Bringing Fall to Your Home
It's that time of year, again. I'm starting to crave warmth in all things—warm soups, warm drinks, warm sweaters, but especially warm decor. When we think of autumn decor, images of pumpkin-lined table spreads and autumn-leaf arrangements float through our heads like a Norman Rockwell painting. However, when we allow our decor to get too theme-based, it often feels overdone and we can tire easily and quickly of these accents that we spent a lot of time and money collecting.
Today on the blog, we want to talk about ways to add those warm autumn vibes to your living spaces in a way that doesn't feel cliché or too "theme-y". Let’s start by listing our three favorite things about the season; then, we will find ways to incorporate them.
1.) We love the warm autumn colors that Mother Nature provides. Think of orange, red, and yellow leaves covering the side of a snow-capped mountain.
2.) We love layering our clothing, especially leather booties and classic patterns—like plaid, stripes, and houndstooth.
3.) We love seeing textures like wool and knitted hats, scarves, and mittens.
Now, let’s bring all of those things we love so much inside our home. We subscribe to the notion that less is more. So, note that the ideas we share will nod to the season, but won’t make you feel like you live in a pumpkin patch.
We look for throw blankets that bring fall patterns and colors into a space, and we look for materials—such as linen and wool—to use in throws and pillows.
Finding pieces that bring warm tones into a space—while still complementing the existing furniture—is a great way to make a room feel a little bit cozier.
We also love to add layers—rugs, pillows, throws, lighting, foliage, and textured vases and bowls.
