Ok - I don't care if it is 90 degrees outside - I am in a fall kinda mood! I figure we are well within our rights to talk fall. I mean - Starbucks has the Pumpkin Spice Latte out which in my mind is the heralding of the fall season.

And when I think fall the one thing that comes to mind is cozy. This is the time of year when we pull out the blankets and sweaters. When you need to take a jacket if you are going to be out at night. I love the return to cool from the sticky humidity of summer. Ah... to be cozy. 
So I wanted to do a post on what is cozy to me in decorating ... and thus very very fall. Enjoy!

Cozy is ... a firepit on a cool fall evening.

We've just moved into a new house this summer so we're still trying to make our mark. This has given me some inspiration for some Auutumn nesting though.

Have a lovely cozy day!

I absolutely adore the last picture! I want a cozy nook like that one day. Thanks for the inspiring post.

Jess, where did you find that one with the red doors in the entry on Houzz? I would like to see if they have more pics of the same house. Houzz is a great site, but there's a lot of sifting to go through to find the pic you want.

Cozy is that reading nook! oh how I could day-dream there all day. Looks like the fall-bug has hit you too. I'm craving a hot cup-a-joe, a warm blanket and a warm fire...

Oh, I want to curl up in that reading nook....how cozy!

Kind of hard to pick the picture that is most cozy, I like several of them :) Cozy at my house is fluffy blankets and vanilla smells. That coffee sounds good :p

Your post did the trick for me -- I am now ready for the cooler weather -- ready to do some cozying up in a warm, soft afghan. Love the touches of red in the pictures, particularly the red door. Quite striking!

One of my fav's to make my house feel cozy is to light cinnamon scented candles. One of the nicest compliments I ever received was from my cousin who said that my house always smelled like Christmas to her.

That second picture reminds me of how much cozier my living room would be if someone hadn't painted over all the exposed beams. Now they're just white. So silly.

Great post! Those images definitely speak fall. Now you have me thinking of the pumpkin latte :)

Julie said... @ September 9, 2010 at 8:20 PM

Great fall pics!

Kimbra Kasch said... @ September 10, 2010 at 2:38 PM

I love that cozy private space. I'd curl up with a book and a blanket...ahhhhhhhhh

Ritkiss said... @ September 13, 2010 at 1:34 PM

Amazing...oh to be crafty...I can't wait for a house to decorate, and I know who I will be consulting!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just
so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.

I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
