Fall Colors Home Decor Ideas
Incorporating fall colors into your home decor will create an inviting atmosphere that reflects the beauty of the season.
1. Soft Textiles in Fall Colors
One of the easiest and most luxurious ways to add fall color to your home decor is with soft textiles like blankets and throws. You can also use this as an opportunity to embrace another 2023 trend which is adding luxury to your home with these plush textiles.
A soft, orange wool blanket draped at the end of the bed will provide an extra cozy layer that will carry you through the chilly autumn season.
2. Hang a Fall Wreath
Fall wreaths exude everything we love about fall, variegated foliage, vibrant berries, nubby acorns, and seasonal flowers. Though fall wreaths are ideal for interior and exterior doors, they should not be limited to this location.
You can also hang large and small fall wreaths on interior and exterior walls, on windows, along the stairway, on gates, along fences, on mailboxes, or on tall headboards.
3. A Seasonal Rug
Embrace fall decor on your floor by incorporating a rug with seasonal colors. This may seem like an extreme change in your home decor, but it is easy to make a big statement without changing everything.
The key is to choose an area that will make an impact but not one that will force change in other elements. A room like a foyer, bathroom, and mudroom are good options. You could also add a fall-colored rug in a larger room if your paint and furniture colors work with it.
4. Pumpkins and Other Harvest Decor
Adding pumpkins to your home decor is one of the easiest ways to get the quintessential look of fall. Pumpkins, gourds, and other harvest decor like wheat sheaves and fall leaves are endlessly versatile because they come in such variegated shapes and colors. You can incorporate pumpkins into a gorgeous front door display, table centerpieces, topiaries, and window arrangements. Carve pumpkins with your family and create fun and stylish luminaries to display proudly for Halloween.
5. Fall Flowers
You can incorporate fall flowers into every room to inject gorgeous autumnal color but also natural beauty and texture. Create simple but effective flower arrangements using fall flowers and foliage like chrysanthemums, sunflowers, dahlias, marigolds, asters, berries, and fall leaves.
Add fresh fall flowers to window boxes. Create a live wreath using an oasis base and fresh flowers for a special party. Keep in mind that this wreath will only last for a couple of days, so plan accordingly. You can also opt for some hanging pots with fall flowers like mums to brighten up your porch or patio spaces.
6. Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are one of the easiest home decor items to add a remove with the changing season. Don’t feel like you have to make a complete change to orange and brown to incorporate fall colors.
Instead, think outside the box and add dusky peach, deep aubergine, rusty burnt sienna, and pale brown colors into your pillow mix. Add them to your living room or bedroom decor, or add them to a front porch swing where you can change the colors without being hampered by other upholstery.
7. Fall Craft Projects
Fall craft projects are fun to do with kids and they make excellent fall color home decor. Choose crafts like banners, garlands, wreaths, table displays, place name cards, and pumpkin projects.
There are wonderful fall-themed crafts for both children and adults and you are sure to find one that will enhance your fall-themed color palette.
8. Table Centerpieces
Fall embodies the change from warm to chilly weather, making our minds turn to the comforts of the cozy indoors. Take the opportunity to create memorable meals over stunning fall centerpieces on the table.
Choose a rustic container like a concrete or metal urn or even simple mason jars as the base of your centerpiece. If the container requires it, cut some oasis to fit the container and then soak it in water, or else just fill it with water. Add seasonal flowers, foliage, and pumpkins to the container.
Fill in around the centerpiece with small pumpkins and gourds, leaves, acorns, and pinecones. Add hurricane globes and candles for evening gatherings.
9. Wall Art
Choose a prominent place in your home to display seasonal wall art. You can change out the wall art and accent room color a few times a year. This can help you from getting tired of the decor in this room.
Don’t feel like you need to reinvent the wheel by buying new wall displays. Instead, choose a few pieces that you love and swap them out a few times a year.
Highlight the new color changes by accenting it with throw pillows or other soft textiles that you can easily change.
10. Plaid Textiles
Plaid textiles are the ideal pattern to welcome fall and see you through winter. Store these items during the spring and summer and they will look just as cozy when you bring them out at the beginning of autumn the next year.
Use plaid patterns on incidental chair upholstery, throw pillow covers, blankets, window coverings and tie-backs, chair covers, and table linens. Layer plaids of all different colors and pattern sizes for a fun and eclectic look.
11. Front Entrance Display
Go all out by adding seasonal color to your front entrance area. Incorporate seasonal decor with large displays of pumpkins, urns filled with fall flowers and foliage, and a striking wreath display. On special evenings, highlight your walkway with votives to light the way.
