Autumn is the time of year when colors change, leaves fall, and you crave more coziness in your life.  And that comfy fall feeling should really shine through at home.

Of course, you have a great head start in that area when you live in a furnished Blueground apartment.

Because each of our move-in-ready homes across the world is thoughtfully laid out by our team of talented interior designers. Want to make a few small changes to your space this season?

Check out these five simple ways to boost the cozy factor in your apartment during fall. 

1. Create a “scent-sational” space

There are lots of different ways to give your apartment that so-glad-to-be-home smell. 

  • Candles
  • Incense
  • Fresh flowers
  • Fragrance oils 

Take your pick of fall-inspired aromas, from pumpkin to apple cider.

Or make it the real deal. How? Since each Blueground apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, you can actually bake your Nana’s famous shortbread (or other memorable recipes).

That familiar smell will make you feel at home all season long. 

2. Pile on the texture

One of the top design trends of 2022 according to Better Homes & Gardens? Layered textures.

And our design team agrees. For fall, this look especially makes sense. We’re talking everything furry, fringed, and fuzzy.

That could include:

  • Handmade wool blankets
  • Woven baskets
  • Boucle table runners

Just remember, they don’t need to literally be layered. A space with texture-rich touches naturally forms that cozy mood you’re after. 

Hello, hygge

3. Make it personal

During gray, cold weather, treasured memories are sure to warm your heart. 

So sprinkle meaningful touches throughout your apartment.

  • Photos of friends and family
  • Pieces of decor with significant histories
  • Fridge magnets from your travels 

One old-school idea? Tape a snapshot of a loved one to your mirror. Or opt for a more modern option like a digital photo frame that scrolls through your latest pics. 

4. Push play

Did you know that every Blueground apartment comes with a Bluetooth speaker? It’s all you need to set the vibe in your space. Plus, the right music.   

A few of our favorite Spotify playlists for fall include, for example, Sweater Weather Instrumentals.

Put on some tunes, make a mug of hot chocolate, and kick back. 

5. Welcome guests (and yourself)

Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or having a healthy meal kit from one of our partners delivered, greet everyone at your door with an inviting look.

What do we mean exactly?

  • Seasonal doormats
  • Festive wreaths
  • Faux (or real) pumpkins on either side of the door 

These little touches can really show off your personality. And set the scene for more coziness waiting inside. 

Hopefully, these ideas inspired you to create a cozy fall vibe we all crave after a cool summer! We want Blueground guests to feel completely at home as they experience new places, whether they stay for a month, a year, or even longer.
