As the months get cooler, you’ll want to make sure that your decor is cosy and comforting. While a coastal or beach finish is perfect for summer, there are some affordable ways you can change it up through fall. Remember, soft furnishings (which are easy to store away) are your friend!
1. Layer textiles using blankets
Whether you’re layering over sofas or beds, these blankets will add depth to a room. Plus, you can be selective around color – opt for plaid if you really want to get that Country House aesthetic! Shop fall blankets here.
2. Invest in candles for an atmospheric cosy space
As the days get shorter, you’ll find yourself spending more time indoors. Make time in the evenings feel warm and special with the flicker of candle light. You can buy electric ones or real ones with scents of fall.

Tartan is the perfect way to go from country farmhouse to Scottish castle! A little tartan will also add depth – and don’t be afraid of reds! Shop blankets here.
