If you peek outside, you know the “wet coast” is already happening. After a beautiful extended summer, we are now looking at months of shorter days, autumn leaves stuck to our galoshes and gentle upward nudges on the thermostat.
Here are some easy ways you can prepare your home for a clutter-free Fall filled with simple pleasures.
Most homes don’t have a large entranceway or hall closet, and if they do, they are very easily overwhelmed by all the coats and shoes. The easiest way to create space is to pack up all your summer gear. Chances are you won’t be wearing those cute flip-flops for the next few months. Pull out all the light coats, beach supplies and fun flats and you will have much more room for the bulky cold-weather gear.
The easiest way to create a Fall feeling in your home is through aroma. With just a few items from your pantry, you can create an all-natural ambience that will float through your whole home.
While you are digging out the cinnamon sticks, take a few moments and go through your spices. Are they still fresh? Make a note of the ones that have long since expired and re-stock. Having delicious fall flavours at your fingertips will help make late-night meals taste even better.
When the weather is frightful, there is nothing better than getting cozy on the couch. Pull out all your soft and over-sized blankets from the closets and drape them on your bed and living room furniture for easy snuggling access. Here are some of our favourites.
The best way to drift off to la-la land at night is a cozy set of sheets. Now would be the time to swap out your summer linens for a beautifully luxurious pair of warm sheets. When bedtime calls, your slumber will be even sweeter.
