Fall is in the air, well close enough for me anyway. It's my favorite season, so I tend to start celebrating it before most people.
I love the smells of fall, the cool breezes, the excuse to wear coats and boots, the football games, the fires, the pumpkins, the colors of the falling leaves. It all makes me so happy.
My thought is, if you love the changes going on outside so much, why not bring them into your home as well? And no, I don't mean putting pumpkins and leaves everywhere inside your house. It only takes changing a few things to get your house Autumn ready. Here are a few rooms that say "fall" to me. Maybe they will inspire you to find ways to make your home feel like fall as well.
This room is filled with warmth-from the orange and green pillows, to the rich wood tones to the glowing fireplace. Doesn't it look like a place you'd like to rest on cool fall day?
One of the things I like most about the fall is all of the rustic charm it brings. This room is a great example of that with its exposed wood beams, textured adobe fireplace and simple wooden stools. And the brown and gold tones throughout the space bring the colors of fall from outside in.
Hello plaid! If plaid doesn't scream "fall" to you, I don't know what will. I have to admit it's definitely not my favorite pattern, but I think it the right space, it can be beautiful. Take this room for example. I think what keeps the space from being overwhelming is the fact that the plaid patterns are varied and spread throughout the space. They are also balanced by the solid cream furniture and moldings and offset by the dark shades, chair and artwork. So what could have been overdone turns out to be a warm and inviting space.
This room is unlike the rest in that it is much more modern than the previous spaces. So what then makes this space feel cozy like fall? The color palette! Color is one of the biggest and easiest ways to affect the mood and feel of your room. In this case, the rich brown and burnt orange give this space a feeling warmth. And even though the light fixture is modern, its rich color keeps it from feeling too cold and sterile. Another element that says "fall" to me is the pattern on the drapes. To me, they're reminiscent of a tree that's lost all of its leaves and is left with only empty branches. What reminds you of fall?
