Always Keeping It Cozy
I’m all about making our home as cozy as possible during Fall and Winter and take the task very seriously! Since we live in Florida, we don’t experience the seasons quite like everyone else, so I tend to over compensate with my decor! 😉 I love going over the top with our front porch and adding little touches of the season inside as well.
When it comes to dressing our home up seasonally I tend to lean towards subtle and try to work the decor into our already decorated space… I’m all about the flow.
For instance, since we already own quite a few blue and white pots, I’ll dress them up for the season with mums… using our established decor as guidelines. Same with adding in a fall throw or pillow, I will try to get colors and styles that already go with our couch, rug, and drapes, but that also nod to Fall. It really helps me from going overboard when walking into a place like Target or Homegoods where I instantly want to buy everything ‘pumpkin spice’ I see!
Below are a few of my favorite Fall decor items – all around cozy things I love bringing out this time each year!
Fall Home Favorites
Blue & White Pottery
Last week friends of ours dropped by the prettiest mum and I quickly potted it in one of our favorite blue and white pots, placing it in the foyer. I can’t tell you how many complements we’ve received about it since. The yellow just pops with the blue and white and is such a pretty little nod to Fall.
Handmade Coffee Mug
I have this mug from Paper and Clay Studio in the peach & white and love it! So when I saw that they launched a persimmon color I flipped! This is perfect for Fall. Also, in real life these mugs are gorgeous. The photos don’t do them justice. I’m dying for the entire set.
The Magical Muffin Tin
Okay, my sister gave me this muffin tin for my birthday in June after seeing the sad tin I had been using. When I opened the gift she said, and I quote, “this one will change your life.” And, OMG, she was right. WHAT have I been doing all these years?
Not only does it bake SO evenly, but I haven’t had a problem getting baked goods out nor any issue cleaning. I’m telling you, this pan really is amazing. Also, now thanks to her I want the entire baking set for Christmas. It’s literally a game changer.
I love Birdies slippers and actually own a few pairs! They are perfect for wearing around the house and definitely make you feel very chic! I’m not a barefoot girl and I always have to be wearing shoes or slippers, so these new bow mules from Birdies are right up my alley! Don’t they look cozy?
I know I’ve mentioned LAFCO candles a few times here, but guys, they are unreal. I cannot recommend them enough! I am SUPER sensitive to scents and get headaches regularly with perfumes, but this candle brand has knocked it out of the park every single time for me. Plus, is it really Fall if you don’t have a cozy scented candle?!
I love writing notes and always have a list a mile long, but for some reason, maybe it’s “You’ve Got Mail”, but when October/November rolls around I’m always a little more excited about sitting down with a cup of coffee and a stack of snail mail.
Also, if you’re a paper person like me… you HAVE to order a set or two of these boxed thank you notes. The paper is so thick and nice and who doesn’t love a lined envelope?!
