19 Pieces Your Home Needs This Fall, According to Our Editors

Updated 05/17/19

Just like Nate Berkus, fall is our favorite time of the year. We love to dress up in the season's coziest fashions and style our home in the furriest textured pieces for endless hours of cocooning. With the moodier days come the cooler nights, and when the temperature drops, we're all in hibernation mode. That means swapping the dance floor for a dinner party at home, or ditching the cinema for streaming Netflix in bed. 

Since we're spending more time indoors, we may as well convert our homes into the most beautiful spaces to be. It's officially nesting season, and as design devotees, we couldn't be more thrilled about it. So to get you inspired for the transition, we're sharing the fall decorations we're buying right now—you won't regret these Target impulse buys either.

"I've been looking for the perfect neutral flatweave rug to fill my entire studio, and I found it at TRNK. I love the subtle texture and shine of the rug (which means it will also look great on its own), but the goal is to layer a smaller Beni Ourain or vintage Oushak rug over the top to separate the living and bedroom areas."

"Mirrors are the most important thing in a small space. I love that this one has a stained finish to create a moody vibe and features a small pedestal to display a candle or bud vase."

"Calling the space I have a living room is really ambitious—it's actually the five feet that separate my bed from my kitchen counter in my studio apartment. Welcome to New York. Luckily, I finally found the petite sofa that's perfect for my tiny space: this armless sofa by Commune for West Elm. Its ultra-streamlined look is perfect for my ultra-small space. I love the thin legs and the brown leather piping."

"There's nothing quite like ending a long day in the office by curling up on the couch with a glass of wine and cozy throw. I have my eye on this oversize knit throw from Serena & Lily. The chunky knit and soft yarn adds instant texture to a living room and pairs well with most color schemes."

"Layering rugs is a simple way to transform your living room from season to season. Start with a natural fiber base, like a jute rug, and add a trend-driven piece over the top. I love the burst of orange in this Aelfie rug. It adds instant personality and creates a great base to add warm colored accents to the room."

"If there's one throw that reigns above all else, it's the iconic Hermès cashmere blanket. It's so regal. There's a reason it's in every fashion lover's home. It's an instant home pick-me-up."

"As the darker (and shorter) days hit with the onset of fall, lighting becomes more important than ever. I say embrace the moodiness of the season and have dinner by candle light. This structural candelabra doubles as lighting and an objet d'art. It's a win-win."

"When candles just won't cut it and you need to light it up, go for a bright table lamp like this Tom Dixon beauty. It's absolutely the most beautiful decorative accent. I don't know any side table that wouldn't be happy to have it."

"When you're starting to crave fresh air but it's too cold to go outside, the best thing to do is light a candle. I love candles that make a crackling sound while lit, like this one. It's the perfect background noise while you binge-read, and it smells like fall."

"Speaking of snuggling, I'm having a velvet moment, and this gray pillow is the perfect way to make a living room cozier. Everyone needs a good snuggle companion when you're sans partner."
