Nature-Inspired Accents

Adding natural elements is a great way to create a cozy feel. Pieces made from natural materials, such as rattan rugs or woven light fixtures, can help you give your home a laid-back vibe characteristic of the season. Alternatively, consider gathering fallen leaves, rocks or branches and use them creatively in your decor.
