Creating An Autumn Atmosphere


Whenever there's a change of season, I always love to change my house up, even if just a little bit. To me, summer is all about a bright and flowy atmosphere, but fall is the beginning of hygge season. Even if you're like me and don't like to go all-out festive in the autumnal décor, there are still a few small but impactful adjustments you can make to transition your space from a summer atmosphere into a fall one. With the first official day of fall only a few days away, now is the perfect time to start making those changes. Most of these are a no-brainer, but I thought I'd share them with you anyway...

Light lots of candles
I'm definitely a candle person - I love to light them while I clean or relax. There's just something so cozy about them, and even though they don't really emit much heat, they still give off that warm feeling. During fall, I love lighting a few different autumnal candles throughout my home so the scents mix!

Switch over your wardrobe
With the temperatures slowly starting to drop, it's time to bring out the sweaters, scarves, and fuzzy socks. If you box up clothes according to season, bring out your fall pieces and pack away your spring and summer clothes. Otherwise, if you just leave everything in your closet year-round, pull the sweaters and cardigans to the front and push the spaghetti straps and dresses to the back. Lint roll and iron anything needing a little TLC in order to be ready for the colder months.

Bring the outside inside
One of the cheapest ways to spruce up your home a little bit and a touch of autumn is to buy a couple of small pumpkins or gourds from the local pumpkin patch. From my experience, they usually don't cost too much and are a definite autumnal atmosphere booster. On top of that, you can also pick up some fall flowers. Typically one thinks of mums or sunflowers for this time of year, but you can also create a bouquet of flowers with autumnal colors to stick in a vase in the house!

Make yourself something delicious
Just the fact that it's fall is a good enough reason to bake some sort of pumpkin spiced concoction or throw on a pot of coffee. I love making spicy mulled apple cider on the stove because it's tasty and makes the house smell amazing. With the scent rolling through your home, it'll definitely add that final autumnal touch.

  1. I can't wait to make my space more autumn-y in spirit! Candles definitely do the trick and they're so easy to add. Fall flavors like cinnamon and pumpkin are THE BEST...making myself a treat incorporating those flavors is my favorite thing to do around this time of year!
