5 Must-Haves for Your Fall Home (And The Cozy Fall Shop)

5 Must-Haves for Your Fall Home (And The Cozy Fall Shop)BHG

Are you hosting a fall, Thanksgiving or Christmas gathering in your home this year? PSA …. if you’re in the States, we have just 37 days before Thanksgiving (ahhh!). I am actually SO excited about hosting Thanksgiving this year! Last year things were pretty chaotic and we didn’t even have a kitchen, so you best believe I’ll be savoring the more calm atmosphere this year.

Now that there is a fall chill in the air, I have started to work on making my home cozy and comfortable (if you missed my post on bringing our sectional to our living room you can read it here, and my post on texture is here).

I’m more motivated to pull spaces together knowing that soon we’ll have friends and family gathered together for holidays and of course, just in general we’ll be curling up here more often trying to stay warm and comfy. Jack’s already got the comfy part down!

2. A warm mood with lamps and flickering flames.

(No fireplace? No worries, battery operated or real candles on a shelf or table stand in just fine.)

Try faux fur blankets and pillows on furnishings and add a rug to ground your conversation area.

You’ve likely heard me refer to transforming a home for fall with a cozy element known as “texture.” I sometimes get questions about what that actually means. I know that it might not always be super obvious or intuitive how to do it, but today I’ll share some designer tricks and tips to add more textural interest to your home this fall. In this post we’ll be talking about the types of textures that will enhance your home all the way until spring and even beyond.

I think it’s important to incorporate a variety of patterns that coordinate well together to make a statement without overwhelming a space. As I was looking for some new textural items to add to my home, I fell in love with these gorgeous pillows from Arhaus.  (If you aren’t familiar with Arhaus, they have gorgeous furnishings and accessories with a focus on quality, functionality and sustainable materials. I’ll share a few more items from Arhaus in this post plus I created a Pinterest board with other favorite finds from Arhaus here).

Because I know I’ll keep quality pillows for years, I look for a nice heavy weight insert (down is preferred) with a soft removable fabric cover in a classic pattern.

By incorporating a variety of organic, unique and opposing textures to your space, you can add more interest and warmth. In the fall, I focus particularly on adding layers of more heavily textured fabrics and materials. Cozy textures can be added through accessories, pillows, poufs, baskets, throws and artwork. Each one should have a unique texture.

To bring the textural impact of each piece up a notch, I’ll hunt for unusual or striking details such as tassels, stitching, or even an distinct pattern or variety of patterns on one piece.

Textures can be found in a variety of colors to suit your style, but I’ve always be drawn to organic textures in muted shades of blues/grays/greens/whites/blacks and with wood and metals.

This pouf is a great example of a beautiful mix of textures, details and patterns. It’s also super practical, it is solid enough to sit on comfortably. You can also use it to prop up your feet or to set a stack of books nearby while you’re curled up on the couch.

This navy striped dipped basket is a winner in the color, texture and function department. To really enjoy your home, make sure each item you have to touch feels touchable! Besides being an striking piece to look at, a basket like this is handy for storing throws, projects or anything you want to contain.

Accessories can make a statement by being a textural feast for the eye! I LOVE the mix of these organic rattan balls in a beautiful basket with leather handles.

Art work and wall hangings can be another opportunity to add warmth through unique textures. These botanical art pieces hung in our basement (found here) are printed on beautiful handmade paper. The paper itself is such a soft gorgeous texture, no frame was needed.

The organic texture and print softens the wall and quiets the space. Texture can make a beautiful style statement without screaming at you.

Jack thinks he adds the best texture in any room. I don’t blame him. He’s a pretty cozy guy. But even if you don’t have a furry friend, you’ll find that adding texture to your room with your furniture and accessories can make a space almost as cozy.
