The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s so easy to add that warm and cozy kind of feeling during this time of year.
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 am always trying a new recipe or trying to perfect 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 PNW, it has a tendency to rain here. A lot! So my home can get very dark during the season. I’ve never been a fan of overhead lighting. To me, it’s much more cozy to have a little lamp on my island, or a candle or two burning.
2. Fall Scents
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.
I just recently received this Autumn Berry candle from Cultivated Candle Co. Don’t you wish there was some sort of scratch and sniff feature in a blog post?
Having two dogs is always a problem when it’s too cold and wet to leave the windows open anymore. Because of this, I have several diffusers throughout the house. There are so many amazing smelling essential oil combinations for the fall season. I almost always use vanilla and cinnamon. And of course, there’s nothing better than some pumpkin bread in the oven.
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
Bread boards and dough bowls are perfect for a warm and cozy fall kitchen.
A dough bowl is so much fun and you can change it up so much during the fall season. I use pomegranates, apples, oranges, eucalyptus and pumpkins.
6. Fall Flowers and Seasonal Fruits
I will always include flowers on every “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.
