I just read a decorating post about warming up your space for Fall. But if all your walls and furniture and decor are white and grey, you’ve got your work cut out.
Why not put old fashioned colorful quilts on those white chairs, soft camel throws on the couch with scarlet-streaked pillows, and warm amber lightbulbs under those stark white lampshades and then . . .
Paint your walls something warm and marvelous, such as butter yellow, or golden umber. Maybe a deep terra cotta trimmed in olive green or a dusty apricot with creamy trim would really light your fire.
Fire. If you have a fireplace, you understand fire power. If not, light candles until you can get one, or at least a facsimile.
Move some art around. Go through the house and find the warmest and brightest of your art and bring it to the most-used areas, which are likely the living room and kitchen.
Cook. Soup. Cook soup. And muffins. And don’t stint on the butter.
Use warm spices. Spray the house with spicy essential oil scents, cook spicy foods, warm up some cider and keep the tea kettle whistling.
Even if it’s still 90-plus degrees at your house, Fall is coming and it’s time to get ready!
It’s Fall and it’s cozy and warm and welcoming time.
