When adding fall color, orange is not your only option. Jewel tones of deep purple, magenta, and even dark teal can go a long way in warming up a space.

Create a Cozy Nook

Even seldom-used areas of the home can be cozied-up. The addition of a daybed turned this pass-through porch nook into a comfortable destination for curling up with a good book. Throw pillows with plenty of texture warm up the cotton duck mattress cover.
