Fall Decorating Ideas: Farmhouse Living Room
Some simple ways to update your living room this fall with farmhouse inspired decor and vintage touches!
Fall decorating ideas…
I am so happy to share our fall living room with you today to supply a little inspiration as you begin to dust off the wreaths and bring in the pumpkins! This year I have been inspired by natural elements like wood, glass, and of course the foliage all around.
As the leaves change, it’s almost as if nature is supplying us with free decor. I have been bringing in fresh cut branches each week as the season changes. The ripe apples and berries on the trees are true gifts from nature!
Perhaps that’s why we find so much satisfaction in seeing them in our homes? We know just what a wonderful gift the fall harvest is!
Today I am sharing a few photos from our living room along with some of my blogging buddies. If you’ve been following along our kitchen and dining room posts, I know you will love seeing their living room ideas! There is so much to be inspired by, I hope you have some fun!
One of the easiest ways to update a living room for fall is to add texture and color with textiles! A nice chunky blanket & fall pillow combination is the perfect foundation - then it’s all about the little details.
I suggest nailing down a color scheme with textiles - like greens & browns or reds & oranges - then adding in decor pieces that compliment the textiles. I picked up a few brown plaid pillows from TJ Maxx along with a set of beautiful green pillows with amazing texture. The pillows were truly the only things I purchased to update our living room this fall!
I paired them with my DIY navy linen pillows & a few neutral pillows, then simply placed a few pumpkins and fresh cut branches throughout the room. It’s truly amazing what a new set of pillows and some greenery can do for a space! Light a candle, and you’ve created a cozy spot for sipping tea and enjoying the cooler weather.
Simple pops of color:
I love an over-the-top seasonal display, but sometimes it doesn’t feel livable for the entire season. For everyday decorating this fall, use fresh cut greens & squash or pumpkins sprinkled throughout your living room. The natural colors will tie in seamlessly together!
A bowl for your harvest.
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again: corral everything! One of my favorite ways to display things is in a jar or a bowl. Turning a vase into a vessel for decor is a beautiful way to freshen up a vignette. This small dough bowl is the perfect place for a few pumpkins & squash to live for the season.
