Creating a cozy home for my husband and three girls is my passion. As a stay-at-home mom on a budget styling our home to tell the story of us has taken some creativity and a lot of DIY’S. You know what though?... That ended up being the greatest blessing, because as my husband and I figured out how to craft items for our home, the idea of Ruffled Nest was planted! Our hobby turned into a full time gig and boy do I feel blessed beyond words. Here I will share recipes, decorating ideas, DIY’S, and updates for our shop. Thanks for stopping by!
Creating a cozy home doesn’t have to be hard. Throw blankets and pillows are always a great jumping off point for adding cozy vibes to any space. Start with the colors you love most then build from there. I typically keep a neutral base with my throw blankets and pillows then splash in seasonal colors to change the look. This not only cuts down on having a lot of excess items that need stored, but it really makes it effortless to add the seasonal, cozy touches. The pumpkin pillow pictured above is the only true seasonal pillow I have on my couch, but it easily makes a statement of the season. I love shopping at places like Homegoods and TJMaxx for pillows. They are very affordable which makes it easier on the budget to switch them out each season.
A yummy smelling candle instantly makes a space feel cozy & inviting. My favorite candles are from Antique Candle Co. They are clean burning, last forever, (16oz. size has an average 80 hour burn life…woohoo!) and the scents are truly heavenly. I have never smelled a scent of theirs that I haven’t fallen in love with. My fave fall scents are Pumpkin Spice, Apple Butter, Vanilla Bean, Fall Harvest, and Warm Caramel Crumble.
If you’re worried about open flames, battery operated candles are a great option too. I love the warm cozy feel in the evening when the candles I have set on timers pop on and fill the room with soft glow of candlelight.
I know decorating for the season in a bedroom isn’t necessary, but boy is it fun! I added a few pumpkins and seasonal picks and stems to create an inviting fall look, without going overboard. The pillow and blanket on the bench are an easy switch each season to pull in the colors I’m using in my decor.
I hope this was helpful and inspired you to cozy up your home for fall. Thanks so much for stopping by today! See more fall inspiration in my post HERE and follow along on Instagram for more decor inspiration.
