This autumn, fall in love with your home. Cool weather gives everyone a good excuse to get cozy by bringing in new décor with beautiful colors and soft textures.

If harvest colors don’t motivate you, you don’t have to use them in your décor. Neutral tones can be just as comfy, so feel free to go as rustic or as modern as you like, color-wise.

Decorating your place for autumn is one way to practice self-care. When you add warmth and beauty to your home, you bring those qualities into your everyday life. Pour a mug of spiced apple cider and get ready to redecorate. Here are a few great products to get you started.

1. Cushy throw pillows

Pile some new throw pillows on your couch or bed. Make one of them colorful and another one furry to give the room a finished look.

Begin your fall redecorating modestly with some sweet accessories. Fall is a good time to freshen up a bedroom or living room with new throw pillows. They add comfort, complement the furniture, and make a room look more finished. Layer a furry pillow with a colorful pillow for a cozy look.

The Kathi lined cotton throw pillow at Wayfair has just enough autumn color to get into the spirit of the season but not so much that you can’t leave it out on the couch all year. Use it next to the Authier Shaggy throw pillow for a winning combination.

2. Chunky knits to cuddle with

Chunky knit throw blankets add welcome texture to a couch or chair. You can choose one or more in russet brown or dark green.

A textured throw blanket is especially appealing when it’s chilly outside. Toss one on a chair or couch to transform the room. It’s nice to wrap up in a blanket while you’re watching TV. If you’re like me, when you’re hanging out on a crisp day, you’ll end up wrapping it around your shoulders and wearing it like a scarf. The Jersey Rope Chunky Knit throw from Nordstrom comes in two non-cliched fall colors and rocks a hand-knitted look.

Display your cozy throw blankets on a blanket ladder. A rustic handmade piece fits well into a modern or farmhouse-style living room.

If you have so many throws that they’ve outgrown the couch, a blanket ladder is a good solution. Part storage and part décor, a handmade wooden ladder like the one from Sandstone & Sage works with many styles of rooms: farmhouse, beachy, boho, or modern. Drape a few throw blankets over it to add some fall flavor.

Teal pumpkins are on-trend for this fall.

Pumpkins are an essential part of the fall season and everyone needs a few on the front porch and inside the house. Not all the pumpkins you can buy are orange—teal is a big fall décor color this year. And teal pumpkins are not just novel—if you put one in front of your house on Halloween, it means you’re handing out non-candy treats. But fall extends beyond Halloween and a few teal pumpkins can look amazing on your dining table among a group of orange and white ones.
