Layer Up and Get Cozy

After the carefree summer when the lines between inside and outside rooms tend to blur – it’s time for the doors and windows to close and your home to once again become a retreat.

In the warmer months when you may have craved a simpler look, Fall decorating is all about layers. Consider giving those seaglass tones a break until spring in favor of more seasonal pillows or throws.

In the same way that you dress yourself for cooler weather, add layers to your home with pillows and throw blankets. Use this time to experiment with mixing textures, patterns, and colors.

Here are my TIPS for injecting cozy elements in to your home this season – along with some of my favourite pieces in stores to create the look in your own home!

Think Warm Tones – Even bright white and black (my home’s interior palate) can feel autumnal when combined with warm oranges and browns. Pull those accessories out of the closet. During the cold, dark winter, seeing your favorite things will offer a sense of comfort.

Bring the outside, IN. Embrace Autumn’s beauty and bring some of those inside – From gourds to colorful squash and pumpkins to natural elements such tree branches, acorns, pinecones, and leaves – all create dimension, interest, and texture to any room – and they are an easy and affordable way to accessorize!152840981073379116_sarhas2c_c
