With the onset of cooler temps, changing leaves and pumpkin spice lattes that can only mean one thing….fall is in the air!! And with that changing up your decor to warmer and cozier colors, pillows and drapes brings all those fabulous feelings from outside in. Get that fire ready in the fireplace and snuggy up on the couch cause we’re gonna make your home a place you don’t wanna leave!
First up, let’s talk pillows….pillows are the easiest, cheapest and most dramatic change you can make. An entire room can completely transform JUST because of the pillows. Here are some I’m lovin right now that give that sippin hot cocoa feeling!
World Market’s Copper Velvet Throw Pillow on sale for only $6.99 they have emerald green and red too. All equally fabulous and ALL on sale right now. I’ma just repeat that, velvet pillows for only $6.99!!! I am planning my WM visit as we speak to load up on some of these puppies.
Fur or faux fur, always an incredible choice, but especially in the cooler months. World Market has Mongolian Fur pillows as well as faux fur, here is an ivory mongolian pillow on sale for $62.99 Luscious, luxurious and loads of texture…you can’t go wrong. Like butta.
A pillow that is both beautiful and has a great message. Especially with Thanksgiving right around the corner. It’s Target’s Grateful pillow for only $13.99 and would be beautiful with any of the pillows mentioned above. I could make a case for keeping this lovely around all year long.
I am adoring this one and you will probably see it in the very near future somewhere in my house. It’s World Market’s Green Marble Velvet Lumbar pillow on sale for $24.99. I mean let’s be real, who can resist a little gold glimmer?! Def not this girl!!
How about a few rugs to go along with these fab pillows?!
World Market’s Floral Tufted Rug is a stunner and has all of the deep jewel tones that are not only hot right now in design but give that warm cozy feel while still being an eye catcher. At $337.49 on sale for a 6×9 it’s a fab price for a hand tufted wool rug.
Love the look of a cowhide but don’t want the real deal? World Market has you covered with the Faux Ivory Cowhide rug, it’s got the exact same look and beautiful detail. Luxurious annnnnd eco friendly, what more could you ask for? You totally layer this bad boy too! A 5×6 is only $134.99 right now, SO much cheaper than a cowhide!
If you are looking to amp up the glam factor check out their Gold Faux Cowhide, the same as the ivory but with glamorous gold detailing in place of the beige. Eco friendly, shimmery say whaaaa?!?! This one’s $134.99 too!! Can’t you just see one or two of these in front of the fire?
Here is a lovely single sheepskin pelt, great on the floor in front of the fireplace, at the foot of the bed or thrown on the couch to give that cozy warm feel. Sheepskin is particularly good to use in seating when you have joint issues! It’s the sheepskin pelt from Pottery Barn. You can also find varying sizes at rugsusa and etsy, along with different colors!
And what room changeup for fall wouldn’t be complete without a few drape switch out suggestions?
I love velvets and silks or silk look alikes for the fall/winter months. Do you sense a recurring theme? Luxury, cozy, comfy and a hint of glam.
With that in mind here are Charcoal Velvet Drapes from World Market at $89.99 for the pair a bit spendy but SO worth it.
Ikea (order online from them)! You MUST check out their selection of velvet drapes! I have several as you can’t beat the price and they come with their own hemming tape for easy customization. At $49.99 a pair fo’get about it. They are called the Sanela Curtains and come in a variety of colors from ivory, to light teal to emerald green, to sapphire blue.
Or how about these midnight blue velvet blackout curtains from Overstock?! So gorgeous!!
Just making a few changes such as these will have you holiday, entertaining and fire snuggling ready. What’s your fave way to update your space for the fall/winter seasons?
And don’t forget to stay tuned, the Fall ORC challenge is starting THIS THURSDAY! And I can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on!! (wink wink nudge nudge)
