Cooler temperatures and glimpses of the holidays in clothing stores and shopping malls create a fall atmosphere that we like to welcome into our homes. Really, anytime there is a change in the weather is a great time to redecorate your home. Here are a few ideas to help you usher in the holidays and prepare your home for winter entertaining and cozy nights by the fire.
Stock Your Home With Fall Necessities
With cooler temperatures, you need to pack your cupboards with warm weather favorites like hot chocolate and warm soups. Don’t forget to pick up some extra wine and party snacks too. Maybe a pie for the freezer just incase unexpected guests pop in. Make sure you have enough firewood and logs to keep you warm this season. Extra blankets in the car, for you and your friends when you need them, are always a pleasant gesture.
Bring Out The Pillows and Blankets
Decorate you living room or family room with comfortable pillows in warm autumn colors. Be sure and include some interesting textures to create a warm look and ambiance. Sheep fur throws and soft furry blankets allow you to wrap up in warmth for immediate comfort and relaxation. Consider turning a part of your home into a reading area where you can sit in a comfortable chair and enjoy a good book or game on you smart phone. My recliner is set up next to my picture window so I can enjoy the beauty of winter from the warmth of my favorite chair.
Create A Fall Atmosphere With Warm Winter Bedding
Now that the temperatures are dipping down, you can include your warmer blankets on your bed. New bedding might just be the inspiration for a bedroom makeover. Maybe you’re not ready for new furniture but a new bedroom ensemble with new window treatments or custom drapery may be exactly what you need. You can save on your heating bill with energy efficient window treatments and extra blankets that allow you to turn the thermostat down.
Add Fall Cheer With Autumn Favorites
You can add a little fall fun to your decorating with colorful gourds and pumpkins, leaves, pinecones and small ornaments that remind you of fall. You can create a charming table with a few gourds down the center and a table runner of your favorite colors underneath.
Don’t forget to add a few fragrant pieces like cloves or cinnamon to create a fall atmosphere.
Add New Window Treatments
Whether you like to change your window treatments for the seasons or you’re just ready for a new look, new window treatments can add new life to your rooms and provide you with a warm feel that is elegant and tasteful. To create a fall look, you can replace your summer sheers with fuller material. Custom drapery that billows to the floor makes a nice fall statement. Wood shutters can also have a warm effect in the right situation.
