5 Easy Ways to Bring Fall Home
Our budget may not be large, but we love making little changes around the house to bring out the seasons. Here are 5 easy and inexpensive ways to infuse a little fall flavour into your home.
1. Cozy Throw Blankets
Fall is when our throw blankets come out of the closet and become permanent fixtures, littered all around our living room. Throw it over the back of your sofa, fold it on a chair, or store them out in the open in one of your new handwoven baskets above. Woolrich in particular is renowned for their cozy wool blankets (they make the famous Hudson Bay Point blankets). Our fall vote goes to long-lasting wool blankets, or fun faux fur throws.

3. Handwoven Storage Baskets
To us, beautiful baskets scream fall, but these are definitely purchases that will be usefull adds around the house year round. Use them to store magazines, toys, throws, or seasonal display items.

5. Gourd Centrepieces & Displays
This one may be slightly cliche, but we can't help it! Gourds and squash make for such a an easy display piece. Place them in a platter, stack them in a bowl, or cover them in a cake bell. This requires nearly zero effort and looks great. You can even use these to make tasty fall treats when you get sick of looking at them!
