When to start decorating for fall and embrace the new season

When is too early to decorate for fall? As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, we begin spending more time indoors as fall arrives. This cozy season is all about spending quality time with family,  whether that’s cuddled up on the couch in front of a film or enjoying a home-cooked meal. As such, it’s important our homes look and feel the part, offering the warmth and comfort we associate with this latter part of the year. 

Knowing when to commit to decorating for fall isn’t easy – the weather has a mind of its own and the chance of an Indian summer is never out of the question. However, late August is the perfect time to gradually start preparing for the cooler months. Summer cushions, bedspreads and decor can go into storage and slowly be replaced with hand-knitted blankets, thicker duvets and more wintery accessories.
