5 Quick Ways to Spruce Up Your Fall Decor

August 29, 2020 16 Comments

Fall is my favorite time of year. The air gets a little crisper, the leaves start to change and cozy nights in front of a fire are my jam! With the kids back in school, I'm ready to start decorating for fall. How about you?

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.

My fall cottage garden.

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

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 its super inexpensive!

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.

This beautiful dried wheat wreath would look AMAZING in my front entry.

Fall Decorating Ideas

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.

    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.
