Fall is the perfect time of year – from the crisp air to the delicious smells that always seem to fill the air. Updating your home decor for Fall can be a fun but daunting task! Here’s a few ways to make your home cozy for the Fall:
Cozy Fall Throw Blankets
Throw blankets are a perfect way to make any living space feel warm and cozy. Faux furs, plaid blankets, and chunky knits in rich, vibrant fall hues are sure to bring the Fall feeling indoors!
Warm and Cozy Pieces
Decorating your home is all about incorporating pieces that make you smile. Seasonal decor is no different – be sure to choose pieces that make you feel warm and drawn to.
Decorate your Mantle / Shelves
Using fall decorations, change up your mantle and shelf decorations. You can use pumpkins, signs, greenery – anything that makes you feel in the Fall spirit! Skip the bright, Summery decor and opt for textures, foliage, artwork, and candles.
Bring the outdoors inside for a comfortable interior. Bringing the outdoors indoors will have you feeling connected to nature, even when the air is crisp outside! Olive branches, eucalyptus, and maple branches are all great Fall plants and are sure to bring life to any room.
Change Rugs / Curtains
Curtains and rugs are easy pieces to change with the seasons. Incorporate your favorite fall hues, such as reds, oranges, and yellows in your area rugs and curtains. Textures are a great way to warm up the space and what better way to feel cozy than to have a soft rug under your feet?
Swap Throw Pillows
Another easy way to make your home cozy for the Fall – throw pillows!
Festive Welcome Mat
Change your welcome mat to one with a seasonal greeting or with Fall elements, such as a pumpkin or plaid. The welcome mat and exterior decor will be the first thing that people see when they come over and is sure to give them a warm welcome.
What better way to say Fall than pumpkins? Use them to decorate anywhere and everywhere – there’s no such thing as too many pumpkins! And if there is, consider using a statement pumpkin as a centerpiece or as a greeting when you walk in the door.
Firewood / Fall Candles
When cozy comes to mind, we always think candles or a nice, warm fireplace. Stack wood next to your fireplace if you have one and set out those Fall scented candles! Not only will your home feel extra comfortable but it’ll smell good, too. My favorite Fall scents are apple cider, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon brown sugar.
Decorate the Outside
Don’t neglect your exterior! Decorating the outside of your home will make it feel warm and welcoming from the moment you arrive. Utilize fall colors, pumpkins, lights, and more to achieve this goal!
