Cozy Fall Decor in MichiganDebra
Have you ever wondered what the number one home decor buzzword during fall and winter is? Well, even if you haven’t, we’re willing to bet you know what it is…
Yep, cozy. Just doing a quick Google search with something like “cozy fall decor” will bring up hundreds of awe-inspiring home decor looks. While we love to “oo” and “ahh” over these seriously swoon-worthy spaces, we understand that the average homeowner may not have the know-how to make these looks happen. That’s why we want to help you make fall 2018 your coziest season yet! In this blog we’ll go over a few quick and easy ways to instantly add that “cozy” factor to your home, just in time for cooler temps and warm cups of cocoa!
Here in Michigan we have many autumnal traditions. From cider house donuts, apple picking and pumpkin pie, downtown lights and visits to Frankenmuth, there’s no shortage of fall activities in Pure Michigan. From Ann Arbor to Walled Lake and Traverse City, Michiganders ride autumn breezes wholeheartedly! With this in mind, one of the easiest ways to add some cozy “umph” to your home is by displaying local treasures from your favorite fall-friendly places. Have you gone to a cider mill recently? A few well-placed apples in a painted dish will look inviting and, not to mention, yummy. Have you picked up a delicious pie lately? Displaying your dessert in a classic glass treat holder instantly adds a homespun touch to your kitchen or dining room. Many of these local jaunts sell handmade gifts, crafts, and goods. A little thoughtful creativity can go a long with with goods like flour stored in burlap sacks and fresh produce. While you’re out, why not snag some freshly fallen leaves and twigs to add to a centerpiece, floral arrangement, or display? (If you need help with a fall floral arrangement, our in-house floral designer can help!)
Always and forever, small wicks of with dancing flames are one of the best ways to inspire warmth and coziness in your home. Plus, candles aren’t just cozy to look at! With so many fall-scented candles out there you’ll have your home smelling like fallen leaves, roasted marshmallows, pumpkin scones and more! If open flames make you nervous, have you thought of wax-melts? There are also oodles of flameless candles on the market. There’s nothing quite like curling up under a warm blanket to watch the leaves fall with a few lit candles in tow. Just, please, don’t forget to blow them out!
Pumpkins & Gourds
Decorating your home for fall can be as easy as heading to your local pumpkin patch to grab a handful of local gourds. We love the look of layering various sized pumpkins on a dining room table or even placing itty bitty pumpkins inside glass containers for a fresh look. Pumpkins and gourds can definitely add the cozy factor you’re looking for this season and can make a statement right through Thanksgiving.
Wood, Nuts, and Bolts
Placing a trio of fresh-cut logs near a fireplace hearth instantly adds a touch of coziness to your space but, if you don’t have a fireplace, that doesn’t mean you have to forego the look altogether! Placing a distressed basket on your porch with pieces of wood will make your home look welcoming and friendly. Bonus: add a little extra something by tying the wood in twine! Scattering acorns throughout your home will add a dash of whimsy and can be a fun game for kids –find the acorns, anyone? Adding old photographs and nostalgic odds and ends to centerpieces, fireplace mantles, and end tables will also add to the cozy factor. Decorating for fall in the beautiful Great Lakes State is meant to be fun and easy. By following these simple solutions you’re bound to have the coziest home on the block this season!
