Guest Picks: Hunt-Inspired Picks for a Cozy Fall Home
So far, I've enjoyed using these items in new ways. For instance, I found that placing a collection of feathers beside a grouping of white candles looks charmingly casual, and an assortment of antlers is just right when shown off in a simple glass container. In a more traditional sense, there is just something so comfortable and snug about casually tossing plush throw blankets and plaid pillows onto the sofa and settling in for a blustery evening.
Here is a collection of a few hunt-inspired favorites that have been influencing my choices as I bedeck my home for the season. I hope that these picks will also help you add cozy autumn touches to your own space. — Sasha from Lemonade Makin' Mama
When I first saw this watercolor spotted owl feather print, I was captivated by its simplicity and thought it would make a nice addition to a fall vignette.
My family can't get enough cozy throws as the temperature begins to dip, and we seem to need one for each member of the household. One of my favorites is this wool plaid with a fringed edge. I find the gray and brown tones to be especially charming this time of year.
These Woodland Bird plates by Spode have my heart. They mix beautifully with brown and cream tableware, linens and candles and will make any fall dinner a special occasion. I could definitely see a set of these becoming everyday dishes for the fall season.
You can't have a hunt-inspired group without a few antlers. I love the whimsical look of this faux antler votive holder. I would probably use it all over the house, depending on the occasion, but it would be a great console table centerpiece or addition to a Thanksgiving buffet.
This faux sheepskin rug is one of my favorite picks because a plush refuge for your chilly toes is so important. It also looks elegant draped over the back of an armchair.
There is something so classic and masculine about leather, and I like adding these kinds of items to the living room to balance out the more girly elements. These leather pillows come in several different shades, and all have that rustic, worn look. I would scatter a couple onto the sofa with a soft throw blanket.
Adding a stag head to your wall decor makes a great statement, and this is the perfect season to make the move. It will look fantastic all year, but especially from now through the holidays. The white will pop well against a dark painted wall.
I always pile a couple of soft, furry blankets and pillows on all of the beds as fall descends. These faux fur blankets also have matching shams, and I've enjoyed making cozy bedding updates for the guest room with items like this.
I've seen many of these reproduction antler chandeliers. They bring a cozy lodge-like feel to the room and would make a pretty definite statement hung over a dining table or in an entryway.
It's nice to give favorite photos a seasonal update, and you can do exactly that with this rustic leather frame. It comes in a couple of different sizes and would blend well with other fall decor.
This horse head bottle opener is one of those items that makes for a great conversation starter at your next casual gathering.
This antler hook is not only adorable, but actually quite useful. I know about a dozen places that I could use it. The best part is that it comes in a variety of finishes, even a bright goldenrod color — talk about cheery!
These resin door handles and pulls make for an instant update and lend classic huntsman style to your space. I would install some on a cabinet, and they would be inexpensive to change when the season is over.
This season is also the start of cold season. Instead of trying to hide ugly tissue boxes, tuck them inside a pretty leather cover and let them sit out in plain sight. Pretty and functional, this one is my favorite.
What is it about houndstooth? I love this classic pattern, as well as the idea that these pillows will probably last longer than I will. This would mix perfectly with a couple of leather pillows and a faux fur throw blanket. So cozy.
This lamp base is actually covered in leather and was modeled to look like an antique food storage barrel. It makes me want to curl up in a leather chair and read serious books — while wearing a smoking jacket and sipping really old brandy. I'm just saying.
I might have a slight obsession with all things tufted. This leather armchair is no exception. It has a deep seat so that you can sink in and just stay there all evening. And I'm very capable of doing exactly that.
It's a pouf. Covered with faux fur. And it's square. I feel like Restoration Hardware crawled inside my mind and made exactly what I like. I would love nothing more than to rest my tired toes on this little pillow of luxury each day while sipping my harvest spiced tea — or that really old brandy.
This is one of my favorite items because I always pull out candles and scatter them on every flat surface in October. This one comes packaged in a cute woolen bag (perfect for gifting) and is scented like trees.Next: Warm and Cozy Wildlife and Hunt-Themed Inspired Rooms
