Fabrics You’ll Love For Fall Weather

As the weather starts to change, it’s a good idea to switch out your summer textiles for more hearty, warm fabrics. Wool and organic cotton bases for autumn will refresh your design and create a cozy winter bunker in your space!

The wool family is large and a cold weather staple. Cashmere, merino, mohair and flannel are all a part of the wool family, which makes them incredible insulators to keep the heat in. Wool is the most hearty of winter fabrics, perfect for living room throws or even a full bedding set for cold climates.

Organic Cotton is a versatile textile, making it a great option for any season. Soft and breathable, yet still able to keep the heat in, this fabric can be used for bedding as well as upholstering chairs, couches etc. Pick colors that bring your space into a dreamy, autumn landscape.

Linen is another trans-seasonal fabric. Not everyone needs a heavy wool blanket for fall, so if you find yourself in more moderate weather, linen will be your best option. Flax linen is a natural, soft fabric. You can add warmth by simply adding extra layers, yet the properties of linen ensure that you will still be kept cool. If you still desire a fall aesthetic, simply purchase bedding, upholstering fabric or blankets in colors such as rust, terracotta, clay and burgundy.

Pre-Holiday Grounding Rituals

It’s no secret that tensions start to rise as the holiday seasons approach. Maybe it’s the stress of hosting a large dinner party, or maybe the nerves of seeing distant friends and family. Whatever the trigger is, we want you to feel good going into the season and have the necessary tools to ground yourself before the madness begins!

Morning Stretching. Movement is one of the best ways to work out the kinks in life. Simply taking ten to fifteen minutes in the morning to stretch and move your body will start your day with positivity and wake up your mind for success.

Gratitude List. The act of writing is powerful. Words that are jotted onto paper are thoughts that go into the universe and soon manifest. One of the best ways to create positive energy around yourself is to make a daily gratitude list of ten things you are thankful for. These can be simple phrases outlining the things in life you appreciate. When you live with gratitude, your life becomes magical and it’s almost as if you have a bubble around you blocking out any negativity.

Fresh Air. When the walls feel as if they are closing in, step outside! The fresh air will jolt your mind into a new realm and release serotonin. You can take a walk around your street or even suit up for a run. Being outdoors, whether it is cold or hot outside, will help you to remember the beauty in our world– just keep your mind and eyes open!

Find Moments of Peace. Around the holidays we are usually surrounded by large groups. Family dinner parties, work events and various other obligations make finding quiet time difficult. For more introverted people, this can be exhausting. Finding a moment of silence can make all the difference in your day or night. A few methods could be stepping outside for a few moments alone or escaping to another room for five minutes. These few minutes of alone time will help to wind down the mind and reset.

Endorphins. Endorphins make you happy! These little guys are our natural energy boosters. Ditch the coffee and move your body instead! We release endorphins while working out, laughing and meditating. Ease your mind and radiate happy vibes.

Music. Ambiance is everything. Turn up tunes that make you happy. Dance around and do a little jig, or simply have it playing in the background. Songs that you love will be sure create a happy space for your day. It’s also a great way to set the mood for any gathering and ensure no awkward silences!

Create a Sanctuary. Make your home a sanctuary. Decorate your space with things that give you peace. Embrace color therapy and stick to an aesthetic that will bring clarity to your mind rather than clutter. What you include in your home is intimate and special to you, so make it your dream space!

Benefits Of Cold Weather Sauna Sessions

Fall is here and the temperatures are dropping. How are you staying warm this season? Stripping down and engaging in a relaxing sauna session may be your best bet to raising your body heat while lowering stress levels. Here are a few benefits of cold weather sauna sessions!

Detox. As your body heats up, you start to sweat. This act of sweating for a longer period of time helps to detox your body through the skin. Impurities and toxins will flow from within, leaving you feeling clean and clear.

Reduce Cold and Flu. Resting in a sauna daily, or even a few times a week, can help increase white blood cells and improve your immune defense to colds. The high heat can also help to destroy the virus and bacteria by raising your body’s temperature.

Clear The Mind. It is no joke that the holidays are stressful. With events such as Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, as well as ending job cycles, stress seems as if it is floating through the air. Relaxing in a warm sauna will provide you the necessary still moment to let your nerves rest and help to clear your mind. Taking the time to release tension and connect to your body, especially while detoxing, will leave you feeling lighter and present.

Warm Glow. Humans are designed to move. Movement is a part of us and in the winter months this can be daunting. A sauna session will open up your pores and allow your body to sweat as if you’re running or working out on the hottest day of summer– yet it is cold outside! You will be left with warm, rosy skin post sauna session. Just make sure to rehydrate with water.

Recovery. Whether you tumble down the ski slopes, have a burner session at the gym or simply experience annoying day to day aches and pains, the sauna will help your body to recover. Pain goes deep into your muscle tissues and it is important to warm them up to rid the aches. The heat will release the tension stored in our joints and muscles, allowing your soreness and aches to dissipate.

Peach Tones For Fall

Peach tones aren’t just for the summer! Peach is actually an incredible transition color into the fall months. This color brings in feelings of peace and friendship. Warmth radiates from any pigment of peach and will keep your space fresh in the cooler, darker months. Feeling peachy yet? We love this cheeky color and hope to see lots of it this fall season– check out these peachy home spaces for inspiration.
