We tapped into the team from top design firm M. Swabb Decor+ Style to get their professional tips on how to cozy up your home and how to Wow your guests. 

Tip #1: Less is More

Be mindful of how many decorations you add. Not going overboard will effortlessly make your home feel seasonal. Always take one thing away and go for a more subtle touch of fall so that your home may still feel relaxing and uncluttered to you and guests that will gather.

Tip #2: Stick to Neutrals with a Pop of Color

Stick to a more muted fall color pallet, so that any decor added to the existing will cohesively fit in your space. Or pick decor that acts as an accent or pop of color, without overpowering what you already have going on.

Tip #3: Add Texture & Warmth! 

Add texture and warmth through live greenery and darker toned florals. Place garland or arrangements on the hearth of the fireplace or create a tables-cape that you can enjoy all season long
