Let’s get started with my neutral fall decor ideas for the home !
Today, we’ll begin in the family room where I decorated my mantel with neutral fall colors…
Simple Neutral Decor on a Rustic Mantel:
If you read my blog regularly, you know that I usually decorate with more color. For some reason, neutrals just felt right this fall so I went in that direction. After all, the neutral colors fit right in with my stone fireplace and rustic wood mantel.
Recently, I bought the framed art print and decided to use it as my starting off point. Keeping it simple, I just leaned my large black mirror with the art print against it. Then I filled a vase with faux stems to mimic the greenery in the artwork.
At first, I was going to add more accessories to the mantel but then decided to keep it clean and simple.
The natural textures in the wood on the hearth added to the rustic feel.
Neutral Fall Family Room Decor:
Since I went with neutrals on the mantel, I carried those colors into the rest of the room. Of course, I didn’t go as far as changing the rug, but did swap out some of my navy throw pillows. Also, I shopped my house and ended up switching my blue lamp for the black one.
Since my rustic coffee table already coordinated well with my fall color scheme, I just laid a throw blanket on top for some extra autumn coziness. Did you notice the window pane pattern in the throw blanket actually coordinates with the window pane pattern in my spindle chair?!…Totally not planned!
Then I added more textures to the coffee table with my rattan tray and some natural elements. Pampas grass is trendy this year so I added a small vase filled with some. Also, I filled a wooden dough bowl with wicker spheres to continue the layers of texture.
As I mentioned, I went with neutral pillows for the family room. Even though I haven’t gone pumpkin crazy yet, I just bought the neutral pumpkin pillow on the chair. Since the design is so subtle, you might not even notice it.
Don’t worry, I’ll be bringing out more pumpkins once we officially change seasons! If you read my blog, you know I love decorating with white pumpkins!
Neutral Fall Decor Ideas for the Home (The Kitchen):
Since my family room opens right into the kitchen, let’s head in there to see my neutral decor. This fall, I took away most of my blue and replaced it with natural elements to go with the whole neutral vibe. Adding textures was pretty easy since I already have rush seats on my counter stools.
Since I’m always looking for an excuse to create a table setting, I pulled out the black and neutral decor. For extra coziness I placed a couple throw pillows to the chairs. These pillows are actually indoor outdoor pillows but the colors worked with the room. Actually, indoor outdoor pillows are great to use at a table because they clean up well…a helpful tip for a messy family!
Yes, I say this is neutral decor but I had to add a tiny bit of yellow to the table.
The neutral accessories needed something extra to liven them up. Plus, it gave me a reason to pull out my favorite amber glasses. Smoked and colored glass are really popular these days…but I’d love them whether they’re popular or not!
With these neutral colors, you can easily transition this table from fall to Halloween. See how I used some of the same pieces and colors for a Halloween table setting in a previous year.
Some wheat and wooden candlesticks and amber vases subtlety dress up my stove mantel. To coordinate with the plaid on the table, I wrapped the candles in some checked wired ribbon. It’s fun to add a little bit of pattern here and there.
And not only did I add some brown/amber glass vases to my stove, but I placed a few in my windowsill. I’m just loving these for fall this year!
And that brings us full circle to the view back into the fall family room!
Whether you’re going with neutrals or traditional fall colors, I hope I’ve given you some ideas to decorate your home for fall!
Neutral Fall Decor Idea Takeaways:
- Choose your colors from artwork or an inspiration piece.
- Carry the same colors through your rooms.
- Swap out colored pillows for neutrals.
- Drape some fluffy throws over your furniture.
- Bring out the textures.
- Wrap your candles in ribbon. (Only if you aren’t lighting them…or just used battery operated.)
- Don’t “over” decorate…sometimes less is more!
