7 Quick Updates to Get Your Living Room Ready for Fall
When the temperature starts to drop, we start to swap. Sunny bright patterns get replaced with classic plaids, and cool, breezy cotton gets substituted with warm wools and velvets. And since the best part of fall is kissing your bikini body bye-bye and cozying up on the couch with a pumpkin spice latte, you better make sure that your hibernation station is up to par. From soft textures to warm woods, here’s how to get your living room fall-ready in just a few simple steps.
Start with First Base: When you have a great canvas to begin with, making seasonal updates is easy. A large jute rug and a neutral colored sofa is always a great start!
Throw on the Throws: Layer, layer, and layer some more. What goes better with your favorite flannel PJs than a cashmere tartan throw?
And Pile on the Pillows: Okay, we’ll admit it, we may have a small pillow problem. But it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. In luxe fabrics and seasonal patterns, pillows add a sense of warmth (and style) within any space. Here we mixed solid color velvet pillows with plaids and leather.
Accessorize with Earthy Elements: Stop what you’re doing and step away from the pinecones. It’s already been done! Instead, opt for autumn accents like cotton boll bouquets, eucalyptus branches, and some pretty candles.
Add Wooden Accents: Fall wouldn’t be well, fall, without some woodsy elements. Pick up birch logs and a wooden tray for serious cabin vibes.
Let there be Light: Shorter days and longer nights mean you’ll need to up your lighting game. We recommend layering plenty of lamps for maximum light.
Swap out Art: Beach prints are nice and all, but man, do we love a moody makeover. Transform your gallery wall with black and white abstract art. Simple, yet beautiful, monochromatic art matches almost everything and makes a major statement.
