Falling for Stunning Interiors: Cozy up Your Space for Fall
I'm pretty sure it was literally last month that we wrote about making a few easy changes for spring. Now, it's already time to be thinking about getting ready for the cozy fall. If you're like me, the busy, hectic summer welcomes change (once again), and since life is crazy (seriously still?!) then any decor changes should be easy to enhance lifestyle.
#1 Swap Out Color & Fabrics
The obvious choice is to swap out color and a few fabrics. Even though we are anticipating changing leaves outside, inside green is still the hue of choice for fall; it's the perfect hue for cooler weather. However, to our surprise, dynamic red is making a comeback. Mixed with butter rum, golden lime, shaded spruce, and autumn maple it creates a stunning look. Pairing a couple of these these hues with navy (our favorite that seems to last all season) will bring the fall vibe right into your home.
This camel colored chair in a North Salt Lake design room redo is the perfect color for fall. While brass looks great with cooler grays and Carrera Marble, brass accents also work perfectly in fall mixed with the warmer tones.
We love this combination of autumn colors and texture by Marie Flannigan Interiors. The dusty blue and neutral scheme feels cozy -- perfect for cooler temps.
#2 Add a Layer
Pull the throws out of the closet (or find some new favorites) and drop them for easy access. Add a few baskets to store them, and your room will instantly transition to fall. Add candles, too; the soft glow on those dark evenings adds a nice atmosphere to any living or bedroom space.
The cute, buffalo-check throw in this family space we designed in Fruit Heights is a layer that adds visual appeal. The candle is simple, yet in fall makes the space feel more comfortable.
While the throw in this Kaysville new build can be used year round, it's handy to have on hand in the fall and creates a nice contrast to the light upholstery.
Marie Flannigan knows how to pull of a warmer fall-fresh look (yes- we are showcasing her work a lot here! She's amazing). Here her bedroom design features a fur throw that, while it spring-worthy, it is also perfect for this time of year.
#3 Add fall greens.
Be careful. We aren't talking about a typical pumpkin spread on the table. Switch out those springtime tulips for some softer greens and floral.
We love this Lambs Ear "permanent botanical" we added to this Park City vacation home. It's makes the perfect fall combo.
She did it again! Marie Flannigan Design created this warm space that still feels fresh. Perfectly displaying fall without a scarecrow theme. Plus, we love the coffee table succulent for fall (also in the image below designed by her team). We couldn't love the texture combo any more!
Warm textiles alongside the glow of a reading lamp mixed with a textured container filled with stunning hydrangeas, topped off with a candle make this the perfect, cozy corner created by again, Marie Flannigan. Impressive.
#4 Switch up Texture
While we love marble, acrylic and glass with splashes of white everywhere else, fall is the perfect time to add a bit of comfortable textures. Leathers in various shades, natural wood, clay, woven accents, concrete and slightly worn metals are perfect for fall. Don't forget about velvet; it is the perfect pillow texture to warm up any space. Just a few touches as accents will make your home feel more welcoming for the cooler, brisk air.
Late-year ski trips will be enjoyed in this Park City home boasting comfortable materials of leather, brass, cement (yes, that giant lamp has a cement base- how cool is that?!) and iron. Paired with the warm tones of the rug, the room feels fresh but is still prepared to warm up frozen skiers.
We are still loving the texture of these lamps we used in our Alpine Parade Home. Even though they are technically white, their great scale and texture will warm up any space.
When adjusting for seasons, the point is to keep it simple. Make a couple of easy changes and get ready for an enjoyable season to come.
