Cozy Home Accents to Add Fall Warmth

Bunting is a cozy way to welcome people into your home for fall.

The crisp, cool air of autumn invites us to retreat indoors to the comfort of our homes. Swap out your summer brights for cozier home décor and wrap yourself in the warmth of the season. Here are five home accents that will add fall warmth to your home.

1. A stack of vintage board games

A spirited competition between family members is the perfect accompaniment to cool weather. Cozy up around the coffee table and break out your favorite vintage board games. Light a fire, grab your favorite hot beverage and get ready for a festive evening with loved ones.

2. New flannel sheets

Stow away your summer linens and add your extra blankets on top of a new set of soft flannel sheets. A flannel sheet set in a preppy plaid pattern is a comforting way to bring fall into your bedroom.

3. Decadent candles

The scents of fall trigger happy memories of years' past: your mom's apple crisp, pumpkin spice coffee with friends, and even pine trees can remind us of baking with family or an afternoon at the pumpkin patch. Glade candles come in several enveloping fragrances inspired by autumn. Try placing one in a large glass vase and surrounding it with shelled nuts or acorns for an extra touch.

4. Thick knit blankets

Thick cable knit blankets are ideal for an evening catching up on your favorite shows. A colorful mix of orange, red and purple blankets in a basket is an easy way to add a pop of color and coziness. You'll be ready to snuggle up at a moments notice when the chilly October air rolls in.

5. Welcoming bunting

A small string of bunting is a classic fall accent that you can easily make. Gather colorful leaves or festive patterned paper, cut out triangular shapes, and attach to a strand of string or thick yarn. Hang bunting in your kitchen or entryway for an instant inviting atmosphere.
