After long, hot days of summer, we’re all ready for a chill breeze and cozy fall feelings. Keep your house on par with the season by transitioning from summer to fall. Here are a few ways to get you started!
Out with the old, in with the new. When transitioning your home from summer to fall, the first thing you should do is to put all of your summer decorations in storage! Next, you want to set the Autumn mood with fall-scented candles such as pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or caramel apple. If you’re looking for a fun DIY project to complement those scented candles, we suggest making potpourri. There are many recipes to experiment with online! Another great way to get into the spirit of fall is by adorning your front door with an autumn-inspired wreath! Wreaths are not only for the holidays; in fact, many people have different wreaths to celebrate each of the four seasons! Don’t stop there; pay tribute to the fall spirit by taking inspiration from nature for decorations inside your home. Create festive fruit baskets with colorful seasonal fruits!
Speaking of decorations, let’s discuss the many fantastic ways in which you can transition your home for the season. You’ll want to start by changing your curtains and throw pillows to match your new, warm-toned color scheme. Enjoy adorning your home with flowers? Transition those bright, summer-inspired flowers for deeper, rich-colored flowers such as Chrysanthemums. Switch your dining room table décor, linens, and dishware to match the theme. Don’t forget the kitchen towels! When switching décor to match the theme, keep in mind that warm tones work best for this season. Fall is the most incredible season for creative DIY decorating projects, so feel free to spice up your house with homemade decorations that match the overall look you’re going for; think pumpkins!
Nothing screams fall like the crackling of a fire and the warm glow of the fireplace. As the colder weather creeps up on you, make sure you have the fireplace prepped and ready for action! Make sure you have a substantial wood supply, fire starter, and the right tools. If it doesn’t get cold enough where you live, an arrangement of candles in different sizes can be used to substitute a raging fire; it’ll give off similar effects and will add warmth to your space. Don’t forget to add a little autumn flare to your fireplace mantle; candles, acorns, a garland, you name it!
Fall is the season to curl up with your loved ones and the season for blankets! Add soft and cozy blankets all around your house. Blankets are a staple in the transition from summer to fall; they add texture to your home and serve a purpose outside of décor. The way you choose to store your blankets also contributes to the overall look of your home, so be creative with it! For homeowners with hardwood floors, we suggest incorporating rugs to help bring warmth to your home.
