And just like that – there’s a chill in the air, it’s getting darker outside, and we feel like bundling up. It’s fall, baby. Let’s get cozy! We’re sharing our Favorite 5 Cozy Fall Home Essentials that easily and transition from one season to the next, and are multi-purpose all while being healthy for you and the environment.
HOW DO I DECORATE FOR FALL?
When you want to update your home for the fall and incorporate all that you appreciate about Green Interior Design, bring in Natural Earth Elements and Colors to help you feel more grounded, and take note of how each item is made and what it’s made of.
FALL EARTH ELEMENTS INCLUDE:
- Organic Shapes
- Soft and Textured Warm Fabrics
NEUTRAL FALL COLORS INCLUDE:
- Rusty Copper
- Heather Grey
- Golden Yellow
- Woody Brown
- Warm White
- Accent colors like deep blue or green.
When you decorate for fall, let it be a reflection of your natural surroundings, whether you’re by the beach, near a tree filled canyon or out in the dusty desert. Bring those colors and elements into your home.
So whether your seasonal decor style is super subtle or more is more…
Here are our TOP 5 COZY FALL FAVORITES to make you and your home feel warm and cozy this fall.
1. COZY FALL HOME ESSENTIAL:
ORGANIC COTTON THROW BLANKET
When it’s chilly, there’s nothing better than bundling up with a super soft blanket, and this one is long enough to cover your toes too! We are in love with these supersoft Organic Cotton blankets from Coyuchi.
Bonus points for being GOTS Certified! GOTS stands for The Global Organic Textile Standard, which is the toughest organic textile standard stamp of approval for all phases of the production supply chain – including fiber and textile processing, environmental, social, economic.
Our go-to this season is the spice blanket which looks beautiful as we’re curled up on a warm white sofa.
2. COZY FALL HOME ESSENTIAL:
NON-TOXIC MOODY CANDLE
As we’re now spending more and more time inside, especially as the nights become longer, candles are a great way to layer in that coziness factor and cue your circadian rhythm that it’s time to wind down before bed. What better way to get in the mood than to fill the air with the seasonal scents like Smoky Cinnamon, Spiced Pumpkin or Olive.
Soy candles are a healthy alternative because most traditional candles are made with paraffin wax, which is a bleached petroleum waste product which turns into a carcinogen when burned. Also, the wicks produce high levels of smoke.
We’ve raved about our love for PF Candles before, but we have to share again. This small business from L.A. creates soy candles that are vegan, cruelty-free and phthalate-free. The Terra Soy Candle is cool because once the candle has burned down, the terra cotta pot can be reused as a planter for your succulents.
3. COZY FALL HOME ESSENTIAL:
LUXURIOUS LINEN ROBE
We know the feeling of not wanting to get up in the morning when it’s so soft and warm in bed. Please, don’t make me get up!
Who says you have to get dressed? Wrap yourself in this eco-friendly French Flax Linen Robe by Bed Threads that feels just like your bedding. Sip your morning coffee in the sun and slowly start your day.
This robe is a perfect combination of classic and casual with effortless elegance, that easily transitions from summer into fall, then back into spring again. There are so many colors to choose from, but our favorite is this Rust, but the White, Oatmeal and Charcoal are so tempting.
Bed Threads is an awesome company. They’re 100% carbon neutral and they adhere to ethical working conditions for their farmers and suppliers. We love that their packaging is plastic-free!
Linen has so many benefits and is one of our go-to fabrics because it’s a low maintenance, sustainable natural fiber, making it long lasting and eco-friendly. It’s breathable, hypoallergenic and highly durable, and just like us – resilient and gets better with age!
4. COZY FALL HOME ESSENTIAL:
ORGANIC SHAPED MUG
This mug by Fringe Studio is our new office fave these days. It’s something small that starts our day off great. The speckled glaze combined with the unfinished stoneware base gives this hand cast mug a beautiful organic feel.
The design is a blend of both Hyggea and Wabi-Sabi, and fits so perfectly in your hands with the 2 dimples, while also warming them up. It’s great for coffee, tea, cacao, matcha – even soup!
Get creative when we’re not using it. It can double as a pencil holder, a flower vase or a toothbrush cup!
5. COZY FALL HOME ESSENTIAL:
WARM THROW PILLOW
There’s no greater or more inexpensive way to change up your home decor than with throw pillows. Other than painting the room, adding new pillows is the easiest and has the best potential of giving you some real bang for your buck.
We’ve been long time fans of Jaipur Living, not only because of their beautiful collections of rugs, pillows and poufs each year, but also because of their support of women artisans and kid’s education in India.
For a simple fall refresh, work in some earthy colors we talked about earlier, pick your pattern and go for some texture that feels soft and cozy. To step up your pillow game, a little variety goes a long way. Stack a couple pillows together, and opt for a smaller and lower lumbar pillow to sit in front for added comfort and style.
