Creating A Cozy Fall Home

Happy Friday friends! I have a busy weekend ahead of me. We’ll be finishing up our basement bathroom (I can’t wait to show you) and starting on clearing out the rest of the basement. It’s a huge mess. It’s mostly finished but without flooring. And unfortunately it has become somewhat of a storage space for all the things. But I really want to turn it into a fun hangout place for family get togethers. And of course it will be another space I get to decorate. Speaking of decorating, I’ve been busy adding Fall decor around my house. Fall is my favorite season. And I love getting my home cozy for the changing season. Afterall Fall = Cozy. Am I right? How do you cozy up a space? For me, it’s all about layers and texture with some warm colors mixed in. The areas I added the most warmth are my bedroom and bathroom but I did add a little color in my living room. For my bedroom I used a dark, burnt red.

I love how warm and cozy this color makes the room feel. As you can see, I also used a lot of texture and layers in this room. Notice the empty frames layered on the shelves? I love decorating with empty frames. It’s an easy way to fill a space and it adds a unique focal point. The shelves, from Decor Steals, are metal ledges and they have a slightly distressed finish on them.

How many pillows are on your bed? I love layering pillows on mine but my husband seems to have some kind of issue with it. LOL. He thinks we need less of them so we compromised and I put the same amount of pillows and he deals with it. Luckily, he’s a good sport and just puts up with me.

In my bathroom I used similar colors but they are a little more muted and softer. But still add a nice warmth and cozy vibe. Both the blanket on my bed and the shower curtain are from Target and are part of the Casaluna collection. It’s such a beautiful line of linens. Definitely check it out.

I kept the colors in my living room quite a bit more neutral with just a few Fall colors brought in with faux foliage. But with the added texture, layers, woods and whites it still feels cozy and warm.

The pre-lit cedar tree and fall foliage are from Nearly Natural and the hanging chair is from Songmics. My living room is honestly the hardest room in my house for me to decorate. It just never seems to come together the way I see it in my head. But I think we’re getting there.

I still really want to add faux beams on the ceiling and install hardwood flooring but those things will not happen for quite some time. Part of living in a fixer upper is being patient and knowing that all the things can’t happen at once. It’s a never ending project that can be frustrating but also so rewarding.

How are you cozying up your home for Fall? Are you adding lots of color or keeping it more neutral? Whatever it is you decide on, I hope you were able to find some inspiration here today. Thank you for stopping by!!
