5 Quick Ways to Spruce Up Your Fall Decor

Are you looking to freshen up your fall decor? Me too!!! I’m on the hunt for some pretty neutrals and found a bunch of gorgeous fall decor I think you’ll love too.

With the temps cooling down, the leaves are changing and we are getting back into some sort of school routine.

I’m a little sad that my older two went back to college so I’m diving right into fall decorating to take my mind off them leaving the nest.

Last fall, I was inspired by my gardens and decorated with a rich fall palette.

It was really beautiful!

But this year, I’m thinking about toning it down a little and decorating with deep timeless neutrals and lots of garden-inspired decor.

Before I get started decorating, I’m shopping my home first to see what I already have that will fit my theme.

Here are 5 quick ways to spruce up your fall decor!

5 Quick Ways to Spruce Up Your Fall Decor

Swap Out Throw Pillows

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to change out my throw pillows.

Oftentimes, I just buy new pillow covers because they are easier to store than actual pillows.

But throw pillows add such a vibe when it comes to seasonal home decor. So consider changing them out seasonally to freshen up your home.

I am totally getting these cute pumpkin pillows for my living room.

Change Your Area Rug

Way back when I probably wouldn’t suggest this as a change, but there are SO many great affordable area rugs out there that make it so easy to change it up for the season.

I am really loving this one and this one.

Both are on sale now, so it’s a great time buy!

Add Cozy Fall Linens

Swap out your bedding, add some cozy chunky knit throws, and change bath and kitchen towels.

Depending on the vibe I’m going for, even a small fall-inspired towel can make a big impact in a small space.

I LOVE the fall color palette of these bath towels.

Aren’t they gorgeous?

Fall Decorating Ideas
Adding faux or real pumpkins to your home decor instantly gives the fall feels. Look for pumpkins with different colors and textures to add more visual interest.

Don’t Forget the Fall Florals and Decor

I’m a huge fan of plants and flowers, both real and faux. They make spaces feel more alive, provide lots of character and help boost the mood.

Tuck some faux autumn leaf sprigs on a shelf and bam, you’ve got a fall vibe.

Much like plants and florals, it’s essential to add pumpkins, gourds or berries to spruce up fall decor.

Even one simple pumpkin on a shelf can spruce up fall decor.

Scented Candles and Mood Lighting are Must Haves

Nothing feels like fall more than some warm, glowing fall-scented candles.

Pumpkin spice anyone?

I’m also a huge fan of battery-operated flameless candles and string lights.

Tip: Look for ones with timers or remotes – it makes it SO much easier to turn several on.

Outdoor Fall Decorating Ideas
I loved my outdoor fall decor on the front porch and plan do do something similar this year.

  1. These are great ideas. I’m almost jealous with all this wonderful coziness you’re creating, that it’s spring in my neck of the woods – almost, but not quite. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Stacy – I love all your ideas and your calming fall palette. So inspiring and right up my alley! I hadn’t thought of changes rugs, but you’re right there are so many affordable and gorgeous options. xo

  3. In my plan to simplify my fall decor this year I have slowed down my decorating and am enjoying myself more than in the past where I was totally exhausted after hauling out all those plastic crates. I have limited my self to two themes. Our family room is Pears and Pumpkins and my kitchen Apples and Acorns. Outside are real pumpkins,gourds dried grasses and florals with some lanterns using faux candles on timesaving a pretty wreath on the door.
    Have a beautiful autumn and thankyou for sharing your lovely home and gardens with your readers.

  4. Stacy, I love all your tips for fall! I love the idea of changing out your area rug. How fun to decorate your beautiful home for fall. Wishing your girls well on their new semesters!
