5 Quick, Fall, Farmhouse Decorating Tips
Fall Decorating Tips for Your Home
There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.
This is the time of year that we get a little bit more relaxed and a lot more casual. That's true for both dress and home! The cooler weather coaxes us to bring out our chunky sweaters, cute boots, warm socks and settle in with a steaming mug of hot cocoa. In the home, candle scents and accent colors become warmer and spicier, reflecting the season, and pears and apples fill bowls and trays, tempting the senses.
Here are five tips to create a comfortable, fall home that is welcoming to all:
|1. Bring in items from the outdoors. A grouping of gourds, colored leaves, a bowl of acorns or a cotton bunch, all of these will add character, texture and interest to your rooms.||
2. Use warmer colors in your textiles and pillows. We tend to gravitate toward classic orange colors this time of year, (pumpkins anyone?), but you can go softer with pale blues, soft grays and creams.
3. Bring out the texture! Pull out your thicker throws, pillows and bedding. While the cooler air dictates these measures, their presence in your rooms will contribute to the fall ambiance adding comfort, texture and warmth.
4. Use warmer scents in your essential oil diffusers or burn spicier scented candles. Scents like apple cinnamon, warm vanilla, patchouli and pumpkin spice bring a richness to the air in your home. Effusing your home in these types of scents will add a nice, autumnal backdrop to everything you do.
5. Use white. Don't be afraid of the color white this time of year. It is clean and adds a softness to all the warm colors that are being introduced. You can use white or cream in your pillows, throws, bedding and chippy white decor. It will add a richness to your fall decorating style.
I hope this inspires you to create a warm, comfortable and nurturing fall home for you and your loved ones! Comment below with some of the ways that you prepare your home for fall!
