The Autumn season is upon us again: the chillier nights and crisp mornings; brilliant shades of oranges, reds, yellows and browns that canopy our tree-lined streets. October is a month overflowing with change, beloved and championed by so many because of this very distinction- October is truly a month of seasonal transition. It is always this time of year when we also think of getting cozy and our “nesting” instincts take over. And, nothing says cozy nesting like settling into great furniture like this Hancock & Moore City Loveseat. Rich leather textures and Fall colors set the stage for this room-anchoring piece that makes a statement the whole year through. Yes, where home decor and nesting are concerned, October and Halloween provides a myriad of opportunities for you to warm your home decor with textures, colors, and furnishings that speak to this thematic season!
Did you know wicker is a classic texture of Fall? Take a look at the Reflections Rocker by Lloyd Flanders. It features rich, cloth fabric woven over a supportive wicker frame in a simple and elegant pattern. You will have excellent viewing accommodations for the parade of trick-or-treaters coming to your home! Imagine having this comfortable post, a bowl of candy in hand, on your front porch to wait for the neighborhood ghouls and goblins as they exclaim “Trick or treat!”
Coming inside from these increasingly colder evenings, one will want to find a warm and inviting home to settle in for the Autumn weather. Working with a wide palette of warm, and seasonal colors, as well as black and white, one can craft an entire house full of ambience that subtly adds to the season’s spirit without feeling like you live in “Halloweentown”. Incorporating vintage antiques for a bit of personality, using natural materials–particularly flora like branches and gourds–and curating the right furniture will help revitalize the rooms around your home. Take a look at the Stickley Highlands Collection as the dark wood hughes, and classic mission styling is the very essence of warm and cozy nesting.
Preparing for Fall could be as simple as changing out a conventional chair with one that swivels or rocks. Another rocking chair that would help add these natural and warm-colored elements is the Harvey Ellis Rocker from Stickley. With a stunning hand-carved inlay of fine oak, the craftsmanship of Stickley excels here in preserving the grain and patterning of the natural wood, while the deep maroon cushion provides ample support and warm tones for days, perfect for the brisk fall mornings in front of the fire.
