Secrets for Creating a Cozy Home.

It's no secret that fall is my favorite season. It's just so darn pretty. The scenic views around PEI as the leaves are changing are nothing short of amazing. We've had some pretty spectacular sunsets lately too and it all makes me so thankful that I get to live here. Strangely enough, the place I most like to be in the fall is at home. After a summer full of activity and a busy September, I appreciate the time to stay in and enjoy the comforts of home.

Other years, I've decorated my mantel with pumpkins and other fall inspired decor but this year I'm keeping it simple with my decorating. It's more about wrapping up in cozy blankets to watch my shows and the smell of my favorite scented candles that are making my home feel cozy this year.

Here is a round up of some of my favorite accessories that are perfect for cozying up your home as the temperatures start to drop and our hours of daylight fade away.


Lucia Candle in Wild Ginger and Fresh Fig :: The most amazing mild scent. A favorite of mine until I pull out the Frasier Firs around the holidays.

Good Morning Beautiful Mug :: A cheeky fun mug in a pretty script for your morning coffee. You can get handsome too!

MacAusland's Woolen Mills Raw Wool Blanket :: Time to add extra blankets to the bed and have lots of throws around for snuggling up. Made right here on PEI, I've wanted one of these blankets for years and this might be the year that treat myself to one.

Rustic Basket :: Need a spot to store all those cozy throws at arms reach from the couch when reading or watching your favorite shows.

Embroidered Fox Pillow :: Foxes are everywhere again this season in fashion and home decor. The official mascot of fall?

Autumn Essentials Print :: This one is Free, folks! Possibly the cutest free printable I've seen in a while. I'll definitely be printing this one!

Cashmere and Wool Slipper Socks :: I've given these as baby gifts on a few occasions but a pair for myself would be oh so lovely. I always have cold feet.

Ikea Rens Sheepskin Rug :: A tad obsessed with these. Draped over the back of a chair just screams cozy!

Acacia Wood Server :: I crave cheese, cured meats and fresh baguette in the fall. Rustic wooden cutting boards and servers are the perfect way to serve them.

  2. Isn't that printable adorable? I have that one flagged to print whenever I get a chance but haven't gotten around to it yet. Question on the blankets - do you know if they are available for purchase online? I went to the website but couldn't find a price or how to purchase. Could be that you can only buy in a store I suppose. Great round up! Fall is my favorite time as well - one of the first things I do when I get home is to put my favorite fall scented candle on.

    1. Hi Holly! You actually have to call the mill and order that way. Unfortunate but worth it!

  3. I hope you aren't teaching your students that fox's is the plural of fox. ;-)

    The quick brown foxes jump over the lazy dogs.

  5. I have one of those wool blankets in Burgundy. It is my favorite whenever I want to curl up with a good book and a cup of tea on a chilly evening. They are featured in the latest issue of House and Home. They featured the turquoise which looks so pretty too.

  8. Gorgeous rug and wicker baskets, I need them in my life! Thanks for sharing :) A bit off the topic but please do an inspiration board for the bedroom, with 1000 thread count sheets and all that jazz. I just recently moved to a new home and I'm super excited about decorating but I don't know where to start! Thank you!
