The leaves are beginning to change, temperatures are dropping, and the summer days are starting to dwindle. With summer coming to a close, it's time to start transitioning your home in preparation for fall. Here are a few tips to spice up your apartment this season!
Switch Up Your Color Schemes
While summer colors are bright and fun, fall colors are warm, earthy and cozy. Shades of brown, orange, burgundy and gold are perfect to add to your seasonal décor. There's plenty of little changes you can make around your apartment to incorporate these autumnal colors and make a statement. For a fall feel, try swapping out your tea towels and area rugs. If you regularly buy fresh flowers, look for bouquets that include these fall colors.
Fall For Autumn Scents
From crisp apple cinnamon to warm pumpkin pie, the scents of fall embody the season. Candles are an inexpensive way to help transition your apartment into the new season. Warm vanilla, apple and pumpkin scents perfectly complement the colder fall temperatures. If experimenting with recipes is your thing, try making a homemade warm apple cider. Not only will it taste delicious, but it's the perfect pairing for curling up on the couch with a good book and cozy blanket.
Besides adding an element of comfort and luxury, changing up your pillows and blankets is an easy way to transition your home décor from summer to fall. Drape your sofa with a textured throw in a warm velvet or knit. Then, create a pile of cushiony fall colored pillows on top. It's also the perfect time to switch over to thicker bedding like a duvet or flannel sheets.
With summer winding down, it's time to transition your décor to match the new season. You don't have to break the bank to create a cozy atmosphere, and these subtle changes will make it easier to shift your decor when the seasons change once again.
