Every change of season is a great excuse and time to look around and edit your spaces to the things that you really love. While people always think of this for the spring, as “Spring Cleaning”, it’s just as important, if not more, in the fall as we all plan to spend more time in our spaces through the holidays and into the winter. Thom Filicia is one of today’s most influential and respected interior and product designers, and he shares some great tips for Fall decor.
Trays and boxes are a great way to keep things organized and quick at hand
Display items that you love together in groups for more of an impact
Layer & Lounge: once you’ve edited your interiors, you can then layer them up a bit to add texture and warmth that transitions them both functionally and aesthetically.
Add a coverlet or duvet to your bed along with a yummy throw
Pillows & throws

Using a rug on a headboard to add an extra layer of texture
Light it Up: as the days get shorter, it’s also important to think about lighting in your interiors.
Use multiple sources of light: table, floor, candles, uprights, task lighting make sure everything is on dimmers.
Bring the Outdoors In:
Even though we can’t be outside, it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be surrounded by natural things. Bring the outdoors in by adding seasonal greenery, branches and leaves to your interiors
