FALL TRANSITION

Jenny, her husband, Dave, son Zack and pet pug Buzz live in the Midwest, in a two-bedroom, two-bath cottage built in the early 1950s. She enjoys seasonal decorating and has found easy and economical ways to express her fondness for fall. “I dress our home seasonally, but it’s done with simple swaps,” she says. The word that comes to Jenny’s mind for making the transition to her home’s fall décor is cozy. “Fall is the time to bring on the cozy with layers of pillows, blankets, candles and pumpkins,” she says. “Cooler blues and whites for summer are replaced with warmer colors in pieces like pillows and throws. In the summer, I remove excess pillows and throws, but fall is about bringing them back. I also love bringing in touches of copper to showcase flowers or corral dishtowels. Swapping out summer nautical art for more rustic pieces is another easy way to give a nod to fall. And, of course, both real and artificial pumpkins are brought in.”
