4 tips to refresh your space for fall

Fall always does this to me… gives me that “back to school” feeling that makes me want to buy fall clothes, cozy up our home, and prepare for cooler temperatures. It’s still pretty hot here in Birmingham, so it may be a little too early to start pulling out the blankets and boots but, it’s the perfect time to do a little refresh of your space. I’ve been dreaming of cozier textures, monochromatic colors and metallic tones, and Target and World Market are having a major moment right now. These are a few of my fall favorites and 4 tips to prep your home for Fall.

Clear out and simplify :: this is an important step this time of year, as you prepare for the holiday decor ahead (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas…). Clear out any unnecessary clutter and simplify your accessories to give your space a little breathing room. It may look stark at first, but it will be like a breath of fresh air and give you a blank(er) canvas to work with once you do start adding in those holiday touches.

Add a few new finds :: adding in a few new pieces to your decor can make the biggest difference. Small changes, like swapping out your throw pillows or artwork, or restyling your mantel, can help revitalize and refresh your space.

Bring the fall foliage in :: 
An easy way to bring some of the beauty of fall into your home is to literally bring some of the fall leaves inside. Instead of a vase of flowers, try a collection of cotton stems or magnolia branches. These richer colors and warmer textures add a fall element to your home in a simple, natural way.

Swap color for texture :: with the beautiful fall leaves and colorful pumpkins, it’s a great time to swap out the bright colors in your home for more textural neutrals. This allows your fall plants and accessories really pop, while still having interest and warmth through texture. Think faux fur, sea-grass, wood tones, metallics etc.

There's just something so wonderful about the change of seasons - Saturday football, crisp mornings, and the refreshing-ness of change. Welcome fall, we're ready for ya!
