The summer season is winding down, and the tree leaves are finally starting to fall. Autumn is the coziest season of the year, and it’s the perfect time to refresh your home. You might want to gather a few more blankets and candles or build your very own hot chocolate station. It’s the season of hygiene, and it’s time to get your home ready for autumn.
Make your home warmer
Hygge is a Danish concept that refers to finding comfort and warmth in the simple things. A cosy evening and pumpkin spiced latte might be your idea of heaven. Hygge is all about feeling content with the little things in your life.
As the evenings get darker, most of us start spending a lot more time at home. You need to make your home both physically and mentally warmer. A rug on hardwood floors will keep your feet warm, and a few candles can help to create a zen atmosphere. You can come home at the end of a long day to a relaxing and comforting space.
Clear away clutter
A cosy space can also be minimal and stylish. Go through the small trinkets and soft furnishings in each room of your home. Store any summery items away and replace them with some autumnal alternatives. In the autumn season, make the most out of warmer tones, like auburn, mustard and burgundy.
Some fitted wardrobes in the bedroom can reduce clutter and allow more room for chunky blankets and cushions. Reorganise your home now, so it looks fabulous throughout the festive season.
Make way for a shoe rack
The wet autumn weather can often lead to mud and leaves all over your home. You need to start taking your shoes off at the front door and storing them in a shoe rack. You can keep your wellies, autumn boots and trainers in one place. You could add a few autumnal flowers to the front hallway to make it a little more festive.
Make the most of daylight
Position a chair near your favourite window and enjoy an afternoon break reading there. You could curl up with a spiced pumpkin latte and watch the colourful leaves falling. It’s important to get a little bit of daylight every day to keep your mood up in the colder seasons.
Make your home the ultimate autumnal oasis for you and your family this year.
