21 Ways to Make Your Home Cozy This Fall will inspire you to embrace this time of year and enjoy everything autumn has to offer.

“Fall has always been my favorite season.  The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” – Lauren Destefano 

Fall is my favorite season.  It’s the time to unpack the sweaters that have been hiding away, throw blankets come out of the closets and hot drinks are sipped from your favorite mug.

What’s not to love about this time of year?

Decorating for autumn is so much fun.  It’s time to turn your home back into a cozy nest to cocoon in.

1) Harvest entryway.

Fall means pumpkins.  Pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread and pumpkins to decorate your home.  Your entryway should start the fall parade of pumpkin everything to all that knock on your door.

Besides pumpkins, candles are also something you can never have enough of decorating your home.

Scented candles like cinnamon roll, vanilla bean, espresso, brown sugar, pumpkin spice, and apple pie are just some of the fragrances to enjoy this season.


3) Reading nook.  

Create your own special cozy area where you can settle in and finally read those books you’ve been meaning to get to.

Bonus points if your area is near the fireplace.

12) Board games.  

A stack of board games is a great reminder of happy memories.  Why have them tucked away in a cupboard, when you can make them part of the decor?

Having them front and center in everyone’s view will inspire your family to challenge each other to a play off.

13) Rustic bread.

The smell of bread baking can turn any house into a heavenly place.  Start pulling out all those recipes you’ve been wanting to try to get ready for a delicious autumn.

Not only will freshly baked bread make your taste buds happy, but it will certainly make your house smell amazing.

14) Chinese lantern.  

There’s something so beautiful about Chinese lanterns.   They certainly add a punch to your fall decor.

To make a beautiful arrangement, add a bouquet of Chinese lanterns to a rustic container like an old wood barrel or an antique crock.  Remove the leaves and add other fall elements like leaves.

15) Plaid love.

Can I tell you how much I love plaid?  Plaid shirts, plaid blankets and plaid pillows just spell out cozy living.

17) Seeds of greatness.  

Acorns are the perfect fall decor item.  It’s amazing that from one small acorn, a mighty tree can be grown.

18) Coffee / Tea Station 

Make sure you have a dedicated spot to make the most divine hot drinks for fall.  If you love cappuccino, have your own espresso front and center.

19) Indoor nature.  

Bring the outside in by adding houseplants throughout your home.  Succulents, Christmas cactus, Peace lily, English ivy and Jade plants are just some of the ideas.

20) Fairy lights.  

I bet if someone did a study on if adding fairy lights to home decor, it would show that they add a touch of magic to everyone that uses them.

Maybe they remind us of twinkling stars in the sky and that’s why we have such a love for adding them to our homes.

Whatever the reason, add some to your decor and see if the magic touches you too.
