7 Ways to Cozy Up Your Fall Fireplace + Accessories

7 Ways to Cozy Up Your Fall Fireplace + AccessoriesDomino – Erin Fetherston

It’s hard to imagine anything cozier on a chilly fall day than being all curled up right next to a fireplace. So Hygge, right? Even though it is probably not quite cold enough to light a fire or even hide under a blanket, it’s not at all too early to start designing your living space around the fireplace in anticipation.

Here are 7 things you can do right now to enjoy a cozy fall fireplace:

1. Pull comfortable chairs in a little closer to the fireplace to create a cozy focal point.

2. Add a rug for softness (not so close to be a fire hazard, of course! Safety first).

3. Set up a basket for books and a comfortable footstool nearby so you can put your feet up!

4. Make sure you have your fireplace tools ready (or invest in new tools like this log holder and fireplace tool set)

5. Even if you don’t use your fireplace to burn fires, you can still decorate it with logs or candles for ambience. I got these pretty birch logs for mine, and I think this fireplace candleholder is so cool!

6. Order a log carrier for convenience and character. I think this leather log carrier would be so cute next to the fireplace.

7. Decorate your mantel for fall! Branches, pumpkins, framed art, candles, whatever inspires you! What will go on your mantel this year?

Do you have a fireplace for a fall focal point?

Fall Gather (What's Your Home's Fall Look?)

Happy First Weekend of Fall!

We put together a design board of elements (and a shop for you to browse) for a fall look that we imagined would feel fresh, warm, gathered and textured.

Because I love design, I’m a big fan of playing up the mood of a season in your own unique way.

I think it’s fun to dream up fresh combinations of items to inspire your own fall space. Why not create your very own signature look?

Here’s a fun way to design virtual spaces or even make them a reality:

Make a list of a few short but “descriptive” words to give yourself a head start on your desired look.

Then pull together a mix of elements to make your vision come to life!

We create our design boards in Photoshop, but if you don’t have a Photoshop or Photoshop Elements program, you can use a Pinterest board to pin your favorite items, Polyvore, or even use a real life bulletin board.

What would your ideal fall space look and feel like?
