Fall Decorating

It is that wonderful time of year again when the deep greens and blues of summer give way to the gorgeous vibrant colors of fall.  The days are crisp and comfortable leaving the hazy, hot, humid, sticky days of summer as a distant memory. The harvest is about to reach its peak with apples, pumpkins, squash, and corn galore.  It is also that time of year when our light fabrics of white and pastel get stored away, and we bring out the heavier materials of red, orange, yellow and browns.  We break out our designer boots, and decorative scarves, sweaters and sweatshirts for a fashionable fall look as we spend the afternoons picking apples and bringing in the last of the fruits from our crops before winter hits.  The house is filled with the smells of nutmeg, cinnamon, and apples as fall baking ramps up and tummies are full of fruity treats and vegetables beyond measure.
With all of this hustle and bustle we also seem to find the time to break out our new fall decor.  This year the window dressings are full of color and texture.  Patterns are definitely in, especially the patterns containing falling leaves & twigs.  Be sure to compliment your fall drapes with an attractive valance. Orange, yellow, brown, and maroon add richness and elegance to any window or entry way.  A small display of hay, pumpkins, gourds, and cornstalks can add warmth to your foyer and give a comfortable invitation to your guests.  Floral arrangements with deep autumn colors also add depth and style.  Those planters with mums of various fall colors add beauty to any front porch or front stoop.
Also, as the days begin to shorten and the evenings fall way too soon, candles are used to create a warm, happy ambiance.  Candle scents such as pumpkin spice, cranberry, and apple cinnamon only add elegance and comfort as they glitter and dance in the evening twilight.  Fall is not only the preparation time for winter, but also a deep, fresh breath of relaxation before the work of ice and cold begins.  It truly is a glorious season!
While you are up on that ladder attaching your fall decorations, it is a great opportunity to inspect your doors and windows for signs of wear.  If you find that your windows have become drafty and drab, or if they have aged to the point that allows fog and moisture to be trapped between the panes it may be time to replace them.  Here at Window Nation, we have the latest styles in energy efficient windows at great prices.  Our triple pane options add beauty and elegance while offering the highest level of energy efficient savings.  Give us a call today and begin your home fall face lift.  Stay warm on those upcoming blustery days while saving money on your heating costs by having those beautiful new windows installed today.
