Often we hear that spring is the time to freshen up.  But don’t forget about fall.  At Savvy, we believe  every season is an equal opportunity reason to refresh.  

Here are 3 easy places to shake things up for autumn.

1. Pillows. Yup, them again. In the home, pillows are a favorite in the fall, and every other season. They are a small change with big impact…and there’s one (or a dozen) for every budget.  You can switch patterns, textures, sizes.  You can move them from the living room to the bedroom. You can alternate from neutrals to bold colors.  What’s your mood this month?  Savvy is certain there’s a pillow to suit it.  And the best part, when you recycle your inserts you only need new covers. And by storing the covers you’re not using this season,  they’ll be like new again the next time you use them.

2. Linens. Take a look while you’re putting away the beach towels and switching out the summer bed linens for something weightier.  Anything looking a little dingy, tired or underused?  If your bed linens are catching more dust than you’re catching z’s on them, then it’s time to let them go.  Keep just one extra set of sheets for each bed in the house. You know, ones you’ll actually use and ones that are a complete set.  The random pillowcases and fitted sheets, they should go with the summer wind.  And the same for towels. Keep what you use.  The ones in the back of the closet, the mismatched, the ones you’ve had since college, since your first apartment, since the kids were babies…yup, those.  You know the drill…gone with the summer wind. 

And once you weed out the old, treat yourself to some freshies.  Savvy always loves white towels, in any size or texture. And for the bed, try some new shams, a new quilt or a cozy throw for fall.  Perhaps in a deeper color, a heavier texture, a cozier feel. You don’t have to switch out all of the linens, but adding a little something, gives you just that…a little something, something.

3. Scents. Candles, diffusers, room sprays.  Sometimes all you need is a fresh scent to liven up a room.  Scented candles are a classic.  Some of Savvy’s favs are Diptyque Baies, Le Feu de l’eau Bleu Nuit and Jo Malone Grapefruit. Diffusers can make all the difference in a space…just the perfect hint of fresh.  Savvy is currently obsessed with Apothia’s IF, Tocca’s Valencia and Zodax’s Tibetan Hibiscus.  In terms of linen and room sprays, Savvy’s standbys are Caldrea Sea Salt Neroli and Baja Zen Wanderlust. Use a few pumps in the air, on your bed linens, on your drapes…anywhere you need a wonderful whiff.
