"If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour" - Victoria Erickson.
Autumn is a beautiful season. The warm and vibrant colors wipe out the green, the landscape becomes richer and the food seems much tastier. Not only giving magic to the nature outdoors, autumn can also give magic to your home. Incorporate this season into your interior design, especially in your everyday living spaces. Here are some inspirational tips we can share, to get your home in the autumn mood.
Let Autumn Colors Play
It is easy to think of autumn colors: reds, oranges, yellows and browns. You can start by using these colours in your textile choices, like pillow cases, blankets, or bed linens. Small decorations in these colours immediately move your home from summer to fall. If you have more time and a larger scale project in mind, consider repainting your walls, changing your curtains, or switching your furniture.
Add Some Nature to Your Decor
Autumn is about the fallen leaves, pine cones, chestnuts and pumpkins. When it comes to decoration, adding some of these natural symbols of the season, will freshen up your home.
Arrange some dried flowers, berry branches, or greenery into your favorite vase to create a centerpiece for your entryway or dining room table.
Pumpkins are also a fantastic and easy decor piece (that can also be used in the kitchen). Place pumpkins of varying size in your front window or on your porch, to create a colourful and fun display.
Sink into a Super Comfy Sofa
When we think of Autumn, we think of cooler temperatures and longer evenings. In other words, the perfect recipe for snuggling up on a comfy sofa with your loved ones.
Picture yourself melting into your sofa, with pillows and blankets. What an amazing way to enjoy an afternoon while watching your favorite TV series or movie!
In terms of decor, it is easy to add elements of autumn into your sofa's presentation. Think accent pillows or blankets, in warm colours, plaids or even knits!
Warm it up with Candles
The evening comes fast in Autumn, we tend to loose our outdoor light early. To combat this, let there be more lights in your home ... especially candlelight!
Candles can bring coziness and warmth into your space, especially those with comforting scents. Adding candles in fall scents like apple, pumpkin, sandalwood, vanilla and cinnamon will make your home instantly feel like autumn!
Cozy Up with Rugs
Rugs are the most essential decoration to instantly make your home so cozy. Invest in some rugs and carpets for seasonal decoration. Choose thinker ones to boost the coziness level in your home. As an added benefit, rugs can also keep the floors and your feet warm during this cooler season!
It's Time for Hygge
Hygge is all about creating warmth in your home and in your heart.
Autumn represents the enjoyment of the darker evenings. The refreshing feeling of the cool crisp mornings. As Hygge is a feeling of coziness that we love so much, Autumn is the perfect time to be Hygge.
Taking a walk outside, starting your DIY projects, spending more me-time and baking are some examples of Hygge activities you can do this Autumn. For more inspiration, read our post about Make[ing] Your Autumn as Hygge as Possible.
