Fall is here and nothing whisper quietly like “cozy” like curling up on a fur rug in front of an open fireplace in a log cabin in the mountains.
Unfortunately, for those who deal with the hustle and bustle of the city, this image can not be further from reality. Heck, the best you can probably muster is a Starbucks pumpkin and spice milk coffee.
But that’s not necessarily the case. You too can give your humble home that rustic atmosphere during the colder months by incorporating some simple decorating ideas. You do not even need a log fire or even a log cabin, you only need your apartment and some extras scattered around the room to give it the warm and intimate feeling that so many people desire at this time of the year. .
So let’s take a look at these 12 suggestions that could help turn even the most urban house into a farmhouse in the countryside, to which everyone yearns when leaves begin to change.
Do you like the appearance of fur rugs but do not particularly appreciate their origin? So, these faux fur rugs are made for you.
Nothing shouts more “country” than wrapping you in plaid blankets – the more blankets you have, the more you laugh!
Utilize Sticks And Branches
If you want things to look a bit rustic, the easiest way is to incorporate a lot of branches, twigs and branches into your home. Even if it’s something simple, like this little practical assistant for the calls of nature.
Old Cans As Plant Pots
These simple containers will add a nice autumnal feel to your place when filled with pine limbs (the resulting scent is just a benefit).
Wooden And Tin Signs
If you want your place to look like a log cabin, you will need wood and tin panels around the place, quite simply.
Enamel Camp Mugs
We all know that the most seasoned men like to sit around the fire with an enamel camping cup in their hands, but that does not mean you can not snuggle up on your couch with one of these full of cocoa.
A Gallery Wall
Wooden frames with black and white photos of old ski pavilions and snow-capped pines, with mirrors and even wood are essential for any home with interior-inspired décor.
Hey, if you want to have the covers, you must also have the cushions. Printed animal prints and nostalgic printed pillows set the mood for the season, or you can simply choose a tried and tested plaid.
The More Logs The Better
These are both aesthetically pleasing and also the most useful item on this list. These placemats protect your table and do not really need to be cleaned, so bonus!
You Can’t Go Wrong With Pinecones
Although we talk about pine, very little captures the essence of the fall as well as pine cones. Put it in a metal bucket and place tree lights for extra warmth.
Tree Stump Wine Bottle Holders
Let’s be clear: as the weather gets colder, you’ll probably spend more time indoors, a glass of red in your hand. Bottle holders like this one are available at various retailers, but can also be a fun DIY project.
Last but not least, you will need some candles. If you put candles in hollow logs, they look great!
