My favorite season is fall. It use to be summer when I was little but the older I get the more I fall in love with everything about the fall season. I love the cooler temperatures, the leaves changing, the smell of apple cider warming up in the slow cooker and of course spending time outside with loved ones and a glass of wine.
I decided I should turn my summer focused balcony into a fall/ winter oasis. While doing so I came up with a few tips for you guys in case you want to transform your outdoor space for the fall and winter season.
- MIX PATTERNS & TEXTURES
At first I wasn’t sure about mixing an aztec pillow with faux fur AND on top of it a bold print for my chair cushion. I usually stay safe with patterns but I decided to spice it up and I just love it.
2. ADD GOLD OR SILVER ACCENTS
Gold and silver are both very festive colors and make me think about Thanksgiving and Christmas! I found this adorable black and gold table from Athome stores and also this candle and thought they would make a nice festive & modern touch to the balcony.
3. ADD BLANKETS
I added some cozy faux fur throws and rolled them up into this cute basket for guests to snuggle up with
4. LIGHT IT UP!
I added hanging lights on the railing, lanterns and candles. The added light makes for a cozy and inviting ambiance.
5. THROW DOWN A RUG ( Plus A Cute Dog Doesn’t Hurt)
Not sure who loves this rug more.. us or Winnie! I also found this rug at Athome stores and it really brought the entire look together. Don’t be afraid to play with patterns!
