Fall Decorating

The St. Louis summer heat has finally subsided and fall is in the air! I tend to want to curl up on the couch with a book, blanket and a scented candle around this time of year! I was inspired by Arhaus to share some quick tips on how you can make your home feel cozy during these cooler months.


Everyone first thinks of orange as the go-to fall color. However, I tend to lean toward neutrals and muted colors. Olive green, plum, golden yellow and warm metals are some favorites as well.

As the weather gets colder, we tend to add on layers:  a blazer, scarf, etc. The same goes for your home. Drape a chunky throw over your sofa and keep a few extra in a textural basket nearby. Another idea is to layer a plush shag rug over a jute/sisal rug for a soft feeling underfoot.

Now is the time to introduce some heavier textiles into your space.  Velvets, cable knits, faux fur and hide all add interest and warmth.

Simply placing a deer shed atop a stack of books, displaying a dish of mini gourds or acorns and sticking some freshly cut ginkgo stems in a vase can go a long way.

What is your favorite way to incorporate the fall season into your home? Do you prefer a subtle look or do you embrace the season with full force?
