Hello and welcome back to Snowberry!
Are you ready to cozy up to fall?
You’ve come to the right place!
Today I’m joining an amazing group of blogger friends to share ideas for creating a cozy fall home.
Wrap yourself in a cozy cardigan, grab a cuppa something warm and let me show you how I upped the coziness factor at Snowberry.
Then be sure to visit all my fellow cozy home lovers for their ideas.

Pillows, throws and trays.
Pillows, throws and trays.
My home decor mantra for all seasons.
Add pumpkins, light the fire and we’re on our way to a cozy fall.
Oh, and I almost forgot … flowers!
All the fall flowers.
She inspired me to create my own arrangement.
I did a decent job and felt more confident afterwards.
That said, this arrangement came from our local Orinda Florist.
I love the vibrant colors with a nod to fall.
I found this wooden bowl at Salsa Trading Company in Sonoma.
Twenty years ago.
And topped it with one of my collection of woven pumpkins.
Pottery Barn’s cozy cable knit throws, lined with fleece, are the very best.
I like to give them as gifts.
Snowberry’s official ‘house throw‘ is from Target.
I buy a ton of them to protect our furniture from our dogs, new cat, and their constantly shedding fur.
I swear I could stuff a sofa with the hair shed by our 10lb Jack Russell Terrier every week.
Velvet pillows add warmth and texture.
My blue green velvet pillows were made for the den of our Fidalgo Island home.
We sold all the furnishings with the house, but I kept a few pieces here and there.
I’m so glad I held onto these.
Have you read the book everyone’s talk about …
I bought it, set it on our newish garden stool and placed a small flower arrangement on top.
And now I can’t read it until the arrangement fades.
I started collecting woven pumpkins.
It just happened
Instead of changing out my coffee table tray as I normally do,
I added a cloth pumpkin and sprinkled mini-pinecone filler into the hurricane.
I know, I know … the lengths I go to with my seasonal decorating.
It’s really too much.
Look at that.
My fall decor mantra summed up in one photo.
Pillows (velvet), throws (cable knit) and trays (pumpkin & pinecones).
Add a cup of cocoa and the Hallmark channel.
I’m ready for the cozy season.
Looking back toward our small dining room …
a glimpse of a new art piece by Heidi Michelle.
More on that another day.
Please welcome Snowberry’s latest addition.
No, not the cat.
Our fiddle leaf fig took a turn for the worse.
Shortly after the Design Salvation podcast declared fiddle leafs passe.
So far this guy is a lot less temperamental and I hope he settles in for a nice, long stay.
Another cable knit throw from my official ‘house throw’ provider, Target.
Nothing makes a house feel cozier then wonderful aromas wafting from the kitchen.
Soups and stews bubbling away on the stove.
Scrumptious treats baking in the oven.
Last weekend I made a big batch of my grandmother’s chili to freeze.
It’s a fall favorite at our house on football Saturdays.
Last week I shared our home library room reveal.
Here’s a sneak peek at the French doors we added after the fact.
This room really lends itself to the fall and winter seasons and I added a few cozy touches in here as well.
I’ll share it all in the weeks ahead.
So there you have it, …
a few simple touches to create a cozy fall home.
Let’s go see how my blogger buddies are cozying up to the season.
PIN THIS POST FOR LATER ~
About a month ago we adopted a rescue kitty.
Her name is Abigail … Abby for short.
She’s a wonderful additional to the family and ups our coziness factor considerably.
As always, I appreciate your visit and welcome your thoughts in the comments below.
Happy Fall … and cheers from Snowberry!
