vintage linens Simple Fall Style- How to Embrace the Changing Season in your Home linen pillow covers

Yikes, it’;s September already! How did?that?happen? But instead of pining for the last season, we are going to fully embrace the coming Fall. Here are some easy ways to transition your home from a cool summer haven to a cozy fall cocoon, whilst still enjoying the last of the sunshine.

September always has a sense of forward-looking energy. It’;s a month of new starts (new schools, new classes, back to workvintage linens, cutting back?the garden) and of drawing the focus inward to the home, rather than the outdoors. Here are some simple, seasonal tips for rearranging what you’;ve already got around the house, as well as ideas for new home comforts you might want to enjoy to welcome in the fall.

Whilst the weather may be turning, there’;s no need to turn your back on the outdoors. Instead, bring it inside. Pick small, carefree posies of whatever you can forage in the garden or neighbourhood, from dahlias to honeysuckle, late-flowering clematis to brambles. Dot these around the house in small jam jars or vintage bottles, as a reminder that there is still a whole lot of outdoors to explore (if you can just drag yourself away from your cozy nest). Pile up windfall apples and freshly picked pears and get inspired to make some hearty crumbles or fruity cakes.

Cool whites and soft greys are beautiful in Summer, but Fall requires more warm colours around the home. Mirror the colours you find in Nature: rich?chocolate browns, greens, muted pinks, plum and black all work well as the seasons shift. There’;s no need for a large-scale?redecoration, just add some linen cushions or wool rugs in these tones.

One of the great pleasures in life is the feeling of safety and snugness that our home can provide. Accentuate the cozy with wool throws and blankets, linen robes and warmer toned bedlinens.

Whilst you might want to swap your lightweight, gauzy curtains for something substantial, there’;s no need to go all-out blackout just yet. Adding linen?curtains that provide warmth and texture, yet still let in some of that beautiful autumn light is a lovely way to embrace the changing season. Candles and fairy lights are also essential elements in creating a cozy?vibe and bringing the light into your home as the evenings draw in.

As we spend more time indoors the amount of time we spend staring at screens can also creep up. Create a space in your home that is free from gadgets, and give yourself a little digital detox at home. The bedroom is the best place for this –; banish laptops and computers, turn phones off and keep them in another room, watch TV in the living room. Keep one place that feels like a retreat and you can more easily cope with the demands of our ever-online lives. You might also sleep better too. Proper hibernation style.
