Cozy Kitchens for the Cold Seasons
It may still feel a bit warm outside right now, but the colder weather will be here before we even know it. That signature crisp chilly feeling, the puffs of white air that follow whenever we let out a breath, and all of the glorious pumpkin-flavored lattes will soon come and autumn will soon be here. With the hot seasons come and gone, leaving behind nice tans and well-used barbeque grills, it’s time to welcome the cold weather with welcoming arms. Sure, it’s fine to just layer on some sweaters and add a blanket here or two, but who says we can’t welcome in the cold seasons in style? The cold seasons don’t just mean making yourself warm, but your home too – i.e. your kitchen because your kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where all of the autumn baking and hot cocoa making and family gatherings will take place. So it’s important to make it as cozy and warm as possible because autumn is the season of family and festivities.
Green and Wood
Believe it or not, but autumn is much more than orange and black. It’s about earthy tones and what’s earthier than shades of greens and wood? This color pairing works well because it brings back the visual senses to a healthier and comfier tone than just overwhelming the eyes with large amounts of orange and orange and orange. Add a touch of balance with accents of copper and bronze to balance out the shades of green and wood while you bring out those fall decorations.

A fruit basket is an easiest and simplest way to add a touch of warmth into your kitchen. Beyond just color and blankets, create a fruit basket in a straw basket with some apples and fall florals to get into the autumn mood. Not to mention, make it your centerpiece on your kitchen table or counter bring the look altogether.
Now, the kitchen isn’t your living or bedroom. You simply can’t bring a blanket into your kitchen to add a touch of warmth to it like you can any other room in your home, so the best solution? A rug. Add any rug of your own taste and preference to give that sense of coziness to your kitchen for the upcoming season.
Natural Wood Accents
You can never go wrong with natural wood accents. Wood has a natural warmth about it that is the perfect addition to any room to give it that element of heat. It also balances any style with its textured appearance and earthy hues.

Summer was the season of being open and free, lots of air and space to breathe and run wild. In contrast to it, autumn and the colder seasons are all about layers and tasteful clutter. To add your own personal touch to your kitchen while also warming up your kitchen, why not add some framed artwork or pictures onto your wall? Most people tend to forget to add art to their kitchen walls, leaving it bare and cold as a result. Frame some of your children’s artwork or find some at a nearby thrift store to add some color and seasonal glow to your kitchen.
