Natural Fall Decorating Ideas

It finally feels like fall. The kids are back in school, the leaves are dropping and the air is cool, crisp and comfortable. So you know I’m excited to decorate for fall. In fact, I have a few natural fall decorating ideas I’m excited to share with you today.

For those of you joining from Savvy Southern Style, it’s so nice to “meet” you! Those of you familiar with my site know that I love integrating natural fall elements, especially foraged finds in combination with store bought flowers and pumpkins, making fall decorating especially easy and inexpensive!

Our front porch includes fresh cut wood for the fireplace and heirloom pumpkins.

I’ve added a couple of magnolia branches in the entryway that will last for weeks.

A simple pumpkin on stacked baskets makes a beautiful fall accent for the family room.

Pretty hues of pinks and blues are unexpected, but feel perfectly fall with rich texture brought in through the pillows and flowers.

I’m really enjoying navy this fall, so I incorporated it through linens like this pretty hand towel. It’s a beautiful accent to pinks and greens.

In the nearby breakfast room I have a warm burnt orange rug which makes the space feel cozy, especially during fall.

I’ve also added branches of magnolia to give the bar / serving cart height. I like incorporating a few of the same things throughout our home to make it feel continuous.

Decorating for fall should be easy – just a few little adjustments rather than an entire overhaul. Add a cozy throw, a few pumpkins or even a few mums for a big impact without a lot of effort or expense.

These pretty mums were just $5/each at Whole Foods. I’ll let you in on a little secret – I don’t even pot my plants! I just simply drop them into planters in their plastic containers. If they sink too low, I look to the recycling bin for a box or bag or two to prop them up. This makes transitioning from one season to the next a breeze!

Natural Fall Decorating Ideas

When selecting natural fall decorations like pumpkins and mums, I consider the variety of ways I can use them. While they may grace our garage for now, when we have guests over they may line the table along with candles. Natural elements are long-lasting and portable and can be used in a variety of ways throughout the season.

    I always first thing about decorating with nature for fall and I do the same thing just placing the potted flowers in pots. Great ideas and happy fall!

    Julie,
    1st off let me say I’m so glad your house and décor is not the same o same o white everything in the house!! I love the darker pieces you have in your home and its so refreshing and different than what everyone else seems to be doing. All that white gets to be boring after a while. In a year or two, they are going to be stripping all those painted pieces and wish they hadn’t painted them at all! Your home is cozy and inviting and especially warm looking. Interior design, just like fashion, changes because the mundane goes away and something new takes its place. I’m thinking the darker colours will be here for interiors very soon. Well done you!!

    • Julie says:

      Thank you, Suzanne! I truly appreciate your thoughtful comment. I actually want to strip a piece I painted 6 years ago to restore it to it’s original beauty and integrity! The regret! I feel wood makes a home feel warm, though I love calm, light and bright interiors! I hope you have a beautiful weekend!

  • Love all of your natural accents Julie and one of the things that caught my eye is how your garage doors are painted in the same tones as the rest of your exterior. That was a much debated subject here when we had the house painted a few months back!

    Hi Julie!

    First of all, thank you so much for joining us! And as you know, I’ve been a fan of your simple but stylish blog forever and it’s no surprise that you have again pulled off an effortless way of incorporating fall without going over the top!

    Your flowers are gorgeous! And I love the pumpkins scattered here and there in an almost sculptural way. And I can I tell you a secret? I plop my mums into the pots as well. No re-potting for this girl:)

    So very glad to have you with us… happy fall!

  • Julie, your floral arrangement is just perfect for fall! Light enough to be pretty, yet including the feel of fall, nonetheless. So many lovely subtle touches. Beautiful!!

  • Julie your gorgeous garage doors get me every time and I adore all your fall touches! So beautiful lady!

  • Snap says:

    Very pretty and very simple. I’m all for simple. Getting older and life (and decorating) should be simpler! I love the fall and the coming holidays and this year — simple! Happy Monday!

  • Cindy says:

    Blessings,
    Cindy
