Autumn Decor for Living Room – Bring in the warmth of Fall Indoors!

Summer has sadly come to an end, and while we may not be hitting the beaches and going to the cottage, we can instead embrace the cozy  warmth of a crisp fall day. Autumn is a time for nesting – for cozying up on the couch with a cup of tea and beloved book or enjoying the great outdoors and hiking the trails, taking in the changing fall foliage.

A great start  to getting your room fall-friendly without spending a dime is to update the floor plan. Rearranging existing furniture breathes new life into rooms, and makes great use of existing  peices. An easy way to do this is to use graph paper to rougly sketch out your room’s size and figure out how the pieces will work best before you put the effort into moving them. Once you are happy with your new layout, you can move on to updating  your decor for fall time. A great and easy way to do this is to incorperate luxe, rich textures in throw pillows, blankets and a new area rug. Round rugs provide a nice feel to any room and help soften up hard lines. Think plush fabrics in faux fur, natural fleece, and shag rugs.

Scents are also very important to setting a room’s mood. Diffusers are a great way to add scent and moister to the dryer fall air. Try an essential oil blend of cinnamon, clove, vanilla, orange, and nutmeg. Candles also do double-duty by introducing soft, warm light to contrast the impending chill outside.

Lastly, as pet owners we cannot leave our furry friends out! Get your cat or dog a new bed so they have a spot to sit in your new cozy living room and enjoy the company. Or if you do not have a furry friend, visit your local shelter and change a cat or dog’s life by giving them a forever home! They will instantly make your home feel more cozy and inviting.
