Leaves changing, temperatures dropping, sweet smells drifting in the air… the season of cozy comfort is in full swing. To transition into the holiday season, embrace a warm new atmosphere by changing out or adding in affordable, decorative pieces.
Check out these 10 tips for making a soothing and snuggly atmosphere in your home this season:
Focus on warm colors and neutrals.
Imitating what you see out the window is an easy way to begin. Let nearby foliage or landscape inspire your color palette. To keep things simple and streamlined, pick 2 colors (like mustard and rust or cranberry and evergreen) and 2 neutrals (like cream and brown) for the bulk of your seasonal decor.
We don’t believe there can ever be too many candles! Lit or unlit, they always add instant coziness. Choose scents like cedar, cinnamon and spices, bergamot, vanilla, cider, or wood to add to the seasonal ambiance.
Update your entryway.
A new wreath and a festive doormat can do wonders for your porch! Let Hamrick’s spice up your patio and entryway with fresh fall and winter features to welcome you home.
Bring in texture.
Use knit blankets, plaids, and woven baskets to add interest, texture, and warmth to any room. Bring the season in from the outdoors by adding gorgeous fallen leaves and dry branches to your centerpieces, curio cabinets and favorite vases.
Change up the fireplace.
A basket of blankets, a cluster of candles varying in height, a garland of leaves, pumpkins, gourds, holly berries—the options are endless! The mantle is the perfect place to showcase some new seasonal decor and tie in the other thoughtful touches around the rest of your house. Faux pumpkins, pine cones and berries are a great way to save and avoid a rotting mess later… find some you love and reuse them every year!
Switch out the throw.
The colder weather is all the excuse we need to throw an extra blanket at the foot of the bed. Choose one with your favorite Fall or Winter colors on it: mustard, evergreen, rust, orange, brown, cranberry, wine, and cream are a handful of popular ones this time of year! Try layering it with knits or plaids or faux furs to double the comfort!
Choose new pillows.
Seasonal throw pillows or pillow covers tie any living room or bedroom together. Pillows can give an extra pop of color that aren’t in your basic color scheme. Bonus points for embroidery, patterns, or pictures that show off the spirit of the season!
Look for reusable textiles.
Leafy placemats, a seasonal tablecloth or table runner and some colorful coffee mugs will bring your kitchen and dining room to life and are easy to store away for next year!
Pull together a new tablescape.
Get inspired with all things Thanksgiving and Christmas for exquisite centerpieces at your holiday dinner parties. Layer textures and colors, use colored glass, seasonal napkin rings, unique chargers, and patterned napkins to delight your guests and make mealtime a part of the cozy experience.
Don’t forget the bathroom.
Replace the hand towels in the bathroom with colored or themed towels! This is a sweet touch for your guests and an easy way to round out your thoughtful decor.
