If you know me at all, you know how much I love having a cozy home.  You can scroll back through many previous posts, and this word is found a lot.  What makes a home cozy? For me, it is when you have items that are both pretty to look at and function.

Coziness is created when there are multiple textures and layers. Cozy is having on hand plenty of seating and items to keep you comfortable, such as a blanket in the winter.  An inviting home looks decorated but not cluttered. Are you ready to see how I did this in our home this Fall on a budget?

Great finds at Tuesday Morning!

Cozy on a budget…I knew right where to go, Tuesday Morning!  I always love seeing what unique finds I can discover there, and of course, you can’t beat the deals they offer.

Make your home cozy with a bean bag chair.

When I visited Tuesday Morning, I found a furry bean bag chair that was calling my name.  As I mentioned above, plenty of seating is what makes our living room cozy, and we’re always having family and friends gather in this area.  Why not have an extra seat? Paul loves it!

Next, I discovered a darling pumpkin that could sit atop our coffee table.  There were so many different pumpkins to choose from, but at the end of the day, I couldn’t resist this one, haha!

Make your home cozy with layers.

Remember how layers are one of the ways to make your home cozy?  I layered the pumpkin on top of a book plus a vase with florals I already had on hand. It did the trick!

Make your home cozy with blankets.

I always have to look through the blankets at Tuesday Morning! I was drawn to a super soft and fuzzy mustard blanket because mustard has been a fall color I’ve been incorporating this year. Our main living areas, including our master bedroom, can’t have too many blankets.

Having your family and friends feel comfortable is one of the ways to make your home cozy too.

Protip: Bringing a color from across your bed can be quickly done by draping a blanket across the arm of a corner chair in that color.

Make your home cozy with baskets.

For the longest time, I’ve been on the hunt for decorations to go above our dining room hutch but haven’t been able to find a piece I love! I knew I didn’t want a cluttered feel, but it has looked empty (the opposite of cozy!).

Well, I’m so glad I was hunting for treasures at Tuesday Morning because they had these large seagrass baskets.  Boom! Precisely what this space needed. Typically, these baskets are very expensive, but the savings at Tuesday Morning on these were awesome. Seagrass baskets and other natural elements are ways to make your home feel cozy.

Speaking of the dining room, our table had been begging for a table runner as a base layer (cozy=layers).  There happened to be several I loved there and ended up with this striped one.  The farmhouse striped look is time-worn, which cultivates that welcoming feeling.

Make your home cozy with varying heights.

Lastly, embracing varying heights in your design is one of the ways to make your home cozy, and I love using little pedestals to bring that to various areas of our home. 

These pedestals often hold candles in our home, but this little cute white one perfectly fits a pumpkin I had on hand! Don’t worry: there was a candle burning in the kitchen to keep a lovely, scented home this Fall.

    Brendt,
    I love all your Fall Decorating!!! It’s hard to beat
    Tuesday Morning. We have one in our area and it is wonderful to shop for larger items that fill up a space and fabulous prices. Love the top of the china cabinet. I have been trying to find something for my china cabinet top; it looks lost without something on it. I may have to take a little road TRIP!!!! I love your blog post and look forward to seeing what you bring to us each week.
    Fall Blessings to you and your family,
    jean
