The Perfect Autumn Home
Fall is officially in full swing in Colorado, and there’s no better time to get your home in the spirit of the season! No matter your home space, the Autumn season is the perfect time to welcome in a transition to your home, as we get ready for a cozy winter.
Expanding Living Space
As we know so well, Fall in Colorado is breathtaking. Filled with vibrant foliage, crisp mountain air, and the anticipation of cozy moments indoors, it’s the perfect time to transform your home into a warm and inviting space that complements the natural beauty outside. Whether you live in the heart of Denver, nestled in the Rockies, or anywhere in between, here are some tips on how to decorate and remodel your home for fall in Colorado.
Decorate with Warmer Color-Palettes
Embrace the rich, warm colors of fall by updating your home’s color palette. Consider painting an accent wall in shades of deep red, burnt orange, or earthy brown. Incorporate these hues into your decor with throw pillows, area rugs, and drapery to create a cozy, autumnal ambiance.
Opt for Natural Materials
Incorporate natural materials that echo the Colorado landscape. Opt for hardwood floors, stone countertops, and wooden furniture. Add warmth and texture with wool or fur throws and blankets. These materials not only enhance your home’s aesthetic but also provide insulation during the cooler months.
Make the Fireplace a Focal Point
If your home already has a fireplace, make it the focal point of your living space. Arrange comfortable seating around it, and adorn the mantle with fall-inspired decor such as pumpkins, gourds, and candles. If you don’t have a fireplace, consider installing a gas or electric one to enjoy the comforting glow and warmth of a fire.
Add a Rustic Touch
Embrace the rustic charm of Colorado by incorporating elements like distressed wood, antler decor, and vintage furniture. Reclaimed wood shelving, barn doors, and exposed beams can add character to your home and evoke a cozy mountain lodge vibe.
Bring the outdoors inside with fresh fall foliage. Arrange bouquets of locally sourced flowers like sunflowers, daisies, and asters in vases throughout your home. Decorate your entryway with a festive fall wreath made from colorful leaves, pinecones, and twigs.
Try out Layered Textiles
Colorado weather can be unpredictable in the fall, so be prepared with layered textiles. Add warmth and comfort to your home with plush area rugs, heavy curtains, and throw blankets. Opt for flannel or fleece bedding to keep warm during chilly nights.
Embrace Seasonal Decor
Incorporate seasonal decor to celebrate fall holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. This is a great way to make decorating your home fun for kids and the whole family! Let your home decorating efforts become bonding time by carve pumpkins, decorate with spooky or harvest-themed accents, and set a festive table for gatherings with friends and family. Your family will surely enjoy the outcome of their decoration efforts in your cozy home together!
