Candles have become ever popular accent today. Look for texture like beeswax, and subtle colors ivory, gold, bronzes and coppers to add a gleam. Available in a wide range of hues, scents, shapes and sizes - you can mix and match to suit your taste. Remember to vary the heights and use odd numbered groupings for a more eclectic and festive feel. Include an array of shapes too, cylindrical, square, triangular, and round are among the most popular. Avoid placing candles on the same surface where there is a lamp - good rule of thumb is to avoid using candles where you have another light source. Use scented candles sparingly and with care so as not to compete with each other. Many are made without scent, particularly for those persons who may be allergy sensitive.
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.
Your mantle will highlight your room so you want to decorate it accordingly. Outline or trim your mantle in leaf garland that can be picked up at any home decorating store. You can accent the mantle with a few candles that are brown in color. You don't want to place too many decorations on the mantle or it will look too crowded. Keep it simple and remember to only accent it. You want the rest of your room to blend in together with the mantle. Place a natural flokati rug down in front of the fireplace, but far enough away that it won't catch on fire when you are burning your wood. The flokati rugs are beautiful ad ca match with almost any decor. You ca also buy colored flokati rugs that can blend I with your decor. These rugs are also made from different material as well.
