Cozy Fall Room Makeover

Anybody else find themselves itching to give refresh their decor when the seasons switch? There’s something about cozying up your space that really makes the start of fall feel official!

Check out how we gave a bedroom a mini-makeover to take it from summer to autumn in a few minute flat, and check out our tips for turning your space into a fall-tastic escape…

Summer to Fall Bedroom Mini-Makeover

Our top tip for transitioning your abode from August to autumn? Adjust and simplify your color palette! Our summertime room was a riot of bright, bold colors. For fall, you want to temper that and tone it down a bit.

Transition bright shades of pink, red, green, orange, blue, and purple to more muted greens and greys, replacing decor like the bright pink crystal and vivid floral print with with a bit of moss and darker-hued prints.

Now is also the time to swap out nautical knickknacks, like seashells, coral, and rope lights, and in their place add earthier items, like jade, arrows, antler sheds, and sage. In our room, we also removed the tapestry from the shelf on the night stand to reveal the natural wood for some extra rustic appeal!

Bedding makes a big impact, so don’t forget it! Hot tip: Bedspreads often have a simpler or solid color on their reverse side, so flipping your quilt over can give you a new look in a snap — plus, it costs nada. Casually drape a blanket at the foot of your bed, and layer on a faux alpaca rug (yes, a rug on the bed — clean it first, obvs) to bump up your cozy factor big time, and add layers of lush texture.
