Your kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s so easy to add that warm and cozy kind of feeling during these fall months.
I feel like fall is the time when I find myself in the kitchen more than any other room in the house.
My husband and I make caramel apples for the neighbors every year. I’m always trying a new recipe or perfecting a fall favorite.
And let’s be honest…I am all about anything pumpkin. And now that I’ve found an apple cider doughnut kit, I will be trying those out as well!
Ideas for Creating a Cozy Fall Kitchen
1. Cozy Lighting
For those of you that are not familiar with the Pacific Northwest, it has a tendency to rain here. A lot!
Because of this, our home can get very dark during the fall and winter seasons. I’ve never been a fan of overhead lighting. To me, it’s much cozier to have a little lamp on my island, or a candle or two burning.
My fall tablescapes always have many, many candles.
2. Fall Scents
Having three dogs is always a problem when it’s too cold and wet to leave the windows open. Diffusers really help with that odor. There are so many amazing smelling essential oil combinations for the fall season. I almost always use vanilla and cinnamon.
I ALWAYS have candles burning. Not only do they provide soft lighting during the autumn season, but I love when the kitchen smells like I’m baking pumpkin bread or something with some serious cinnamon in it.
Antique Candle Co. has the most amazing scents available for fall. I clearly can’t pick a favorite but the vanilla bean and apple butter are new this fall and I’ve fallen in love.
Don’t you wish there was some sort of scratch and sniff feature available?
3. Open Shelving in the Kitchen
Open shelving provides such an opportunity to show off your fall home decor and vintage favorites.
4. Copper Accessories for Fall
I love the look of copper for the fall season. It just pops the entire kitchen.
5. Warm Wood Accents
Breadboards and dough bowls are perfect for a warm and cozy fall kitchen.
Dough bowls are a great way to show off your best fall decor and so easy to change up the looks whenever you want. I use pomegranates, apples, oranges, eucalyptus, and pumpkins.
6. Fall Flowers and Seasonal Fruits
Flowers are always included on my “best home decor” list. They are my favorite thing. If you don’t have fresh flowers available, invest in some faux flowers. Dried flowers are also a great decor addition during the fall season.
Have you ever dried hydrangeas from your garden? Read my blog post on 3 Easy Ways to Dry Hydrangeas. They make the best fall decor.
Enjoy fall flowers like mums and pansies in your kitchen. Check out the fall tablescape I created with pumpkins and mums.
Mixing both faux and fresh fruits and vegetables in the kitchen is another way I use produce as fall decor. I love how real these artichokes look.
My hope is that you take one or two of these ideas and use them to create your own cozy fall kitchen. What are your favorite home decor items you use for fall? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
