Bringing Fall to Southern California!

by Shea Homes Southern California on November 6, 2015


When you’re a resident of Southern California, the weather is pretty much perfect 24/7. Constant sunshine (except for a few spurts of rain here and there), warm temperatures in the winter time when we should be wearing hoodies and parkas, and zero use of the fireplace that’s just collecting dust.

Of course it’s fabulous having such nice weather all the time, but when Fall comes around, us SoCal natives can’t help but yearn for the changing of leaves and feel the urge to wrap up in a snuggie next to a crackling fire. If you’re feeling the Fall blues, we have 6 easy tips on how to bring your favorite season to Southern California!

Blankets – It may be too warm outside to even fathom wrapping up in a blanket, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull them out of the closet and make your living room feel like it’s gearing up for a winter storm! And of course there’s always the air-conditioning to put a little chill in the air.


Candles – Ahh the scents of Fall are like no other. Apple cider, pumpkin pie, cinnamon and pine. Fill your house with these glorious fragrances by lighting some of your favorite autumn-ey scented candles! You’ll instantly be transported to a cozy, snuggly, magical place.  



Faux Fireplace – Have you been longing to read a book with a warm fire burning in the background? If you don’t have a fireplace in your home, a very quick and effective trick is to search “fireplaces” on YouTube! There are some great videos on there with fabulous crackling sounds and everything! Have this playing in the background whilst sipping some hot cocoa and it’s just like having the real thing.



Yummy Foods – Bake all of your favorite foods that remind you of Fall. Not only will your house smell amazing, your taste buds will be extremely happy!



Pumpkin Decor – Nothing shouts Fall like the beautiful sight of pumpkins. Pumpkin centerpieces, pumpkin table cloths, pumpkin runners, pumpkin dishes…. just make your home pumpkin happy!



Leaves – Seeing the leaves change color is a huge reason why we all love this time of year so much. We may not live in a place where this happens as boldly and beautifully as other parts of the world, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy the colorful, crunchiness of Fall leaves! Just buy a plethora of leafy decor, as well as sticks, and create your own Autumn wonderland!


We hope these tips cure your Fall envy and that you enjoy the wonderful season ahead!
