Autumn is arguably the most beautiful time of year in Virginia: colorful foliage across the rolling hills, and brisk “sweater weather” to enjoy a visit to the pumpkin patch or local winery. And as much as we love the outdoors, there’s no reason why you can’t bring that same feeling into your home. We’ve gathered some quick tips to “fall” in love with your home this season!
Now is the perfect time to bring out the blankets and extra pillows to make your space feel extra cozy. Rugs are also the perfect way to create warmth, especially when layered atop one another. It also adds dimension, personality and a bit of the unexpected. Think patterns like plaid and houndstooth, shades of burgundy, forest green and camel, and warm fabrics like suede, leather, and wool.
THE FIRST IMPRESSION
Decorate your front porch with pumpkins, lanterns, corn husks, rustic fall florals arranged with dried berries and foraged materials like pampas grass, and even a friendly scarecrow to make a great first impression and set the autumn mood for your family and your house guests. Bring the outside in with foraged fall arrangements throughout the home.
Enhance the fall feeling with scented candles and room sprays. Nothing says autumn like the smell of cedar, rosemary, bergamot, pear and chai!
