focus on the best areas to liven up with the seasonal spirit. Find out how you can
have a significant change of scenery in-between seasons with these ways to
transition your home from summer to autumn.
Stow Away Seasonal Items
We all enjoy summer. Even the most die-hard fans of fall love to soak up those
sunbeams. So before you pull any other decorations out for the autumn season,
make sure you hunt down every piece that reminds you of summer. This tip is
beneficial if you’re new to changing up your decor according to the seasons.
Anything brightly colored or associated with summer, pack it away until next year.
Swap Out Scents
There are so many amazing scents that remind us of fall, and you can have them all
in your home with scented candles. Choose anything that reminds you of autumn,
like pumpkin spice, cinnamon, campfire, and even s’mores. These aromas will have
you feeling like bonfires and sweater weather in no time. If you aren’t a fan of
candles, consider using incense or scent sprays to make your home smell like
Add a New Coat of Exterior Paint
If you had to pick any time of year to paint the exterior of your home, fall would be
the best one. The temperatures outside are less humid and a bit cooler than in
summer, so it’s much more comfortable. From neutrals to darker tones, you can
change up your home’s look to get you into the autumn mood. Consult with a local
painting company that can match you with the exterior paint color you want.
Bring in Warm Lighting
As much as we adore the cool weather, shorter days mean we need to add a little
more light inside our home. While the sun brings in natural light during the summer
months, the crisp climate of autumn means many homeowners add heavy curtains to
help trap in heat. Try adding some Christmas lights around a faux plant to add to the
fall vibe you’re searching for.
With fall right around the corner, it’s not too late to start looking at ways to transition
your home from summer to autumn. With these ideas, you’ll be able to transition
your home from one season to the next without a problem. Don’t be afraid to try out
new scents like pumpkin spice and change your home’s exterior paint color.
