The ultimate season for entertaining is upon us, with cooler temps and rich fall foliage providing a beautiful backdrop for gathering. Whether you’re hosting a football watch party or a five-course meal, ensuring that your home is warm and inviting for your guests is key.
While updating your furniture several times a year is unrealistic, there are plenty of ways to refresh your home seasonally. Fall calls for the coziest of accents, when thick textured blankets, deep-hued fabrics and autumnal scents can cast a welcoming glow on your entertaining spaces.
Updates can be subtle, such as a pair of rustic candle sticks or a pillow with leather trim. New lighting like a cool pendant, chandelier or sleek gold table lamps can transform a room. Don’t forget the walls! Paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to change up your interior design. Sherwin Williams’ 2021 Color of the Year, Urbane Bronze, makes for a beautiful accent wall to set off your seasonal decor.
1. Vintage vinyl
These floor cloths are durable and timeless, not to mention easy to clean! Try these in your kitchen or mudroom to warm up the space.
2. Beautiful lighting
Set the mood with a sleek mid-century, gold tone lamp or opt for a comfortable, distressed farmhouse look.
3. Textured pillows
Fluffy, textural pillows soften a sofa or chair, inviting you to snuggle in.
4. A little leather
Leather adds a masculine touch and weight to your room that everyone will love.
5. Scents of fall
One of the most powerful things you can add to any space is scent. Spice, wood and whiskey scents are perfect this time of the year.
