I'm H&G's style editor – these are the easy fall updates I am buying for my home this weekend

I am more than ready for cozy season, so these are the pieces I have ordered to update my home quickly and stylishly

Fall decor has a relatively short shelf life, so I am all for embracing the switch-up of my interiors as soon as September comes around. I introduce them slowly, a new throw here, a few more rich-colored pillows there, and like my closet by the end of September, I have totally transitioned from summer to fall with relatively little effort.

I also like to add to my fall decor collection each year, so this weekend I am doing a deep dive into what all my favorite stores are offering up. Anthropologie, West Elm, CB2 (and more) are always my go-to, as they are perfect for more subtle, chic fall decor ideas that suit my minimalist style. And because we don't like to gatekeep at H&G, I am sharing all my top buys, to provide you with some inspiration too. 

Stylish fall decor that will instantly cozy up your home

When shopping for fall decor I like to ensure anything new I buy can carry me through past Thanksgiving and into the holidays. So while I do like to add the odd pumpkin here and there, I'm more about the soft furnishings – new cozier bedding, throw, pillows, rugs, and layering up textures. I have included some very 'fall' pieces here, but most of these buys can stay out right until spring comes around again. 

If you are unsure of when to start decorating for fall, let me be the one to tell you – now. Now is the time. And as I mentioned, you don't need to overhaul your decor all at once, switch things up over the coming weeks. Hopefully this has inspired you to do some fall shopping this weekend and all these pieces will help your home feel cozier for the change in weather.

Head of Interiors

I am the Head of Interiors at Homes & Gardens. I started off in the world of journalism in fashion and luxury travel and then landed my first interiors role at Real Homes and have been in the world of interior design ever since. Prior to my role at H&G I was the digital editor at Livingetc, from which I took a sabbatical to travel in my self-converted van (not as glamorous as decorating a home, but very satisfying). A year later, and with lots of technical DIY lessons learned I am back to writing and editing, sometimes even from the comfort of my home on wheels.
