How much excitement do you feel when leaves turn crisp and Pumpkin Spice everything hits the stores?
If your answer is anything between low-key thrilled and mass hysteria over cooler weather—we feel you.
These milestones usually signal Fall. And you know what that means?
It means it’s time to bust out the dusty décor boxes—or head to the shops—for a home design makeover (or a little upgrade at the least).
With these tips for a cozy Fall home, you’ll be snuggled up in no time sipping your favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte or Apple Cider beverage by the fire.
7 TIPS FOR A COZY FALL HOME
1. GO THROUGH OLD BOXES OF DECORATIONS
There’s no better time than a season change to go through old boxes of decorations.
Don’t be afraid to go full Marie Kondo and start tidying up and sparking joy with whatever’s in the boxes.
And that doesn’t mean you have to throw everything out and start over—it’s all about intention.
Keep what you love. Donate or give away what you don’t love. And choose intentionally going forward.
2. SET THE MOOD
If you love scents like candles and essential oils, or the smell of rain when you open the windows—this is your time to shine.
With Fall scents like pumpkin, apple, vanilla, and cinnamon—which are common—or deeper ones like sandalwood, frankincense, sage, and myrrh—you have plenty to choose from to set the mood.
And don’t overlook a good rainstorm to get the senses tingling. Crack the windows and allow the waft of that simple rain smell to permeate your home.
3. CREATE A DISPLAY
Don’t want to splatter your entire home with Fall décor? Create a display area like a sofa table or adorn a fireplace mantle.
Pumpkins, autumn leaves, candles, greenery, and even vases are all ideas for these special spots around the home.
Framed pictures of kids in Halloween costumes or leaf-peeping would be an added touch to bring it all together.
4. CRAFT WARMTH WITH THROW PILLOWS AND BLANKETS
Nothing says Fall better than warm blankets and pillows that are waiting to be used.
Plaid blankets rarely disappoint during this season. And you can probably get away with pillows that have sayings on them like, “Fall Y’all!” with cute leaves.
If you’ve ever wanted to push the decorations boundary, throw pillows and blankets are a perfect way to play with an edgy (or even cheesy) seasonal style.
5. LET NATURE BE YOUR GUIDE
From apple picking to leaf peeping, this season gives you plenty of opportunities to let nature be your guide.
- Incorporate leaves into the décor by framing them.
- Recycle flowers and use them as bouquets around the house. You can add grasses, berries, and pinecones to the flowers and if you’re really feeling festive, throw in a small, fake pumpkin to spice it up!
6. DON’T FORGET ABOUT FALL FOOD AND DRINK
A chile simmering—especially if it’s made with the famous Pueblo Chile’s—is sure to heighten the senses and warm the belly.
Apple cider, hot chocolate, and pumpkin spice anything on the stove is also a sure way to bring family and friends together, or help the day wind down.
7. KEEP IT SIMPLE
Want to get in the Fall mood, but don’t want to break the bank? Keep it simple with a basket or bowl filled with festive items like apples, leaves, pumpkins, etc.
Fall decorations don’t have to be expensive or over-the-top—they simply need to fit your style and mood.
If you love a change in season, these tips for a cozy fall home should help you anchor into this time and create lasting memories.
Just don’t forget to capture them, so you can put them in a Fall picture frame!
