It's the little things. Lampshades and picture frame mats are often overlooked when updating for the season, but changing them is an easy and effective way to change a room. Whether it's shades on your overhead lighting fixture or the lampshades in your family room, add a new, colorful shade to create a different feeling in the room. If you picture frame mats are white/cream consider adding a mat with color to add a pop to your pictures. Use the same color on all mats to unify your photos.
Change where you sit and stand. If your upholstered furniture has slipcovers, consider changing those out for the season. Look out below and add an area rug, or change the ones you already have, and you instantly add warmth and update your seating areas. Warm up the kitchen without cooking. Don't forget the heart of most homes-the kitchen. Stews aren't the only thing that can warm up your kitchen on a chilly day, add new dishtowels, table cloths, table runners and even dishes, to give your fall cooking an instant update.
A new 'Welcome.' Update your exterior entry way with a new welcome mat, one that can handle the fall/winter traffic and that coordinates with your home. Blanket your rooms with warmth. On your bed and sofa, or on a window seat, add a warm blanket in a fall color that coordinates with your decor (think warm oranges, reds, plums, browns, greens or deep gold tones). This is both practical and beautiful-adding a new color to an often-used living space creates an instant update. If you are changing your entire bedding for the season, consider changing your bed skirt, too.
