Update Your Decor For The Fall

Blog by Joette Fielding | September 10th, 2014

Fall Home Decor UpdatesWith the light and breezy days of summer behind us and the cooler weather quickly approaching, now is the time to give your home’s interior and exterior a seasonal update.

Replace your outdoor summer flowers with seasonal mums and kale in garden or planters.  Sweep off the porch and deck and replace your outdoor mats with ones more suitable for the fall and winter.  Clean off your mailbox, house numbers and replace any burned out light bulbs in your exterior light fixtures.

Don’t forget to put a big mat in your foyer that will stand up to rain, mud and the eventual salt and snow that will inevitably be tracked indoors!

Replace the sisal area rug in your family room with one that has a thicker pile to help keep your toes warm and cozy over the cold winter months.

Update your fabrics - add heavier drapes on the windows in rich earth tone colours in lieu of the light linen ones more suited to the summer.  Replace pillows and throw cushions with ones dressed in warmer fabrics.  Add a couple of throw blankets in the living room/family room – perfect for snuggling up when the weather turns cold!

Store away the patio glasses and bring out the sturdy mugs and your favourite teapot or hot chocolate mix.

Switch from your light weight duvet and cover to a warmer duvet in deep, rich tones.

Just a few seasonal changes in your décor will transform your home into a cozy haven for the colder days and nights ahead.
