Living on the Alabama Gulf Coast means we miss out on the dramatic fall transition of leaves changing color. But that doesn’t have to mean that we can’t experience the beautiful rich hues of the season altogether.
Even if the temperatures outside aren’t exactly fall-like, here are some simple ways to introduce a fall color change in your home!
Towels. Add a dish towel in your kitchen or a small hand towel in your bathroom in solids like oranges, yellows, reds and even deep greens or even similar colors with pumpkins and other seasonal-inspired designs. For an even bigger impact, change out your towel sets!
Sheets. Maybe it’s too soon to put flannel sheets on your bed, but again introducing a rich fall color could be enough to help you transition your mindset to a new season. If that subtle touch isn’t enough, you could add a fall-inspired bedspread to make a bolder statement.
Throws and Pillows. This is another way to amp up the fall vibe in your bedroom, but it’s a nice touch for your living room, especially if you don’t want to make major changes there. Think throw pillows and throws either in the colors of the season or those with seasonal designs.
Centerpieces and Other Decor. If smaller accent colors aren’t enough, but you’re not quite committed to bolder changes, use centerpieces and other decor to make your home feel like fall. This can include flowers, gourds, pumpkins and more!
Candles. Whether you choose small tealights, larger votives or pillars, candles are another simple way to add that elusive fall color. The bonus here is that you can also introduce the scents of the season, such as apple, pumpkin, cinnamon and sandalwood.
Food. Speaking of scents, cooking and baking is another great way to fill your home with the rich colors and delicious smells of fall. Plus, of course, you can eat it too! With so many options, you can be creative, but roasted vegetables, vibrant soups and yummy pies come to mind.
