5 Easy Ways to Transition Your Home for Fall
Fall is in full swing, which ushers in a multitude of ways to celebrate this season, whether you’re amping up your home decor or swapping out textiles for optimal coziness. Here are five easy ways to transition your home for fall this season.
Embrace the fall colors.
With the summer months behind us, it’s time to pack away your bright yellow and other similarly colored decor to welcome the warmer earth and jewel tones. From burnt orange to plum and forest green to ruby red, there’s a broad palette of colors that you can easily incorporate into your home whether you add a new throw pillow or a new piece of wall art.
Change out your linens and drapes.
Since the fall season brings in cooler temperatures, you want to ready your home for fall by changing out your bedding and curtains. When it comes to your curtains, stow away your lighter, more sheer curtains and opt for heavier drapes made of wool or velvet to insulate the heat, yet remain chic, in your rooms. For your bedding, swap out your cotton or linen sheets for flannel ones to help keep the heat in, too. And if you’re looking for an extra fall-ish vibe in your bedrooms, add a faux fur throw or thick, crocheted blanket at the end of your bed.
Add cozy textiles in the living room.
While you can add faux fur items in your living spaces, you can also take the extra step to ready your home for fall by adding cozy textiles to these rooms. If you have a more lightweight, indoor-outdoor rug, change up the room by adding a modern shag rug, or similar, to the space. Layering the softer rugs atop the lightweight rugs also makes a chic and cozy effect.
Incorporate autumnal decor.
The best thing about transitioning your home for fall is that you don’t have to break the bank. It wouldn’t be fall without some pumpkins and gourds in the home. Welcome a few pumpkins into your home on your mantel or out on your porch. You might even add a nice seasonal arrangement to your dining table or a fallish wreath on your front door. And what’s fall without some mums! These lovely flowers always signal that the season is here, and they’re not too hard on the wallet.
Make way for the fall attire.
Colder weather also means you’ll be layering more outerwear. Once you’ve returned from the apple orchards or fall hikes, make sure you have a place to stow away your muddy boots. Boots and other footwear can be stowed along a drip tray so that you don’t end up tracking anything in your home. Then you’ll surely need a place to hang your coats, scarves and hats. Add hooks near your front door or even pick up a coat rack to store all of these items with ease.
