Fall is in the Air!
I’m happy to be able to share my fall decor with you and hope you’ll find at least a little inspiration here today! 😉
So the truth is, I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional fall colors. I always see the decor in the stores, or at friend’s houses and love it! But when I try to put it in my home, I’m never happy with the way it looks.
Because of this, I never used to really decorate my home for fall. A few years ago, though, I noticed a lot of neutral decor popping up in stores.
Lots of creamy white and beige colored pumpkins. I brought some home and was thrilled with the way they looked! I know it’s weird that a color loving girl like myself would want to go with a neutral fall theme, but I really like the way it coordinates with the rest of my colorful home.
Decorating a Dining Room for Fall
I usually only decorate two areas of my home for fall, the dining room and the living room. I go all out for Christmas, so for other seasons, I try to keep it simple. So first, let’s take a look at my dining room!
I was gitty when I walked into TJ Maxx and saw they had aqua pumpkins! Seriously! Aqua!
You know they were made for my home! 😉 I got a couple pumpkins and this table runner and was good to go!
I created a very simple tablescape. A large galvanized tray from Cracker Barrel with a few greenish aqua touches and both beautiful pumpkins on each side.
If you know me at all, you know I love owls, and they’re always peeking out from somewhere in my year-round decor. But of course, during fall, they all come out to play!
I decided to use the aqua pumpkins in my dining room. The pumpkins mixed with the greenery blend perfectly in here! I love the way they complement my dining room wall color. By the way, it’s Sherwin Williams Hazel.
I also got some mini pumpkins at the Target Dollar Spot and placed them inside my Pioneer Woman mini cake stand. I think they look so cute in there!
The table looks simple yet pretty, and it was definitely done on a budget, only purchasing a couple of things while also making use of last year’s decor.
On my buffet, I always start off with my tiered tray. This is probably the most versatile piece of decor I own. I change it up for every season and holiday! It’s a very inexpensive way to decorate for the seasons! Just a few things from the Target dollar spot and a few more items I already had and it was done!
I kept everything kind of neutral and organic, with a touch of greenish aqua. Don’t you love that cotton ball?! I definitely have a lot of fun switching the tray up every few months.
This wooden tray has just a few pieces on it. A wooden owl, a pretty wooden sign and some wooden beads! I placed some lamb’s ears (which I love year round!) in a pretty white vase and done!
My mirrors, which I have leaning against the wall, stay here all year round. They make the buffet look fuller than it actually is and they match any decor I put in the dining room.
I love the way the pumpkin wreath looks leaning against the mirrors.
I placed a couple more decor pieces on each side of the tray and some greenery to make the buffet look full. Lots of pumpkin decor of course! As a few of my blogger friends like to say “Give me ALL the pumpkins!”

Decorating a Living Room for Fall
Now, onto the living room!
I definitely went neutral in here. Very unlike me, I know, but I’m really enjoying it.
These little cuties were a gift from my late mother in law. She loved to go thrift shopping and she knew I love owls! She found these for me on one of her shopping trips.
I love packing things in when decorating my mantel. I basically just place a lot of things together, and lean things against the wall, and play with them from there until they look how I want them to. This big wooden owl is a new addition this year. Love it!!
The square wreath next to it is one of my favorite fall decor items I own! I found it a couple of years ago, and to be honest, I had never seen a square wreath before. I fell in love as soon as I laid eyes on it! And those tiny, adorable wooden owl in front of it were also a gift from a friend. See what I mean when I say “if you know me at all you know I love owls”?!
I’m happy with the way things came together on the mantel. I used mostly creams and browns, and a few silver touches.
Here’s a look from further back. You can see the shelves on each side are decorated for fall as well. Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins! I did throw a squirrel in there on the left side to mix things up!
I decided to keep it really simple on the coffee table and placed just a single hydrangea and pumpkin arrangement. On my couches, I added a few creamy throw pillows and a throw blanket, and the room was done!
Decorating a Kitchen for Fall
The only other spot in the house that has a touch of fall is next to my kitchen sink! I am loving the limited edition Mrs. Meyer’s soaps, candles, and multi-surface cleaner. They smell delicious!! Nothing says fall like Apple Cider!
The bottles are so pretty I like to keep them on this beautiful tray my friend made me for my birthday! A pretty wooden sign with a touch of copper and a beautiful kitchen towel with a copper pumpkin give the tray the finishing touch!
There you have it! My Fall Home Tour! I really hope you enjoyed it as much I enjoyed putting it together.
