As autumn arrives, bringing crisp air and shorter days, we turn our attention to cozy, welcoming spaces, and prepare to spend more time indoors. There are myriad ways to enhance your interiors with fall-inspired decor, from layering in texture and color to bringing nature indoors. Ahead, I share my favorite ways to create rooms worth lingering in.
You can make a few small updates or completely redecorate. Whether you find yourself in the city or the country, you can create décor that has a sense of place. One of the quickest updates? Incorporate texture and color with accessories. Drape a textured throw over the arm of a chair or along the back of a sofa. Remove summery linen slipcovers, and layer in rich hues of oranges and reds that can be incorporated through a rug, throw pillows, or bespoke pleated fabric lampshades. Let’s not forget about well-placed lighting to completely transform the ambiance of a room. For a personal touch, I like to include coffee table books on topics our clients are passionate about.
Looking forward to sitting by a roaring fire? Orient chairs around the fireplace, perfectly situated for backgammon. Put the focus on the mantel, and try using pretty glass hurricanes when the fireplace isn’t in use. And nothing beats the aromatic scent.
A fall refresh will prepare your home for entertaining, and welcoming family and friends in style.
