10 Ways To Cozy Up Your Home For Fall
The days are getting shorter, the kids have gone back to school, and there is a slight chill in the evening air. All signs of early Fall. Soon the landscape will be painted with broad strokes of Autumn color and before you know it we will start spending more time indoors as fall ushers in the cooler winter air.
This is a great time to start to cozy up your home. Here are a few tips to make your home a little more warm and welcoming:
Add a mix of textures.
• Change out the throw pillows by adding tactile soft textured pillows to your sofa or bed.
• Change out or layer area rugs. By adding area rugs you are able to soften up the look of your rooms. This also provides an additional layer of warmth on those cold evenings. Choose textured rich colored rugs to define and warm up the space.
• Change out your bedding. Add flannel or fleece sheets for extra warmth. Add a big fluffy down (or down alternative) comforter. This is a great time to upgrade or replace your bed pillows.
• Add a few cozy throw blankets to the living room or any area in your home where you might use them.
