Fall is not too long away, and for many of us, that means cooler weather is also on the way. If you’re like me, when the temperature drops, you like to be as cozy as possible whenever you’re at home.
With that in mind, as well as undertaking important home maintenance tasks like checking the roof, ensuring the insulation is working, and calling Advanced Heating & Cooling to service and repair the HVAC, you’re probably going to want to make a few tweaks to your interior design ahead of this Fall season too. If that’s the case, here are some of the best ideas to undertake:
Blankets and pillows
Blankets and pillows, when placed in any room, will instantly up the coziness factor by at least 50 percent, so ahead of the fall season, you’re going to want to hang that antique Afghan blanket on the back of the couch, pile the cushions in the bedroom up high and generally add as much warm, cozy and practical texture to your space as you can.
There’s nothing like soft, diffused light to make those dark Fall and Winter nights as cozy as can be, which for me means one thing - candles. Whether you place plain white candles in a hurricane lamp or arrange a group of your favorite fall-scented candles on every table, if you’re serious about being cozy, you need more candles in your life.

Use Fall leaves as inspiration
If you’re planning to repaint or switch up your interior decor in any way this Fall, and you want your efforts to reflect the season the easiest way to create a cozy color palette is by taking inspiration from the rich browns, golds, and reds of falling leaves. These colors naturally scream warm, cozy, and autumnal, so they are truly perfect for your home around this time.
Use a quilt as artwork
There’s nothing cozier than a quilt, but instead of sitting under one, why not hang one on the wall as a unique piece of artwork instead? If you don’t already have a much-loved family quilt, you could make one, but you can pick up some pretty interesting specimens at thrift stores for very little, which means they’re not only beautiful, cozy and atmospheric, but they’re also cheap too!
Pumpkins and gourds
If you’re up for a little Fall DIY project, buy as many pumpkins and gourds as you can carry and spray paint them, wrap them in string or simply arrange them in the most pleasing way possible, and use them to decorate your fireside, tabletops, and well anywhere you fancy really.
Hang a wreath
When it comes to your home’s exterior, hanging a wreath on the front door, made up of seasonal foliage, is a great way to create a welcoming entrance to your home for you, your family, and any guests who drop by, so be sure to get pick one up, or even better, make your own.
Make this Fall the coziest one yet for you and your family.
