Decorating with Fall Pillows

I feel one of the best ways to update your home for any season is with pillows. 

Not only are they an economical way to change the feel of any room, but it’s just so easy!

Over the years I’ve collected and made pillow covers that I can easily use to update any room in my home.

And pillow covers are much easier to store than pillows.

Do you need a little inspiration?

Just take a look at the cozy fall decor pillows I found this year.

Fall Inspired Throw Blankets

Equally as easy as pillow covers, a fall inspired throw blanket can add texture and coziness to your home for the fall.

While Steph’s home still reflects her coastal style, her home is filled with amazing Fall Decorating Ideas.

Whether it’s a chunky knit, or a fun plaid throw, adding a throw blanket will instantly add a cozy vibe to your home for fall.

Fall Inspired Scents

Without a doubt, when I think of fall, I think of the fragrant aromas you only experience in the autumn season.

Scents immediately transport your thoughts to pleasant feelings you’ve experienced in the past.

Some of my favorite aromas for fall include, pumpkin spice, apple cider and pear hazelnut.

Not only do the aromas bring in that cozy vibe, but also the warm glow from the candle light.

Fall Home Decor for the Wall

While we often create FREE printable wall decor for the seasons. we’ve come across some cute ideas for this fall. 

Clearly, this wall art for fall will elevate the decor in your home this year.

Do you love a beautiful dining table for the seasons?

While we certainly do, however my sister-in-law, Fatima definitely out performs us in this area.

Her dining table is always set for every season and her collection is unbelievable.

In fact, Steph and I were talking about, going for a visit and spending an entire day styling her dining room table with her enormous collection of china and dinnerware.

Just to see how many variations we could come up with.

Seems like a fun challenge to me!

Fall Home Decor Ideas for the Kitchen

Last but not least, is decorating the kitchen with fall decor.

Clearly, it’s so easy to add a seasonal towel or tray to your kitchen to add that cozy fall feel.

I’ve got my eye on that cheetah print pumpkin towel!

It’s also the perfect place to bring in one of those fall scented candles.

And while we’re in the kitchen, let’s talk a little bit about fall food.

My mouth is already starting to water, just thinking about it.

Certainly as the weather cools, we look forward to those savory slow cooker meals. 

One of our favorite is Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili.
