Fall is a time of change. The leaves start to change colors, temperatures drop, and we get excited about the holidays. It is also the time when we want to make changes in our homes. Here are some tips for creating your own fall look at home.
Add layers of texture with textiles… to create a cozy atmosphere
Fall is the changing colors of the leaves, the smell of pumpkin spice, it is the time to cuddle under a blanket with someone special, drink aromatic tea or enjoy a cup of hot coffee or chocolate. There are many things you can do to create a cozy atmosphere in your home without much cost.
First, pull out the blankets and extra bedspreads! The weather is getting colder, so you will want to spend your fall evenings under a warm wool or microfiber blanket. Place one or two on the sofa in the large room, and remember about the extra one in the bedroom. It is worth mixing blanket textures and using richer colors - for example in shades of red, orange or brown.
Use natural materials such as wood, wicker and dried colored leaves
The fall colors are warm, which makes them pleasant to look at and brings that warmth into the home as well. Therefore, it is worth using such colors to decorate the space and create a cozy atmosphere in it.
Decorate the terrace with branches, pumpkins or a bouquet of dried flowers and fallen leaves. Such fall decorations will surely attract the attention of guests. The composition can also be beautifully placed on the table! Yellow and orange accessories will create a unique atmosphere on cold evenings. Where to put blankets and extra pillows? In a wicker basket or in boxes made of raw wood. It is very important to take a closer look at nature, which provides us with many ideas for fall accents.
Add fall vibes and pop color with pillows and pictures
For fall time, it is worth buying additional pillowcases. And they don't have to match in terms of texture. Go big and put fleece, cotton and even leather pillows on the couch! Or maybe you will be interested in rust-colored leaf-shaped pillows or incredibly orange pumpkin-shaped pillowcases? There are so many options! Choose those that will perfectly fit into your fall arrangement, just remember not to overdo it with such accessories!
What to hang on the walls? Of course, you can try to create your own fall accent, for example a decorative wreath with rowan, garlands of cones or mobiles of dried leaves. But if we do not have time for it, it is worth buying canvas wall paintings depicting beautiful fall, mountain landscapes or a fireplace and burned wood.
Bring more light on fall evenings with lamps, candles or colored light bulbs
Fall evenings get darker much faster, so lighting candles is another great way to create a cozy atmosphere in your living room or bedroom. Go for aromas that smell like pumpkin or baked apple, or simply mix fragrances that immediately evoke the fall atmosphere in you. If you don't like candles, use essential oils.
There are many options on the market for additional lighting that will add an fall atmosphere to our interiors. Think of lamps by the sofa, lanterns on the coffee table, or colored light bulbs above the headboard of the bed. Let their light be more subtle and warmer, in this way your fall decorations will enrich the entire interior.
Creating a fall atmosphere at home can be very simple. Collect decorations that nature itself provides to refresh spaces, fill the house with candlelight, plan family evenings with a good movie or an interesting book, and finally add soft fabrics for the colder evening seasons.
