CREATING “COZY” – Warm up your home for Fall

Cooler temperatures and the crisp crunch of leaves underfoot tell the story: Fall is in the air, and winter will soon follow. MDC asked three top designers to share their tips for dressing your home for the season.

I have four tricks that really help transform a home from summer to fall.

1. Put away your cotton or silk blankets and bring in a fur or cashmere throw.

2. Fragrance really can set the tone – change your light summer floral candles to sandalwood, tobacco, apple or patchouli for the fall.

3. Change ottoman slip covers from linen to a wool print or velvet solid.

4. For a huge impact – but a bit more costly – try trading (or layering) your seagrass or basketweave area rugs with wool or darker patterned rugs.

Nothing brings warmth to a room as quickly and easily as color. Bringing in a warm color like Benjamin Moore’s “Pennies from Heaven”, a rich orange, will add a shot of energy. Try it on just one wall, and add some new throw pillows to match – it will make you smile!

When we think of fall, we think of how we can counteract the shorter daylight hours. We love adding candles to a room for that warm glow of light. Try grouping them together or putting them in hurricanes to add instant warmth and interest to the space. The cold weather months offer the opportunity to add different textures to create “layers”. Bring in an animal print rug or throw, put a runner in your hallway and add some velvet pillows and you will be ready for that first snowy evening!
