We put away our pool accessories and all related items we so used and needed for the summer and search out our flannel sheets, crockpots and winter sweaters to clean for the months ahead.
Making the transition from summer to fall can be quite easy when you prepare in advance. Just as you store away your summertime luxuries for a cold winter season you can store away some fall decor items to bring out on a whim. Make a list of items that you may need to cozy up your rooms. The key is to purchase items that will make the most contribution without breaking the bank. Warm comforter sets, seasonal dinnerware, earthenware, table lenins and baskets. Think essentials that you will use everyday. New throw pillows for the sofa and chairs in nice earth tones. Pottery to hold this seasons bounty of fruits and vegetables. Baskets for kindling and pinecones. Candles and wool throws. All of these items can easily be stored when spring rolls around. By nature we need these comforts and they truely make a difference in how we feel in our rooms during the cold blustery beautiful season of fall.
An instant make-over is to purchase a sofa cover in a soft color for fall. This will change the entire ambience of your space. You may wish to purchase a set of new drapes or valances just for the fall/winter months that can be easily removed for spring/summer.
Make a list. Bring out what you have had stored and spruce up your interiors for this glorious season. You will surely find that the transition is much smoother and you will actually look forward to the change.
