With fall fast approaching, it’s time to get your home ready for the changes ahead. Creating the right plan can be daunting in a season full of transitions. We can help keep these changes stress-free with some simple fall decorating ideas for your home.



One easy way to enjoy the transition to your fall look is to pick a room, and build your theme from there. Begin with your entryway or mudroom and add subtle yet impactful details that will make your home feel like fall.

To tie your interior spaces to the outside, use flourishes of color at the entryway that can carry into the home. Branch out, literally, by adding some foliage or pine cone themes on the entryway tables. Draw the eye with a mix of colors. White pumpkins and bright green terrariums add fresh pop to any fall palette.

Living Room

Since this is where you’ll likely spend most of your time both relaxing and entertaining during the fall season, keep your decor decisions warm and inviting. Layering a fall look throughout the room will make your transition both timely and natural. Treat this layering just like you do your wardrobe- start with the lightest pieces and build up from there. Convert vases and planters to fall themes with simple switches. Fill some with sheaves of wheat alongside your seasonally selected mums. An autumn themed blanket over your furniture will not only bulk up the feel of the room, it’s a very practical addition for those first chilly nights.

Your living room also boasts a classic space for fall decorations— your mantel. Fall mantel decor should work alongside the themes you build on in other parts of your home. Whether you choose vases, candles, garlands, a wreath, twinkle lights, or some combination of elements, tie the colors and feel of the room together on this prominent display.

Dining Room

For many of us, fall is defined by our get togethers. Family, friends, and all of their plus-ones mean our dining room sees a lot of action. Use the spaces around your dining table to show off the fall themes you choose. Centering your cornucopia on a buffet or a hutch. This will leave more room for sharing plates and passing around the table.

Mobile centerpieces will come in handy during big parties. Stage your fall centerpiece in a basket or, for truly ambitious pieces, use a rolling bar to house your largest fall displays. This approach comes with the added benefit of cutting down on diy fall crafting and maximizing the visibility of your table settings.
