Hello everyone and happy Wednesday! Who else is loving this fall weather!?!? There is nothing better than slouchy sweaters, leather riding boots, PSL’s and cozying up next to the fire with a good book. Although Cleveland weather can be completely brutal, we are so lucky that we live in a place where we can experience fall. On this week’s Wednesdays with Wendy, Wendy is giving us some pointers on how to….
You can still have beautiful AND comfortable pieces in your home. We, at W Design, pride ourselves in creating spaces that are functional and elegant. Furniture is meant to be sat on. If a piece looks too uncomfortable or unapproachable, then it is not practical. Lush sofa accessories like fluffy fur pillows, cashmere and alpaca throw blankets, and chenille blend throw pillows scream comfort. An easy trick to cozy up your living room is to swap out your coffee table for an oversized, tufted fabric ottoman- there’s no better place to kick your feet up!
It’s time to light up those fireplaces! After months of no use, your fireplace is probably feeling some major neglect. Place throw pillows around your fireplace or near the hearth to invite family and friends to lounge fireside. Decorative elements like a rod-iron log holder, fireplace screens, picks, and old parchment paper in a wooden basket makes your fireplace a staple item.
If the crisp autumn air gets too chilly, head indoors and play some games. Bring out the chess boards and dust off some old books to put out for family and friends to enjoy. Turn off your overhead lights and warm up your space with dimly lit candles. Fall is a great time to bring in some of your heavier pieces like a wool rug or antique trunk. Add some fall love to your space with decorations like pumpkins, gords, and indian corn. This makes a space feel homey- and there’s nothing more cozy than home!
