Soon the last lazy days of summer will slide into the Fall. Sure in the South, we will still be dealing with some hangover heat, but we look forward to the promise of cooler weather. We also eagerly anticipate retiring our faded summer décor and transitioning into the use of deep, rich colors indicative of Fall. Completed by spicy fragrances, natural elements brought inside and warm lighting, those beautiful bold colors can transform your home into a cozy, welcoming space.
Our home environment should evoke a peaceful, positive retreat that offers both comfort and much-needed privacy for work or just a special place to relax without intrusions. With a little forethought, you can be ready to embrace that exciting change of seasons as our days grow shorter and our evenings longer.
There are so many exciting fall fabrics and linens to consider, pillows, bedding, draperies, bath and kitchen towels, and a whole host of gorgeously rich fall candles and scents to waft throughout your home. Take advantage of fall leaves, acorns and pinecones. Fill trays or bowls with candles, leaves, flowers and string lights to brighten up a corner. Farmers’ markets are great places to find small pumpkins, gourds and crabapples. Table settings are perfect places to show off decorative dishes, placemats, table runners, linens and wood chargers. Centerpieces of multi-size pumpkins, gourds, wheat straw and fairy lights create elegant yet simple focal points.
If you are looking to really transform your space, consider reupholstering your dining room chairs or a sofa that needs a little extra lift. With so many comfortable, durable fabrics available, we are learning to reuse and refresh what we already have and love. At Chandler Interiors Gulf Breeze, we specialize in upholstery items, draperies and bedding, and we are happy to help you choose a fabric and design that would work perfectly in your home.
