The fall brings opportunities for a fresh, warmer aesthetic in your beautiful home here at The Montrose apartments in Chicago. Here are a few current ideas from professional interior designers to add seasonal color and interest to living rooms and bedrooms.
Warm Up the Great Room
Add a cozy area rug. Switch out light-colored toss pillows and replace those with some fluffy fall-toned pillows on sofas and chairs, and throw a warm decorative blanket over a furniture arm. Use dark burnt orange and muted yellow, maroon and pale chocolate tones to add a warm, inviting feel. Now you get ready to cozy up in front of the TV or with a good book.
Make a Crafty Pumpkin Display
Create a unique pumpkin display in a corner near your front entry, in your living room, dining room, or on your deck space. Use any one of the countless great designs available online to add painted or glued on decorative patterns on your pumpkins and to mix a few varieties and sizes of beautiful gourds to create a fabulous fall display.
Create Autumn Bedrooms
Change out lightweight linens for warm flannel and tee-shirt sheets in richer fall shades, such as russet, pumpkin, darker gold, or even a subtle seasonal pattern. Dress up the bed with an extra autumn-toned blanket for added warmth and welcoming appeal. Add a vase of fresh fall flowers. Plus, your guests will appreciate bunking in such a well-appointed and cozy room. Get more tips for readying a guest bedroom for company.
Add Cozy Layers
In the same way you add layers to your wardrobe for warmth in the fall, apply this concept to your home. Add cozy cotton, chenille, wool, or even some cashmere throw blankets across sofa, chairs, storage trunks and beds. Though fall colored blankets add to a seasonal theme, blankets of any color contribute ideally to a warmer look.
Add Autumn Table Accents
Fill lanterns or glass containers with candles held in place by acorns, coffee beans, candy corn, or fall shades of decorative pebbles, to quickly create a unique and charming accent piece. Add vases of fresh flowers, bowls of mixed fruit and mixed nuts in shells. Fill a pretty bowl with pine cones, or with fall leaves (loosely packed, standing vertically).
