I want to try to add an idea for home decorating each Saturday. This week I want to focus on making quick changes to any room for the Fall season. No matter what color palette you have in your rooms, there are coordinating tones for each season that can be changed. Fall in particular has a wonderful range of hues that can be used to change the mood of your decor to warm and welcome your friends and family in from the outdoors during this wonderful time of year. Change out lighter summer throws for ones that are a little heavier. Lap blankets are great in family rooms especially during football season. Use candles or room scents that reflect the season. Scents that are spicy, woodsy or those that have a hint of musk notes add to a cozy ambience rather than the floral and fruit fragrances used in the Summer months. I have one son that loves Sandlewood and Patchouli, these are examples of woodsy fragrances and Apple Pie, Cinnamon, Clove or Allspice are great examples of the spicy scents. Bring in touches of fall flowers to any room with wreaths on doors or over fireplace mantles and also with arrangements for tabletops.
Until Next Time, Stay Cozy,

Welcome to my little corner of the world. This is where I come to post about my little Cozy Cottage in WV and about life as a work at home mom. I am a 40-something veteran mom and interior designer who has recently been bitten by the sewing-bug after not sewing for some 20 years. Stop by from time to time to see what is new. I will try to get some pictures of my home and some of my projects up soon. Be patient with me, however, sometimes technology gets the best of me.
