Top 5 Friday: 5 Ways to Cozy Up for Fall

I must say, I’ve always been one to long for the days when the windows are tightly shut against the autumn chill, and I sit snuggled into the sofa, sipping a hot tea. That time of year has now arrived and I'm looking for ways to max out that cozy at-home feeling, to get the most out of fall. Here are five decor reminders to help you create that warm home environment...


Under Your Toes

Not only can an area rug help to ward off your cold bedroom floor, but each time you step out of bed, you can enjoy that delicious feeling of burying your toes in soft, carpet plushness.

Cool Summer Tones to Warm, Soothing Hues

The Decorista blog

If you find your accent pieces remind you of soft, summer's breeze, switch them up for a look that evokes the melancholy beauty of fall: this season's colour palette of dark teals, deep reds and warm browns is a perennial hit with decor aficionados and a look poised to last.

Just Do It: Paint It Dark

The Estate of Things photostream

You've been seeing them for some time now, and the fact that dark, smoky walls aren't going away is a good sign of their aesthetic power. Painting your walls a deep, rich colour such as the above can instantly create a mood. If you've been teetering on taking the plunge, what better time to embrace the dark side than October?

If the Lampshade Fits

For a quick and very inexpensive way to add some drama and warmth to your room, change up your lampshades from your basic white or cream to a dark and moody black.

Fire It Up

October House & Home

Are you one of the lucky ones to own a fireplace? If so, you know that there’s truly nothing like being able to sit by a roaring fire on a chilly day. Many of us however are not that lucky, and to you I say, check out the market of ductless fireplaces -- they've really come a long way, and the investment pays off, season after season!
