It’s August, which means I’m officially daydreaming of fall decorating. Don’t panic, you will not find any pumpkins in my house–yet. But for my fellow autumn lovers, I wanted to share fall living room decor ideas to help you get inspired for the season ahead! This post features cozy blankets, throw pillows, fall stems, artwork, and more. We will also take a walk down memory lane through my last six years of blogging, so keep reading until the end to see a photo from my very first blog post. (Of course, it was a post about fall decor!), Grab a mug of coffee and tea and let’s get started.

One of the simplest ways to refresh your living room for fall is to swap out your pillow covers. I like to use these or these down inserts and mix and match pillow covers that I have collected over the years! Last year I chose a color palette of sage green, terracotta, maroon, brown, and beige.

2. Realistic Fall Stems and Leaves

Secondly, faux stems are a great choice for fall living room decor. You can use them again and again and style them in different ways throughout the season. Personally I love artificial fall leaves in a large stone vase. Not only do they make a statement, but they add an organic touch to your living room.

The following year I brought in deeper colors and warm wood tones for fall. Our pinch pleat drapes were one of the biggest changes, but small updates like a dark wood chain and faux leather woven cubes added to the moody look. Finally, I mixed in brown and burgundy pillows for a darker color palette.

Cozying up with a book and a mug of tea is my happy place, so I’m all about having throw blankets at the ready! A plaid or checkered throw always feels like a good fit for fall, and these faux fur blankets are my absolute favorites for chilly days.

8. Fall Living Room with Flameless Candles

Last year I purchased these flameless pillar candles and we enjoyed them all through fall and winter. Since they are LED lights, the batteries last for a long time. They also come with a remote! (Safety note: be sure to keep the remote out of reach of children and pets, because it contains a small battery.)

    Where do I find the chair in one of your photos of wood/fabric, with a rounded , horizontal wooden piece in the back ? Is the vision fixed so won’t move? Not the one with a vertical piece? I worry with the chair and the vertical piece that the loose cushion would always be moving..
    I’ve never bought target furniture before so am a bit skeptical.. I would appreciate your answer asap because I’m ready to move in this .
    Thank you
