Fall decors: how to decorate your living room for the new season
It is very natural, as temperatures drop, to need a little more comfort, especially when heading home after a cold day out. In fact, as soon as the sun is less present, we want to give a little more color to our interior. And since the living room generally sets the decorative tone of the house, it is better to start your fall decorations exactly there..
Decorating for fall doesn’t mean opting for a tablecloth with seasonal patterns or just decorating one corner of the room. There are plenty of spaces in the room that can be used for fall decor including the wall spaces, the floor, the tables, the furniture and the fireplace if you have them. Be creative and think of colors and elements that remind of the season.

Before you start to think about and prepare your decoration for fall, it is very important to properly clean and tidy the space you plan to decorate. For example, you can remove everything on the shelves or try to clean up any small spaces that remain neglected during your regular cleaning sessions. This can include small corners, baseboards, cabinet tops etc. Open the windows and let the fresh air in when cleaning! This will allow you to work faster and cool the house at the same time..
Fall decor doesn’t have to be traditional items like orange pumpkins on the coffee table. Instead, try changing up some of your wall pictures with fall decorations. Even a clock with an autumnal appearance can turn into a decorative centerpiece for fall. Or why not create an autumn wreath and put it on the fireplace ?

And while pillows with fall designs can look great, they don’t have to be tied to the fall theme. You can use pillows with cozy textures or with an accent color that accentuates the rest of your decor. In case you don’t like having a lot of cushions on the sofa, you can store them in a basket in the corner which will become a very interesting accent in itself..
If you are one of those who are always cold, then use the blankets as fall decorations. Blankets are great for covering up when watching a movie or reading a book on the sofa. They are also a very easy way to add color and texture to your living room. You can store them on a decorative ladder, in a basket or put them directly on the sofa for easier access.

If you have a fireplace, then now is the time to get it ready for fall! You can decorate it with small pumpkins, dry fall leaves, fall flowers, or with baskets. Choose the decor that best matches your decorative scheme. Try repeating elements or colors that you have used elsewhere to bring it all together.
In case you have a coffee table or side table, you can create a simple fall vignette to put on it. It can be a vase filled with fall stems or with wheat, fall flowers or pumpkins. Go for something you love and you can use it even for years to come.

Fall foliage is another very important part of the fall decor. Whether it’s a beautiful dry branch or dry fall leaves, foliage is one of the easiest ways to create a beautiful summer to fall transition in your living room. Put some green branches like eucalyptus branches in a large bowl and a small pumpkin on it will be a very chic decoration.
When it comes to furniture, furniture in gemstone colors looks great all year round but is also perfect for fall decor. The deep colors will help you create a dignified look for the cold seasons. So for example a sofa in orange and red may seem too extravagant but if you like these colors, then use them! The purple sofa on the other hand is usually for those who are more daring.

Having fall colors in the interior is a matter of taste, but it will make your fall decor easier. Copper undertones are all the rage right now and if you’ve never used them then fall is the perfect time to bring them into your home. In addition to being very beautiful in themselves, metallic accents in copper and gold are perfect to accentuate your fall decor.
In case you have a living room in neutral colors and you do not want to ‘break’ the continuity of your interior with bright colors, you can opt for shades a little more muted or even metallic as we have already said more high. These shades will also allow you to modernize your interior.
Decorative elements in neutral and natural shades are also perfect for the living room’s fall decor. The rustic style for example and the autumn decoration go hand in hand. Accessories or wooden furniture are easy to match with orange and yellow and natural elements like twigs or autumn fruits.

The warm undertones of the wood make the space appear more comfortable. And looking “comfortable” is the goal of the fall decor. A wooden bowl, a wooden figurine, a wooden tray or a wooden box are easy and inexpensive ways to incorporate wood into your interior..
The living room or living room decorated for fall does not have to be “dressed” in heavy, dark draperies and velvet pillowcases. Think of your natural color scheme as a white panel for seasonal decorations. It is always easier to combine all the shades of orange with a neutral decor than with a more colorful decor.

Gray is a perfect neutral color for fall. It pairs great with yellow or any color in the fall color palette. Gray is a sophisticated color especially when it comes to light gray. And it is very easy to find. It’s also easy to change up fall accessories on a gray background without ruining its sophisticated look.
In case your dining table is in your living room or if you have a coffee table, then consider fall centerpieces. Centerpieces and decorative table arrangements are a way to draw the eye to the decorative focal point. If you ever have more than one table, try creating larger decor on the center table and smaller arrangements on other tables in the room..
Remember, if you are using the tables for drinks or the like, you must keep their functionality. Table decorations usually include colorful autumn leaves, small pumpkins or squash etc. Arrange the decorative elements you have on the different tables or even on the fireplace to create a beautiful fall scene and seasonal decoration.
