With its crisp air and waning daylight urging us to spend more time indoors, fall is a good time to tend to our nests. Here are some design and décor ideas to warm up your homes and prepare for the festive season ahead. Bring the Outside In From dry pinecones, tree branches and natural grasses to miniature pumpkins, gourds and other emblems of the harvest, autumn offers an abundance of natural materials and earthy colors to decorate your home for the season. On your next walk in the park or trip to the farmer’s market, gather some of these items to put in a vase or arrange for a seasonal centerpiece. Throws Within Reach With sweater weather on the way, you can quickly cozy up your space with strategically placed blankets, faux furs and other throws. Draping a warm, soft-textured fabric over the recliner or sofa will ensure you always have another layer handy when it gets chilly. Velvet Elegance From cushions and duvets for accent to fully upholstered furniture, velvet can add a touch of luster and regal elegance to your home. Whether it’s a traditional pile or an iridescent crushed velvet, think cinnamon, ochre and other autumnal tones to spice up your space. Spark the Light Bring some soft light and fall fragrance inside your home with an assortment of tapers, pillars and other candles and indoor lanterns. For a flame-free option, a string of micro-lights or battery-powered votives can add some drama to your bedroom or dining tablescape. Looking for a new home to nest in? Contact me today.
