How to get that Autumn COZY look in no time

Last week I was in the sunny Hainan island, it was a great time to step back and relax from what have been some crazy intense weeks.


But ever since I came back in Shanghai I'm happy as a child on Christmas day; finally it's AUTUMN! I truly can't describe my excitment when I stepped out of the airport (still in a pair of shorts and t-shirt) and found out it was nice and chilly!


If that wasn't clear enough ūüôą Autumn is my favorite season! I love the weather and wearing big oversized knits, and it's the time of the year where I can drink red wine under a blanket, eat chestnuts, and prepare for winter.

Another great joy that the fall season brings me is that our home turns into the coziest nest with just a few simple decor tricks.

SWITCH THE COLOR PALETTE

Time to add some color! Introduce darker earthy hues such as brown, burgundy, camel, and one of my absolute favorites: mustard. (I've been talking about it last year and I'm still in love!) Look for desaturated colors that will give you a warm and cozy feeling and match the outdoors environment.

BLANKETS AND PILLOWS FEST!

Go crazy with blankets, cushions, rugs! Layered rugs are a must for the cold season, especially if you love to sit on the floor surrounded by pillows as I do! Throw some chunky knit blankets on armchairs and sofas. Add layers of cushions in neutral and earthy shades.

FAKE MESSY

Nothing says cozy like a home that looks lived-in. Don't fold perfectly your blankets and throws, just casually lay them on armchairs and the end of the bed. When you're making the bed don't be too perfectionist, leave it there a bit unfinished. Don't line up books and magazines.
Always remember that it is just a matter styling rather than real mess. No worries though, once you master the art or 'fake messy' it will become much more natural and will take you very little time and effort.

FALL PRODUCE AND FLORALS

What's a better way to decorate than bringing in what this season has to offer? Ditch the fresh cut flowers an go with branches and greenery that will last for months, such as cotton branches, thistle, beautiful maple leaves, eucalyptus (when dried it stays green and slightly aromatic). Fruits and veggies can double up as excellent (and cheap!!) decor items.  Some of them (pumpkins, corn cobs, pomegranate, etc.) take a much longer time to spoil so you don't have to worry too much. If you want to go a little fancy you can spray them with gold or copper paint.

LIGHT IT UP

Good lighting is always key to a well-designed environment. Lanterns and candles are great for creating that warm and cozy mood, but also table lamps and floor lamps. Avoid big bright lights, and stay away from cold fluorescent or LED lights. When you're buying lamp bulbs check the light temperature, if you want a nice warm white you need to get something that is about 3000K and BELOW (the lower the temperature, the warmer the light)
