Come September 1st, I am ready to rock and roll with fall decorations. I often find myself turning the AC down a notch, wrapping myself in a blanket, lighting my pumpkin spiced candle, and pretending it’s fall. You can pretend you’re anywhere with the right tools and mindset :) Just searching through Pinterest for autumn home decor has me extremely inspired. All I can dream of is listening to the sound of leaves crunching beneath my feet, sweater weather, and the sound of the wind whistling through the trees on a crisp autumn Saturday morning while strolling the farmer’s market for fresh flowers. So much midwest autumn nostalgia, y’all.
I find the best way to channel fall vibes is by decorating my home and living like it is autumn, even if I have to be inside right now. The right scent, colors, and homey feels of faux blankets and pumpkin pillows really set the mood.
I love the faux flowers & little white pumpkin in the below living room. The white fluffy blanket adds a cozy warm feeling to the interior and I love the natural light. Adding faux flowers and little pumpkins to a room are such an easy way to make a place more festive. Pottery Barn sells some cute recycled Pumpkin globes! If you’re looking for some great interior decor, I recommend checking out Pottery Barn (clearly my favorite), or for less expensive items: Hobby Lobby or Homegoods.

Another easy way to make your room look a little more autumn is by adding faux fur. Faux fur is so cozy and will be perfect use for fall through winter. If you like a more rustic look or have a leather couch like we do, you might enjoy these various colored pillows. If you’re more of a modern chic person, a white faux fur pillow might fit your style better. And if you love a cozy blanket perfect for snuggling, reading, lounging, and napping like I do, this throw might be your new best friend. And it fits with all different decor ;)

Now the easiest way to make your home feel a little more like autumn is by lighting a pumpkin candle. Duh. I bought a little candle from Homegoods last year and it hasn’t burned out! Such a great $7 buy :) This year I’m working a three wick candle from Bath and Body works. I love how intense the scent is. My favorite favorite favorite candle company is Nest and they also have a Pumpkin Chai candle. YUM! If you like the look of a candle more than the smell, I recommend checking out Birch candles. We have two on our dining room and they are perfect year round! They make our table look a little more sophisticated.

The best part about Autumn Decor is that its in season all the way through Thanksgiving. Pumpkins, bright colored leaves, and fall harvest florals all make for great centerpieces :) Aaaaand to wrap this up, I’m including a cozy little niche below purely because the idea of it right now makes me so utterly happy. Enjoy your last day of summer guys! Tomorrow is FALL :)
