Layers of Texture & Faux Fur

"As temperatures begin to drop after a long, hot and humid summer, I can’t help but anticipate the arrival of fall. I love to mix up a few of the decorative items around my clients' homes, as well as my own, as fall is one of my favorite times. An easy way to create a cozier vibe is by changing out throw pillows, adding textural layers such as faux fur, leather and heavier throw blankets, and bringing in a more saturated color palette in both indoor and outdoor spaces. And if you're up for splurging on a few investment pieces, now is a great time to reupholster chairs or small pieces like ottomans for an updated look that can easily transition from season to season," designer Abbe Fenimore explains.

Add Warmth With Fall Hues

Marie Flanigan says, "warm things up — trade in that cheery summer palette for deep autumnal hues, like umber, mahogany and bronze. Toss in weathered woods, richly textured linens, and vibrant seasonal produce for a pastoral warmth that will captivate your heart and home."

Bring the Outside In

"Bring the outside charm in. I love adding natural textures such as cotton, leaves and twigs mixed in with gourds and pumpkins for a soft fall feel. The contrast of a rustic urn or galvanized metal tray will highlight your fall foliage. Add in a preserved boxwood or a green berry ball for a pop of color contrast to highlight the warm tones and your fall feel will last all the way through Thanksgiving," explains Lauren, from Lauren Nicole Designs.

Textured Pillows & Throws

"When I want to cozy up my home for fall I always tend to change out my throws and pillows for chunkier, heavier ones with lots of texture like a chunky knit or faux fur. I also accessorize with 'warmer' feeling trays and accessorize by switching out whites for wood tones," says Lexi from Lexi Grace Designs.
