Living Room Decorating Ideas for Fall

Fabulous Fall Decorating Ideas for Your Living Room

Embrace the autumn season by changing up your living room look with a few simple décor changes. The autumn chill makes a cozy living space especially inviting. Warm it up with welcoming textures and fall-inspired color and some proven fall decor ideas. Consider incorporating today’s trendy color palette of rust and teal with a few elements of texture to make your room transformation complete.

Fall Living Room Decorating Ideas - Barrel Tables

Coffee Table Ideas

Place something unexpected at the center of your conversation with a coffee table reminiscent of a 19th-century baggage cart. Or, depart from traditional tables by adding a distinctive set of coffee and end tables, like barrel tables. The wood texture and unique style give a little something extra to the usual conversation area.

Living Room Wall Decor

Revisit your walls and change out decorative wall art with something new and complementary to the fall look. Create a wallscape with an oversized wall clock and an inspirational plaque.  Try a pine tree decorative wall art that mirrors the changing season outside. Arrange a collection of canvas prints in gorgeous fall hues on a wall to subtly bring the colors of the season to your space.

Fall Area Rugs

Give your room a whole new look in an instant with a new area rug. Use rugs in the living room as a way to build your color palette without having to look at adding large new pieces of furniture. This season, choose a rust or teal-colored Torino floor rug, or one with a leaf-inspired print to support a fall look. Or, choose a patterned rug with a fall color palette of brick red, olive green or dark brown.

living room lamps

Soft Fall Lighting

Table lamps are a go-to accessory for the living room. You don’t have to use a matching set of lamps. It’s okay to mix things up a bit if you keep the lamp heights within 2 inches of each other. Use soft light bulb colors (versus cool or daylight) to give a smooth, relaxing touch.

Fall Home Decorating Ideas with Pillows

Speak through Pillows

It’s one of the best secrets to living room décor – accent pillows. No matter what the season, you can change up the mood of your room with a smattering of decorative pillows for the couch. For fall, choose a texture that fits with the seasonal color palette and mood, like tweed or velvet.

If you are on a budget, pillow covers are the quickest and easiest way to add a splash of fall color to your living room.  Create a “pillowscape” with a mix of pillows that contrast and complement the color of your sofa.

Final Touches

Drape a lighted fall garland across your mantel. Place a few pumpkins, mini gourds, and acorns along the mantel. Rest a harvest scarecrow on mini straw bales to add a little height to the arrangement.

Choose decorative accessories that also awaken the senses. Infuse your home with the welcoming aroma of vanilla or cinnamon with a glazed ceramic warmer that heats wax melts perfectly and looks as beautiful as it smells!

Add a few decorative accents like a wooden home sign, a distressed clock or a trio of ornate candlesticks to finish your new fall look.

A basket of seasonal home décor provides a beautiful finishing touch to your autumn mood. Place a pumpkin floral basket near your hearth, or string autumn garland along windowsills or staircase railings.
