It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
And if you think I’m talking about Christmas – you’re wrong. (Don’t worry…that’s coming!)
I’m talking about fall!!!
There’s something endearing about the fall. After a summer of adventure and outdoors, all of a sudden the mornings get a little crisper and the smell in the air changes.
I’m always a little hesitant, at first, to accept the changes, but then the pumpkin spice takes over!
I was reading an article about something called “hygge” the other day. Hygge is a danish word that means ” a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).
In my mind, this so perfectly describes what I’m trying to evoke once fall rolls around and I’m grateful Walmart is making it EASY for me.
Walmart is a great option for all your fall home decor, dinnerware, and hosting necessities. Just check out all the fall options HERE. They now offer 2 day free shipping on most purchases $35+.
I love this because I don’t even HAVE to leave my cozy house!
They also offer a variety of styles! Whether your style be farmhouse, traditional or modern, they really have something for everyon!
The area of the house I wanted to focus on was around the fireplace.
The fireplace is not only a source of warmth in our home LITERALLY, but also figuratively. It’s a place we gather around as a family to read books, or just chat about our day. It’s a place I hope my kids know they can ALWAYS come to and find a cozy and safe part of the world. I wanted to deck this area out with gentle reminders of fall and all the traditions thereof, while still making it a welcoming space.
One of the main additions was this gorgeous plaid chair.
It’s one that is pure classic design and will stand the test of time as it NEVER goes out of style. The plaid is a subtle black and white with wood legs.
The colors fit in well with my Fall scheme, but honestly, I know this chair will go with me through ALL seasons. High end quality, with a crazy awesome price.
This is one I want everyone to know about.
Naturally, blankets are a great way to make ANY space cozy.
The FIRST thing my kids reach for in the mornings, and in the evenings, are blankets. I have to admit, I am CONSTANTLY finding, folding, putting away, and then refolding again 10 minutes later every blanket! Anyone else?
This specific blanket is made of Chenille so it’s EXTRA soft. It comes in several colors, but the cream coordinated perfectly with the chair. Draping it over the back gives it a welcome appearance.
Not to mention, it gives it INSTANT cuddling appeal.
No one’s complaining about that!
Next up, the decor.
I wanted to do something that some really be carried out through ALL fall, and not just one month. I feel like a lot of this is versatile enough, you could really have it up year round in different ways.
Take for example, these lanterns.
I love them on either side of my hearth, for now I can use filler leaves in them for fall. Around Christmas, I could change it up and fill with little lights and even a few small ornaments.
There’s really a ton you can do with them and I like that I’m getting a lot of bang for my buck.
I also fell in love with the darling buffalo plaid pumpkins. They tie in the chair PERFECTLY, and it’s what I call, a subtle pumpkin. Because of the patterned fabric, you almost have to look twice to realize it IS a pumpkin.
Lastly, the decorative THANKFUL tray and BLESSINGS tray.
They’re made of metal, adding a farmhouse vibe to the cozy fall corner.
I love the subtle reminders of what we should really be focused on during the fall.
Isn’t being thankful what it’s all about?
I’m loving this little corner of fall coziness we were able to create in our home.
Not only is it more aesthetically pleasing, it’s also more inviting to my whole family now!
No doubt, thanks to our gorgeous finds at Walmart, we’ll be spending a lot more time here together now!
