September signals the reluctant end of summer and the beginning of crisp, cool mornings complete with breathtaking Alberta fall landscapes. While we may start stocking up on sweaters and layering up to keep warm, it’s easy to forget we can create that same warmth and coziness for our home’s interior. Here’s how to transition your décor from summer to fall:
Create Cozy Layers
Adding some soft blankets and some knit throw pillows will help to create a cozy nook just begging to be curled up in, which is perfect for reading a book with tea in hand. Swap out summer fabrics for richer, heavier feeling ones, such as flannel or wool. Adding darker, richer colours will help transition from summer to a more fall feeling room.
Add Earthy Elements
Summer encourages time spent outside, while Fall is all about snuggling up inside. Bringing earthy elements into your home décor with warm colours, rustic woods and metals, that all mimic the stunning natural landscapes we are lucky enough to enjoy for a few short weeks. Fall is a great time to make some home decor inspired by the outdoors, such as collecting pine cones and leaves for wreaths.
Elevate your Senses
Nothing screams fall more than a fresh-baked apple pie right out of the kitchen. Luckily, you don’t have to bake all day to make your home smell like you did! Strategically placing scented candles and oil diffusers around the home in fall scents, such as apple pie, pumpkin & cedarwood will encourage that warm and fuzzy feeling we get with the cooler weather.
If you don’t have a fireplace in your home, which is the ultimate fall treat, consider installing dimmer switches. By placing dimmer switches in the common areas in the home such as the dining room or rec room it will add a warm and cozy glow. Perfect for early fall evenings!
When it comes to fall decorating there are many different ways to spice up your home and get your senses flowing for the season.
