Autumn is upon us, and it’s time to start thinking about a few home accessories that can spice up your home.
With more and more people working from home, there’s a huge need to be inspired by our surroundings, and as our homes are our safe havens, making them feel cozy is more crucial than ever.
Finding ways to integrate colors into your home will help tie your decor plan together; however, you don’t need to go all out to do this. You can start by adding touches of browns, oranges, or greens into different elements of your home decor plan.
For example, implementing a touch of green could mean hanging a few plants, such as hearts of strings or strings of nickels. If you don’t have any places to ride, you could look at standing plants, too. Adding beautiful stones to the pots is a really stylish way to upgrade your house plants.
Furthermore, let’s not forget about the well-being benefits of integrating plants into your living space, and that it brings an element of feng shui to the home. This can improve mental health, among other benefits, such as increasing productivity.
Material decor and comfort
With dark nights, Halloween, and Christmas fast approaching, adding pumpkin and fall-inspired blankets and warm-colored pillows will help reflect the new season.
For more neutral or cool tones, rugs can give your living room or hallway a comfortable and relaxing feel. You might even think about orange, knitted, or soft cushions – or even brown, neutral throw blankets.
Spicing up your centerpieces
Centerpieces or table decorations can truly transform the look and feel of a room. This can include scented pumpkin, cinnamon-spiced candles, glass trays on kitchen tables, or even countertops.
To spice up a tray or centerpiece and add an element of the autumnal outdoors, add some decorative pebbles and pine cones to the mix, played off against a small knotted candle or diffuser; or even dried leaves or petals. To finish off this autumn and winter look, you can wrap some LED or fairy lights around your centerpiece for a soft and warm highlight.
Curves and edges
Adding curves or arches, e.g., rounded mirrors, ceramic vases, curved candles or dome lamps could also be good for tying your interior design together.
Adding LED or fairy lights around your house can be a great way to enhance coziness while it’s cold outside. Try wrapping lights at various moments around the house, such as stairways, fireplaces, or, as mentioned earlier, vases and centerpieces.
Stylish seasonal decor
Seasonal decorations include pumpkins, pine cones, dried pampas, or dried foliage, helping instill an element of calmness while also complementing your color scheme and other decorative pieces.
Focussing more on the lighting and temperature of your home will also transform your home from a relaxed summer vibe to a warm winter feel. If you have a fireplace, now’s the time to turn it on and cozy up to that soothing crackle.
Alternatively, if you don’t have an open fireplace, a new and innovative idea would be to put a video on in the background, with a fireplace track softly playing. You can always use digital technology, including lighting and sound, to create an atmosphere.
There are various ways you can spice up your home for the colder months. Whether it’s through adding LED lights or candles, ultimately, everybody’s goal is to feel inspired and comfortable in their own home. Implementing these transformations in your home can help you do just that.
