All the Leaves are Brown

Crisp air.  Cable knit sweaters.  Skinny jeans.  Boots.  They all point my absolute favorite season!  Fall!   Not everyone shares my sentiments, though.  Here are a few suggestions on how to ready yourself & your home for the cooler temps without adorning the front stoop in scarecrows & pumpkins.
  1. Swap out your lightweight cotton throws with those made of a heavier a material.  Great replacements are crocheted or lambswool.  Both visually signal warmth and comfort- things we all desire as the weather turns cool.
  2. Exchange brightly colored candles for earth-tones.  Another subtle signal that compliments the changes outside. 
  3. Update your front porch.  Potted mum or a gorgeous arrangement to hang on the front door allow your house to blend well with the landscape. 
If  you typically grumble at the thought of summer’s end.  Try these simple changes to see if they make the transition to fall any easier on you.
Happy Fall!
