One thing I love to do in my house is reset the linens for every season. For Fall, I like to change out all of my pink and blue throw pillows for rich rusts and playful plaids and start cozying the space up with darker colors and textures. I always buy sturdy seasonal items that will be traditional and adaptable enough to carry over to the next year. Some of these pillowcases even make an appearance at Christmas time, and as such, I don’t mind spending a few extra dollars on them. For the most part, this is an affordable way to make your home cozy for fall.
How to Make Your Home Cozy For Fall
One. Change your pillowcases out for the season. I stress buying pillowcases and not pillows with pillow inserts. This way you’re not left with an abundance of out of season pillows stuffed into a linen closet 3/4’s of the year.
Two. Light some candles and make sure they’re autumn scented. Most of our experiences are triggered by our sense of smell, so invite Fall into your home with some scented candles that smell like warm cooking spices. I love CandleFish candles because each one has a specific scent focus and with the proper candle care, these candles last almost 60 hours of burn time.
Three. Have some seasonal candies on your coffee table. Replace the coffee table book with some seasonal and local chocolates. My favorite is La Fete Chocolate, not only are the boxes gorgeous, but they aren’t overly sweet chocolates and they have unique fillings, like marzipan and hazelnut creme.
Four. Layer up your chairs and couches with cozy throws. Once you’ve got all your pillowcases changed out, layer up your couches with a ton of throws and pillows. I like to have about 5 pillows on my couch and two throw blankets to keep warm with the onslaught of cooler temps.
Five. Add some art with rich Autumn colors. It’s a fun touch to change out your art to something more Fall colored. I love the abstract pieces of art that can be found at Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta. These pieces featured here are from Holly Addi.
Six. Bring on the pumpkins and Fall florals. When it comes to Fall decorating, you can NEVER have too many pumpkins! I also like to keep a flower arrangement with rich Autumn colors on the table at all time, there’s something about the freshness of florals that really liven a space up. In this post here, I’ve decorated my fireplace with a bunch of heirloom pumpkins and outfitted my fireplace mantle with some fall florals.
