Seasonal changes beg for a little bit of flair in your home. But when you're working hard at work—and your favorite side hustle—it's tough to carve out time for a major decorating overhaul. Making a few small changes allows you to welcome and celebrate fall without taking your eye off your other goals.
Change your throw blankets and pillows
Changing your throw pillows or the blankets you keep on your couch creates immediate change in your living areas. Fall moods lend themselves to warm ivories, rich marigolds, burnt oranges, and deep reds. At Iva Jewell, we know color lets you express your style, and pillows always feel like a little bit of whimsy and eye candy on the couch—like our Foldover Clutch feels under your arm.
Add fall scents to the air
Scent changes moods. Just think about times you've walked into a friend's house to smell dinner cooking or stop into a neighborhood bakery and smell fresh bread and cookies. Whether you add scents to your home through essential oils, wax burners, or your favorite brand of candles, changing out the scent for fall makes a huge difference in how your home feels. Cozy fall scents range from cinnamon and nutmeg infused scents to ones reminiscent of warm flannel and cloves.
Adding potted succulents around your home makes easy work of any indoor plant life you want to cultivate. Not only do the muted greens complement the rich colors of fall, succulents thrive with minimal care. We know it's not easy to get through your to-do list every day, and succulents don't mind if you miss a watering session or two. If you choose small plants, you can move them around on a whim, gathering them for a quick centerpiece or nesting them next to bookends or on a side table.
Steer clear of holiday-specific decorations
Now, if you obsess over Halloween or adore Thanksgiving, this tip doesn't apply to you! However, if you're looking to decorate once a season and forget about it until winter approaches, keep your fall decor centered around colors and scents that don't focus on a particular holiday. This way, you won't fall into the trap of realizing you haven't changed out your ghost and goblin door wreath well into December!
