Home décor doesn’t have to be static! In fact, decorating for different seasons and holidays is a great way to keep your design fresh and your home festive. In today’s blog, the interior design experts at Star Furniture discuss how to decorate your home for fall using some of our all-time favorite fall décor ideas.
Choose Fall Rugs for Every Room in the House
The right rug can be both functional and decorative. Because cooler weather means cooler floors, fall rugs are great for your comfort when walking across bare floors. They can anchor the room, protect wood flooring, keep furniture from slipping, and divide large spaces. In addition to the practical functions, fall rugs can serve as a focal point or add a splash of autumnal cheer to your space. If you’re looking for fun fall decorating ideas that don’t require much work, swapping in a fall rug can create the feeling of warmth you’re looking for without much effort on your part. The best part? Fall rugs can work in every room in the house, whether you’re looking to decorate a living room, dining room, bedroom, bathroom, hallway, home office, or kitchen.

Fall Words Wall Art
Fall isn’t just about warm colors and fall foliage, it’s also the time of the year when we gather with our families to celebrate all of the things we’re thankful for. If you’d like to highlight the reason behind the season, word art is a great way to get started, especially if you’re looking to wow your guests with some stunning Thanksgiving décor.
Searching for some inexpensive fall decorating ideas that don’t have to do with fall foliage, pumpkins, or fall colors? You’ll love this Gratitude Word Art that would look perfect wherever you want to be reminded of all of the things you have to be grateful for. In addition to the minimalist typography and understated black ink, you’ll love the black and gold frame, which offers a small pop of autumn color.
Find Your Favorite Fall Display Ideas
For many, autumn is all about welcoming people into our hearts and homes. Whether it’s Halloween or Thanksgiving, fall holidays place a huge emphasis on giving and giving thanks, so make sure every room in the house has that welcoming, warm autumn energy with these fun displays of fall décor.
Create “Gourd-geous” Fall Displays
In addition to fall rugs and wall art, try out some traditional pumpkin decorations for fall. Whether it’s an array of gourds you bought from the grocery store or hand-painted pumpkins the kids decorated themselves, there’s plenty of inexpensive fall decorations that can immediately signal warmth to all your autumn guests. We suggest placing gourds around the whole house, focusing first on your entryway, as it’s the first place your guests will see. Because of their place in many Thanksgiving dishes, gourds can also be used as fall table centerpieces and fall tablescapes.
Freshen Up with Fall Flowers & Plants
One of our favorite fall décor ideas is freshening up your home with autumn flowers and plants. Whether it’s black-eyed Susans, pansies, sunflowers, or mums, there are plenty of beautiful fall flowers that can tie all of the fall colors into your décor. Looking for something with a bit more longevity? While fall flowers are great to have when people are coming over, fall house plants like crotons, anthurium, and calathea come in beautiful fall colors but won’t wither away and die at the same speed as other flowers. Not sure where to put them? Start with wherever you and your guests will spend the most time. You can assign a different flower or plant to every room in the house or mix and match into beautiful fall flower displays. Don’t have a green thumb? Artificial flowers and plants have the same great look without all the responsibility, making them a great option for autumn decorating.
Find Fall Vases & Plant Pots
If you’re freshening up your home with all of your beautiful fall flowers and plants, you’ll need to decide how to display them. While autumn flowers and plants add their own fall flair, choosing the right vase or plant pot is an inexpensive and easy way to take your autumn ambience to the next level. Looking for something sophisticated? Go with a bronze or copper vessel. Not only does it play directly into fall colors, but it’s not so specifically autumn-themed that you can’t use it year-round. Want something a little more colorful? Look for vases and plant pots that incorporate your favorite fall colors. Love patterns? Look for anything with plaid, leaf patterns, or rustic designs. Regardless of what route you go, choosing fall vases and plant pots is a great way to create the autumnal ambiance you’re looking for during September, October, and November.
Get Cozy with Fall Blankets & Bedding
Autumn means cooler weather, warm drinks, and nights spent huddled around the fireplace, so what better way to decorate than by making things even more cozy. Start by placing fall throw blankets around your living room. Not only do fall blankets add some fun flair to the room, but they’re great for guests looking to snuggle up under a warm blanket. With the stress of the holidays, fall is also the perfect time to try out the benefits of weighted blankets. But blankets aren’t just for the living room. In fact, switching out your bedding is a quick and easy way to decorate for fall. Looking for fall bedding ideas? We love this reversible bed-in-a-bag which features a deep coffee brown and a lighter driftwood color, both of which are perfect for autumn. But it’s not just about colors and patterns. In fact, the bedding material is key. For autumn and winter, we recommend switching to flannel sheets, microfiber blankets, and other materials that will keep you as warm and cozy as can be. Want your bedroom to look like it’s straight out of a magazine? Here’s how to make a bed like a designer.
Swap-In Your Fall Throw Pillows
Swapping in fall throw pillows is one of our absolute favorite inexpensive fall decorating ideas. In fact, if you’re keeping the same throw pillows on your couch year-round, you’re missing out on a quick and inexpensive way to decorate for the autumn, winter, spring, and summer months. Not sure how to get started? Try looking for throw pillows with your favorite autumn yellows, oranges, reds, and browns. Be sure to take your couch color into account, as not every throw pillow will go with every sofa. But if you have a neutral-colored couch, it should be quite easy to coordinate fall throw pillows for a splash of autumn colors. But it’s not just about fall colors! There are plenty of fun patterns and designs that speak to autumn. Plaid, for example, is great for the colder months, and it offers the potential for a wide-range of color options. You’ll also want to consider material, as colder months call for warmer materials like wool, flannel, and microfiber. Not sure how to mix patterns and colors in home décor? The interior design experts at Star Furniture have you covered. These home décor tips can also make your living room and bedroom feel more cozy.
Have Fun with Fall Tablescapes
Since fall is a time for gathering with family and friends for Thanksgiving, it makes sense that so much of the holiday emphasis is on food. Whether you’re hosting a small group for Thanksgiving dinner or simply want to make your dining room a bit more festive, fall tablescapes are a great way to bring some seasonal cheer to your home. When it comes to fall centerpiece ideas, you’ve got a lot of options. If you want to emphasize sustenance and the beautiful colors of fall, get creative with gourds. Combine different colors, shapes, and sizes to create a beautiful fall gourd display in the middle of the table. If you’re more into flowers, try finding a festive vase and create a beautiful arrangement of fall flowers for the table centerpiece. Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year?

Create a Cozy Reading Nook
Autumn weather means more time spent at home, and nothing says cozy like a designated reading nook. To get started, you’ll need to find the right location, choose the right seating, create the right ambiance, secure the right lighting, and make comfort a priority. To decorate your reading nook for fall, we recommend warm blankets in fall colors and patterns, fall rugs and wall art, and fall displays on any accompanying tables and bookshelves. Want to get really creative? Try displaying some books that showcase covers with beautiful fall colors. In fact, this resource can help you decorate your bookshelf like a designer.
