Now that we’re fully settled into the chillier months, it’s the perfect time to make some cozy fall decor updates that instantly warm up every room in the home. And there’s no need for a complete overhaul. All you need are a few simple refreshes that will get your rooms ready for sweater weather and the colder months to come. Think a nice layering of natural textures, inviting hues, and, of course, a pop of warmth. Read on for our stylish tips for a quick autumn refresh that’s bound to keep you snug all through fall and the winter months.
1. Warm Up With Natural Textures
When it comes to easy cozy decor updates that lend huge comfort to your spaces, natural textures are a no-brainer.
Consider working in rustic woods accents and decor, such as a side table or a pair of chairs, adding a plush wool rug, hanging linen drapers, or even filling a vase with dried pampas grass. These tactile elements have a cozy feel that, when layered all together as in this inviting bedroom, can play up a majorly welcoming vibe.Shop This Room
2. Get Bold With Brass Accents
A great way to add warmth is through metallic accents that exude a cozy shine, such as brass and gold accessories.
Consider switching out your vases for ones in brass and gold or adding in a few decorative objects to your table surfaces. Another easy and stylish way to work these warm touches? We love swapping out old hardware for these cozy metals. Whether it’s updating the drawer pulls on a side table or the kitchen cabinets or pulling in an accent chair that has leg caps, these metals will instantly warm up your space.Shop This Room
3. Pile on the Luxe Layers
We don’t have to tell you that fall and winter call for lots of layering! The more tactile accents you pile and layer together, the more luxurious and cozy your home will feel. Plus, they’ll give you the perfect place to snuggle on all those fall and winter nights.
Consider layering a sheepskin on top of a warm-hued traditional rug and piling velvet, hide, and furry pillows along with plush throw blankets on your sofa. And speaking of sofa, if you’re ready for a major fall update, a leather sofa will help to play up an extra rustic cabin vibe. Or if your style leans luxe, go for a velvet sofa, which has a way of retaining heat while still giving off a super chic look.Shop This Room
4. Opt for a Warm Palette
When you’re switching up your furnishings and accents, keep the palette in mind. With fall, you can’t go wrong with autumnal hues that naturally play up a super cozy and inviting mood.
Consider mixing reds, oranges, and browns alongside your brass and gold accents for a warm and lavish palette. If you prefer a more soothing, grounded feel for your rooms, go with earth tones that are a warm visual contrast to the crisp coolness of the weather outdoors. It will help make you feel especially snuggly in your home.Shop This Room
5. Add Plush Bedroom Accents
Your bedroom is probably one of the most important spaces to curl up during fall and winter. Make sure your bed is cozy and warm by switching up your bedding for colder weather.
Consider piling on plush pillows and blankets. Sateen sheets can feel luxurious and are incredibly warm, perfect for chilly nights. Meanwhile, a few supremely soft and cloud-like pillows can truly transform your sleep for the better during the seasons.
Beyond the bed, make sure to warm up the rest of your bedroom with equally cozy layers. Add a rug under your bed to make sure you have a warm foundation, pull in pillows and throws for a reading chair, and add a nice brass bedside lamp, all of which will round out your bedroom and make it feel fuller and all the more cozy.Shop This Room
6. Create Moody Contrasts
Try a new coat of paint in a darker, moodier hue. A deep color can turn any room into a cozy retreat instantly, whether you paint the whole room or one accent wall.
Consider painting your living spaces a moody gray or charcoal to play up an intimate vibe. It’ll turn these spaces into rooms you’ll want to hibernate in all winter long. Another way to add coziness is to contrast your dark walls with warm woods and brass tones. Not ready for dark walls? Opt for a statement piece in dark wood and mix it with lighter hues for the same effect.Shop This Room
