Fall is definitely in the air with gorgeous changing leaves to the aroma of pumpkin spice candles, muffins straight out of the oven, and a warm glow from your fireplace. With all this autumnal bliss, your home décor should reflect warm colors and soft textures that will make you crave cuddling up with a hot cider and good book. Create a relaxing fall vibe with the following chic home decorating tips that will bring cozy autumn comfort into your home.
There’s nothing like a warm cardigan to bring a sense of coziness and layer to your wardrobe. The way we decorate our homes is very much like building a fall wardrobe. Consider changing up your home décor by switching out accent pillows to warm color tones, plaid patterns, and rich textures such as velvet, woven knit, or buttery soft leather. Stacks of throw blankets are a must for nights curled up on the sofa and are an easy way to bring a bit of that warmth and softness to your home by adding visual layers and textures.
The effect of lighting is often overlooked in its ability to create mood in a space. There are three layers of lighting that create harmony in a room: ambient lighting which provides overall illumination, task lighting for activities such as reading or working, and accent lighting, which draws attention to an object such as art or creates drama. Consider using warm lighting in table lamps or floor lamps which cast light indirectly to the ceiling creating a subtle warm glow. A lingering guest that can’t get over the welcoming sense of “at home-ness” they feel in your home is the highest compliment.
Art Of Nature
It goes without saying that the colors of fall are breathtaking with deep reds, golden ocre, and vibrant shades of orange but don’t just stick to the traditional palette. Use moody colors such as warm terracotta, subtle olive, and rich brown in fall vase arrangement. Oak branches with golden leaves, pampas grass, olive branches, or harvest berry stems are just a few of the many faux autumn plants that
will not only add texture and color, but will make a stylish impression all season. When displayed on an entry console, coffee table, or kitchen island, these seasonal plants will add to your overall home décor.
Using fabric textures, artwork, accessories, and lighting are all integral in creating a beautifully designed home but don’t overlook the impact of your own personal style. Display the watercolor artwork you bought on a trip to San Francisco or your grandmother’s hand-stitched quilt; these are the treasures that make a home feel thoughtfully and stylistically curated.
Home vs House
Every home should feel unique from the structural finishes to the accessories on the coffee table.
