As we approach the cooler autumn weather, you might start to wonder how to make your living space more cozy and "fall-like." Whether it’s your home, apartment or even dorm room, you can always (pumpkin) spice up your living area!


Here are a few things to consider:

  1. Incorporate crisp whites and neutrals such as browns and creams

  2. Invest in quality throw blankets to cozy up your space and add texture

  3. Use gold light lamps instead of bright white overhead lights. This allows for a warm, calming feel

  4. Incorporate autumn flowers or leafy fall colored plants

  5. Find your favorite fall scent and burn a candle to make your place smell welcoming and festive

  6. Decorate with fall items such as pumpkins, leafy garland, wreaths or mums

  7. Incorporate textures such as suede, leather, fur, wood-grain, etc.

Do you appreciate spending double the money on both fall and winter decorations? I would presume not. But how can we make a style last all the way through to Christmas? It’s as simple as keeping it simple. You can mix the fall and winter styles just by making a color scheme that fits both seasons.


Consider using crisp whites with gold accent pieces. You can incorporate winter items such as christmas stockings and holiday decorations while keeping it in your personal color scheme. As seen below, you can likely notice the use of both fall and winter vibes here.


Consider adding a fall pine tree. This is an opportunity to use a famous Christmas decoration and turn it into a pumpkin-filled, fall design piece. Plus, when December rolls around, you can choose to leave the tree as is, or simply redecorate with ornaments and candy canes!

Some great places to look for these rustic fall and winter interior design pieces include:

  • Pottery Barn

  • Halfway Wholeistic

  • Anthropology

  • Etsy

  • Home Goods

  • The Quiet Moose (a Michigan favorite)

The opportunities are endless. Be creative and craft up your own seasonal style this year. If you don't know where to begin, get inspired by the fall 2022 lookbook on Pottery Barn’s website.
