How to Switch up your Decor for Fall/Winter Inspired Looks
If you find yourself trying to be fully immersed in all things cold weather but are experiencing a disconnect when it comes to your home decor, don’t fret! We’re here to help. Below are some pointers for transforming your favorite rooms into a cozy oasis for the fall and winter months.
Start with your pillows and throws. The easiest swap you can make is covering your cotton throw pillows with homemade flannel pillowcases or decorative pillows bought at a home goods retailer. Although they may seem insignificant, pillows are actually the pieces that make your furniture stand out. Additionally, swap out lightweight throw blankets for cozier ones. Try a soft flannel throw or a heavier style knitted one for a textured look.
Another great tip is to incorporate lots of candles into your space. There is truly nothing better than unwinding at the end of a long day with soft blankets and the flicker of a candle illuminating the room. A really easy way to incorporate candlelight into your space is to grab a decorative tray for your coffee table and fill it with candles of varying heights and shapes. You can also buy a strand of battery operate mini lights on wire to add into the mix for a little extra sparkle.
You can also incorporate some kitschy-style items as well! Bring out your favorite ceramic pumpkins and fall decor. These items can stay out from September through Thanksgiving. For winter decor that can stay up past Christmas/Hanukkah, go for “snow” inspired pieces. This means going with a white or blue theme that will fit perfectly with your newly swapped out throw pillows.
As you can see, it’s very easy to tweak a room to change its entire vibe for the seasons. The key to doing so is not stressing over it! You can really build as you go and incorporate pieces that you find along the way. There’s no need for changing paint color or rearranging furniture (unless that’s your jam, then more power to ya!)
As long as you have good foundational pieces such as a couch, accent chair, statement lamps, and coffee table, you can basically create anything you can think of. Follow your intuition (and our tips!) to make the easy transition from the warmer months into the cooler ones!
Stay warm out there, friends!
