Cozy Fall Nesting {Settling In}

I‘m extra excited about fall this year! Not that I’m not always excited about fall, but you know. Every fall is new and exciting :). Even though we are in that awkward and less than pulled together state of being all in moved into our house but not at all set up, I still am loving that I can putter around the house and start to cozify it.

Cozy Fall Nesting {Settling In}

There’s something so comforting about creating a cozy place to call home for your family in the fall, the best season of all! Even just pulling out the warm plaid blankets and the plush pumpkins has been a good reminder that in time, layer by layer, this house will become our home.

You can find this mirror hereThe lamp seems to be sold out everywhere I check, but it’s called the Safavieh Color Swirls Lamp in Navy! I got it on Overstock.

Cozy Fall Nesting {Settling In}

It’s the layers that will add the warmth, the character and the personality that will make this house feel less like real estate photos and more like a reflection of the people who live here now. Nesting takes a bit of time, trial and error, patience and happy experiments, fails and wins. Little by little more of the pieces of the house-puzzle will start to fit and soon the whole picture of what our home will become will start to be revealed.

Cozy Fall Nesting {Settling In}

The deeper joys of nesting don’t just come from setting up the most perfect vignette or decorating with seasonal elements, but rather through the process of settling into a new comfortable rhythm of life. Puttering around the house might seem like a frivolous or even unnecessary pursuit, but the fact is that nesting in the fall isn’t wasted time at all. It’s a comforting way to welcome us home.

    Autumn is also my favorite season. The weather finally starts to cooperate and having the windows open after a hot and very humid summer just feels like a dream! We are busy finishing painting projects leftover from the spring and gearing up for a garage sale this weekend. This year we’ve focused more on our house and have replaced an old sofa and chairs as well as replacing an almost 20 year old mattress for my husband and I. Now we just need to sell all the old! After it’s finally all out of the house I can start to focus more on our fall decor and cozying things up here in the house. Today I will be making pear jam from all the pears we picked off of our pear tree last week so the house will smell wonderful! Autumn is a beatiful season!

My son bought me the most beautiful brilliant plump orange pumpkin over the weekend. I’m in love❤️. I have a thing for pumpkins. I think it started for me with the It’s the Great Pumpkin peanuts cartoon in childhood but needless to say- They are a very special part of Fall– each one with a personality of it’s own:).

    We just moved into our first home in at the end of April and we’re still working on trying to make it ours. It is so much bigger than any apartment or rental house we’ve lived in and trying to find our style and dream about what we want to do to it has been a lot of fun. Fall is my favorite time of the year too. Last week I made crockpot pumpkin butter and this week, apple pie spice pecans. I can’t wait to start decorating for the season =)

    I have already started the process of Fall since the Summer was so warm and bright=overwhelming. Pumpkins would be a nice touch of glamour to the more austere fall that I have planned with those plaid blankets and less crazy Summer clutter (banish sunscreens to the bathroom).

    Though I always mourn the passing of summer- the crisp fresh air of fall, it’s slanty sunshine and brilliant hues does bring joy to my heart.

    There is indeed something very special about fall. It is the best season! Being a born and raised life-long New Englander I am quite partial to this season!
    Love your new home and can’t wait to see the progression of it all coming together!

    Thoroughly enjoyed your comments on nesting, layering and it not being a waste of time. I’ve noticed in previous posts that was have a small print in common then today noticed your white and blue dog on the case perched on a stack of books…I also have two of them. Just fun to notice similar likes. Happy new home.

    Wondering if your topiaries on the mantle are real or artificial? I so want to have something alive with some color on my mantle. Tried a lemon cypress, but that was extremely short lived…..it’s now a dried up relic waiting to be thrown away. Always shied away from artificial plants in the past.

    Thanks for sharing this new adventure, Melissa!
    1-Love what you’re doing with your new (becoming) home! Esp. enjoying influx of colors (and nautical painting) which enhance your water views! Know you don’t like “swine” and “hog” colors very much; but have you considered a little less grey?
    2-Don’t recall seeing those wonderful marbleized lamps before: am smitten! Could you reveal source, pls?
    3-Looks as tho Jack’s adjusting to the move well (terrific pic!) – so how’s Lily doing with the many changes?
    4-Reminder to all: Another way to enjoy Fall (and echo those pumpkins) is to watch the total lunar eclipse on Sept. 27-28. The full harvest “blood moon” eclipses like this only every couple of decades. Eastern 1/2 of US can see entire “happening” – like a big, round orange pumpkin in the sky! Best of all, this show is free! Access internet (Goddard and Time & Date) sites for more info.

Decorating and celebrating Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love that it is about “Giving Thanks and Celebrating with Gatherings of Family and Friends”. The colors of Fall bring warmth into my home as the weather changes to cooler days and cold nights. The display on your mantel of the beautiful pumpkins is a good idea I would like to follow. There are so many ways they could be incorporated into Fall decorations through out our homes. Thank you for your creative and inspiring ideas!

    Although I love spring and summer and all the warmth that comes with them, I think that what I like the most about fall is the chance to prepare for the cold of winter. I struggle with the cold of winter, and fall allows me to better prepare for it–especially mentally! To feel like we are all “snuggled in” and ready.
    The beautiful colors that come with fall are such an added bonus!!

    I have a recurring dilemma that occurs every year that maybe you can help me with…
    I’m a Jersey girl! I grew up by the shore and experienced the lovely shades of Autumn, crisp air, pressed leaves, etc. But, now, I live in Florida where it is hot through October with virtually no change to make it feel like my favorite season is here. My favorite season (Autumn), holiday (Thanksgiving) and decorating is fall colors and layers; but, the layers also seem to make it “feel” hotter in the home. Do you have any suggestions to bring Fall to Florida?
    Your new home is lovely! I’m looking forward to following your journey in making it your own.

    We are planning a move in about two months so it would seem silly to “nest” for the fall…but with all the chaos of packing, I need some cozy. It is my sanity!! I will not do what I would normally, but I definitely will still keep some throws out and come up with some little vignettes, even if only using some outdoor things like branches, leaves, pinecones, rocks, and whatever! Those sweet little pumpkins from the LoveFeast Shop would certainly help my decor and will travel well once we move! Thanks for a chance to win!!

    I love the mention of warm plaid blankets and plush pumpkins; I’m not a big fan of fall just because it means that winter is not far behind( and winters here are extremely long and cold) but you make it sound so inviting. If there’s one thing about fall that I enjoy, it’s the many changing colors and the cooler ( but not too cold) weather that makes a walk outside so enjoyable. Thanks for sharing how you make your home ready for fall, you have inspired me to add a few touches of my own.

    Just starting the fall decor season with shades of white and cream and tan…then plan to slowly add more color as the temps get cooler. Congratulations on the book – can’t wait to see it. As always, the pumpkins are adorable.
