With the end of September approaching, we here at the Village have been super excited for how dang pretty Rexburg becomes this time of year. And with the new season comes so many new ways to decorate your apartment! If you’re looking for ways to cozy up your apartment in preparation for the colder weather, look no further. Here are 6 stylish ways to give your home that perfect fall touch.
Number one on our list is to light a candle, because how could you not? Keep in mind some of the classic fall scents, like pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, and cider if you want to add a little spice to your apartment. It’s by far the easiest way to add a little autumnal spirit into your home.
You can purchase nearby candles at Walmart, Target, and Bath & Body Works (latter two located in Idaho Falls). You could also purchase some online – in fact, if you purchase at Bath & Body Works website this week, you can get 20% off your entire order with the purchase code: WELCOMEHOME.
Not into candles? You can always purchase a warmer and wax melts at the store to get those same smells into your home without the open flame. Or maybe you want to go a little more natural – why not use essential oils to spruce up the place?
Want to spruce up your living room a little bit? Add a fall-themed throw pillow and a cozy blanket. You can get something neutral like this pumpkin throw from Walmart and pair it with a more colorful blanket. Mix and match those classic burnt oranges, deep reds, and golden yellows – and remember, fuzzy blankets are an absolute must for optimal coziness.
What says getting into the fall spirit better than an autumnal wreath? Head over to AC Moore or another shop with craft items and grab a circular frame. Wrap some orange leaves around it, or use a glue gun to pepper it with small decorative pumpkins or apples, and boom – you have seasonally-relevant decor right at your front door.
Another idea is to grab a new doormat to welcome your guests with. Purchase a classic “thankful” mat, or even DIY one yourself – need some inspiration? How about this cheeky Halloween-themed one.
Finally, add a couple of pumpkins on the porch and you’ve got yourself a beautiful autumnal greeting for every visitor entering your home.
Next on our list is to create a fall centerpiece for your table. One simple way to accomplish this would be to fill a basket, wooden dish, or clear glass container with decorative apples, gourds, or pumpkins (or a combo of all three!).
Or maybe you prefer to take care of plants year-round! Another idea would be to have a floral centerpiece with in-season flowers, like the black-eyed Susan, orange mums, and the “false sunflower.”
Who doesn’t love a good pair of fairy lights? Head over to the store and grab some fairy lights to hang up around your apartment! Whether it’s a standard set of white lights or another fun color, adding these subtle strings definitely adds cozy vibes to any apartment.
Or you could go for a couple sets of Halloween colors – orange, green, and purple – and start prepping for spooky season early.
Last on our list is to try new recipes! Let’s be real. All the best recipes are reserved for the colder months. Pies. Soups. Slow cooker meals. Or this pumpkin pull-apart bread from The Wood and Spoon. Can you say mouthwatering?
Maybe you’re not into baking, and would rather prefer drinks – it’s never too early to make hot cocoa! Add flavored creamer and some marshmallows to make it more decadent, and top everything off with a little cinnamon or pumpkin spice. Regardless of whether you’re making stew in the crock pot or drinks on the stove, the smells alone coming from your kitchen will immediately make your home feel 100% cozier.
That’s everything, folks! This has been 6 stylish ways to give your home that perfect fall touch. Good smells, decor, lighting, and more will always make your home feel cozier. We hope you’re looking just as forward to October as we are here at the Village!
