While cooler weather may still seem a long way off in some parts of the country, getting your home up and running for fall can be a welcome relief after a long, hot summer. And, while fall doesn’t usually bring the extreme temperatures that come with other seasons, it does bring with it special considerations that necessitate certain home wellness essentials. From air purifiers to get you through the smoky forest fire months to heaters for those mornings when you just need a little extra warmth — and even indoor hammocks to boost mental health — fall offers plenty of opportunities to spruce up your home with stylish feel-good essentials. Here are some of the best items for your home (and your health!) as you say goodbye to summer and welcome to fall.
Dreo Solaris Slim H3 heater, $74.99
Who says a space heater can’t be stylish too? This Heating Dreo Solaris Slim H3 is the best of all worlds – it’s quiet, it’s efficient, and it looks great under your desk or in your bedroom for those chilly fall mornings when you don’t want to heat up the whole house. Best of all, it comes with a remote so you don’t even have to get out of bed to turn it on. With a range of 25 feet, it is very efficient and will heat up a room quickly. It’s also programmable, can oscillate 70 degrees, and has built-in safety features to prevent overheating, filter pet hair and dust, and shut off if accidentally knocked over.
Cotton Rope Hammock by Yellow Leaf Hammocks, $199
For some, it’s hard to give up summer and all outdoor activities, so bringing a hammock indoors could be the perfect solution for your mental health this fall. After all, hammocks encourage rest and relaxation. This cotton rope hammock by Yellow Leaf is handwoven from skin-friendly 100% cotton and perfect for indoor or outdoor lounging. It can even be stored in its bag and taken camping with these clever “Go Anywhere” Hanging Straps – although you may wish to opt for one of the Yellow Leaf Signature Hammocks which are a bit more durable for the outdoors if you camp regularly. Whichever design you choose, these hammocks will add style points indoors (or outdoors) as you step into the fall months. Best of all, they are beautifully handcrafted in Thailand under sustainable commercial conditions that allow artisans to be breadwinners for their families.
