With autumn just around the corner, it’s time to prepare your home for the new season.
Rich, warm hues and the coziest textiles are just some of the items you’ll be yearning for this fall.
Read our list below to ensure your home is autumn-ready.
Change your Palette
Step into the fall mindset by first changing your home’s color palette, whether it’s in small accessories or textiles. Even if the summer sun continues to go strong through mid-November, it can still feel like fall in your home if you’re surrounded by rich hues of burgundy and mustard.
For further depth, add in a festive plaid or exotic animal print in a pillowcase or blanket.
While faux fur throws may have to wait for now, there is still an opportunity to layer in the early North Texas autumn.
Exchange more summery pillows for darker velvet accents.
Add linen blankets in dark grays or forest greens while it’s still warm. When the weather gets more chilly, create more texture in your home by layering cashmere and faux fur throws.
Create a Spark
Fall is the ultimate time to light a candle. Not only do they create the perfect cozy ambience, candles can evoke the season quickly through scent.
Light candles with muskier scents, such as a classic pumpkin spice or woody scent, to get you in the mood for cooler weather.
Play with Food
For the easiest transition into fall decor, display seasonal fruits.
Not only do fresh fruits bring life and vibrancy into the home, they add Mother Nature’s favorite seasonal colors.
Showcase crisp apples and pears in an earthenware bowl or wicker basket, then, when you’re ready, incorporate them into a delicious apple pie.
