As we have officially started a new season, I would like to share with you how to make your home cozy for fall.

I know, I know, you’re sick of me talking about how much I love Fall. LOL. For me, it’s more than just the cooler temps and the changing of the leaves. It’s more of an overall feeling of warmth and coziness. Not just with me personally, but within my house. This is how to make your home cozy for fall. These ideas will make your house feel like fall, no matter where you live.

Time to change out the pillows

Typically, the first thing I change out in a new season are my throw pillows. Think of adding textured pillows or pillow covers in your home. This might be a good time to introduce patterns and color too. You can even add pillows with cute phrases or fall colors.

Add throw blankets

In our home, we love to curl up with a throw blanket when watching television. What can be more cozy than that? Throw blankets also add another textured layer for your seasonal decor. Have some fun with patterns, colors and textures.

Bring Nature Indoors

Natural elements are a great way to bring the outdoors, inside your home. Bringing nature into our interior spaces offers an added benefit. These elements offer a huge impact on how we feel. They can reduce stress, blood pressure and heart rates, while increasing our creativity and overall well-being.

Fragrance

Scents are very personal for everyone. They spark our moods and memories. For us, fall fragrances are warm cozy and inviting. Citrus, cinnamon, clove, rosemary and more – we can’t get enough! Whether you light a candle, boil a simmer pot or or plug-in your diffuser – you can instantly have your home smelling like fall in no time. We recently shared how to make this dough bowl candle using fall fragrance.

Simmer pots are perfect because you control the fragrance. You can read how to create this fragrant fall simmer pot, using apples, cloves and more.

Pumpkins and Gourds

What better way to usher in fall than with pumpkins and gourds. They instantly add color, character and charm.

Group them together and add to a crate or tray. Tuck a couple of them on your bookshelves or tabletops.

  1. Oh my goodness..I would never have thought of using old yellow jacket nests for a Fall decoration!! Such a good idea. We have an old “big” one right at the very peak of our house, but I guess it’s staying there until hubby decides to bring out the big extension ladder and remove it…I love the look of the (maybe grapevine?) pumpkins. Such good texture. I am going to look for DIY on how to make those. Thanks for the great idea’s. I just wish I could find old wooden crates somewhere.

      Crazy collection, right? LOL We acquired these nests as there were several of them at one time at our homes. After they dried out we thought they there were great decor.
      Don’t give up on finding crates – just always be on the lookout. Best of luck!
