I don’t know about you, but I love fall. Actually it’s my favourite season. I love how the city changes and everything turns from green to beautiful red and orange colors. But for me, fall is also about making our home cozy and ready for the winter. Therefore, it’s time to dig out all of those warm blankets from the attic and start decorating for fall.
How to get your bedroom ready for fall
On top of my list this fall is the bedroom. I agree with the sleep experts at the mattress company Casper that the bedroom should be nice and cozy, and not filled with all the junk, you don’t know where else to put. So if you haven’t gotten rid of that, now is the time. In other words, it’s time to make your bedroom the most comfortable and coziest room in the home.
We spend a third of our lives in bed, and what is more appealing than to sleep in when it’s cold outside? In order to fully recharge your batteries and be able to relax, you need a cozy atmosphere in your bedroom.
A room made for relaxing times
For me to relax, I need my bedroom to be tidy and spacious. Preferably without to much clutter to distract me. My bedroom is a place for meditation and relaxing. Therefore, I don’t have a TV in there either. But calming music and candles are welcome. As you can see, my style is very Scandinavian – I love to surround myself with beautiful nordic design. It has a calming effect on me, because of the color scale.
This fall I’m thinking about painting one wall in the bedroom. I’m thinking moss green. I’ve been quite smitten by that color for quite some time now. To get a more green feel to the room, I’ve added a few of my baby Pilea plants. This fall the bedroom will be ready for me to put on warm socks, a nice scarf and just drink my morning coffee in bed while reading a book.
I’ve collected some key items that would turn my bedroom into my cozy spot.

Since I’ve taken up reading books on a (almost) daily basis, I want to add a few books to my collection this fall. I want to get inspired, read about interesting people and topics, I want to relax and drink coffee while reading these books.

Yesterday, I finished the course in Online Marketing. I aced the exam, and I’m now ready to go out there and use all the knowledge. The course was amazing, and I’m ready for another round, if they ever do a Online Marketing Part 2. Finishing the course also means that I’ll be blogging more regularly again. I’ve got some really interesting things coming up.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve collected a few interesting ideas and links. I want to share some of then with you today.
First up is a small DIY project – I love this beads coaster. Fall is also all about curling up inside with a good book or a magazine. The new issue of Brygg Magasin is on its way, and I cannot wait to read it. I’ve also been reading these wise words on Paulo Coelho’s blog lately. I was inspired by this hair do, and will try it this fall, if I can resist the urge of getting my hair cut. On my list of things to cook in the near future are this polenta dish and this sweet potato dish.

I’ve started collecting a few ideas for DIY projects for fall. I’m getting rather restless these days – and I need different projects at home to distract me, otherwise I get in a foul mood – and we don’t want that.
Here are a few of the DIY projects on my list:
Le paper globe – I want to make one or two – one for each kid. Want to make your own, then you can print it right here and get started.
Kitchen labels – I found some really cool ones and a guide over at nordic mojo. Unfortunately, the link to his labels doesn’t work anymore. But it’s great for inspiration. I really need labels like these in my kitchen – and it would be the perfect fall project.
Cord decoration – I first saw this idea a few years ago, and I’ve been wanting to try it out for ages. Now that I might have found wooden balls large enough to fit the purpose, there’s no excuse anymore.
Paper airplane – Ever since I saw Tina’s, also known as Traveling Mama, cute decorations for her boy’s birthday party last year, I’ve been wanting to add paper planes to my boy’s room. He’s got a large old school map on one wall in there, so the planes would be really cool. To see more pictures and to have a look at Tina’s guide, click here.
Lamp decoration – Ever since we moved into the new house, over two years ago, I’ve been wanting to change or even throw out a few lamps. Therefore, I think it’s time to either decorate them or get rid of them. I’ve got a few ideas in my head for decoration.
