Leaving bright hues behind, Fall is the time to cozy up your bedding with heavy fabrics and rich colors. Starting with the right duvet and layering on the textures (like a blanket or two), we found linens that will help you come to terms with the dropping temps. Check out our favorites — some under $50 — and get ready to embrace those brisk nights in style!
For a glamping experience you'll never forget (at prices that can't be beat), Sunset Magazine introduces us to the West's most covetable, under-the-radar cabins — no tents necessary! We've selected three cabins from the November issue that have us itching for a weekend in the woods. Can you smell the campfire? We can!
Glen Oaks Big Sur, Big Sur, CA
While Big Sur has its share of luxury hotels perched on coastal cliffs, it's the under-the-radar spots — like the eight renovated cabins and two cottages at Glen Oaks Big Sur — that make visitors feel like they've struck gold. The coveted Big Sur Cabin includes its own slew of luxuries, including a private patio, outdoor fire pit, and two side-by-side clawfoot tubs for alfresco bathing. Visit during September and October to take advantage of the sunniest time of year!
Far Meadow, Sierra National Forest, CA
Sure, you could trek 12 more miles to camp in Yosemite, but Far Meadow's Base Camp might be the region's best-kept secret! Aside from being able to avoid Yosemite's notorious crowds and bus tours, Far Meadow's lodging options — including a remodeled Base Camp cabin, A-frame and log cabins, and two outfitted trailers — are worth the visit alone. Book a stay between May and November to swim, fish, and hike to your heart's content!
Point No Point Resort, Shirley, BC
For the kind of waterfront retreat where you might not see another tourist in sight, try Point No Point Resort on Vancouver Island. Just 40 miles west of Victoria, it's the perfect balance between secluded wilderness and easy accessibility. Aside from the fact that you'll pay less than $200 a night for Pacific Ocean views, the lure of two-person showers, hot tubs on almost every deck, and cedar walls make the cabins nearly impossible to resist. Try hitting up the restaurant's walled-in windows for the chance to spot otters, dolphins, and whales while you dine! July through September are the best months for soaking up tons of sun.

A chill is in the air, and the holiday season has officially begun! We are looking forward to entertaining, spending time with friends and family, and celebrating every day — even if it is in small ways. Check out the things that we will be turning to this month to make our homes feel festive.
Dubbed the "Queen of DIY", P.S. — I Made This . . . founder Erica Domesek has a simple plan of attack — she sees it, she likes it, and she makes it. Whether she's applying an ombré painting technique to her walls or bedazzling a classic trench coat with spiked studs, her knack for crafty customizations never ceases to impress us. While Erica's given us a tour of her NYC loft and talked about her killer deal for her newly published book, P.S. — You're Invited . . . , featured in our September Must Have Box, we were still dying to know more about the things she can't live without. Keep reading to see the items that are topping Erica's must-have list this season!
If you peeped Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen's colossal custom-built chateau in California, then their latest real estate conquest might seem small in comparison, but trust us, it's not! According to Zillow, the New England Patriots quarterback and supermodel just placed a $14 million offer on this full-floor condominium located in the posh One Madison Park glass tower in New York City. Aside from jaw-dropping panoramic views, the three-bedroom condo boasts a whopping 3,310 square feet — not too shabby for New York City! While details like a chef's kitchen and herringbone-patterned oak floors have their appeal, it's the thought of taking a bath in the master's glass-encased bathroom that makes us weak in the knees — in the best way, of course.
The entertaining season has officially begun, which means we are readying our houses for all manner of guests! We like to welcome them with a seasonal wreath on our door, a beautifully scented house, and something special, like this star light. Of course, we will also try to clean up before they come over, but we can't promise anything.
How are you readying your home for friends and family? Share it with us by tagging your photos with #casasnap, and you might be featured on POPSUGAR Home. And don't forget to follow popsugarhome on Instagram!
