The season of cinnamon, sweaters, and crunching leaves has arrived! This neutral fall living room will inspire you to decorate with staples you already have: cozy throws, pillows, books, and baskets.
Hi sweet friends! I hope that you all had a bright week. Ours started out hot, but the last few days have been breezy and bright, my favorite kind of autumn day. I enjoyed sprucing up our living room with some neutral fall decor yesterday, and would love to share it with you! So grab a cup of cocoa or coffee, relax, and come on a mini fall home tour with me.
To refresh this space for autumn, I swapped our coastal pillow covers for a moodier palette. Earthy tones echo the hues of changing leaves, and a pop of blue mirrors a crisp, clear sky.
Cozy fabrics like leather, velvet, and faux fur add warmth to our mostly neutral space. And you can never have too many blankets 😉
I’m still gathering staples for our home since we moved in less than a year ago, and this is our first fall! Pillow covers are wonderful since they can be easily washed and stored. I especially like this patterned cover that reminds me of autumn leaves.
I even broke away from my love of neutrals a tiny bit with this muted blue pillow 😉
Recently I discovered the thrill of thrifting, and I’m a bit addicted! I found this basket at my local Goodwill for less than three dollars and could not believe it. Now I’m on the hunt for more budget friendly treasures!
I’m not sure if this basket style has a specific purpose, but it seems perfect for a pumpkin.
A spray of dried baby’s breath adds a natural touch.
Side note: photographing windows is a real challenge. I shot this room three times—but I’m learning a lot in the process, so it’s okay! In the end I left my front door hanging wide open for more light. And hoped no one came to ring the doorbell 😉
Natural light makes this space glow with warmth in the afternoons. I love to rest—or fold laundry ;)—here while Bug naps.
This couch is one of our favorite pieces of furniture because it is both comfortable and pretty (score!). We picked it out before I had a good sense of my decorating style, but since it is a neutral color, it works with just about everything…
…and provides the perfect backdrop for seasonal colors and textures.
You may have already seen our ladder shelf in my subtle fall decor tips, but I recently added this bread basket—another Goodwill find for less than one dollar!
I love the warmth that simple pieces like baskets and books bring to a room.
Thank you so much for stopping by for a mini fall home tour, friends! I would love to have you follow along on this journey of cultivating a warm and inviting home with me.
