Layering comes to mind when I think of transforming my home for fall and winter. Cooler climates, fall colors and shorter days bring us home a little earlier than other seasons and these factors all play a part in transforming our living spaces into warm and cozy environments that welcome and rejuvenate our senses.

Behind every great transformation is an existing foundation of design elements that must be honored to achieve the best results. The color scheme, flooring, fabrics and furnishings, lighting and accessories provide the tips you need for making the best decisions for transforming your space for fall and winter.

Color Choose accent pieces and accessories that complement your furnishings while introducing warmth. A heavier throw for the sofa or chair; pillows that invite comfort.

Flooring Incorporating area rugs, thicker carpets not only add visual interest but also adds warmth that invite playful moments (including naps) when relaxing.

Furnishings Create focal points with furnishings like a sectional sofa that invite you to relax and cozy up with a good book or movie. Re-arrange your floor plan if you have to in order to define the space.

Lighting Create a subdued, relaxed mood with appropriate lighting. Create lighting zones for specific tasks. Incorporate dimmers for mood and entertaining. A good lighting plan to fit your lifestyle can be created especially with smart home and LED offerings today. (Refer to first image)
