Tips To Help Your Lubbock Apartment Stand Out This Fall

As the month of September ends, Starbucks will bring back the Pumpkin Spice Latte, the air will get cooler, and the day will get shorter. Everybody had a fun and sunny summer, but we’re all ready to hunker down for the fall season. But before you can curl up for toasty nights at home, you’ve got to get your home transitioned from summer vibes to autumn vibes.

Embrace autumn tones.

An inexpensive way to transition your apartment from summer to fall is by switching out living room and kitchen textiles to autumn hues. Throw pillows can be purchased for cheap prices at any major home retailer, and they instantly change the vibe of your apartment. Also, floor mats, hand towels, and curtains can be switched out to add an instant injection of autumn spirit to your home.

Bring in new scents.

You’ll feel like it’s fall when your apartment smells like fall. Buy some great fall scented candles, or Scentsy packs to create a warm, holiday feels to your home. Speaking of fall, it’s the season where cooking matters the most. Not exactly a decorating tip, but baked goods and spiced stews will take your fall apartment decorating to the next level.

More mood lighting.

We all love a cozy glow, especially when it’s chilly outside. So, when it comes to decorating for fall, a few lighting changes go a long way. Use soft light bulbs in lamps, and consider switching out lighter lampshades to darker ones.

Bring the outside in.

There are two ways to bring the outdoors in, and neither is the wrong way. Either collect twigs, leaves, pinecones and pumpkins from outdoors or go buy imitation ones at your craft store. For an even more vogue look, spray paint pumpkins and squash white or gold. Either way, these natural touches will turn your fall decor up a notch.

Add the coziness factor.

To achieve the “coziness” factor, you have to fill your apartment with things that you love: soft blankets, favorite books, loved playlist, fuzzy socks, tasty treats, and hot drinks. Definitely “treat yo self” to all your favorite things for relaxing nights at home.
