Warm Up!

Fall is here and I am sooo happy! I love making (and eating!) all the comfort foods one associates with fall such as stew, roasts, apple pie, etc. And of course partaking in fall activities such as pumpkin carving, raking leaves and hot cocoa by the camp fire!


Now that autumn is upon us, it is now time to update our decor from the cool, light fabrics of spring/ summer, and infuse our homes with warmth, great texture, and fall color.


Here's a few easy and inexpensive tips to help you welcome fall in your home:

1. Bring out the heavier weighted fabrics. Add a warm throw in cable knit or plaid to a favorite chair in the living room, or change your bedding to a heavier fabric such as flannel- and add that duvet or comforter!

2. Add rustic, nature inspired touches such as pine cones, leaves, branches and cinnamon sticks to your decor and tablescapes. And of course light those wonderful scented candles we all have and enjoy so much!

3. add rich colors of fall to your home either by painting a room or piece of furniture. You can also incorporate fall colors in simple inexpensive ways such as changing towels in your bathroom to a cranberry, mustard, or pine color.

4. Fall cleaning. I know- it just seems like yesterday when we did the spring cleaning thing but nothing really makes me welcome fall more than a clean, fresh home.

How do you welcome fall? Let me know!
