Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a few easy fall living room ideas using soft, neutral colors.
Are you in Fall mode yet? After a late heat wave in WA state we are finally getting cooler temperatures and much needed rain. Fall is my favorite season and I always look forward to cozy sweaters, watching the leaves change, baking pumpkin bread, and lighting my favorite candle. I usually begin my seasonal updates in the kitchen (here’s what I did this year) next the front porch, and finally the great room area. Today I’m sharing simple fall living room decor.
A neutral girl at heart, I’ve added soft, muted color to the mantel rather than traditional orange and rust. I’m also in the less is more camp and like to keep my decor simple. Our house is small and every inch is used so there’s little room for ‘stuff’ or clutter.
Simple Fall mantel
I started with white pumpkins and then added blue Jarrahdale pumpkins. The soft blue/gray color is beautiful for Fall. The mini pumpkins (Baby Boos) are fun to add to bowls and look great on the mantel. You can usually find these at your market or check Trader Joes.
Adding black accent pieces is a no-brainer. I set a black and white family photo on the mantle to add a homey feel. The wagon wheel picture is from a small boutique in Eastern WA.
Candles are a must year round for us but even more so in the Fall and Winter. I changed out my ceramic pieces with brass candle holders and added the black candles. These are clean burning and don’t drip all over everything.
Last, I added the bats. We are hosting a small harvest dinner in a couple weeks so I decided to add a little extra Boo to this spot.
Fall coffee table decor
Books are great decor items and can be changed seasonally. Usually I stack them in groups of two or three and top with a candle or flowers.
Simple vases, like this round glass one, is inexpensive and doesn’t overwhelm the space. The hydrangea is from my yard. I dried a bunch last month and have them on shelves, my hunt board, near my range, and here. I shared how to dry hydrangea in this blog post in case you missed it.
I added a few feathers to my stone bowl and found a black dish to set my ceramic diffuser on.
