Faux Fur Blanket

When the brisk breeze that’s beating against your window is simply too much to bear, snuggle up in a comfy, cozy faux-fur throw. Not only will the plush wrap warm you up physically, but the soft texture and rich hues will also warm up your interiors for the season.

Rustic Roundup

Combine the classics of the season for a timeless focal point on your fall table. Take inspiration from this stunning centerpiece, and marry mini pumpkins, tufts of cotton and pine cones for an autumnal decor staple that will last years.

Fresh-Cut Firewood

Whether you own a functioning fireplace or not, utilizing fresh firewood in your decor will leave guests feeling warm and toasty inside. Built-ins offer prime parking for your wood, and we love how the logs look here, adding texture to the surrounding snow-white walls.

Scents of the Season

I need very little convincing to pull out my prized, PSL-scented candles once September rolls around. Relatable? Thought so. But if you ever tire of that same-old, pumpkin smell (It’s a longshot, I know!), try out other invigorating scents of the season, such as hazelnut, amber vanilla, candied cranberry and tobacco.

Flannel Sheets

My rule of thumb: when I pull flannel from my closet, it’s time to put flannel on my bed. Flannel sheets are ultra soft and totally stylish. And the best part? They're Frenchie approved.

Fiery Fall Setting

Sweater weather calls for spicy table settings, and this one is serving up some serious seasonal inspiration. Copy its classic color palette by utilizing crips autumn shades like pumpkin, ivory and rich mustard. Don’t forget to incorporate warm wood or woven accents, too!

Pillows + The Pit

Give yourself a snuggly spot to take in the changing leaves and chit chat with friends and family. Arrange a set of Adirondack chairs around your fire pit, paired with plush pillows and throw blankets galore.

Season's Greetings

Usher in autumn with a proper, personalized greeting via a DIY doormat.

Warm Wicker Baskets

The warm, natural wicker color will instantly add a sense of cozy to your casa. Plus, what better place to store your many pillows and throws? Add one by the bed or couch, and it never hurts to have one outside, too!

Metal + Mums

Mums are a must for fall, but that goes without saying, no? Rather than stick them in a typical terra-cotta pot, opt for a tin metal garden pot instead. Opting for this silvery metal container is a pretty, cool-toned alternative that’s perfect for those partial to blues and greens in their home. Pair with sage pumpkins, soft brown pine cones and bright-white blooms to mimic this classic fall look.

Lanterns Light the Way

Seasonal lighting, made simple. Warm orange and ivory candles stun and shine in a trio of bronze lanterns, creating a classic, autumnal entrance for the front porch. Bonus: you can switch out the orange for red, green or blue for an easy transition to winter holidays.

Nods to Nature

Whimsical, woodsy accessories are just part of the fun when it comes to decorating for sweater weather. This rustic vignette showcases a cute, carved squirrel alongside a deer-printed planter.

Personalized Pumpkins

Get playful with your pumpkins this year! Designate a craft day that’s dedicated to dolling up some gorgeous gourds around the house. This pair glitters, making a glam first impression upon guests in this entryway.

Fruits of the Harvest

Make magic with seasonal fruits, vegetables and nuts. Artichokes, grapes and plumcots create a unique centerpiece comprised of cool-tones, perfect for classic, blue and white chinoiserie serving dishes.

Grab Golden Hues

When in doubt, gravitate towards gold this season. The hue is pure magic, complementing any color and all design styles. Join me in becoming totally smitten with the velvet teal, cognac and gold design situation in this sitting room. So good.

Fiery Fall Underfoot

Sweater season calls for swapping out summery white and beachy blues. It’s time to heat things up, people! Easily pull in warmth with a fiery-hued runner. The fun, tribal print pictured here features oranges, yellows and reds. Kind of reminiscent of the fall foliage, don’t you think?

Warm Metallics

Sticking with sleek silver has the potential to leave you out in the cold during the cooler months, friends. Bring warmth into your home by way of brass, gold or copper metallic accessories. Not to mention, the glam-factor is at an all-time-high with these glimmering candlesticks.

Suit-Up in Sweaters

While you’re wrapping up in your fave sweater, you might as well extend that same courtesy to your mantel. It’s the polite thing to do, people! Cozy and creative, sweater-clad vases add loads of character to a mantel and easily transition through fall and winter. Swap out the mini pumpkins for glittering globe ornaments, and voila!

Spicy Seats

Gather inspo from seasonal flavors to create extra-cozy seating throughout your home. Piles of rich orange, sultry merlot and deep plum pillows have the power to warm up even the most neglected corner of your home.

Copious Coffee

A must-have for sweater-weather: all of the coffee, y’all! All of it. Stock up and style-up a corner of your kitchen with a DIY coffee bar. It’ll keep your home cute and, most importantly, caffeinated through even the chilliest of autumn days.
