How to Complete a Fall Refresh in Your Home

As we say goodbye to the sunshine of summer and hello to a cooler season, many of us are craving seasonal change in our homes. Whether it’s the cool, crisp weather, the gorgeous colors of the leaves changing, or the excitement of the holidays and gathering with friends and family, it’s a season of change and the perfect time for a fall refresh.

With the holidays just around the corner, you know you’ll be having guests come and go. Swap out the decor in your entryway for something with a warm feeling. Add some warm fall colors with new florals, candles, and, of course, pumpkin decor.

The Living Room: Time to Relax

At the end of the day, the living room is where the family comes to relax. Transition your living room from summer to fall by adding layers. Use throws as part of your decor by tossing them across the back of your couch or chair so they’ll be easy to grab on those cold nights. Add a comfortable floor pillow to cozy up near the fire.

Any time guests are in your home, the kitchen is the primary gathering place. Bring fall into your kitchen with more than just the aroma of what’s in the oven. Proudly display your fall dishware as part of your decor; add warm-colored materials, such as wood tones and cooper to bring it all together.

The Backyard: Get Cozy

Just because the weather is getting cooler, doesn’t mean the outdoor activities have to end. Keeping your backyard in action well through the fall calls for comfy blankets and throw pillows. Keep them in a basket near the back door so they are easily accessible as you head outdoors to enjoy a night around the fire.
