There’s nothing like the comforting feeling of a warm, cozy home on a cool Fall day. Creating an atmosphere in your home that accomplishes this feeling involves more than a few seasonal decorations. Whether you’re selling your home this season and want to attract the perfect buyer, or you just want to improve the look and feel of your home for the season, we have the advice you need to make your home feel like Fall.
The obvious way to bring the season to life in your home is to change up your decorations. While you don’t want to – or have to – go overboard, there are classic, simple ways to decorate your home for the season. Try some of our favorites below:
- Put out some soft, plush blankets to snuggle up with on the couch
- Get decorations that fit with your home’s color and existing décor
- Add in warm accent lights for those cold, cloudy days (lamps, string lights, etc.)
- Replace your Summer annual flowers with Fall ones in your planters
- Lay out new, warmly-colored rugs
These are just a few ways to add simple décor items to make your home feel more warm and cozy!
Scents are a powerful and easy way to transform the feeling in your home. For Fall, savory, warm, spicy scents are our top choice. Think hot apple cider, pumpkin spice everything, woodsy pine, bonfire, and vanilla are great places to start. You can get these scents to permeate throughout your home through various methods, including:
- Reed diffusers
- Plug-in air fresheners
- Scented sachets
Whatever your preferred method, we hope you invite all the great scents of Fall into your home this year!
Finally, it’s time to bring the taste of Fall to life in your home! The cooler weather that comes with the change of seasons in Minnesota makes the perfect condition for warm, hearty recipes (hotdish, anyone?!). When you bake a meal in your home, you truly allow your senses to be overcome with the season. Here are some of our favorite recipes that we invite you to try!
- Harvest Chicken Casserole
- Stuffed Acorn Squash
- Pumpkin-Chorizo Pizza
- Tuna Noodle Casserole
- Caramel Apple Pie
You can create a wonderful meal with any of these dishes, and we hope you give them a try and enjoy the great scents and flavors that they bring you.
We wish everyone in our community a very happy Fall season! We hope this post inspires you to bring the season to life in your home so you can truly enjoy it with your family and friends.
