5 Ways to Make Your Home Feel Like Fall

Although the temps still feel like summer, fall is around the corner. We love bringing seasonal elements into our space to reflect the environment around us. This year, we’re all about cozying up with layers, textures, and accents that create a felling of comfort. Weather you’re looking to add new elements to a specific space or refresh your styling to create the feeling of the season, here are a few simple things you can do to make your home feel like fall: 

No. 1: Add Cozy Textural Elements

Pillows and throws can go a long way in completely transforming the feeling of a room. In the fall, we love trading out lighter-weight fabrics with heavier, textural materials to add a sense of warmth.  Add a throw to the end of your bedding look in the bedroom, switch out a few pillows on your sofa, or drape an extra throw on an accent chair to up the coziness.  

No. 2: Bring Outdoor Seasonal Elements Inside

Incorporating the color palettes each season brings into your styling is a great way to make your home feel refreshed throughout the year. In autumn, look to the deep, warm hues of the leaves as inspiration.  While you don’t need to re-haul all of your built-in decor or re-style the whole great room to make your home feel like fall, incorporating a few pieces can make all the difference. Add artwork that reflects autumnal moments or refreshed, seasonal greenery. 

No. 3: Add Ambiance with Candles and Lighting

Lighting can make or break the feeling of a space, and as we approach cooler, darker months, good lighting and ambiance is even more important. Consider adding levels to your lighting layers with sconces, floor lamps, or table lamps.

No. 4: Rethink the Function of Your Space

With a new season often comes new routines. It’s the perfect time to re-think the function of your space.  Add beautiful and functional storage solutions like baskets for backpacks and shoes in the mudroom and boxes and trays in the entryway for dropping your keys on the way out the door.    

No. 1: Create a New Tonal Palette with Decor

We love adding decor materials that resemble what we see outside with every season, and in the fall, it’s all about incorporating natural materials with deep textural elements. Incorporate decor pieces in wood, brass, or woven materials to bring warmth to any vignette.
