10 Ideas To Make Your Home Cozy And Warm (October 2019)
10 autumn decor ideas to make your place cozy and warm
making your place warm and cozy for autumn
Apartment decorations are something proven to influence your psychical state of being. It can affect our mood, productivity and our ability to think positively. Autumn is that kind of a season that often doesn’t make our minds happy and content. I mean the weather is pretty bad, it’s raining often, everything seems grey and desaturated.
That’s why it feels so good to think about how we can make our place warm and sort of distanced from the weather outside. Just imagine coming home to a place with concrete walls, no furniture, strong minimalism style and cold colours.
Then imagine walking in to a place filled with orange blankets, nice smelling candles on the table and reading a book under a warm duvet. The smell of Hokkaido soup is in the air, cinnamon and a mug of chocolate is just waiting for you on a bedside table.. Don’t tell tell me you wouldn’t feel happy just a bit more.
Read this post for more autumn decor ideas to make your place extra cozy and warm.
1. candles are the necessity
Candles influence our smell that is strongly connected to how we feel. It’s important to choose a candle that makes you feel a certain way. There are plenty of them to choose from! Many companies are giving fancy names to their candles, but most of the times the actual candle smell basic. There’s nothing better than choosing the one in store.
Candles can also help as in aromatherapy so choosing wisely is a key. If you want to know more about aromatherapy, read our interview with an aromatherapist HERE.
Candles nowadays have very pretty designs, that sometimes makes us buy them just because of that. There’s nothing wrong of that, after all, good design also makes you feel cozier than something plain.
2. Autumn Snacks
What is better than snacks, right? Only those that are themed! I absolutely adore going out for picnics or just eating out.
My memories of autumn mostly consists of being at my grandma’s, doing picnics at flowery garden, eating apples and doing gardening.
You should try to do that too. Go out when it’s nice and bring some food with you!
3. Blankets, even on the table
Blankets are one of those essential things everybody imagines when they think of autumn and home decor at the same time.
And it’s not just for fun.
Blankets have a special place in my heart, I love to get cozy and warm (I’m cold all the time haha).
Blankets are however not only good for couches and sofas, but also for tables.
Putting a blanket as a decoration on your table make your dining place definitely warmer!
4. Buy And Read More Books
Books are something we all forgot about in this computer era. But we should find some time for them, even on a reader.
For me, books always were something I associated with fall or autumn weather, so this is pretty easy choice for me.
Why read books in autumn? Because they’re so good when it’s pouring rain and cold outside.
5. Decorate your front door!
Decorating your home is one thing, but why not taking that to your front door?
It just seems like a good idea to come home after work/school or whatever challenges you through the day and see nice, welcoming door.
Let’s give it a shot and try that. What do you think?
6. Buy More Plants
Plants, plants, plants. They’re one of those things I love to be around. I love to buy, replant, and grow them. I have so many of them because I always buy something for cheaper price at the vgrocery store.
They will make the home definitely more cozy and sort of alive, if you get me.
Plants are also making the air more humid which you will appreciate in winter months when the air is very dry and all the bacteria in the air.
7. Decorate your apartment with pumpkins
This is kind of a basic tip, really. But this is kind of what the essence of October, or autumn is. Pumpkins.
Pumpkins for food, as a decoration, they’re lovely and cute. They taste great and look even better, wherever you put them.
8. Set the mood at the table
And we’re at the table again. Buying new cutlery, and table decor will refresh the way you are dining.
I recommend also buy napkins in warm colours, put candles on the table.. Set the mood there. Having a couple of pillows on chairs would also make the room more accesible.
9. Change up your pillows!
Pillows are truly essential for fall mood, as I was saying before. Sometimes people like to change them up a bit, to give their living space more of seasonal charm and feel.
I recommend doing this too. I bet you have plenty of designs, so there’s no need to buy new ones. There’s also a possibility of doing a little DIY and creating your own!
10. Add Aesthetic Autumn Wall Decoration
Is there something more popular then wall decorations? I don’t think so. We love to decorate those concrete walls with paintings, our creations, or wallpapers.
But what about creating a mood board? You know, putting all of the things we like on autumn, printing the images and basically scrapbooking them onto a wall.
I’m a big fan of this idea and would love to buy one of these metal “pin boards” where you can put your polaroids.
