5 Ways To Cozy-Up Your Home This Fall

Who doesn't love fall? The scents of cinnamon, apple and pumpkin along with the rich, golden colours of earth surrounding. It is impossible to resist the cable-knit sweaters and boots, the crackling fire and one of the most important, hot chocolate!

We know that cozy isn’t just a look, but it’s a feeling of comfort and warmth. There are many ways to create this look and feeling in your home. So, we're here to help you cozy-up your home for fall in 5 simple ways.

1. Throw blankets and pillows 

Surrounding yourself with something cozy will instantly change the way you feel.  A soft throw and pillow in arm's reach makes it easy to curl up in with a good book! This combination is comforting, but also helps to add texture to the room.

2. Candles, candles and more candles!

Never underestimate the power from the flicker of a flame! It is relaxing and mesmerizing even. Lighting a few candles will create a sense of warmth in the room. We're big fans of the Foxhound Collection. ;) 

3. Fall decor

Create a wall grouping with pictures! Find small frames and fill them with fall sentiments, black-and-white photos and even leaves. Also, it's close to the arrival of friends and family for the holidays, so fall is the perfect time to find old family photos to create a gallery wall. Everyone will love revisiting these memories with you!

4. Decorate the front porch

 

This gorgeous front porch was featured in HGTV Magazine. Having lots of pumpkins and gourds completed with potted mums gives your porch the festive look. We love the idea of adding vinyl house numbers to a pumpkin.  Add a simple fall wreath to top it off. Warm and welcoming!

5. Dress up that mantel!

 

Add fall colours to your mantel for a good price! Blogger Christina of The Frugal Homemaker used a $2 wood crate, a white stool found at a yard sale, and an old screen. These added extra dimension to her fall mantel. Don't forget to turn on the fireplace and curl up on a chilly night!

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving weekend is coming up and we're excited! A day dedicated to gathering and celebrating all of our blessings. It is a chance to give thanks for life, family, friends, and of course, food! In Cape Breton, we love to celebrate with food, especially dessert. We have a couple dessert favourites from Sally's Baking Addiction to share with you. 

Honeycrisp Apple Sangria  - We included this delicious drink ;)

How are you celebrating Thanksgiving? Share with us!
