With all the wet weather we've had in the past few weeks, it looks like autumn is getting ready to make an appearance, and now's a great time to think about restyling your home for the colder months to come. There's three main areas to focus on, and today we're looking at all three.
The Living Room
This is where you spend most of your time at home, so it makes sense that you'll want it to be comfy when the weather starts to chill.
Consider adding simple sheets with warm, earthy tones (such as maroon, mocha, or saffron) to drape over a chairs or furniture. Not only can they change the feel of a room, they can be used to keep you warm on a winter's night.
The kitchen is often considered the heart of a home, and in autumn you can reflect this by adding new, heavier curtains, changing to a new style of cutlery and crockery, or even just adding a centrepiece to a table. The centrepiece doesn’t have to be fancy, it can be a DIY project with local plants and knickknacks, and can really add a personal touch to an area.
There's nothing better than a long sleep in on a cold morning, so you'll definitely want your bedroom to be up to the task. Heavy blankets and sheets seem like the obvious choice, but little touches, such as a small throw rug to keep your feet from touching cold tiles or hardwood floors, or even just a soft-tone lamp to create a cosy atmosphere, can work wonders.
Though we're lucky in Queensland to never get too cold, there's definitely a bit of a chill coming. Of course, you can always get inspiration from any one of the dozens of open home inspections we host each week, so make sure you check out our properties to see what you like.
