdoor space in a lovely pitcher. Natural elements bring beauty and dimension to your home any time of year, but as autumn approaches, they echo the changing of the seasons and bring the outside in.
Include candles: Whether you choose traditional candles or their battery-operated counterparts (which can be equally stunning and beautiful!), candles automatically bring a soft light to any space and deliver matchless warmth and special atmosphere. Highlight special dining, living or slumber spaces with carefully placed candleholders to add a special sparkle.
Transitioning your home from summer to fall doesn’t have to be complicated. Remember to add warmth and coziness by way of textures, patterns, accessories and intentional item placement. The addition of a few dramatic statement pieces to your home and the careful placement of well-loved items can create a beautiful cozy seasonal space that conveys all of the joys of the season.
