Fallish well that is the word we are using around our home right now. We are creating simple cozy fall looks that are giving the first glimpses of fall. Oh how we wish the weather outside would match our inside right now. Although no pumpkins have made their appearance yet, they are sure to follow soon. Since the beginning of fall in NC is still rather hot, I chose to bring the seasons in with pears, apples, mustard and rust tones, and of course cozy textures.
Bring in the Colors
When transitioning from any season, my first step is to always bring in that seasons colors. Each season has a certain color scheme to it, I feel. I use the colors that I see when driving the mountains to bring into my home. This is the base to your creation. Starting the entry way I just added in some fall tone leaves that were mostly green to start the fall feeling. Then a mustard tones throw paired with a a cream and gray colored one. Final pop was a dark green plaid backpack to get that fall feeling flowing.
Layering the cozy
Layering the cozy in is the best way to get the sense of fall is coming. Starting in the bedroom with some fun new fall bedding. Instead of just a quilt or a comforter, I layered them both in. I finished with some chunky pillows and a pop off fall color with the duvet layering across the top.
Creating fall staples
When I think of fall I think of apple cider, pumpkins, colors of fall, and all the cozy. Since it is still too hot here in NC at the start of the season for pumpkins, I love using apples. This year I created a simple layered apple cider bar to get that fall spirit started. I did a fun canvas sign paired with a vintage mug rack. This help give height to the space. I finished off with some apple greenery, fresh honey crisp apples, and a layered in cutting board. Layering it up is so much fun with fall staples. This gave a fun fall festival look to our dining room. For your own personal touch you could do any fall fruit you wanted.
Over on the china hutch, I just had some fun adding in personal touches. These dried gourds and old vintage picture frames I had. They pair well together with some fall faux stems to add that color of fall in. You can add anything you want in that makes you think of fall!
