The coziest time of the year is officially here, and we couldn’t be happier. We’re more than ready to embrace Fall and all that comes with it: the crisp weather, the colorful foliage and of course…pumpkin spice everything! 

One of the things we love most about Fall is coming home at the end of the day to a warm and cozy environment. So, as the leaves change and the temperature drops, we’re going to highlight some of our favorite fall essentials for a cozy bedroom.

Comforting Candles

Mmmm...smells almost good enough to taste (but don't do that)

Candles are a great way to create a cozy ambiance in your bedroom. The warm lighting and autumnal aromas are so soothing and comforting to the senses. Just think: you can enjoy the delicious scent of pumpkin pie without having to go through the effort of actually baking one. That’s a win-win, if you ask us. Just don’t forget to blow your candles out before you go to sleep.

Warm Bedding 

It’s about that time to switch out your summer sheets for warmer bedding. There’s nothing better than slipping into a plush and cozy bed at the end of the day, or curling up on a rainy weekend morning to read or watch TV. Flannel sheets and a down comforter will keep you warm on those chilly fall nights, but if you’re looking for a real game-changer this year, the ChiliPad Cube may be just what you never knew you needed.

The ChiliPad Cube is a heating and cooling mattress pad that you can control according to your own preferences. Imagine sleeping on a heating pad—that’s pretty much what it feels like. It’s the epitome of cozy, and the best part is, you can also use it to cool down in the summer.

Plush Throw Pillows

When it comes to coziness, touch is key, and what’s cozier than a plush throw pillow? Better yet, how about a few of them? Bringing soft textures into your bedroom provides an irresistibly soft and comfortable look and feel. You can use your throw pillows purely for decoration, or surround yourself with them when you lie down like you’re a bear about to hibernate. We recommend the latter!

Soft Lighting

If you’re not a candle person, you can still enjoy an ambient glow in your bedroom this Fall with the addition of lamps or fairy lights. Turn the harsh overhead light off and instead use a bedside lamp with a low-watt bulb. Soft mood lighting will really add to the overall coziness you’re going for.
