Cooler temperatures and shorter days, sure signs that Autumn has arrived. And as our leisure time activities move indoors, it’s time to think about cozying up our living spaces making them more welcoming for the cooler winter weather ahead. Fall decorating often centers on the front of our homes, from doorsteps full of pumpkins and mums, to an array of goblins, ghosts, and other ghoulish themes in our front yards. Below are some of our favorite fall decorating ideas and ways to welcome in the season.
Scents are an easy way to create an instantly cozy feeling in your home. Scented candles fill a room with intoxicating aromas and give off extra warmth with their soft flickering light. For a fresh scent that will make your home smell like Williams-Sonoma try their classic recipe. Simmer a pot of boiling water and add 2 lemons (sliced), a tablespoon of vanilla extract, and 2 sprigs of rosemary for hours of enjoyment.
Blankets, you can never have too many. Having fleece or knitted blankets layered on your couch or rolled up in a basket near a comfy chair will add a warm luxurious feeling to your home. By mixing colors and textures you can easily add a taste of autumn no matter the color scheme.
Pumpkins and fall florals are obvious choices for autumn decorating, place some heirloom pumpkins as your table center pieces or on your mantle. Fresh florals will liven up your space and display warm fall colors. You can even add a plaid table runner for depth of layers and fabric that feels warm.
So break out the hot apple cider, put on your favorite sweater, snuggle up with your warmest blanket and read a good book or enjoy the family game night. Be sure to view our home plans to see which makes you feel the coziest.
