Fall is always a magical time. The weather outside becomes moody and encourages us to head indoors, gather, and get cozy. When the world out your window becomes vibrant with the hues of autumn, it is natural to want to bring the colorful outdoors inside. Fall ushers in the holiday season and gives you every reason to add some festivity to your indoor spaces. Here are 5 Ways to Transition from Summer to Fall in your home.
Accessorize with Natural Elements
Fall is all about celebrating the harvest and switching gears to more time indoors. When you accessorize with natural elements by bringing the outdoors in, you add visual interest, texture, and a satisfying feeling of being grounded by the earth. Pinecones, wooden bowls, woven baskets, and gourds are all items that can be incorporated into your home décor. Go ahead and get creative! Mother Nature doesn’t make mistakes!
Add Warm Prints and Colors
When decorating your home for fall, be sure to add plenty of warm prints and colors. The transition from Summer to Fall is all about letting the cool colors of summer go and replacing them with the cozy hues of autumn. When you bring in seasonal flowers and fall greenery, you add life to the space and create a more comfortable and cozier atmosphere indoors. Be bold and duplicate the brilliant display of color the world puts on each fall by incorporating the natural elements in your decor.
Create Fall Vibes
When I think of Fall, I think of hot spiced tea, pumpkin-everything, and curling up on the couch with a good book and snuggly blanket. Adding fall vibes to your home is as simple as switching out your summer weight throws for a more substantial blanket draped over the arm of the couch. Think fall colors and choose something that will be a lovely accent to your current furniture. If you are a fan of all things cinnamon and spice, consider scented candles, a light room freshening plug-in scent, or get in that kitchen and do some fall baking! Scents can affect your mood just as much as visuals. Nothing wrong with creating fall vibes through baked goods! Your family and friends will thank you for spreading fall joy!
When decorating for Fall, don’t neglect adding textures to your space. Bringing in textures like flannels, tweeds, and boucle will add those pops of interest and enhance the cozy vibe you are creating in your home. Layers are an essential part of our fall wardrobes, why not layer textiles in your home too? Nothing feels more luxurious than layering eye-catching textures in the colors of fall. An added bonus is getting to snuggle up when the nights become colder.
Swap out Art
Consider your wall art. A quick way to change the feel of a space is by swapping out your wall art for your transition from summer to fall. Don’t be afraid of bringing in color and adding visual interest for the fall season. When you bring in new art, it is a fabulous way to show the depth of your taste and will add to the vibes you are creating in your home for fall. Don’t feel like you must spend a fortune on art! You can simply take down a print and add a fall wreath in its place. Or consider canvas prints that are inexpensive and easy to swap out when you are ready for something new.
