4 WAYS TO COZY UP YOUR KITCHEN FOR FALL
Decorating for the chillier fall months means incorporating warm and inviting colors and textures into your home’s interior design, specifically in the kitchen.
Try these four tips to create a cozier kitchen for fall.
 Weave in Dark Textiles
Introduce your kitchen to an autumnal palette using dark, natural window coverings and similar table linens for a cozy effect. This look juxtaposes raw texture with soft details like fresh fruit, warm placemats, and smooth surfaces.
 Bank on Butcher Block
If you’re thinking about switching out your countertop, consider butcher block for a warm, inviting feel. If you don’t want to commit to a full countertop, try a large cutting board or table to add earthiness to your kitchen. Butcher blocks are great for countertops and tabletops because they are durable and look better the longer you have them.
 Add Pops of Color
If your kitchen has a blank space or accent wall, consider painting it for an inviting scene. For the fall season, you can choose to use warmer, darker colors like a deep red, warm orange, or olive or brown tone.
Don’t want to paint an entire wall? Select a piece of art or two featuring deep and rich colors to create a cozy ambiance.
 Nurture Indoor Plants
Plants are particularly useful in the fall because they can double as herb gardens or unique decor. Install a small indoor garden on your window sill or on a shelf near a window to have easy access to fresh rosemary, sage, and basil, even when the weather might not call for gardening.
BOOST YOUR FESTIVE THEME
While these suggestions may seem small, they are great touch-ups to boost your festive theme this fall season. Add one or two, or mix all of the design tips for a home-sweet-home feel.
