Does the changing season have you itching to get things done? While the end of summer does bring the dread of shorter days, it also brings the promise of pumpkin spice and cinnamon candles. It brings with it the thought of wrapping yourself up in the coziest blankets and indulging yourself in a favorite book.
If you plan to spend this new season at home, you may be looking for ways to give your spaces a new look too. After all, if the seasons are changing, why shouldn’t your decor? In this post, we will share with you a few fall home decor ideas that will refresh your rooms and you.
A few design accents have the capability to subtly, yet impactfully, elevate spaces. Lampshades are one such accent. As the days get shorter, you’ll find yourself turning on the lights in your house sooner. Why not give your home a warm glow?
Silk lampshades are a beautiful addition to your home. This versatile fabric will look great anywhere, especially in the living room or bedroom. Not only will you light up your space in the evenings, but even when the lamps are off during the day, the look of silk will add beauty to your room. If you have a home with traditional fixtures, consider giving them a new look with chandelier shades. Available in many different fabrics and styles, you can find one that matches your aesthetic.
Imagine sitting wrapped in your favorite chair, your room beautifully lit with lampshades, a lovely fragrance rising in the air. Candles are one of the best additions you can make to give your home a beautiful ambiance. Select from a plethora of fragrance choices to transport yourself to a distant land without leaving home.
One of the best things about candles is how easy they are to buy, store, and use. If you are having friends over, you can light them to give an immediate air of intimacy to your space. Or, you can choose to light them up just for yourself.
In recent years, there has been a lot of conversation about purchasing responsibly-made candles. Avoid buying paraffin wax candles that release toxins in the air. You don’t want your relaxation time to turn into something dangerous. Look for candles that use rapeseed wax, beeswax, coconut wax, or soy wax.
Pillows and Throws
Since this season is all about getting cozy, we encourage you to consider softening your space with pillows and throws. Look for different types of textures and colors that can go together, yet create visual interest.
We wish we could say there is no such thing as too many pillows and throws, but there definitely is! So keep that in mind when you are shopping. By their nature, these home accents are big and fluffy and while fall is a time for big and fluffy, it is important to keep your home looking airy and bright too.
Look for colors that are inspired by fall and textures that feel good on your skin.
Few things say luxury like rugs! We aren’t talking about faux sheepskin rugs that are in fashion. Those look great too, but if you want to keep your home looking fresh and well-lit, consider going for rugs that have beautiful patterns and may be inspired by cultures around the world.
Not only will these add beauty to your space, but they will also look classy. You can choose to swap the rugs in between rooms too to give your spaces a refresh.
Fall Decor for Cozy Homes
You don’t have to spend too much money or time to cozy up your home for this new season. Good lighting, fresh, airy decor, and a good balance of color are all it will take to welcome fall into your home.
