Utilizing Fall Colors
Orange, brown and yellow are typical fall colors that will make your home feel cozy and like fall during the autumn months. Scatter your home with yellows, oranges and browns in order to make it feel like fall inside and out. Get leaves, trinkets and other decor items with these bright, vibrant colors to create a cozy, warm feeling to home every time you walk in and out of a room. You can also utilize these colors in your kitchen with drying towels and other small wares with fall decor colors on them.
Adding A Fireplace
There is nothing more cozy in a home than the warmth coming from your very own home fireplace. Since not everyone can afford or has a fireplace built into their homes buying a stand alone fireplace will be a possible option. Fireplaces not only look stunning and add a sense of comfort to your home but can warm up the place too. Find one that is easy to turn on and can be utilized anywhere in your home at any point in the day. A fireplace will add a whole new look and feel to whichever space you decide to add it to.
Light It Up
When the cool weather hits that's when you know it's time to get out those fall scented candles! Candles are a girl’s best friend, and rightfully so. Not only do they make your home smell terrific for a long period of time, but the ambiance of a lit candle is something short of magical. Flickering candles in the background with the warm toasty smell of apples and cinnamon is a sure fire way to make your home feel cozy this fall.
Add Blankets and Pillows to Your Space
There is not much cozier than a soft, warm pillow and blanket. During the summer time you rid your home of these things to make it feel lighter and keep you cool but when fall hits it is important to bring back out those cozy pillows and blankets. Get a traditional plaid patterned wool blanket to add to your space to really give it a fall look and feel all season long.

It's easy to do by simply adding a day in your schedule you bake a homemade pie or brew up some spiced apple cider to make your home smell of the natural fall bliss.
