12 Autumn Home Decor Ideas for Your Living Room
What could be more inviting than an array of blankets scattered throughout the room, beckoning you to snuggle up? In our living room, we've gone a bit overboard with a total of six blankets – two on the hearth, one on the sofa, and three in a cozy basket.
2.Seasonal Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are a fantastic way to infuse a room with a seasonal ambiance. I opted for mostly neutral-colored pillows in plaid and faux fur, but you can easily incorporate some playful fall-themed pillows, such as the small lumbar pillow on our accent chair.
One of my favorite methods for creating a cozy fall atmosphere is to embrace the warmth emitted by candle flames. Consider using fall-hued candles, such as shades of orange, yellow, or brown, to infuse a touch of autumn into your decor. If you're not comfortable with real flames, LED candles like these can provide a similar effect.
4.Embrace Natural Wood
Fall is synonymous with natural elements like sticks, wood, leaves, acorns, and pumpkins. Incorporate natural wood pieces into your decor, such as the small cutting board on the coffee table, the coffee table itself, the shutters flanking our TV, the wood bead garland, or our mantel.
5.Elegant Fall Foliage
Fall foliage doesn't have to be garish or tacky. Instead of buying heaps of cheap foliage from places like the dollar store, invest in a few high-quality stems that you can reuse each year. For instance, we've used faux maple leaf twigs on our piano. Here's a little secret for making faux stems appear real – fill the vase with water! Nobody will assume they're fake if there's water in the vase. 😉 If you prefer authenticity, why not head outdoors and gather some real foliage?
6.Luxurious Faux Fur
If you didn't already know, I have a penchant for faux fur – I adore everything about it! To infuse some coziness into your fall living room, consider draping a faux fur rug over a seat, like the hearth, piano bench, or coffee table.
7.Inviting Floor Pillows
Toss a few sizable floor pillows or bean bags around to encourage your guests to sit and linger. Opt for natural hues to enhance the fall ambiance.
To maintain an elegant decor scheme, utilize real pumpkins sparingly, as we've done on our mantel, or opt for stylish ceramic pumpkins, such as the one my mother gifted me for the entertainment center. It's essential not to overcrowd your living room with pumpkins – a little goes a long way!
Garlands always imbue a festive atmosphere during the holiday season. You can try your hand at crafting a DIY pom-pom garland (in any color, although I recommend neutrals!) or choose a wooden bead garland like the one we have.
Decorative signs featuring seasonal sayings are incredibly popular. Select one that resonates with the season's spirit and place it on your mantel or hang it above your sofa or console table.
Infuse some vibrant fall colors into your living space with a brightly colored vase, like the one on my mantel. Then, fill it with neutral stems, such as farmhouse-style cotton stems or simple twigs.
Natural baskets not only provide convenient storage for items like blankets and movies but also introduce texture into your fall-themed space. Consider placing a basket on the floor near your sofa to neatly store all of your blankets.
Incorporating these ideas will help you create a charming and budget-friendly fall living room decor that exudes warmth and style. Happy decorating!"
