Getting Cozy & A Bit of Halloween

We're heading into the cozy season of the year, ready or not. Every year, I seem to fight the fact that the days are getting shorter and colder and then before I know it, I'm embracing the cozy feel. And just in time, because we are expecting a lot of heavy rain later today and tonight here in NJ.

We had our first few fires of the season and those are always the best! The table in our family room is ready for meals by the fire and puzzle/project/card-playing season.
Let's head up the kitchen but stop off in the foyer on the way.
I added a few colorful fall items to our front door.
Up in our kitchen, I added a few Halloween touches to our windows and sink. I'm not big on spooky Halloween stuff, but I love the cute orange and black things! I picked up the Trick or Treat banner at the Target Dollar Spot and the polka dot pumpkin at Walmart. I already had the black and white sink skirt and curtains from this past winter.
Finally, I added some Halloween items to our living room. There's nothing like a big basket of Halloween candy to get the teenagers to gather here.
I think my favorite part of this space is the warm light illuminating the fall leaves outside the big front window.
Do you change up your decor as the season goes on too? It seems I am constantly tweaking things here and there to keep it fresh.


  1. Oh Courtney that throw and fire in the fireplace is so dreamy and cozy. Enjoy that space. Your whole house decor never disappoints. Happy Fall.
