It’s that time of the year again- kids are back at school, the weather is starting to get cooler, and the leaves are changing colors. This is the perfect opportunity to get your JLOFTS Greenwich apartment ready for fall! Even the simplest of changes can make a difference. Here are our favorite fall updates:

1. Making Space. Similar to the idea of spring cleaning, our living spaces need a fall clean up—especially with the holidays around the corner. One way to get your JLOFTS apartment decluttered is to revamp your closet. As the weather starts to get cooler, and you’re sure to be doing outdoor activities like apple and pumpkin picking, swap out your warm-weather clothing for sweaters and flannels. Put those flip flops in storage and pull out those gorgeous leather boots you’ve been missing. You can also take this time to get rid of any clothing you haven’t worn in a while to make room for new fall purchases. Bringing your gently worn items to a thrift store or clothing drive will help others as you update your wardrobe.

2. Throw Pillows. Whenever the seasons start to change, the summer pep can be replaced with the comfort of autumn. By switching out those brightly colored pillows for warmer colors and soft textures, your JLOFTS apartment will begin to reflect the seasonal feel. Once you break out your fall pillows, and maybe drape a fuzzy blanket or two across the back of the couch, your living room will become a cozy retreat. By adding prints and patterns, you can keep your JLOFTS apartment fun and personal. Don’t have any seasonal pillows? You can always head down to Greenwich Avenue and do some shopping!

3. Add Accents. As the rush of summer slows down, it is important to take a moment to relax and prepare to embrace the fleeting beauty of fall. Sometimes you blink, and the season is gone! Take the time to create a warm ambiance with sweet smelling candles—like apple pie or pumpkin spice. Bring the outdoors inside by keeping a plant that is low maintenance, or, if you’re crafty, try your hand at making a festive wreath with fall leaves and pinecones to hang on your door. After a long day at work, or out and about running errands, your JLOFTS apartment will invite you to relax, saturated with the comforting scents and colors of fall.

4. Hot Beverages on Hand. Love having a hot drink as the weather turns cooler? Stock your cabinets with options for when company comes over—and there are so many to try! You can purchase a milk-frother to make your own pumpkin-spice lattes at home, explore the hundreds of varieties of loose-leaf teas, or peruse Pinterest for the perfect mulled cider recipe. The possibilities are vast—and will all leave you and your guests feeling warm, cozy, and content.

As the new season approaches, JLOFTS apartments for rent in Greenwich CT mirror all there is to love about fall–from the smells and colors, to the outdoor activities. Since JLOFTS is bark-friendly, be sure to include your four-legged friend in your autumn activities!
