Tips & Tricks Thursday – 4 for Fall

Okay. Okay.

I may be going a bit overboard here in the “wishing for Fall weather” category, but seriously, it’s the middle of September and my warm weather clothing strike is getting a bit uncomfortable.

So here’s my list of 4 simple things to help your home (weather outside be damned) feel a little more like Fall.

1. Winter White

Just because it gets darker earlier doesn’t mean that your interior needs to become gloomy. And although it’s fun to add some moody colors to the palette, maybe try a different approach using a crisp white mixed with textured neutrals (…I’m thinking gray) and soft wood tones. And throw in a splash of black to take advantage of this seasons black/white trend.

2. Wood / Metal Combination

I love the idea of combining different elements – especially a luxe metal and a rustic wood (SO wrong but yet SO right…). Something about the combination is fresh for the season. Try it out with a small piece like these frames from Nate Berkus’s Fall 2013 collection at Target. (or DIY with a simple frame and some gold spray paint!)

3. Velvet

This is something that screams supple and cozy. Perfect for the cooler months. (Unfortunately for me, I have a husband who hates the feel of the stuff…) You don’t have to reupholster the sofa (although a chocolate brown velvet sofa makes me drool), just try popping in an accent pillow in a neutral color (think chocolate, slate, or smokey taupe), or punch it up a bit with a jewel toned ottoman or accent chair. Either way, you’ll be majorly upping the cozy-factor.

4. Luxe Throws

Whether it’s wool, cashmere, fur, or thick cable knit – nothing says “let’s curl up on the sofa in our jammies” like a cozy throw blanket. This season, think about texture, rich colors, and classic patterns. I’m loving the traditional plaid (yes, plaid), but also fancy a modern-preppy vibe with a crisp herringbone pattern. It’s not only cozy, but looks great draped (or folded) across your sofa as an accent unto itself.

  1. The weather here is definitely not Fall yet either. Can’t wait to pull out my boots and sweaters. Great choices to add a fall “feeling” to home. I love those Nate Berkus frames!
