Autumn is the season for cozy sweaters, evenings around the fireplace and pumpkin-spice everything. Are you ready to put summer to rest and welcome the new fall breeze? The season is upon us, so now is the perfect time to swap out your summer decor and give your home an easy, autumnal makeover.

Hand Towels: Put away your summer colors and introduce hand towels in rich fall tones like gold and burgundy, navy or chocolate.

Soap: Hand soaps and dish soaps are an easy way to appreciate fall’s best aromas. Pick soaps with notes of apple and cinnamon or woodsy scents like pine and palo santo.

Everyday Dishware: Now would be the perfect time to set your table with deeply hued dishes and platters. Think dark wood, or try porcelain in colors like cappuccino, espresso and mustard. Let gold-leaf napkin holders have a moment on your tablescape, too.

Candles and Potpourri: Fall’s favorite moments usually involve delicious smells. For olfactory joy, pumpkin spice, nutmeg and coffee scents are your best bet.

Wreaths: Decorating your home’s front door is an important step in creating a warm, welcoming environment. Adding a wreath takes less than five minutes and makes positive changes to your home’s vibe. Look for wreaths with pinecones, dried walnut shells, pine needles or fall foliage.

Art: There is no rule that says art can’t be swapped out seasonally. Oil paintings, pottery and woven baskets in autumnal colors and heavier weights can inspire your interior and ease you into fall’s fresh energy.
