Cozy Up Your Home For Fall

Besides thinking up creative Halloween costumes and cooking up some of our favorite fall foods, one of the best things about October is that you finally get to add cozy touches to your home. Your house should look different each season. In the spring and summer, it should feel bright, airy, and light. In the fall and winter, it should feel cozy, warm, and comfortable. The best part about changing up your décor is that it doesn’t take much effort at all. With just a few simple touches to each room, you’ll immediately feel ready for crunchy leaves and sweater weather! Today, we have a few simple steps to make your home feel cozier for the season.

For your family room: get a cozy throw blanket.

We love bringing out all of our softest and coziest blankets to snuggle up on the couch with during the later fall colder months. Most people have a nice fuzzy blanket on hand, so this is a change you can make without spending a dime. If you’re looking to spend a little on a fresh throw, opt for one that has a fall/winter feel to get you in the seasonal spirit.

For your dining room: change up your table scape.

In the summertime, it’s a good idea to place a row of succulents down the dining room table with seashells scattered around them. During the fall, change to a warmer color scheme, using natural décor like pinecones, colored leaves, and white mini pumpkins. You can also add apples, squash, cranberries, and candles into the mix for a very seasonal feel.

For your kitchen: treat yourself to fresh fall flowers.

Just as some flowers seem perfect for the spring and summer months, other blooms are ideal for fall. Adding fresh flowers to your kitchen (or really any room in your house) will make it feel festive and fresh. Make sure you know which flowers are in season before buying a fall bouquet from your local farmer’s market.

For your living room: add candles to your fireplace.

A blazing fire adds the best cozy feeling to a living room in the wintertime. But since we’re in fall, a time that is a little spookier, we suggest adding tons of candles to your fireplace for a warm, peaceful feel. When winter rolls around, you will be excited to change things up with a log fire!

Switch out your light, summer-y decorative pillows for warmer colors to give it a cozy, fall feel. While you’re at it, switch out the curtains, blankets, and throws as well! These are wonderful ways to show off your fall colors and a unique, seasonal personality.

A Cozy Bedroom

You have the airy, fresh bedroom that summer called for including white sheets and light coming in from every angle. Now, it’s time to bring in the neutral, warmer colors. Replace the crisp linens for cozier and comfier fabrics. This is by far the easiest way to progress along with the seasons. Change up the throw blanket, and you will have a wonderfully different effect.

Decorate with Nature

Fall is all about the leaves changing and pumpkin patches. Utilize these nature changes in your home decor! Place sticks and branches around them, or, if you’d like, you can put them together in bowls or vases giving it more of an organized outdoorsy look. If branches and sticks aren’t really your thing, use seasonal fruit! The best fall fruits to decorate with are apples and pears. They are clear indications of the fall season. To spice up your décor even more, add candles, gourds, and nuts, and to give this a fancier effect, you can spray paint the decorations metallic and neutral colors, such as cream and gold.

The Candle Tray

The candle tray is a great décor idea that helps a room feel warm and comfortable. Collect a group of candles of all different sizes and heights and place them on a tray that adds to the room you are currently decorating. The fun thing about this is you can change it up at any point in time, and it will always look great. Throw on some iron lanterns to give it a darker touch.
