Break-out out your favorite cable-knit sweater and brew some pumpkin spice coffee – fall is finally here! Of course, there are a slew of items on the agenda from planning a trip to the corn maze, to picking out a costume for Halloween (if you plan on really celebrating the holiday). But first things first, you have to spruce up your home for the season! Here is some must-have fall decor to get you in the autumnal mood.

Give Visitors a Proper Welcome

What better way to set the tone for your home this fall than to lay out the welcome mat for your visitors? Literally! An inviting, festive welcome mat will be the first thing you’ll see as you enter your home. Why not let it be a precursor to your overall design this fall?

Invite a Natural Touch

Fall is a time for harvest. It can invoke images of hay bales covered in autumn gordes and warm, earthy shades. Capture these visions by mimicking the natural essence of the season. Wicker and hand-woven grass are quintessential materials to work with when chasing a natural look. Play with rattan furniture and woven decor to lean into the earthy energy of fall.

Embrace Velvet

Cozy is the name of the game this fall. There are plenty of ways to cultivate a space that exudes comfort. One method is to be mindful of the materials your furniture and decor are. Velvet is one decadent fabric that will instantly up the cozy factor in your space. From tiny trinkets to mid-century modern loveseats, adding velvet to a space can certainly add a warm embrace to your fall decor.

Don’t Forget the Mantel

The fireplace is a central meeting place in many homes. It makes sense that such a spot would be important to consider when decorating for the fall. Your mantelpiece is the ideal environment for small pumpkins, Halloween knick-knacks, or other festive pieces to help signify the start of the holiday season.

Set the Mood With a Candle

Whatever the season, scent plays an important role in establishing a mood for your home. There is a range of classic fragrances that just scream fall – spiced pumpkin, apple cinnamon, and maple. But you don’t need to put yourself in a box! There are plenty of other candles that will be perfect for your ideal fall setting. For instance, our Amber Musk Candle evokes a warmth and comfort perfect for a chilly autumn day.

Prepare For Christmas Early

We might not all agree when it’s appropriate to start decorating for Christmas but that shouldn’t stop you from ringing in the most wonderful time of the year a bit early. So break out the string lights and get the cocoa mugs. If you’re not ready to put the Christmas tree up quite yet but you are excited to pepper in some holiday cheer, start by setting out small trinkets such as our ceramic tree set.

Dim the Lights

As the sunset creeps earlier and earlier, it’s time to prepare for shorter days once again. The fall and winter are ideal times to go inward and seek refuge from the cold nights cuddled up on the couch. That means making your home as cozy as possible. Lighting plays a huge role in what the feel of a setting is. Lanterns and fairy lights can add a layer of warmth to your space while relaxing with your loved ones over a movie or board game.

Cuddle In

Nothing spells cozy like a warm, soft blanket. If you don’t already have a stock of throws at the ready for nights cuddled up on the couch, you absolutely must make a point to hunt down a set. Our tartan blanket might be the perfect fit for your home this fall.

Fall in Love With Your Home

See what we did there? At the end of the day, you get to define your autumn experience and what makes it special. Decorate with the most kitschy, neon orange Halloween decor you can find. Or go for a more subtle fall harvest aesthetic. Listen to your instincts! As long as you take time to revel in the spirit of the season in whatever way you feel suits you, you’re sure to have a wonderful fall!
