How to Transition Your Space Into Fall

It’s September, cue the back to school commercials, that ever depressing Green Day song and Ugg season. Welcome to the weird time of the year where it’s cold in the morning, 98 degrees in the afternoon and cold again at night. A little time in LA we like to call Fall. Don’t worry in a month or two it’ll be cold-ish all day.

Fall decor can be confusing. It’s not quite Christmas nor is it Thanksgiving. But it’s definitely starting to get cozier in your home. The fireplace that was kept empty all summer now may have a piece of firewood or two in it. The chunky knit blankets that match your itchy sweater are on the couch and the ever infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks.

 

You’re probably asking yourself, what is fall decor or what does this all mean for your living room? Your bedroom? It means you need to warm up the space. Fall decor doesn’t have to be cheesy Thanksgiving themed pieces or plastic “fall” colored leaves. Swap your cotton sheets for warm jersey or flannel, add a quilt or warm throw blanket, or add textured, jewel toned throw pillows to your sofa. Trust me and skip the “Give Thanks” pillows and plastic pumpkins. Pick sophisticated pieces that add to your space without clutter.

Also this doesn’t just apply to the living room or bedroom, this can apply to the kitchen and dining room as well. The kitchen is easy, you can change the fruit bowl on the counter to a fall color, change tea towels, or add a fall flower arrangement to the kitchen table. The dining room you can switch out the runner or centerpiece.

 

Having interchangeable pieces such as pillows, throws, and other decor items help you change the vibe of your space easily. This gives you the ability to create a whole new space without a high cost or starting from scratch. And who likes living in the same space everyday? Fall is about change. Change is good, isn’t it the only thing we can really count on other than taxes, death, and getting ghosted by our latest tinder date?
