It's time for Fall at Home: Hunker down, bundle up, and make the season as cozy as possible with our foolproof guide to autumn.

Giving your home a fall style refresh is one of our most-loved yearly traditions — and this year, after a summer spent (largely) inside, we're more excited than ever for a little change of scenery. So when Etsy announced its top fall decor trends, we started shopping immediately — and asked Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson to weigh in on why these trends made the cut (and how she's styling them this year).

From '70s-inspired light fixtures that brighten up your space both literally and figuratively, to a new take on the wall mirror trend, these are the pieces you'll want to pick up STAT ... along with some classic fall favorites, like cozy blankets and cocoa-ready handmade mugs. Read on for Isom Johnson's top trend insights, as well as a few shopping picks of our own.

Retro Lighting

"Shoppers are looking to add nostalgic touches throughout their spaces this fall, with retro lighting taking center stage," explains Isom Johnson. "Some of my favorite designs include mushroom lights and lava lamps – the ultimate comeback trend."

1. CosmicDesign NL Large Mushroom Lamp, $111

2. Cintage27 Vintage Harvey Guzzini Mushroom Lamp, $130

3. Stylish Lighthouse Graewe Table Lamps, Set of 2, $321

Artful Mirrors

This season's trending mirrors aren't just for perfecting your topknot. "Mirrors are doubling as artwork as shoppers opt for uniquely-shaped designs," says Isom Johnson. "From stars to seashells, these conversation-starting mirror styles are not only still functional, but can also be seamlessly incorporated into wall decor."

1. Candice Luter "Svara" Arch Mirror With Brass Accent, $360

2. Woodland Gold Rhombus Mirrors, $36.70

3. Noja Glass Design Monstera Mirror, $111

Nesting Essentials

Nesting is always one of our favorite parts of fall, but this year it's extra-important. "With shoppers spending more time at home than ever, comfort is key. Ahead of the cooler months, I'm personally stocking up on chunky knit blankets, a new set of mugs, and seasonally-scented candles to keep me cozy all season long," Isom Johnson notes. Not-so-coincidentally, these are all items that can be found in Etsy's latest celeb collab — a collection released with Queer Eye's Tan France — which we've been swooning over.

1. EVOknit Tan France x Etsy Chunky Knit Blanket, $219

2. Convivial Production Minimal Mugs Seconds, $20

3. MIZU Brand Palo Santo Candle with Custom Wrap, $38
