Are you looking for ways to spruce up your home for fall 2021? Here are seven simple ways to decorate your home for fall.
With summer winding down and the kids heading back to school, signs of fall are on the horizon.
My garden is starting the summer to fall transition.
The leaves are starting to change.
And the late summer blooms are inspiring my new autumn color palette for fall.
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.
In the past, I was inspired by my gardens and decorated with a rich fall palette.
It was really beautiful!
Last year, I toned it down and decorated it with deep timeless neutrals and lots of garden-inspired decor.
Before I start decorating this year, I’m shopping my home first to see what I already have that will fit my autumn color palette for 2021.
Here are 5 simple ways to decorate your home for fall 2021.

5 Easy Ways to Spruce Your Home for Fall 2021
Before decorating for fall 2021, pare down the summer decor and declutter because it’s important to start with a neutral, clean space.
Shop Your Home
After paring down the summer decor, go through what you already have.
Check the attic and basement storage bins and see what can be used for fall 2021.
For years, I’ve been collecting items and I always forget what I already have.
Plus, looking through those bins first help me stay focused on things I actually need to decorate my home for fall.
Swap Out Throw Pillows for Fall 2021
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.
Aren’t they so cute?
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 it’s super inexpensive!
I’m a huge fan of Boutique Rugs and have several throughout my home.
They have a great variety to choose from and their rugs are super affordable.
If you want to change up the look of a living space, consider swapping out the area rug.the
Add Cozy Fall Linens
Swap out your bedding, add some cozy chunky knit throws like THESE, 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?
Don’t Forget the Fall Florals
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.
Much like plants and florals, it’s essential to add pumpkins, gourds, and/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.
And Add Some Fall Decor
Tuck in some faux pumpkins and other organic textures from baskets, dough bowls or vintage items.
I love to use old toolboxes or wood crates for my florals.
But baskets like THESE with lots of detail and texture also make great vessels for holding florals, pillows and throws.
Scented Candles and Mood Lighting are Must Haves
Nothing feels like fall more than some warm, glowing fall-scented candles.
Pumpkin spice anyone?
Tip: Look for ones with timers or remotes – it makes it SO much easier to turn several on.
