Making Your Home Ready for Fall

Create a cozy and inviting home this fall.
With the falling leaves and cooler weather come holiday parties and family gatherings. That means that a lot of people are going to be seeing your home soon, and you can’t hide behind your nice deck or spacious backyard. Now is the perfect time to devote some of your attention to sprucing up your interior for the fall season. You want a home that screams cozy and inviting, and you can create that enviable ambiance by following these four simple tips.

 Bring On the Slipcovers
Slipcovers are a great way to kill two birds with one stone: You can change up your color scheme to be more fall appropriate and you can protect your expensive furniture from getting ruined by your rambunctious family. It is very easy to find generic slipcovers that can fit over most dining room chairs and living room upholstery items. Look for neutral colors so that they are easier to coordinate with, and aim for thicker fabrics, like velvet or canvas, to help with your warm and welcoming ambiance.

Change out the Pillows
One of the fastest and easiest ways to make your home ready for the fall season is by bringing the colors of fall into your home. Look for some burnt orange or deep red accent pillows to put on your sofa or on the dining room chairs. Find a dark brown throw blanket to toss on the back of the loveseat. If you really want to go the extra mile, you can also get a new area rug that ties all of these gorgeous autumn colors together.

Spruce Up the Entryway
If there is one part of your home that every guest is going to see, it is the entryway. Create a cozy space that will give your friends and family the right first impression. You can choose to put a console table at the entry, and accent it with a large vase of sunflowers and a dark-wood framed mirror. Another option is to create a small sitting area using an end table and two occasional chairs in a neutral plaid or hounds tooth fabric.

Finish With Finesse
Now it is all about the finishing touches to make your home ready for all of the guests coming your way this fall. Scented candles are always a nice way to create the warm vibe you are looking for, and they can fill your home with a memory-inducing aroma, such as candles scented like fresh-baked cookies or spiced apple cider. Finally, grab some fallen leaves and incorporate them into your decor. You can put them in small frames and include them in your picture collage or you can strategically place them intermittently throughout your bookcase.
