Hey friends! Today is one of my favorite days — it’s Fall Home Tour Day! I’m so excited to show you our home all decorated for autumn.
So grab a cup of coffee and get ready for some fall inspiration!
Today I’m sharing our living room. This is obviously the main living area in our home. And, it’s a room that’s constantly evolving into the space that I want it to be. My goal is to have a warm and inviting home. A place that’s cozy and a somewhere that we love to spend time.
For my fall decorations this year, I decided that I wanted to add some color. In years past, I’ve tried to stick with neutrals or non-traditional fall colors. But this year, I wanted to bring in all sorts of fall colors to create a cozy feel in this space.
One of my favorite ways to seasonally decorate is with florals. I love the look of fresh flowers, but they never seem to last. And it’s always so sad when your gorgeous flowers have died. So I tend to stick with faux florals to get the “look” I’m going for.
This year for the fall season, I was drawn to the blush pinks and red tones. And I couldn’t pass up this protea flower. I used one last year too in my fall floral arrangement. I think it’s the texture that makes it feel really “fall” to me.
And the cream magnolia flower is just a show-stopper. I saw it peeking out from the top row of flowers and thought it would make the perfect centerpiece flower!
These stems are such great faux floral finds because they have “movement” to them. Instead of being stiff, they naturally fall to the side. So they were perfect for creating that natural look.
The pink leaves stem is something that’s completely opposite of what I would have decorated with in years past. But when I was shopping for my fall florals, there was just something about it that made throw it into my cart.
I placed it in a simple clear vase on one of our end tables and instantly it made the space feel like fall!
Then to add in even more fall elements, I grabbed a few pumpkins! I brought back my favorite cement pumpkins from last year. Then, I layered that with a few other small pumpkins that I found at Hobby Lobby. The white pumpkin is actually a floral pick. But I just cut off the stick and it made the perfect pumpkin decoration.
And remember how I said I decided to add more color this year? Yes, that’s an ORANGE pumpkin!
I never thought that I would be decorating with orange. But this year, I decided to just go for it! Honestly, I really love it! I love the rich tones, and the classic fall feel that traditional orange pumpkins have.
I also tried to reuse a lot of my standard decorating pieces. You don’t have to go out and buy all new things to decorate for fall. Just shop your own home for colors and textures that fit the autumn season.
There are a few things that have changed in this room since I last gave you a tour. The biggest change is the addition of blinds to our windows. We can finally create a dark and cozy space for movie nights — and also have a little bit of privacy from our neighbors.
Another change is the lamps on the end tables. I never really loved our old lamps and have been looking for replacements for the longest time. I finally spotted these lamps and fell in love with them. I really like the contrast that they bring to the space and they balance the abstract art piece so well.
Another change is the addition of this bookshelf. This side of the living room is a little awkward. Because we live in a townhome, this is where the staircase is. So there’s a half wall, some angled walls, and a full wall that isn’t very wide.
I’ve been looking for the perfect piece to fit in this space, and this bookshelf was just that!
I had so much fun decorating the shelves when we first added it to the living room. For fall, I decided to reuse my DIY wood and metal fall sign from last year and sprinkle in some pumpkins on each shelf.
When I was trying to reuse my decorations for fall, I looked for items that were somewhat neutral but had some texture and interest. This white vase can work in just about any season. But for fall I filled it with my favorite faux eucalyptus stems.
Then I created a cute vignette with this wooden house (also a great year-round decoration) and a few fall specific items.
For our media center, I decided that I wanted a large wooden sign. But instead of spending a bunch of money to buy one, I decided to make one instead!
I absolutely love how it turned out and I think it’s perfect for this space. If you want to make your own autumn wooden sign, you can see the full tutorial here. It’s super easy to make!
One of my favorite things about fall is all of the seasonal scents. Last year I stopped using candles and was using essential oils in a diffuser. But then I found out that diffusing essential oils is really bad for cats. I had no idea! And I didn’t want to make Widget sick. So, I switched back to candles.
The candles that I used to always seemed to give me headaches. But this year, I tried some new candles from Antique Candle Works. I met the owner of this small company at Haven this year and just loved her candles!
All of their candles are made from soy wax which contains nothing artificial and doesn’t produce the black soot that cheaper candles do.
There are still a few scents that are a little too strong for me, and I think that’s because I’m sensitive to strong scents. But this Fall Harvest one just smells so good. If I burn it in a large space like our living room, it doesn’t overwhelm the space. And the scent is absolutely perfect for fall!
I hope you enjoyed this tour of our living room for fall!
