Simple Ways to Refresh Your Home for Fall

As the leaves start to change and the air gets crisper, it’s time to bid farewell to summer and welcome fall, the season for cozy sweaters, warm cider, and pumpkin everything. The transition to this cozy season is a great time to refresh your home – but it doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of time or money. By focusing on a few key areas, you can refresh your home for the fall season without breaking the bank or getting overwhelmed.

Update throw pillows and blankets

While you can’t change your sofa or bed each season, swapping out your current throw blankets and pillows is a more practical way to create a new look. Choose pillows and blankets that are rich in seasonal tones and textures. They will make any space instantly feel cozier.

Introduce seasonal natural elements

When you think about fall, what natural elements come to mind? Fill your home with autumnal foliage like pumpkins or gourds, eucalyptus branches, birch branches or logs, or even cotton boll bouquets. Other great fall florals include mums, pansies, and orange roses.

Update your bedding

Once the weather begins to cool, it’ll be time to swap out your bedding. It’s all about light and airy during the summer, but that won’t fly during the colder months. Strip your bed of thinner summer bedding in favor of thicker textiles like flannel and heavy comforters to make sure you stay warm and cozy as you drift off to sleep.

Warm up with candles

Fill your home with candles and lanterns to add to the ambiance when it gets dark. Even if you don’t light them, candles provide a romantic and relaxing vibe. You can even embrace the fall season by buying scented candles.
