Introduction to My Fall Home Decor

I LOVE to create my fall home decor! Not just for Halloween, but for the whole fall season as it’s so colorful and the best part is that any items used can stay up for up to three months. I put my things up in early September and they stay in place until Black Friday! I know Christmas decorating is a huge part of that season, but fall pumpkins, gourds, etc. are actually on display for a longer period of time.

Introduction to my fall home decor.
Here's a gorgeous silk arrangement with orange berries, sunflowers, bells of Ireland and hydrangeas in a silver urn.

And since there’s no big present buying or elaborate meal preparation in the autumn, just putting up these pillows, garlands, and candy corn items is much more relaxing. Anything goes and I find that each year I do things a little differently. I store all my years of decorations in an unfinished storage space in my basement and just poke into the various boxes as the spirit moves me. Here’s what I did this year.

The opening photo is a silk arrangement that I made several years ago. The big silver urn was from Pottery Barn and the flowers were all from a silk flower shop in Door County, Wisconsin. I just store the whole arrangement “as is” in my storeroom until September rolls around. Here are some similar flowers, here, here, here, here, here, and here Here is a post about how I made this pretty arrangement.

Here are the steps to make this arrangement as well.

Here is the Pottery Barn rustic container I used (old, very similar, here).

Here are the very realistic-looking faux sunflowers.  Pro-tip: Notice how I fold the branches under rather than cut the stems.  This allows me to use them in the future in different ways.

These are the finishing little touches where I put a few sprigs of ivy on the front right, and a bigger spray of light green foliage on the front left.

Great Room Fall Decorating Ideas:

Here are my great room bookshelves before I decorated them for fall.

My fall home decor ideas for the great room with pumpkins and fall leaf garlands.  All are faux which allows me to reuse them from year to year.

Here are the great room shelves after I decorated for fall with a faux pumpkin, a long pumpkin board across the back of the third shelf (from a craft fair) (similar, here), and a faux fall leaf garland across the top of the shelves. This is actually half of a long garland.

Here's a before image of my great room tan sofa.  This color goes so well with various decor all year long.

Here's the same coach with two orange linen pillow with a burlap edge.  I love using a solid color pillow with a more seasonal one as you'll see in the next photo.

My fall home decor has great room ideas with cute seasonal pumpkin pillows and sunflower/hydrangeas on a side table.  There is also a faux pumpkin.

Here you can see the pumpkin pillow cover as well as a faux pumpkin on the end table. Faux pumpkins are so wonderful to use throughout your fall decorating as they last from year to year and always look great! I smile whenever I open their boxes!

I like Pottery Barn pillows because they’re sold in standard sizes as pillow covers. This way whenever I switch them out for a different season, I just have to change the covers, not the whole pillow. The solid orange pillows are from Homegoods. Here are some very similar pumpkin pillows.

Here's the loveseat before fall decorating.

Now, the love seat has a knit throw on it.  This is great for increasing the coziness of this seating arrangement come fall.

Below are some pretty paisley and sunflower pillows.

My Fall Kitchen Decor:

In the kitchen, I continued the orange garlands atop the cabinets. On Black Friday, I take these down and on some years I switch out evergreen ones then for Christmas. On the island, I have Crate and Barrel glass hurricanes with cream pillar candles. Then I put up my Christmas decor, which is a story for another day.

Again I store this intact all the rest of the year in the basement. Lastly, on the kitchen counters, I have glass canisters with rooster lids that I fill in the fall with nuts, candy corn, and small pumpkins. Here are similar rooster-lidded canisters. Here are the artificial pumpkins for the canister.

Here's part of the kitchen cabinets before I put up leaf garlands.

So there you have it! All kinds of fall-inspired ideas. I have collected these over the years and really enjoy the bright accents all around my home. I hope you enjoyed my fall house tour. Please let me know if you have any questions as well as tell me what fun things you do at your home. I know some of the silk decorations might seem a bit costly, but truly, when amortized over multiple years, they’re a great value.

Happy Decorating!
