With the dog days of summer in our rearview mirror, it’s time to embrace all that fall has to offer—vibrant leaves, crisp apples, chunky knits, a piping hot cup of cider. There’s a definite shift in our interiors as well, with windows closed up and darker hours descending.
Here are just a few ways to fill your living space with the sights and smells of the year’s most cozy season.
Throws and Pillows and Blankets, Oh My
Kill two birds with one stone (keeping warm and decorating for fall) by putting some beautiful throws and comfy blankets out on display. There’s nothing better than cozying up with an earth-toned blanket on a lazy day. To create a “fall vibe” in your home, go for classic prints, like plaid, and materials like chunky cable knit. We especially love this one from Pier One Imports, this cable knit throw from Wayfair, or this inexpensive pumpkin throw pillow.

Create a Fall Centerpiece for Your Table
Decorate your table with a homemade centerpiece made from fall flowers, pumpkins, leaves, pine cones, and of course, candles. All you’ll really need is a few fall elements, a table top, and some imagination to create something that looks festive at every meal. Or, simply place different sizes of fall vegetables, gourds, pumpkins, etc. on the dining room table for a (cost-effective) centerpiece.
