Whether it’s a fresh candle haul or stovetop kettle that’s brimming with tea, there’s something about the shift from summer to fall that sends me into full-on hibernation mode at home. Right as the leaves begin to change, you can find me dusting off every cozy blanket that lines the top shelf of my tiny hall closet and draping each one precariously across the living room sofa. After that, it’s all about the surfaces. Side table, coffee table, desk, bar cart, you name it — each one must be topped with fall-esque florals and flickering flames. If I’m feeling extra pumpkin spice-y, I also love a chic tablecloth or table runner in a festive seasonal print.
Decor aside, the best-kept secret to happily hunkering down is ensuring your must-haves are at arm’s length — and that’s where storage comes in. Storage chests and trunks are a great way to stash extra household essentials like throws, pillows, games, puzzles, and other knickknacks, but they’re also a genius small space living room hack because they offer double duty wherever they’re placed. Luckily, storage chests are relatively inexpensive. If you’re looking in the right places, you can find affordable, beautiful trunks you’ll treasure for years without breaking the bank.
