Bringing Fall Indoors
Seasons come with their own moods and vibes, and I enjoy fully embracing them! Summer's almost gone and as sad as that is, I'm looking forward to cozier times. Fall always feels comfy, intimate, warm and cozy, maybe even a little mystical. To transition your home from summer to fall try a few of these tricks.
Bring the blankets out: Extra quilts on the bed, another throw on the couch, a few blankets folded up in the living room just to have at hand. Cuddling up with a quilt on a chilly evening is such a great feeling.
Light more Candles: Waking up on a crisp fall morning by lighting a few candles just sounds right. End your evening with even more candles. Bring the warmth in, quite literally.
More Books: In the Summer I love having a few easy beach reads, but spending more time indoors, I feel like I can handle a more thought provoking book. I've been enjoying Mrs. Dalloway, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and Never Let me Go.
Stove top Simmers: They're like the new, better smelling potpourii. To create one, add some water in a small pot, plop in a drop or two of vanilla, some citrus peel, a cinnamon stick and warm it all on the stove. Just don't let the water disappear. Been there, done that, it doesn't smell so great. Rosemary smells amazing too! Try this recipe from Good Life of Design!
