Warming Up Your Space for the Changing Season

As the seasons change, it’s a wonderful time to take inventory of your spaces and make simple updates to freshen the look. With fall on the horizon, many are looking to add warmth and coziness. Here are some tips to consider for your own spaces:

  1. Colors: Though not something you should do each season, new furniture and paint are great ways to create an impact. Choose warm, earthy tones for your walls, furniture, and accessories. Think cozy shades of brown, beige, or deep reds. These colors create a welcoming and comforting atmosphere.
  2. Textiles: Incorporate soft and plush textiles like throw blankets, pillows, and area rugs. Opt for materials like wool, faux fur, or knitted fabrics to add a cozy touch to your space.
  3. Lighting: Use warm-toned lighting fixtures and bulbs to create a soft and inviting ambiance. Consider adding table lamps or string lights for a warm, gentle glow.
  4. Natural Elements: Bring in natural elements like wood, stone, or plants to add warmth and texture. Wooden furniture or accents can instantly create a cozy and rustic feel.
  5. Fireplace: If you have a fireplace, make it the focal point of your living space. Arrange furniture around it to create a cozy gathering spot. If you don’t have a fireplace, consider adding a mantel or a faux fireplace for a similar effect.
  6. Art and Decor: Hang artwork or photographs that evoke a sense of warmth and nostalgia. Display personal mementos or handmade crafts to add a personal touch to your space.
  7. Candles: Light scented candles to create a warm and inviting scent in your living space. Choose fragrances like vanilla, cinnamon, or warm spices to enhance the cozy atmosphere.
  8. Cozy Seating: Invest in comfortable and inviting seating options like plush sofas or oversized armchairs. Add soft cushions and blankets for extra coziness.
