4 Simple Ways To Refresh Your Bedroom For Fall
The sun is going down a little bit earlier and the temperatures are starting to go down. Our moods change with the seasons so it's time to adjust our bedrooms to match our moods--which requires a little more work than clearing out the kids' toys. Here are 4 simple ways to refresh your bedroom for fall.
It's not quite cool enough to turn on the heat, but nights are getting chilly. To make sure your bed is warm and cozy, you don't have to swap out your summer comforter for a winter comforter. All you need to do is add an extra layer to your bed. A fleece blanket to go between your top sheet and your comforter or quilt gives the top layer of your bedding some weight and holds in your body heat. The extra blanket will make you feel so cozy you're not going to want to get out of bed in the morning.
Tone it Down
Introduce decorative accents to match the season. You don't have to give your bedroom a color overhaul, but adding browns, oranges and grays in the form of throw pillows and blankets give your bedroom a warm and cozy feel. In addition to corresponding with the season, some fall tones can actually change your mood. Pale grays and beige are calming colors, and orange can spark creativity. It's the first room you see in the morning, and its colors can help you start the day off right.
Now that the sunny, humid days are gone, it's time to welcome back scented candles. Let scents of cinnamon and pumpkin perfume your bedroom where open windows once brought in a whiff of summer flowers. Not only do candles make your bedroom smell nice, they may also improve your memory. Scents are powerful memory triggers, and German researchers found a familiar scent before bed helps improve memory performance. Letting pleasant fall odors waft through your bedroom is nice on its own, sharpening your brain is just a perk.
Sheer curtains on the window do little to protect your bedroom from the harsh weather autumn can bring. Trade the sheer panels for darker, heavier curtains to block out the cold and give your bedroom the soft warmth of a winter hideaway. Make the tone and texture of a divan or loveseat more season-friendly with heavy microsuede furniture covers.
Your bedroom doesn't have to be dressed in fall leaf bouquets or have gourds adorning each corner to create a fall mood. A few twists and turns of color can give you the ambience you want without major redecorating. Save the leaves and pumpkins for the dining room table.
