How to Cozy-Up Your Home for Fall

With the beauty of fall in full-swing, it's the perfect time to offer some ideas on how you can get that fall-feeling throughout your home. Get inspired and try these simple design tricks to make your spaces warmer and more inviting for the cooler days ahead.


Layer, Layer, Layer

Fashion and home décor often play off of one another, so it’s no surprise that home décor enthusiasts also love the opportunity to layer! Adding layers to your room is an easy way to soften the space and provide depth. The fall is a perfect opportunity to layer throws, rugs, add in more pillows and window treatments to soften the space and make it more inviting.


Play With Textures

Swapping out your linen or light cotton fabrics for heavier twills, velvets or knits is a great way to cozy-up your textures for the fall. Also, incorporating a mix of materials such as metals and wood accents will add visual interest and a cozier feel.


Update Your Storage

Now that you’ll be spending more time indoors over the coming months, update your storage and hide away unsightly items so that your spaces are peaceful and relaxing. Two of our favourite ways to do this are by using closed storage cabinets and baskets (sooo many baskets)!


Introduce Fall Tones

Just because it’s October does not mean your only option is to decorate with orange! Adding in jewel tones, such as deep purples, dark greens, black and navy have a way of introducing colour into your space that will last throughout the cooler months. Often, it’s as simple as swapping out a couple of pillows for darker fall tones to completely change your look. Making this quick switch will help update your home for the season with minimal investment.  


Get Ready for Hosting Season

We have officially migrated indoors and are quickly approaching the hosting season with loads of parties and get togethers on the horizon. Now is a great time to invest in serving pieces and table-top items to showcase your supreme hosting skills! New candlesticks, serving boards and fresh linens will do the trick to amp up your serving style!
