FALL IS UPON US
Start by taking down all summery linens and drapes. Wash them and put them away for the spring. Replace them with heavier weight fabrics with texture and richer colors ( i.e. waffle knit, heavy cotton, velvet, suede). Go out and find throw pillows in those same great rich, heavy textured fabrics. Add a yummy, warm knit throw blanket to your sofa or comfy reading chair (i.e. faux fur, cable knit, soft wool, fuzzy cotton). Buy some wonderful scented candles in fragrances that warm your soul (i.e. vanilla, spice, baked cookies). If you don't have throw rugs try putting down a rug to add warmth to a hallway or room. Throw some pinecones in a clear bowl, red apples in a tall vase or find some great fall foliage/botanicals to add to a fun container (vase,basket,bucket,wooden toolbox).
Now when you return from your harrowing, hectic day you can come home and feel like you're wrapping yourself in a favorite cozy sweater.
