Don't let the fall months get you down - work with them to your benefit. When you start bringing the autumn months indoors the warming colors can help you relax and unwind. Orange, brown, purple, green and red are some of the fall colors that will help to create a warm and cozy atmosphere in your home.
Put together a flower arrangement
A fall arrangement can bring some charm into your home. You can make your own by taking a hike along one of the many paths here in Calgary and collecting wildflowers, crisp autumn leaves, pine cones and cattails. If that seems like too much work you can also look for pre-made arrangements for sale featuring warm autumn colors.
Make your home smell just like fall
You can purchase aromatic candles that smell just like pumpkins cooking or apple pie baking in the oven. There are also room sprays that are designed to smell like the fall months that you can purchase at various bath and beauty shops.
Grab some blankets and cozy up
Now's a great time to purchase some new throws and blankets for your living room and bedroom. It's time to layer up your bed and have some warm comfortable blankets available for those times when you want to sip hot chocolate and watch a movie in the comfort of your living room underneath a decorative warm throw. Remember to keep the fall colors in mind when purchasing your selections to add an extra sense of warmth.
You can put together a wonderful centerpiece for your kitchen table by visiting an arts and crafts store and looking at their fall selection. It's easy to add decorative accents in an autumn theme at this type of year by visiting your grocery store as well. Pick up some dried autumn Indian corn, gourds and ripe red apples to adorn your kitchen.
Don't fight back against the fall - work with it. It's a wonderful time to decorate your home with warm colors and to appreciate the beauty of nature that comes to us for just a few months every year.
