We want to show you some of our favorite decor items to create the perfect cozy look for this season.  We especially love chunky knit throws, farmhouse plaids,  plush pillows and cozy rugs. Keep reading to find out how to seamlessly transition your decor from summer to fall.

Cozy Fall Throws

Everybody knows fall is all about cozying up by the fireplace with a hot drink and spending time with loved ones. And what is a cozy night by the fire without a comfy throw to wrap around you? Not only do they add texture to a space, but they are perfect for cuddling up with your hubby or little ones. Here are some of our favorite throws to keep on hand as we face the colder months ahead.

  1. Love how you’ve decorated your home for Fall, it looks breathtaking. Cozy throws are so fluffy and the pillows add coziness and warmth making the rooms feel lovely. The rugs with their softness and plushness are definitely inevitable as they take the Fall decor to a completely new level. 🙂

      Oh my goodness Katarina, Thank you every so much! Wow! What a blessing to read your kind reply. It means so much. I am still enjoying my beautiful rug of yours, by the way. So nice to hear from you. And know that it means so much to know you are enjoying our blog. Take care, Julie & Jodie

  2. Janice Brito says:

    Everything is just FALL perfect!!!!🧡🍂💛🍁
    Love it!!!! You ladies have amazing taste!!! ♥️😘

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Aw thank you sweet Janice! That means so much. This is Julie speaking, so I have to tell you, Janice, I agree. I think Jodie did a truly amazing job with her fall decor. I just try to keep up 🙂 Blessings to you my friend, Julie & Jodie

  3. Lynn says:

    You girls never cease to amaze! While enjoying every beautifully decorated area one thought came to mind, “how in the world are they going to surpass this next year, ” lol. Seriously from the flowers &pumpkins to the throws, plaids and cutest pillows you have blown me away! Thanks for sharing every little detail of this Fall delight. I love every last little detail and you have inspired me to make my rooms as cozy and welcoming as I can. Hope your fall nights are filled with love, laughter and you make wonderful memories. 🍁💛🌻🍂🎃🌾

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Aw Sweet Lynn! What a gorgeously kind reply. You warmed both of our hearts with your generous words. Thank you so much. You really don’t know how much it means to read. We take your kindness into our hearts and it motivates us to continue sharing. So God bless you, Dear One. Julie & Jodie

  4. Julie Piona says:

    Your house is gorgeous. You are so talented. I LOVE your style. Do you mind tell me how you hung the wreath with the four pictures behind it. I’d love to do that.

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Aw thank you so much Julie! Everyone asks this. Well, there is just enough wall space for me to put a command hook in the middle. But because I always have a wreath here, just swapping it out for a different one to fit the season I really could easily have a nail here as well. So glad you enjoyed my fall tour. XO ~ Jodie & Julie

  5. Pat Perry says:

    Would love to know where the table behind the table is available for purchase. Your home is lovely.

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Hi Pat, Did you perhaps mean to say the table behind the couch? Because the table behind the table I’m not sure what you mean. If you mean the table behind the couch, the rolling card on wheels, Jodie got it from Decor Steals @decorsteals They have rotating inventory, but you can still contact them and see if they can get it again. Blessings, Jodie & Julie

  6. Wowza! Such beautiful rich color everywhere. I’d love to cozy up in your home but would never want to leave. Thank you for sharing your tips too. It’s all so perfectly fall.

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Oh gosh, Cindy! You are so kind! It makes us to happy to hear you love Jodie’s fall home. This is Julie typing, and I have to tell you, Jodie blew me away too! I’m just over here in awe! The tips I wrote, though, haha, so I’ll take a little credit 🙂 thanks so much for your kindness and supporting our blog. Blessings, Julie & Jodie

  7. Christa says:

    Super cute decorations! Where is your bar car from?

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Hi Christa,
      Sorry for the delay in this reply. We were traveling in Europe (as you may have seen if you follow us on IG). Anyway, the rolling card that I love to decorate is from @decorsteals. They have revolving inventory but you can try to message them on IG and see if they can get it if they aren’t currently showing it. Tell them Jodie & Julie sent you 🙂 Blessings, Julie

  8. Milly Egan says:

    Really enjoying your blog and I am now totally into the idea of placing potted Chrysanthemums either side of the hall console table to welcome visitors during fall.
    It gives me new project this year to find a couple of beautiful pots before autumn arrives.
    Always such wonderful ideas. Thank you Julie & Jodie.

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Milly, Yes! I love how this post inspired some ideas and action plan. It’s smart to have ideas in advance so you can shop with direction and purpose. Good luck finding just the right pots. Blessings, Julie & Jodie

  9. Thanks for these decorating tips. I’m glad you mentioned you should have cozy accents like faux pumpkins as a central mantelpiece. It sounds important to think of what items could serve as a center piece especially if it affects what decor you use.

  10. Bob says:

    I love your home decor tips. We just moved into a new house and it is pretty bland looking. I’ll have to consider getting some throw pillows to make it look nicer.

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      We are so glad you are getting ideas from our blog! That makes us very happy to hear. We hope you continue to read and enjoy! All the best, Julie & Jodie

  11. Brenda Johnson says:

    Everything looks so warm and pretty. Always love the Buffalo check. I wish I could find some artificial mums in pots like the real ones you show in your photos.
