The Five Senses of Fall

October 24, 2017

There is nothing quite like anticipating the changing of seasons. At Wren & Willow, our windows have been decorated for Fall, (scroll to the end to see) and we are enjoying the cool air as we light our fireplaces. Here are some of our favorite ways to bring the five senses of Fall into your home.

 

1. Scent

The simplest things can create a homey environment. Scents are closely linked to emotional recollection. Specific scents can fill you with nostalgia, and instantly lift your mood, like the moment you light a candle.

 

Our preference when choosing a candle is that it isn’t too sweet, but still has a scent that  reminds us of Fall. Soy candles burn best, and we recommend Wax & Wool etc. candles, made right here in Tacoma. www.waxandwooletc.com

 

2. Sight

Holidays are a great time to give your neighbors and friends a glimpse into your personal style by decorating your home. Interior decorating is a great way to bring the new season inside. Exterior decorating, on the other hand, helps others to get into the spirit of the season!

Consider taking decorating cues from nature. During the Fall season, the Pacific Northwest is full of brilliant colors of green, brown, bright yellow, fire orange, and deep red. These colors will give your home a warm feeling to carry your family into the cold months ahead.

 

3. Taste

 

While Summer is full of BBQs, Fall is when you pull out the baking supplies and the slow cooker. A good pot of soup that's been simmering all day is ideal while watching football. Check out the recipes we’ve included from our very own cookbook One-Hundred Eats by Wren & Willow, now available for purchase. Email for inquiry. 

 

 

4. Touch

 

It's time again to put away your shorts and swimsuits, and get new school clothes with plaids, tweed, and warm jackets. 

Fall is a great time to switch out your home's wardrobe, too!

 

Consider replacing some of your lighter blankets with chenille, wool, and plaid throws. Layering throws and pillows can help to prepare for colder nights ahead.

 

5. Sound

The season of long evenings outdoors is over, and now it is time to move inside. The soft flicker of a candle, rain drizzling outside, fireplaces crackling, and the oven timer announcing dinner is ready are all inviting sounds of Fall. Let the sound of Autumn invite you to hunker down and stay a while.

 

Put on those fuzzy slippers and grab your favorite book, and take a deep breath. The holidays are coming, but for now, enjoy the soft quiet of Fall.
