Everyone’s favorite season for pumpkin spiced lattes and walks through foliage filled parks is finally here! This season, give your new Miller & Smith home a few quick and easy updates to make it feel even more like fall. Check out our suggestions for an ultra cozy home to enjoy right now:
Accessorize your furniture
By loading up your couches and chairs with some warm accessories, you will never be without a comfortable spot to watch movies or read a good book. We recommend thicker and softer fabrics for any pillows or throw blankets you are going to add to your furniture, like flannel or sheepskin.
Update your outdoor spaces
Just like you can add blankets and pillows to the indoor furniture, you can also add cushions to your outdoor furniture so it is more comfortable to enjoy these spaces longer throughout the year. If you’re a family who wants to enjoy the outdoors all year round, an outdoor space heater can also be a great investment.
Warm it up
As the days are getting shorter and you crave some more light in your home, fire up the fireplace or light some candles. Not only will this create a relaxing atmosphere, you will be able to smell all of the scents that remind you of autumn, like cinnamon, nutmeg, firewood, and pumpkin.
Add some layers
As you start to layer your clothes for the chillier weather, you can also layer in your home! Adding (and even layering) area rugs prevents you from having to scurry across hardwood floors in the colder months. If you want to add other cozy details, you can add tablecloths or runners to other surfaces in your home.
Pile on the bedding
Because our region is beginning to feel the effects of fall weather, you are most likely turning off your AC already and opening the windows to take in the crisp breeze. Since the nights can get a little bit chilly, you will need some extra layers on your bed, like a throw blanket, flannel sheets or even more pillows.
Become one with the outdoors
The fall season introduces us to many beautiful colors on the changing trees, in apple orchards, pumpkin farms, and even seasonal flowers. Bring all of these beautiful colors into your home with a festive wreath or fruit display.
