It's finally starting to feel a little like fall in the Northeast! After a brutally hot summer, it's nice to see signs of cooler weather to come. We had a wonderful – but busy! – summer. We spent time traveling, enjoying the company of family and friends, and worked on some fantastic projects, too. Although I enjoy my fair share of summer soirées, I always welcome the calm and comfortable feel of the fall season.
Along with the change of season comes many quintessential fall favorites like pumpkin scented candles and flavored coffee, warm cozy layers, hot apple cider, and football games. Heading out to apple pick for the day and coming home to bake homemade apple pies is one of my favorite fall activities. Even Sunday dinners with the family are more delightful in the fall with the warmth of a fire and a savory home-cooked meal, followed by a laid back and relaxing night with popcorn and a movie.
There’s something about the beautiful and harmonious shades of the changing leaves and the chill in the air that can trigger a change of scenery – and I don’t mean outside! A fall color palette can be easily adapted in any room of the home to create a cozy and inviting feel. Just as your wardrobe can change with the seasons, your décor can transition, too. Swap out bright floral accessories for rich autumnal hues like sienna, maroon, chocolate brown and auburn. Add in extra layers of texture with faux fur pillows, cashmere throws, and leather-wrapped accent furniture.
A fresh coat of paint on a front door and some decorative seasonal accessories offer a warm welcome to guests. Simple updates such as these can help evolve your décor along with the season. The rich warmth in the colors of fall offers some of the best inspiration for interior design.
