Anybody else as in love with fall as we are?! Crisp cool mornings, colorful leaves, and pumpkin spice everything are just a few of the hallmarks of this amazing season. To help get you in full fall mode, we’ve put together some quick and easy tips for getting all the cozy vibes this season.
Switch Up Your Scent
Okay, nothing says cozy like your favorite fall scents… cinnamony sweet delectables, fallen leaves, you name it! But for next-level coziness, check out our latest blend: Fireside Flannel! It will remind you of your favorite mountainside retreat cozied up by the campfire in a warm flannel blanket. With the crisp, fresh notes of Juniper Berry, Fir Needle, and Eucalyptus Dives, and the grounding notes of Virginian Cedarwood, Frankincense Carteri, and Vetiver, Fireside Flannel will remind you of nights spent next to the campfire. While Orange Essence, German Chamomile CO2, Neroli, and Ylang Ylang Extra provide a subtle sense of sweetness to round out this incredible new blend. Trust us, Fireside Flannel will give you all the cozy fall vibes.
Layer It Up
Fall fashion has something for everyone! Flannels and puffer vests for the outdoorsy look. Leggings and oversized sweaters for casual vibes. Button-ups and sweaters for that put-together office look. And the accessories! Boots, socks, scarves, and beanies offer the perfect chance to mix and match. Layers not only offer the ability to adapt when the weather can’t make up its mind but also the chance to get creative and nail that perfectly cozy look.
Swap Out the Accessories
As tempting as it is to make your home look like the fall decor section of your favorite craft store, chances are it’s a little too time consuming, not to mention expensive. By swapping out just a few key accessories instead, you can get all the fall feels without a big price tag. One of the easiest and simplest ways to go is with throw pillows and blankets. It’s a simple way to add warm colors and cozy textures to your space. Because nothing says fall quite like a chunky knit blanket or a faux fur throw pillow.
Did Someone Say… Mood Lighting?
Candles, fireplaces, a soft reading lamp… you name it! Nothing quite cozies up a space like a softly flickering amber glow. So bust out those candles and ready the lighter for fantastic fall lighting. But if open flames are a no-no for you (little kids, precocious cats, rental agreements… we get it), there are a few other ways to get that glow without any fire hazards. One simple way is to use a lower watt light bulb. Choose just a handful of lamps or main lights in the spaces you want to feel the coziest and swap those bulbs for a softer glow. And if you really want to pull out all the stops, you can always queue up a fireplace on Netflix (yes, that’s totally a thing). So cozy up with a good book, soft blanket, and enjoy an hour of the soft flickering and crackling of a fireplace.
Add Some Natural Accents
Cozy fall vibes can be as easy as a trip to the supermarket! With large bins overflowing with every size, shape, and color of pumpkin you could ever imagine, you can create fun and festive displays for your table, doorway or mantlepiece, all while picking up that week’s groceries!
