Happy Fall, y’all! With the change of season, comes a change in your household. Scents, sights, wardrobe, it all shifts with the new season. As the cool autumn breezes and pumpkin spice start to waft into your days, make sure your home is up to par for fall! Here are our tips for creating a cozy, fall festive household.
It’s time to put those tank tops and bikini bottoms away for the year. Fill your hangers with soft sweaters, warm flannels, and cozy hoodies. Since fall and winter clothing tends to be bulkier, the easiest way to make room for them is to put all of your spring and summer apparel pieces into organized bins, and store them in your garage, basement, or attic until next year. TIP: Save a couple warm weather items for days when the air isn’t so chilly. Pick items that can be layered with a cardigan or can be transformed into fall appropriate outfits.
Everyone knows that one of the best places to be in the fall is in the kitchen. There are so many good flavors and food associated with this time of year, and there’s nothing like hot soup on a chilly day. To get you in the fall spirit, add some pumpkins, mums, leaves, and fairy lights to give you a beautiful autumn ambience in your kitchen. This is also a great time to check your pantry and fridge for any expired ingredients!
Now’s the time to change your bedding out! Cooler nights mean more blankets and warmer pajamas. Opt for flannel sheets and a heavier comforter to keep you nice and cozy. Color coordinate with the season to give your room an extra boost of autumn.
With the start of school, fall sports, and the hustle and bustle of everyday life, your entrance way could take a hard hit with kicked-off boots, jacket piles, and unhung hats. Placing shelving or an organizer like this one will keep your doorway clutter and mess free during this busy season.
For those who don’t know, hygge is defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).” To add some hygge to your space, consider incorporating throw blankets, pillows, candles, string lights, anything that makes you feel comfy and cozy.
