There is nothing quite like walking into a home that feels both warm and inviting, filled with memorabilia from the past that’s been collected through generations. A wood burning stove, grandmothers precious china, cozy quilted blankets, an antique hutch, rustic and timeless décor that mark the beauty of a well loved home. And today, we are thrilled to announce a new collection by Chesapeake, Countryside, filled with both warmth and style and that uses traditional Americana inspired designs in a fresh and modern way. Beautiful borders, time-worn textures, floral trails and vintage designs blend with gingham and patchwork prints, country chic damasks and more for a selection of wallpapers that mix the old with the new and provide you with a wonderful starting point to creating a memorable home that will be enjoyed for many years to come.
If you’ve ever experienced New England in the Fall, you know the vibrant beauty that seems to suddenly appear out of nowhere, transforming busy highways and cottages by the sea into picturesque scenes of color. From gold toned leaves to the comfort of a fireplace to crisp cool nights spent in cozy sweaters, these are the things that make Autumn one of our favorite seasons. So why not invite some of the warmth and magic of the harvest season into your own home? With autumnal colors and natural accents, to decorative pumpkins and more, adding a touch of fall flavor to décor is very simple to achieve.
Bring Nature Indoors
The heart of Autumn decorating stems from the beauty of nature. From pine cones and berries to acorns, pumpkins and leaves, creating a gorgeous wreath or a rustic centerpiece out of natural details is an easy and stylish fall addition.
Layering your room in a variety of cozy throws and blankets adds both warmth and texture to décor, fashioning a comfortable fall escape for you to enjoy on those chilly days and nights.
It’s not about the plain orange pumpkins anymore! Painted and glittered, golden and shiny, pumpkins have come a long way and can be both a chic and stylish fall accessory to home décor.
Shades of Autumn
Rich browns, brick reds, burnt oranges and golden yellows all lend their part in creating an Autumn inspired atmosphere. Decorative pillows or kitchen linens are a great way to add in unexpected pops of these toasty shades.
As the season transitions to Winter, we want to make sure our homes are warm and welcoming. Adding cozy touches to your decor will bring an inviting ambiance, one that encourages you and your guests to relax. Here are a few tips to add comfortable and luxurious details to life in your home.
Your home is definitely a place where you want to create a sense of warmth! It should be a sanctuary and a place of rest where you can reset after a long day. To cultivate a cozy space, adding ample pillows and extra blankets is essential. Switching sheer curtains for more heavy-weight fabrics in colder months adds privacy while keeping heat in, and the warm look of the texture subconsciously adds to the sense of warmth. Bringing in a small sofa, upholstered ottoman or overstuffed chair also brings a more intimate and comfortable aura to the space. Adding area rugs and even layering rugs warms up chilly feet and creates a visually pleasing comfort in any room. Lighting is one of the most fundamental ways to set a cozy and inviting home. Rely on a combination of ambient lamps, candles and the flickering glow of a fireplace whenever possible rather that using overhead lighting. If chandeliers and overheads are the only option, try adding dimmers or replacing bulbs with low wattage energy savers. Finally, adding symbolic accents can transform a space into an inviting haven. Displaying a stack of books or a teapot on a tray lends a sense that the room is meant to be relaxed in and enjoyed. And, even if your fireplace is not a “working fireplace” you can fill it with logs, or add candles to enhance it’s warm presence in the room.
