Fall is in full swing which means it's time to switch out your summer decor with pieces that will cozy up the home. Some people change out rugs, pillows, drapery, and even art when the seasons change but I have a few tricks to get your pad feeling warm.

Adding a chunky knit throw to the edge of your bed , or over a chair will add warmth and texture. This tassel throw is from West Elm, but you can find hand made throws on Etsy, or try making one yourself. Our throw was made by my grandmother, I love to snuggle up in it, and enjoy a great book. Lately, its been my pal as I enjoy a Leave it to Beaver marathon every night, productivity killer, thanks Netflix.

Gourds can give your home an instant feeling of autumn. You can pick them up at your local market or harvest them from your own garden. They last forever so you can keep them around through Thanksgiving. And they are great outdoors or in. I love this idea from Perfectly Imperfect, if your pumpkins and gourds don't match your decor, paint them. here, they used chalk paint.

Try out some candles. When it starts getting dark earlier in the evening its nice to add the sparkle of some candles. I love pumpkin and apple cinnamon for fall. If you need a quick centerpiece, jazz up some plain pillars with an artichoke, or some asparagus.
