Ok PSL lovers, time to unite! I was recently at an event with some girlfriends who expressed how they were both excited but overwhelmed to decorate their spaces to reflect the change in season. So like a good little Design addict, I’ve decided to sit down and take a few minutes to talk Fall Decorating with you and give you concrete examples of what we've been swooning over to welcome the new season and how it can be easy for you to do so too! Click on the photos to see where we're finding our new obsessions!
The first and easiest way to get your home ready for fall is introducing warm colours to your home. This year we’re seeing Warm Creams, Dark Blues, Rich Plums and (do I dare say it?!) Orange! Introducing colour doesn’t have to be expensive, it could be as easy as a new throw for the couch, a few decorative pillows, fresh flowers, a table runner or some cute accessories.
The quickest way to warm up a space is to light a small fire. Since not all of us have fireplaces a way to work around this is to invest in some cute candles to immediately warm up a space and turn your living space into a cozy and comfy home. Fire up those candles and throw on your comfiest flannels and summer will be a distant memory as you psych yourself up for a new season. Pro tip: find candles with Basic scents like “Mulled Cider & Cinnamon ” and “Crackling Firewood Ember” to really bring out your Fall obsession.
Same concept as colour, introducing textures to your home is an easy way to warm up a space. Marrying warm tones with warm textures will get your home ready for the Holidays and quickly invite all those warm fuzzy feels of Pumpkin Spiced Lattés and wool socks. Textures we’ve been using this fall are faux fur in throws, velvet pillows, wood and metallic accessories, and greenery.
Very obviously the first accessory that pops into mind when thinking Fall accessories is the coveted (overrated?) pumpkin which is a Fall staple in every Pinterest-ing individual’s home – myself included. But why not?? With all the different sizes, colours and finishes pumpkins come in these days they make for the perfect and easiest way to put your own unique twist on the traditional pumpkin. Another Fall fave of course is the wreath, among many other fun accessories that declare “Hey Fall, let’s do this!”
Getting ready for Fall and cooler weather is always exciting to me because it reminds me that the Holidays are quickly approaching and that means hosting! One way to get excited about Fall is to give your dining set a makeover. Investing in a holiday table runner, place mats and new tableware is another way to get your home ready for all the cider drinking and fire gazing you’ll be indulging in in the months to come.
