5 Ways to Cozy Up Your Home For Autumn

5 Ways to Cozy Up Your Home For Autumn

Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year. Of course I love the hot summer sun and all the fun things we can do when it's hot outside, but cozying up at home as the leaves fall and the temperature cools down is the ultimate indulgence for me. As the season changes, I also love to switch things up in my home a little bit, if for no other reason than that we tend to spend more time in our flat when it starts to get cold. Here are a few ways I love to get my home ready for the Autumn season...

1. Fragrance Switch-up
My favourite way to get in the mood for Autumn is to stock up on seasonal home fragrances. I love warmer, spicier scents in the Autumn as opposed to citrusy, lighter fragrances in the Spring & Summer. Apple, cinnamon, orange, lavender, camomile, patchouli and pine scents are always on my radar this time of year. I like to completely scent my home from with everything I can think of including room sprays, candles, diffusers, air fresheners, pillow & linen sprays and even bath products to make the bathroom smell nice. It's a great way to make a home feel even that much more cozy for the new season.

2. Seasonal Flowers
A well placed bouquet can be a real mood lifter and adds a nice pop of colour to any room. During the pandemic, I've filled my flat with flowers more than I usually would because they really do cheer me up and it's a bit of normalcy at a time when nothing seems normal. For Autumn, I love to buy all kinds of flowers from lilies to roses in traditional Autumn colours like red, yellow and orange. It doesn't have to cost a fortune to keep lovely blooms at home. If you're on a budget you can find lovely bouquets at reasonable prices in grocery stores or simply buy a few loose stems at a local florist. If I feel like splurging, I love to order a more elaborate delivery arrangement from AppleyardBloom & Wild or The Flower Yard.

3. Tableware Makeover
I live in small city flat, which means like it or not, our dinner table is always part of the decor. When the seasons change, I like to switch things up by updating how we dress our table. A new tablecloth, napkins and even serving dishes in Autumn colours are a good place to start and these things can all be found at any price point. If I'm feeling really into it or hosting guests, I'll go a step further with a centrepiece, fun glassware, new place mats or even special dishes. It's just another way to invite the seasonal vibes into our space. Here are a few fun tableware options for Autumn.
4. Festive Decorations
There's plenty to celebrate during the Autumn season... Halloween, Bonfire Night and Thanksgiving are all on offer, not to mention the general celebratory vibes around harvest time. I love to dot decorations around my home every Autumn whether they're connected to a holiday or not... Even a few well-placed pumpkins or gourds can brighten up the room!

5. Cozy Home Accessories Update
Store away the fans and get out the cozy textiles... A fuzzy rug under foot, some velvety soft couch cushions or a furry blanket can make all the different when you're cozying up for the new season. I recently replaced my couch cushion covers with a lush velvet option and they're perfect for snuggly movie nights at home! Scroll through below for some inspiration...
