Fall is just around the corner and its time to begin getting your home ready for the cooler weather. Get a jump-start on preparing your home and plan ahead. Here are a few easy ways to get started.
Start incorporating fall colours into your décor. Toss colours like brown, red, orange and gold through out your home to create a cozy atmosphere. Replace your pillow covers and look for new decorative accessories such as throw cushions for your sofa as well as to toss on your bed. You can create seasonal vignettes to display with items like leaves, pinecones and cinnamon.
Replace your tableware with new dishes, placemats and table runners that will look inviting, cozy and ideal for serving up your hearty soups!
In the bedroom, look to update your drapes with heavier fabrics to block out that chilly night air. Look for a new plush, thick duvet and add a cover on it with a beautiful cozy fall pattern. Also, adding a faux fur throw blanket across your bed is a great simple way to instantly warm up your space.
Get organized. The cooler weather brings with it more layers, heavy jackets, boots and scarves. You want to keep your front entry as neat as possible. All of these extra items need a place to go and a bench by the entry with storage underneath for shoes and boots is a great way to utilize a space to its fullest. Put stylish coat hooks above the bench as well for those addition layers like scarves and hats!
