How to Get Your Home Ready For Fall

Someone has to say it: Cold days are right around the corner. As we enjoy our last few blissful weeks of summer, it’s wise to start getting our homes ready for fall before it sneaks up on us. Luckily, there are many affordable and practical ways to get your home prepared for the season ahead. Bring on the pumpkins!

Warmth and Texture 

We tend to spend a lot more time on our couches in the colder months so it’s important to make your living room as cozy as possible. By switching out light, summery throw pillow covers with warm colors and soft textures, you can give your couch a completely new look.

Blankets and Baskets 

A cozy living room isn’t complete without at least a few soft throws. Movie marathons require several of them, so attractive storage options are necessary. Consider a wooden crate or woven basket like the ones below. Don’t have the space? Use a ladder to hang extra blankets.

Mudroom Musts

Although many of us don’t have a designated mudroom, creating an organized space for boots, hats, gloves, etc. is important when trying to keep your wintertime sanity. A few baskets, hooks, a boot tray and voila! You have an organized entryway.

It’s The Little Things…

Sometimes making small tweaks to your home decor can make all the difference. Create warm ambiance with candles or bring the outdoors in with a low-maintenance houseplant like aloe, which also purifies the air. You will be spending more time inside, so might as well make the best of it!
