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.
Paint one wall in a fall accent color, which will dramatically change the look of a room for a minimal time commitment and cost. Choose candles in glorious autumn scents. Try the following scents: apple cider, cinnamon, pine, nutmeg and pumpkin spice. Not only will the candles add a warm glow to match the warm fall colors, but they will also fill your home with distinctive aromas of the season.
Now that you've softened the floor, dressed the sofa, and decorated the table it's time to add inspiration to the walls. Consider creating your own works of art by taking photos of fall imagery and framing them in handsome wood or elegant metals. Most home furnishings stores carry a wide selection of framed prints landscapes, still lifes, Impressionist visions, abstract contemporaries. Special cards and notes you have received can also make a lovely statement as a framed memento. Don't forget children's artwork to add color and whimsy. By using ready-made, standard frames you can change out the work as often as new pieces are brought from school! You can also frame up a host of non-paper elements; try a family heirloom quilt hung on a wall, or a needlepoint scene crafted over several months, elegantly framed. Perhaps you have collectibles that would benefit from shadow boxing, like tickets and programs from shows or sports memorabilia. Make it personal and flexible to suit your mood and the changing seasons.
