Warm Up Your Home For Autumn

The temperature is cooling down and the leaves are changing. Though we love summer and the warmth it brings, we adore the changing scenery during this time of year. We have gone through constant changes and shifts over the past few months, but this new transition is one that finally feels familiar and natural. This is an honest time for contemplation as we begin to reflect on the year heading into the end of the 2020. Along with shifts and changes, autumn is also when many people embrace change by restyling their homes with layers and warm tones to imitate the beauty outside. Here are some of our favorite design tips to warm up your space!

Layers on Layers

Whether it is on your floor, your sofa, or in your bedroom, utilize layers to make your space warmer, more restful, and inviting. We love layering various elements in a vignette while focusing on color and lighting. Play with different hues from the same fall-inspired palette–bring in the beautiful natural colors found in the changing trees. We love pairing creamy neutrals with rich oranges, rusty reds, and mustard yellows. You can play with one color and find various shades to use throughout your home, or mix in all of them!

Mixing together lighting elements is key to curating a deep and cozy atmosphere in your home. Using warm-toned light bulbs in light fixtures is a quick fix, but we love taking it a step further by increasing the quantity of smaller table lamps and candles of various sizes to illuminate your home more cozily and romantically.

Texture is Everything

Rich textiles are a lovely way to not only warm up your space but the perfect excuse to make each little corner a special one that you want to snuggle into with a good book and a cup of tea each night. Velvets are always popular for fall and winter, but we love layering various textures together. Not only do we love piling together chunky knit throws during this time of year, but we challenge you to experiment with a variety of upholstery types throughout living rooms and bedrooms. As for your floor, pairing a handwoven jute rug with a vibrant overdyed rug or a vintage vinyl is one of our favorite timeless looks!

Embracing the perfectly imperfect marvel found in natural reclaimed woods is another one of our favorite design styles perfect for fall. The use of rough-hewn natural wood brings to life a one of a kind rustic feel to your home–wooden stump stools or side tables make for a perfect addition in any corner.

Fall Florals

At TREE, we always like to bring height to each room with the use of alluring houseplants of different sizes. Year-round, fresh greenery brightens up a room while bringing literal life to your home sanctuary. For the autumn season, we love a mix of fresh and dried plants and flowers. Dried eucalyptus, wheat sprigs or pampas grass are perfect additions to a ceramic or recycled-glass vase. To keep the look fresh and modern, mix and match glasses and vases while pairing them with a single stem.

While you refresh your space this season, remember that this Autumn 2020 is a beautiful reminder that good things are ahead and change is eager to be embraced. As we enter this new season brimming with gratitude, let’s open our hearts, minds, and homes to the joys and comforts associated with the holidays ahead.
