Hello darlings, I’m excited to finally reveal my living room today! This space is one of the last rooms in my house to finally feel finished but I love how it turned out. Our home has a very open floor plan, with high ceilings and large windows, so my living room has always felt so big and open. But this fall I feel like I’ve finally figured out how to make it feel like a cozy intimate space.
Similar to how I change my wardrobe between seasons, I also change my decor depending on the season. I always choose large furniture pieces that are neutral in colour, then play with pillows and accessories as the seasons and trends change. This summer, I filled my living room with tropical inspired pillows and pretty bright colours. But for fall I wanted my space to feel cozy and romantic. A place where you could cuddle up and relax with a warm blanket and a good book.
Thinking of updating your home for fall? Here are my tips for transforming your space from summer to autumn.
1. Add a little fur.
Whether its real or faux, fur adds so much cozy warmth to a space. Don’t be afraid to mix different furs and patterns together. In my space, I combined a natural grey toned pillow along with my Mongolian fur pillows and I love how they look so soft and inviting when layered together.
2. Think outside the box.
When most people think about fall decor, they think about pumpkins and brightly coloured fall foliage. But, instead of taking autumn decor too literally, try thinking about how fall makes you feel. Then incorporate that feeling into how you want your space to feel. By approaching fall decor this way, you will end up with a much more chic and personalized look.
3. Layer in darker tones.
During summer, I mostly stick with soft whites and blush pinks in my living room. But now that fall is arriving, I’m smitten for all the lovely rich colours that are arriving in stores. After doing a little shopping at Urban Barn, I fell in love with these knotted poufs and I decided that deep burgundy would be the perfect accent colour to add into my space.
