Fall is upon us and there's no better way to prepare your home for the colder season than by incorporating some small touches and experimenting with new textures.
Real Simple has explored some small ways that you can incorporate new details into your home for the fall and we've picked out the best for you here!
Switch out pillows and blankets
Thicker blankets will make your home (and you!) warmer for the fall and going into the winter, you can also incorporate different textures and darker colors, faux fur or chunky knits. New throw pillows are also a cheap and easy way to incorporate a new color scheme into a room.
Update your mantel
Whether you have a fireplace or another focal point in your living room, this is the perfect opportunity to re-style it with new art pieces, objects and candles that are more reminiscent of the fall. You'll be spending more time indoors so this is a great opportunity to keep this space fresh.
Purchase some fall foliage
Summer isn't the only season for bringing plants into your home. Green garland, autumn leaves and other flowers such as dahlias and chrysanthemums are all in season. By putting these in pretty vases with darker tones you can bring everything you love about the changing season into your home.
Add new prints
Plaid, stripes, tartan are all great new patterns you could use to replace the bright colors and florals from the summer. The warmer patterns are a good way to incorporate some excitement if your current decor is pretty neutral or solid, whether in the form of a rug, blanket, pillow or picture.
Bring in more light
With the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer you can further transform a room by bringing in more light. String lights create a season feeling or switch out your current bulbs for more muted tones. You can also incorporate a variety of lighting options to decide when you want a room to be lit up or dark and cozy.
Get new bedding
Save on heating and upgrade your bedding with more layers, cozier fabrics and darker tones. Tailored quilts, heavier duvets and additional throw blankets are an easy way to make your bed more inviting when it's cold outside.
