There’s just something about fall, isn’t there? It’s such a comforting season. Things slow down a bit. The leaves slowly fall off the trees. We’re reminded how beautiful change can be.
And we start to mentally prepare for cooler weather (well most of us at least)! I love the warmer temps, but I also crave the cooler fall air around this time of year.
And I think what I’ve really discovered is that I like all the cozy vibes that fall brings to the table without the cold air. Cozy to me means a warm and inviting feeling of safety, security, peace, and love. And a cozy home is a home that hugs you and holds you a little tighter to ensure you feel that way all season long.
Cozy seems to be top of mind for me this season. It’s how I want my home to feel and how I plan to dress when the temps really do dip lower than 90 for the first time in months.
But it’s not the cooler weather I’m craving. It’s the security and peacefulness I want. So mother nature, if you’re listening, it’d be great if we could just stick with that perfect 75-80 degree fall day all season long! You know, the warm fall.
Anyways, all mother nature talk aside, my fall decor goal this season has really been warmth and coziness. I’ve pulled in warmer tones of the colors I have around my home, added texture and fresh baked goods, and am focused on ways to ensure my home is inviting and comforting.
I am a firm believer that you don’t need to change a lot throughout your home for each season. Just by adding a few pops and items here and there, you can achieve your desired look and feel if you’re strategic!
So I wanted to share 10 of my favorite fall must-haves with you so you can easily create a cozy home this fall too without going out and buying all the pumpkins you can find!
10 FALL DECOR MUST-HAVES FOR A COZY HOME THIS SEASON
This wreath screams fall and reminds me of an autumn sunset with its warm yellow hues. Can’t you just picture the warm sun kissing the fall trees and fields while you’re curled up under a nice warm blanket? I sure can!
I couldn’t help myself with these amber vases this year! I love colored glass, and amber always seems to help warm things up a bit!
By replacing a lot of my blue glass bottles with amber bottles, I was able to easily achieve a warmer look and feel without adding clutter to my home.
I love adding neutral fall touches to my home that scream ‘fall’ without all the orange. This adorable Paulownia Pumpkin from Cloth + Cabin is perfection! It’s nice and neutral and adds the perfect fall touch to any space.

Speaking of neutral pumpkins, these small white harvest pumpkins are the perfect addition to your home this season! I placed mine in an old dough bowl on my kitchen table for a bit of a neutral, whimsical fall feel.
But you could use them anywhere! I may just have to grab a second set!
Another way I love to add cozy fall touches to my home is through signs! When you find a sign with a script font like this and a quote that gives you all the warm and fuzzy feels, it’s like adding a layer of cozy to your home without realizing it!
Sometimes, little quotes can transport us to that hopeful, warm, and cozy place we daydream about!
Now if this pillow doesn’t scream sophisticated cozy, I don’t know what does. If I saw this pillow on a couch or chair somewhere, I’d gravitate towards it so quickly.
This pillow plus a good throw and a great read, and you’ve got cozy! And while this definitely adds that warm and cozy vibe, you can leave this out all year long!
Another way to ensure your home is cozy and welcoming for the season is to make sure your guests feel welcome from the second they arrive!
Creating a welcoming entryway is a perfect way to do this. Place a cute and festive doormat over a buffalo check rug and add some spillover pumpkins, and you’ve got yourself some quick and easy fall vibes!
Who doesn’t want to be greeted with this??
I love this table runner for fall! I have it layered over a burlap runner on my dining room table, and it’s the perfect neutral pop! The rust-colored accents give it a fall vibe without it being too in-your-face!
My fall color palette is pulling in all the warmed up blush tones and plums this season, so this throw is everything. The warm and soft colors, the texture, and the tassels are perfection. It’s such a great throw to toss over a chair (maybe with the Natalie Pillow??).
It’s beautiful and functional at the same time.
Speaking of texture, have you been seeing all the cloth and velvet pumpkins out there this season? I’m here for them all! The velvet ones especially pull in an added layer of warmth, and with all the neutral colors you could choose from, they’re the perfect addition to any space to create a cozy fall vibe without causing clutter!
I COULD GO ON AND ON…
I could go on and on about all the decor I’m loving for fall this season, but I’m also all about decorating the home intentionally! Make sure you focus on a theme you’re going for and choose pieces to incorporate with a purpose.
The last thing you want is to go buy all the on-trend fall decor items only to realize they’re not your style anyways! You can tell when your home is full of things you love and full of things other people love. Make sure you incorporate your favorites so your home can love you back!
