Tips for Creating an Autumn Feeling In Your Home Posted on 17 Oct 11:26 , 0 comments

It's Time to Add a Warm & Cozy Feel to Your Home

The weather is finally starting to turn cooler and the kids are back in school. It's amazing how our mindsets change with the seasons. Autumn has always been my favorite season having grown up in New England. Even though I've lived in southern California for many years, I still love the crisp fall evenings and the change of colors as the leaves begin to change.

As we start to pull out our fall wardrobes and start thinking about wearing sweaters and scarves (yes, even in southern California!) it's also time to think about making a few changes in our homes that make them feel a little warmer and cozier.

Add the Glow of Candlelight to Your Home

At this time of year as darkness comes earlier, I love to light candles. There's nothing like the glow of candlelight to add drama to your home. Scents like vanilla, pumpkin, and clove smell wonderful at this time of year and will fill your home with a warm and spicy fragrance. 

I've included in this post some tips for bringing the warmth and beauty of autumn into your home. Just click on each photo for a zoomable image and detailed information.

This gorgeous candle sconce would be a beautiful addition to your home during this fall season. Add one in your kitchen or a pair on either side of a mirror or artwork in your entry or dining room.

We have a fantastic selection of candelholders, candle sconces, and candelabras. I hope you find a special one for your home.

Enjoy Entertaining with Some New Trays

It's fun to entertain at this time of year, and serving trays are so useful when you have a crowd. Use them for serving drinks, appetizers, or desserts.

Add Fall Color with a New Floral Arrangement

I love adding flowers to my home. They brighten the decor and add beautiful touches of color. Sometimes it's nice to have an arrangement or two that doesn't need watering and will last indefinitely. Think about adding some fall color with one of our lifelike arrangements.

I love this unique arrangement with its beautiful shades of terra cotta, gold, and green. It will add a burst of color to liven up your space for the autumn season.

Highlight Your Family, Friends, and Travels

Adding photos of family, friends, and favorite travels is a great way to add a personal touch to your home. Think about adding some new frames to highlight your favorite photos.

Accessories in Autumn Shades Add Beauty to Your Home

Adding some decorative pieces to your decor will bring the beautiful colors of autumn into your home. Art glass, in particular, is a stunning way to add color and beauty.
