Fall decor ideas for your living room

1. Swap your through pillow covers for mustard yellow


Mustard yellow is a fantastic choice for throw pillow covers this time of the year! It’s a warm and inviting color that perfectly captures the essence of the season.

They come in all sorts of shades, from a rich, sophisticated gold to a soft and dusty yellow. You can find them in luxurious velvet or cozy linen, with fun textures or cool patterns.

The key is to find a shade that complements your existing decor and a material that fits the vibe you’re going for in your living room. Maybe you want something super glam, or perhaps a more relaxed and rustic feel? Mustard yellow can do it all!

Remember, balance is key. While mustard yellow is gorgeous, too much can be overwhelming. Use it as an accent color with other neutrals or cooler tones like greys or blues. And don’t be afraid to mix and match different shades and textures for a truly unique look.

2. Create a fall inspired Tray


A fall tray is an easy budget-friendly way to decorate your living rom for fall.

You can Fill it with mini pumpkins, colorful leaves you pick on your walk, or pinecones for a rustic touch of nature. Then add a fall-scented candle to complete the cozy vibes.

To make it more visually interesting, remember to vary the heights of your items. This will add depth. Also try not to overcrowd your tray, so it remains visually pleasing.

3. Get a chunky Knit blanket in Deep Brown


Here’s the thing about chocolate brown – it’s one of the ultimate fall colors. It’s warm and inviting, and pairs perfectly with all those other cozy tones like orange, red, and yellow. Even if you’re not going all out with fall colors, it looks fantastic with creams and beiges for a more neutral vibe.

Another reason why i’m totally obsessed with this blanket is that they’re incredibly versatile, you can use them year-round for an extra layer on chilly nights, or drape them over a chair for a pop of color and texture.

4. Add a fall inspired centre piece


A vase overflowing with fiery maple leaves or pampas is another easy and budget-friendly way to bring fall into your living room!

It’s simple: buy ready made pampas or maple; OR collect those gorgeous red, orange, and yellow leaves on your next walk and pop them in a vase.

Remember, like a fall tray, keep it visually interesting! Vary the heights of the leaves in the vase for some depth, and don’t overcrowd it so the beauty of the fall foliage can shine.

5. Keep it Neutral


Want a fall looking living room that’s stylish and cozy, but not too flashy? Then a neutral fall decor is for you!

Here’s the idea: instead of bright orange pumpkins, use ones in creamy white or beige. They’re still fall-themed, but way more elegant.

Then add a little bit of burnt orange, mustard or brown as an accent color. This look is simple and stylish and yet will bring fall vibes to your living room!
