Before you dive back into your routine at the end of another hectic summer, take time to concentrate on the function and organization of your home. Create a clutter-free, thoughtful life by editing every room and focusing on smart storage solutions and calming colors and fixtures.
Follow these simple steps for a serene space even Marie Kondo would approve of.
The best way to keep clutter at bay is by having ample storage solutions for all your essentials. Creating “homes” for your belongings helps create a clean and clear space, a.k.a., instant tranquility. Thoughtfully designed options offer a practical—and visually appealing—way to improve the function of your rooms. Storage has never been so stylish.
When cooler temps start creeping in, weave subdued neutral shades in a variety of textures into your rooms for soothing serenity. These tried-and-true muted, neutral hues provide plenty of ways to stand out while blending in. After all, beige is the new black.
3. Bright Idea
The days are getting shorter and daylight saving time will soon be over. Don’t wallow in dimly lit doldrums. Bring as much light as you can into your home by cleaning your windows, strategically placing mirrors and adding a new lamp or two to combat the darker months ahead.
Fall may be about getting serious, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to all the fun. Keep the ingredients for your favorite cocktails stylishly stocked and within easy reach by designating a tray, bar cart or repurposing an armoire into a “bar”moire for all of your autumn hosting needs. Goodbye frosé, hello spiced mulled wine.
5. Make Space
There’s no better way to refresh your home for fall than by saying goodbye to pieces that no longer spark joy. Make room for something that will make your heart sing, and find a new home for formerly treasured pieces by consigning them with Sotheby’s Home.
