Ready or not, September is here, and that means (*Blink 182 voice*) all the… fall things. Gearing up for arguably the best season leaves cooler temps and cozier days to be desired — which, for most, will probably translate to more time spent at home.

On that note, there’s no better time to start turning your space into the ultimate oasis, and style inspiration abounds as new fall lines continue to trickle in. This season, I’m especially enamored with the recent collection from Arhaus, which I scoped out via their 100+ page lookbook. Overall, the line reads warm and natural, with some modern-meets-rustic elements. You’ll see this through repurposed hardwoods paired with organic materials.

Serving up everything from statement mirrors to sleek side chairs, the full collection’s now available to shop online or in stores. Yes, the luxe brand skews on the pricy side, but you know you’re getting quality, built-to-last pieces (read: for many, many fall seasons to come). If Arhaus doesn’t align with your budget, don’t fret. I pulled some standout decorating tips from the latest lookbook that you can easily adapt to your own home. Whether it’s art inspiration or cozy accent ideas, read on and re-style here.

Art doesn’t have to be huge to make a statement

You don’t have to max out your wall space with an oversized single print or painting to draw the eye. In fact, a smaller piece like what’s shown above feels unexpected and original, which lends it more power in commanding a room. Aim for contrast, like the the black-on-white tones here, to create extra emphasis, and hang it asymmetrically, as opposed to centered over the fireplace. You could also go bold with a more colorful yet small scale wall hanging, if that’s more your speed.

Redefine what’s considered “wall art” in the first place

Echoing one of my favorite takeaways from home director Danielle Blundell’s recent home tour, “[frame] random things if you love them — a hand-painted thank you note from a friend, a favorite piece of fabric.” Arhaus also got that memo, actually framing a one-of-a-kind rug from their line. Follow suit in your own space by repurposing a pretty vintage mat to the same effect or even incorporating a beloved neck scarf into your gallery wall. Just find a frame (try thrifting!), and you’re all set.

Tap into pretty cabinets to anchor a fairly blank wall

A sleek sister style to bookcases, glass cabinets are all the rage at the moment. Whether it’s a piece you’ve sourced from a flea market or something sleek and curved like Arhaus’ Hattie Cabinet, this living room- or bedroom-friendly piece makes the perfect spot to organize and show off your favorite wares — think books, vases, candles, and beyond.

Cozy up to a faux sheepskin rug… on your bed!

Bet you’ve never thought to bring faux sheepskin into the bedroom like this, huh? Usually relegated to the floor in rug form, this accent adds a comfy look and — most importantly — feel to the foot of your bed when converted into a throw. Trust me, you’ll be thankful for this styling-turned-cuddling layer come cold fall (and even colder winter) nights.
