5 WAYS TO PREP YOUR HOME FOR FALL //
We have always found fall as a great excuse to reset, and not just as designers. The changing leaves remind us to pull our heads out of our phones, admire nature, and breathe deeply before the craziness of the holidays set in... It's this time of the year, autumn, to start prepping your house for the colder season. Fall brings that craving to spend more time at home. So, whether your space requires a full-on makeover or merely an update, read on to see the 5 top fall interior design tips that will give your house a new, cozy vibe for the fall.
Cozy Bedding //
We are big fans of swapping things seasonally for both functionality and aesthetic purposes. Start with adding heavier bedding in a darker color to get in the fall mood and darken the space a little. We love the Organic Stonewashed Belgian Flax Linen collection by RH in Graphite! Also, don't forget the throws… you can add one or even two blankets to create layers, placing one at the foot of the bed. Throws are super practical …you can snuggle up with them to read, watch TV, take a nap, and fulfill all of your cozy, autumnal dreams!
Matte Black //
Black is back! Better yet, in an elegant matte finish that feels more understated than a glossy finish and pairs with all kinds of styles. From décor pieces to furniture and light fixtures, matte black has an immense amount of power. This power can give immediate character to any space while blending with any other color you may already have at home. And if you prefer timeless designs, a black and white palette will be the perfect choice for you!
Add a Statement Light fixture //
Make the gathering spaces in your home central with a statement light. Ideal for large living rooms and dining rooms, chandeliers can add a touch of class and elegance to any indoor space. From traditional, elaborate designs to ultramodern and minimalistic or experimental designs, your options are endless when it comes to choosing a chandelier.
Natural Materials //
To give your home that extra variation and visual intensity, we recommend layering in some natural materials. They're the secret ingredient; Raw materials add beautiful texture to your space. As we see it, every single room in your house needs to create a vibrant space that doesn't fall flat. It's a timeless look that you can cooperate in so many ways: woven pendant lights, woven baskets, wood and iron dining tables, and LOTS of plants.
Finish with Cozy Accents //
Gray skies and cooler weather means we look to our interiors for added texture and warmth. Complete your space with beautifully crafted blankets and pillows. Throw blankets bring plenty of warmth and texture. Start from the ground up and layer rugs to add warmth and style. Layering rugs sets a solid foundation in rooms, which adds depth, long-lasting texture, and padding for the feet. Pull in some poufs! These timeless, versatile pieces are must-haves in any home. Not only do poufs make for extra comfortable seating, footrests, and even makeshift side tables to be used in any room in your home, they're also endlessly chic and durable. These details that may seem minute are a crucial design element for a comfortable home.
As fall begins to roll in, take a moment to breathe in the cooler air. Snuggle up with a throw and some pumpkin-spice flavored what-not, and enjoy your new space created with these beautiful tips we've given you today! Happy fall!
