SIX TIPS FOR THE SEA­SON

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside -

1

Make use of nat­u­ral el­e­ments, such as wood or leaves, or even items gen­er­ally found out­side, such as me­tal tools, to bring an el­e­ment of the out­doors in.

2

Soften nat­u­ral and out­door el­e­ments with plush decor, pil­lows and blan­kets. Look for tra­di­tional fall colors or tra­di­tion­ally hard ob­jects turned soft (like a stuffed pump­kin pil­low).

3

Use clas­sic wo­ven bas­kets to hold pump­kins, gourds, flow­ers and wood, or get cre­ative— al­most any­thing can be turned into a ves­sel, and the more un­usual the com­bi­na­tion, the stronger the con­ver­sa­tion piece.

4

Think about mov­ing chairs, so­fas and beds—even tem­po­rar­ily—closer to win­dows for a front-row view of the chang­ing sea­son. Don’t for­get to pile on ex­tra pil­lows and a col­or­ful quilt.

5

Frame win­dows in fall beauty. Twist faux bit­ter­sweet vines around your cur­tain pan­els as nat­u­ral tiebacks, or hang col­or­ful fall leaves from rib­bons in front of your win­dow­panes.

6

Don’t for­get the power of fra­grance! Fall has a dis­tinct scent, con­jur­ing cozy im­ages of au­tumns past. Light a scented can­dle, sim­mer a spicy mix, or bake some­thing yummy for the com­plete sea­sonal feel.
