3 Easy Ways to ‘Dress Up’ Your Home for Fall

I like making subtle seasonal changes at home. It ensures I don’t get bored and just looks pretty and festive. There are few super easy ways to ‘dress up’ your home for Fall and Thanksgiving fun!

1. Fur

You already know I love fur! Fur is a great way to get those warm ‘fuzzy’ feelings as the cool air arrives. I have these fur pillows on my sofa year round but I switch out my chenille throw for my fur one when the Fall and Winter months come along.

2. Candles

Another favorite of mine that I’ve shared with you! The best thing about candles is that they set the mood you want them to. Wanting some sandalwood or pumpkin scents for the season, light ’em up darling! Then switch them out for a fir or cinnamon scent for the holidays. Whatever your pleasure, it’s a great way to make subtle changes to your home.

3. Florals

Hi, my name is Danai and I have a flower addiction. I LOVE fresh flowers in my home. I don’t normally go with

Bonus Ideas

Wood accents also say Fall to me. We have dark wood furniture pieces, but I like decorating the table with pretty wood pieces as well during the Fall. I enjoy rustic chic.

It’s the little things…

Timeless Luxury: The Langham Hotel Chicago

Every year for the National Association of Realtors, we have an annual conference and this year it was in CHICAGO!!! One of my all. time. favorite cities. Why? Well, what’s not to love?! The best way I can describe it is like a clean, New York but super friendly (I mean, it’s the Midwest after all). Or if New York and DC had a baby, it would be Chicago…I may be reaching but you catch my drift – it’s a big city with an intimate vibe. The Magnificent Mile is…

Fall Cinnamon Maple Whiskey Sour

I’m not a dark liquor drinker, never liked it. However, my hubby enjoys it so I’ve learned a couple recipes that he’s given his stamp of approval. One of them is this cinnamon maple whiskey sour! Certainly anyone can drink this, but I envision it being perfect for cool Fall boys night in, to enjoy watching a game, anytime really. Whiskey, to me, always seems like the ultimate guys drink.
