Fall is on its way and I have to admit this is my favorite season of them all. I love seeing the leaves change, feeling the crisp air on evening walks, and of course I love pulling out the cute jackets and scarfs. If you love the fall transition too, here are some easy, fresh ways to make your living space feel as cozy as your new fall boots.
Want a super easy, quick, cheap and chic way to bring some of the festive fall feeling into your home? Bring the elements in by grabbing a few small branches from your yard to create a dramatic fall centerpiece. Voila! Instance change of mood for your space!
Can we say enough about the power of pillows? I just don’t think we can! Changing up your pillows or even just pillow covers is one of the easiest ways to transform your space for the season. It is great because the cost is so low and there is no commitment. For fall it is nice to really go for that cozy feeling by layering and refreshing throw blankets as well.
Craving a rich color change for fall, but not willing to commit to a new wall color just for the season? Take on a more manageable lower commitment color splash by repainting a great piece of furniture. Take an old piece of furniture to wow buy painting it in a rich saturated fall hue like this gorgeous navy piece.
Changing out and layering window treatments are great ways to create that warm cozy fall feeling in your home. Love the drama created by using these drapes at the entry to the room!
Gallery walls are meant to be free flowing, expressive and changed often! This is a perfect place to refresh your space for fall. Change out the artwork, frames, or both to reflect warmer tones and any subject matter that give you that warm fall feeling.
Don’t be shy! Bring the outdoors in! Inviting what is happening outdoors indoors is a sure fire way to get your home into the spirit of the season. Re-purpose treated stumps as end tables, ottomans and more like this fun entryway installation.
Spotted! In this cozy living room, a spectrum of light green accents certainly perks up the classic white slipcovered furniture and built-ins, but the real jolt comes from the neon throw on the ottoman. Think small and mighty — a dash of neon feels fresh and fun, but it can definitely overwhelm a space in a hurry. (I have plenty of childhood photos that prove this point perfectly!) Here are some of our fave picks to add some pep to your home as the daylight hours start dwindling:
