Warm woods, stripes and plaids, tasseled throws and textured baskets help make our fall living room feel fresh and welcoming for the beginning of the cozy season!
Hi friends! I’m so excited to share our living room cozied up for fall. The season of apple picking, pumpkin carving, crisp mornings, hot drinks, plaid scarves and cinnamon everything is upon us–and if that sentence didn’t make you giddy, I’m not sure what will 😉 Over the last several weeks I’ve enjoyed daydreaming about autumn and planning our fall decor, and finally decided to just go for it! Grab a warm drink and enjoy this tour of our fall living room. I’ll also be sharing tips on how to achieve the look!
Pillows & Throws

One of the simplest ways to make any room welcoming is to add pillows–they invite guests to make themselves comfortable and stay a while. I’ll admit that I have a bit of a pillow obsession! However, most of my pillows are actually down inserts and pillow covers. These are much cheaper and easier to store, so at least my habit isn’t taking up all of our closet space 😉 For our fall living room, I decided to stick to mostly neutrals but brought in the warmth of the season with a few leather and velvet covers, as well as cozy blankets. I’m loving modern boho style recently, and a combination of textures, geometric patterns and pompoms/tassels helps create that look.
Baskets & Textured Accents
For additional warmth and texture, I incorporated a large hammered gold vase, a chunky basket, and a woven hat. This year I’m finding that basic pieces such as these can add just as much character as many little decor accents. I think my style is leaning towards the simpler side as I find myself using fewer outright seasonal pieces, like pumpkins, and more of what I already have. Of course, that is just my personal taste! Pumpkin explosions are also wonderful 🙂
Warm Woods & Books
I’ve already shared our modern boho fall shelf styling in a separate post, but thought I would include a few photos here since it really pulls the look together. Shelves are a great canvas for seasonal decor and to add interest to a large wall. Since our home is open concept, we have a lot of wall space that needs structure. I love the look of a mantle with built-ins on the sides, but since we don’t have a large budget for architectural changes right now, this ladder shelf serves the purpose 🙂
I’ve so enjoyed decorating for fall this year. After nine months of not feeling great during my pregnancy (and honestly longer, since our miscarriage last May), I am just so thankful to feel relatively good and “like myself.” Sure, we are still barely sleeping some nights, but I’m so glad to have this sweet girlie on the outside 😉 Praising God for his faithfulness today.
