Great Fall Additions to Your Home

With fall here, it is as if the sun is starting to fall much sooner every day and temperatures begin their annual decline. You might even find yourself spending a lot more time indoors. If you are going to spend most of that time with your family in a communal space like your living room, it is a good idea to give this space a makeover to reflect some of the festive spirit of the season. After all, family time is precious, and you’ll want to make the best of the time that the fall season gifts you by transforming your home into the cozy, inviting place that makes this season memorable for everyone in your home.

Top 3 Ideas to Liven Up Your Living Room for Autumn

Here are the top 3 autumn décor ideas for your living room!

  1. Warm the Room with Style – Days in fall can sometimes get quite nippy. If you sense a rather chilly night coming along, and your home is equipped with an indoor fireplace, plan a family night around the fire. And not just any fire, go for a colorful one! Just imagine how your kids might react to seeing flames of green, red, white and more that paint your living room with beautiful autumn like hues. All you need are specialty fire logs or color changing fire pinecones and you are set! You can also make these pinecones at home using boric acid. Just sprinkle the powder on your dry pinecones before throwing them in the fire.

  3. Cozy Up Your Den – Swap your usual cotton cushion covers for luxurious fabrics like velvet to cozy up your room in a jiffy. You don’t have to limit yourself to cushions. From getting heavy drapes to snugly sofa shrugs or throw blankets, the choices are limitless. Opt for heavy fabrics in rich, deep colors to immediately give your living room a warm and inviting feel. These heavy fabrics don’t just look good; they actually help insulate the rooms from cool drafts during the fall and winter seasons.
  4. Hot Chocolate – Nothing makes a room feel cozy and ready for the fall season quite as much as a steaming cup of chocolate does! What’s more, there are so many different recipes and modifications out there to make this fall classic perfect for your family! If you thought hot chocolates are all about mixing drinking chocolate with milk, think again. From topping the drink off with marshmallows to adding spices like nutmeg, cinnamon sticks and even chili powder to making peppermint and white chocolate infused drinks, the internet is full of ideas for you to bring back into your home, this fall.

Using these easy yet wonderful ideas as your guide, there is no excuse for not giving your home an autumn makeover this year.
