3 Ways To Warm Up Your Home This Fall.

warm fall leavesIf you’re like me, you love the fall season. Crisp mornings, beautiful color, what’s not to love! Even in sunny, southern California we’ve been waking up to chilly mornings and having cool temperatures throughout the day. It’s the time of year that makes you want to wear comfy sweaters and boots and enjoy the cool outdoors.   It’s also the perfect time to bring those rich colors and textures inside to warm up your home while the outdoor temperatures drop.

Three easy ways to warm up your home.

#1.  Bring in the color:  Think deep russets, mellow oranges, soft yellows and rich browns.  Get your inspiration from nature.

#2.  Add in the texture with throw blankets and pillows:  Soft nubby knits or faux furs make the best warm and cozy additions.
