Look closely - here and there, the leaves are beginning to change and we have certainly had some crisp mornings. This means it's a wonderful time to make your home cozy for fall! We're talking about creating a space that invites you to wrap yourself in a luxe throw, light your favorite candle and lose yourself in a good book. Does it sound lush? That's because it is! But it doesn't have to break the bank; it's totally possible to make your house cozy on a budget. Read on for our top tips for how to make your home cozy with fall decor.
Having warm feet is the first step to feeling cozy. Consider adding high pile rugs to your living room and bedroom to up the coziness. If you want to start with less of a commitment, smaller rugs work great as layer pieces. Slippers are another great way to achieve warm and toasty feet without splurging. We suggest adding a basket of slippers by your front door so that you and your guests can feel comfortable from the moment you walk in.

Adding luxurious blankets and pillows is a great way to make your house cozy on a budget. Layers like blankets and throws will add texture to your space, and adding even just one or two will go a long way to make your home feel cozy for the cooler weather. It's like putting on a warm, plush sweater, but for your living room.
Lighting a scented candle is one of the easiest ways to infuse your home with cozy fall aromas and warmth. We love the elegant sophistication of Simmered Cider by Thymes and Spicy Apple by Rosy Rings. Come in-store to give them a sniff - we're certain they will win you over!
Get inspired by the changing leaves and add fall warmth with color. Warm neutrals like tans, oatmeals, creams, and grays mix well with fall accent colors like deep reds, yellows, and oranges. To achieve this look you could add accent pieces, paint trim or simply create a cozy ambiance in your home by dimming the lights. Try switching out harsh overhead lighting with "warm" or "soft" compact fluorescent light bulbs.
