You know that fall is in the air when temperatures start to drop and the leaves begin to change color. When autumn finally rolls around, it’s always fun to add some touches to your home to make it feel more cozy and perfect for snuggling up on the couch. If you’re unsure of where to start, here are some idea for making your even feel cozier for this time of year, ranging from classic natural elements to comforting textiles and season inspired touches that will help create an autumnal atmosphere.
You don’t need to look too far to get inspiration. Some of the hallmark signs of fall come from the outdoors, and you can quite literally collect leaves, pinecones, and anything else to help make your home feel more like autumn inspired by nature. You can fill up glass jars or scatter them artfully around the house for easy fall decor.
Warm Color Palette
One of the best parts of fall are the warm colors associated with it, including burnt orange, golden yellow, deep reds, and rich plums just to name a few. You can buy blankets, shades, and rugs in these colors to help make your home feel more like it’s time for autumn.
Some textiles that are associated with autumn include plaid, faux fur, and seasonal patterns. You can incorporate curtains, throw pillows, comforters, and blankets to make your house much more cozy and autumnal.
Candles and Lanterns
To create a lovely ambiance, consider adding candles to your home. You can elevate your candles even more by getting laterns to place them in. Take your fall candles even further by getting scents that are warm and cozy for the time of year like apple cinnamon, cedar wood, and pumpkin spice.
Another lovely component to add to your home is a fall inspired wreath that you can place on your door to welcome your guests. These can incorporate dried flowers, burlap, pinecones, and seasonal berries. Make sure to follow the warm color palette discussed earlier!
If you’re having guests over during this time of the year, you can help create the fall ambiance in your home by adding in appropriate decor on your tablescape. This include napkins in fall colors, pumpkins and gourds, dried leaves (or fake ones in order to keep things sanitary), and of course, candles.
