Five ways you can stage your home to enjoy the season
Every year when it’s “back to school,” I start counting down the days until September 1. My favorite time of year is Christmas so my favorite season is fall. Fall marks the official beginning to Christmas in my book. Fall decorations, cooler weather, Halloween then Thanksgiving … they are like the appetizers for my main course. The calendar may disagree, but in my book September 1, is the official start to fall and according to people in my household, when I start cooking again! (It is true, I take a “life hiatus” pretty much all summer long … sandwiches for dinner, mac-n-cheese at least once a week, nachos whenever you want … that’s a story for another day!)
It doesn’t take much to start the transition in my house and get everyone feeling in the spirit. If you want to start taking advantage of the coming merriment, here are a few easy ways to “stage” your house so it feels “fall-ish” and starts getting you in the spirit for the most wonderful time of year! If nothing else, when you live in Central Texas and the thermometer is still hitting triple digits, feeling fall-ish gives you an opportunity to at least pretend it is cool outside!
The swimming pool may be closed and morning traffic may once again be tolerable only with a good cup of coffee and book on tape, but don’t let it discourage you as you look back at the dog days of summer. Start celebrating the coming seasons by adding a little fall to your household today! And if you decide you need a little help finding the right “look” to match your own style preferences and current décor, Starfish Home Staging is happy to help!
