Transitioning Your Home for the Fall with Jesse Leigh Vickers
Who doesn’t love decorative pillows, cozy throw blankets, and rugs, rugs, rugs? Textiles are incredible: They are the easiest way to make a space feel brand new without changing everything and dropping a ton of cash. The term textiles isn’t just reserved for throw pillows, blankets and rugs. It also expands to bedding, drapery, and towels. So the next time you are looking for a quick home decor pick me up, consider reviving that tired room with a new influx of fabrics.
Fall/winter decor can take the route of neutral, textural, and layered for a chic, cozy vibe. Or, you could go rich, saturated jewel tones to maintain a pop of color throughout the year if you’re a color fanatic. For the festive, combining plaids and gingham with neutrals can be a cozy approach to winter decor. Make sure that if you plan on bringing in print with your pillows or drapes that you anchor the print with a few solid fabrics as well so that the prints aren’t competing too much.
All in the Details
Don’t forget the details! Cute embellishments like tassels, beading and embroidery can be incorporated for a little pizazz in your textile game. Incorporate some metallic beaded pillows for a festive winter vibe. Fabric choices play a large role in the transition as well. For fall and winter opt for rich handed fabrics like velvets, cable knits, flannels, and furs.
When seasons change the look of your home, you can easily follow suit by swapping out the textiles without breaking the bank.
