6 Ways To Give Your Home A Fall Makeover
In the spring, people everywhere clean their home from top to bottom. Sometimes, they apply a fresh coat of paint, and it is common to incorporate in a few new brightly colored décor pieces for a more cheerful feel. Why isn't this done in the fall? If you are like most, you spend significantly more time inside the home during fall and winter, so it only makes sense to give it a quick makeover, so you can get cozy and hibernate the next few months.
Freestanding Fireplaces - The great thing about bio ethanol freestanding fireplaces is you can enjoy them inside all winter, and then you can carry them out to the patio to stay warm on those cool spring and summer evenings. Bio ethanol is a clean burning fuel source that does not create smoke or release fumes into the air, making them safe for you and the environment. Freestanding fireplaces also come in handy when you lose power on those cold winter nights. Some heat is better than no heat!
Paint - There is no reason why you can't paint that lime green or turquoise accent wall a brick red or plum color for half the year. In the spring, paint it back the color it is now.
Blankets - It is time to dig out the throw blankets or perhaps purchase a few new ones. Aim to have blankets that are made of a variety of materials, colors, and patterns, so they will create depth in the room.
Pillows - If you do change the paint color in the living room, bedroom, etc., then you will want new decorative pillows to match. Of course, you can just buy or make pillow covers, too.
Plates - If you do a lot of entertaining, you might want to consider a set of plates, bowls, etc., that represent fall. Artisanal-looking plates in an olive green or deep burgundy color will be great.
Centerpieces - You can buy fall centerpieces, but you can also make them from odds and ends that you get from the craft store. Plus, you have natural elements to include, such as gourds and pine cones. Even freshly fallen leaves can be used. A bowl of ripe apples will even work for a last minute centerpiece.
If you are changing your color scheme for fall, a few hot shades to consider include butternut orange, pale yellow, deep crimson, chocolate brown, gold, rich red, olive green, burnt orange, and earthy red.
