Cozy Fall Decorating Ideas

As sad as it is to say goodbye to summer, there’s something deliciously cozy about fall—the cool, crisp air, the blazing foliage, hot mugs of cider, and the return of knee-high boots. As the temps drop and the urge to hibernate rises, embrace the season by making your home as cozy and comfortable as possible. Here, our favorite quick and easy fall decorating ideas.

Textured Pillows

Swap out the crisp cottons and airy linens of summer for thick, textured fabrics—warm wools, chunky knits, and silky velvets. Pillows and poufs are an easy way to introduce new fabrics without having to do a major overhaul. We love the woven popcorn design (not to mention the bold pop of color) on this fall-friendly pillow

A Fuzzy Throw

You need at least one for the bed and one for the sofa, but you can never have too many throws. Some of fall’s greatest pleasures are snuggling up with a good book, binge watching TV on a chilly night, or just hanging out on the couch talking and drinking wine for hours—and wrapping up in a fuzzy throw is a must for all of the above. Just imagine how inviting this option would look draped across your favorite armchair.

A Vibrant Rug

Just because summer is over, doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to bright colors. Adding a punchy new area rug to your living room or bedroom is a great way to make your space feel cheerful on even the darkest of days. This chenille rug would feel amazing underfoot when stepping out of bed on a brisk fall morning.

Candles, candles, candles

Nothing sets a cozy ambience like fire, and even if you don’t have a fireplace, you can get that same feeling from candlelight. Scatter candles everywhere—along the mantel, on side tables, and window sills—Interspersing classic ivory with warm colors, like cranberry and orange. Don’t forget to include a scented option, like this woodsy candle that practically screams sweater weather.

Fall Foliage

Bring the outside in, literally. Fill a vase with a bouquet of colorful leaves, a cluster of berry branches, or a spray of wheat stalks. Or fill a wooden bowl with pumpkins, gourds, and acorns. If you’re in the mood to go all out, this maple leaf garland would bring a cheery pop of color to your staircase.

Plaid Patterns

Plaid is to fall what seersucker is to summer. The great thing about plaid is that it not only imparts instant coziness to any space, but it’s also extremely versatile—think flannel sheets, tartan tablecloths, plaid blankets, and more. There are so many ways to incorporate this warm-weather fabric into your decor, and it never goes out of style so you can use it year after year.

Indoor Wreath

Wreaths aren’t just for the holidays. Hang a fall wreath on the inside of your front door or above the living room mantel for a festive way to welcome guests. We love the simplicity of this berry wreath from Wayfair.

Low commitment and easy on the wallet, these high impact ideas will get your living space ready for fall in no time. Happy decorating!
