Make way for fall. If you’re eager to cozy up your home for the coming season, take note of Lyndsi Lee’s recommendations.
Even though the official last day of summer isn’t until later September, Labor Day symbolically draws the finish line. Your summer decor can go into hibernation with your sandals and bathing suits.
I’m seeing plenty of natural and organic finishes. Reclaimed wood, woven fixtures, and lots of greenery! Earthy and modern is the way to go this fall.
The texture! I used to be obsessed with fall colors–deep reds and golden yellow hues–but lately, I prefer neutral fall decor. Fall is perfect for stocking up on throw pillows and blankets in different fabrics. Get a natural basket to stylishly tuck them away when they aren’t in use.
I focus a lot on the foliage as it relates to the season. I switch out the more colorful blooms for deeper hues and evergreens. I’ll even add neutral-colored mums and small pumpkin stems to existing arrangements.
My theory and practice in every season is not to go overboard. I’m not as much of a “less is more” type of person as I am a “just enough is enough.”
While you might like all kinds of fall decor pieces, that doesn’t mean they’ll look great together. Rather than randomly throw things of various colors and finishes together, be intentional when choosing fall decor.
Fall decorating is really all about cozying up your space. Even if you live in an area that doesn’t have true fall weather, it will likely still get a little cooler. Add layers with neutral chunky throw blankets (think white or ivory) to keep things feeling a little lighter.
Patterns can also enhance the fall vibe. Try including textiles with buffalo check or a vintage ticking stripe.
And of course, another seasonal favorite of mine is spiced candles!
It’s way overrated. Now pass me a s’more, please.
