Prepare a Cozy Fall Playlist

The slight chill in the morning air here in the NW suggests that fall is indeed on its way! That makes me endlessly happy, of course (I’m a true fall-lover) but I’m really not in a big hurry to say good-bye to summer. I know many of you are also still wrapping up summer and enjoying every minute of it, too!

Yet I do love fall and am so excited to get Fall Nesting underway!

As my regular readers know very well, one of my great joys is embracing seasonal rhythms. I love evolving the feel of my home with gradual shifts of the season.

I have often shared my personal feeling that seasonal changes in your home do not need to make you feel like you got whiplash from taking your home from summer to fall decor so fast your head spins.

For me, fall is not a decorate-in-a-day by bringing out all the plastic bins of fall decor to cover every surface kind of experience.

It’s totally fine to go all out with your decor in a day, of course, if that’s what you enjoy the most. But it’s just never been how I like to roll.

I’m a slow and gradual, take my time to savor it, experience all of the senses, one texture, one new layer at a time kind of gal.

With the chill in the air now as I wake up and the need to put on socks to walk through the house to begin the day, I started making a fall playlist to set a cozy fall state-of-mind.

Because in my world, even though pumpkins may not find their way to my porch until October, it is never too soon to start getting in the mood for FALL NESTING, ya know? That’s happening.

What mood do you want to set for your home this fall? A cozy playlist just might inspire you. I’ll share my fall playlist, below.

    Throughout the day you will find me listening to Smoooth Jazz, Contemporary Christian Music and Classics from the 60’s and 70’s. I’m eclectic just like my home.

    Fall is still far from me in Georgia. I do look forward to changing out front porch plants from ferns to chrysanthemums and pumpkins mid September.

    Hard for me to get into Fall, as much as I would like it… It’s still HOT (high 90’s with 100+ index) here in South Texas… but I can dream a bit with your lovely ideas!!

    July was so very hot that I stayed indoors most of it. Now August has been nicer temps and I’m enjoying being outdoors, so no, I’m not ready for fall yet. Altho it is one of my favorite seasons. Hope the glitches get fixed soon. Miss your posts. Glad it wasn’t your health or one of your loved ones’.

    I bought “The Inspired Room” and love it! Even the cover is so pretty. I haven’t seen your other books at our local bookstore (I only buy from amazon – the great impersonal giant – when I can’t find a book I want), but I’ll keep checking.

    I miss your Saturday post that includes other bloggers. Welcome back! I have been ‘styling my mantle’ In the family room, changing door wreaths to fall motifs, changing centerpieces, and adding lots of candles!

    Fall is slow to come in AZ but when it does I love to weekends to drive and see the leaves changing.
