FALL   |   Updated September 15, 2023

Be inspired to decorate for fall like this modern transitional farmhouse living room.

No one says that you have to jump right into the fall decorating season and fill the house with orange, red, yellow, and pumpkins galore.

Since this is still early September I'm kind of easing into the autumn and can always add more of the typical fall decor and color later.

Actually, if you have a lot of decorations or don't always feel like your home feels cozy and cohesive because you've got too much going on, having two "collections" of decor can help you spread things out and alleviate some of the overwhelm that happens when you've got totes full of stuff and no clue what to do with it all.

And from there, I tried to stick to a muted gold and steel blue palette with my favorite green oak leaves tucked in various places. Like I said, it's an early fall space so later those green leaves can be replaced with more appropriate fall colors.

The gold tones were repeated in the glass vases on the coffee table and (faux) bundle of goldenrod mixed with some real branches cut from my walnut tree.

I think goldenrod is a beautiful fall "flower", but my allergies would never allow me to bring it into the house. Mixing the real with the fake makes it all seem less artificial.

On the mantel are two magnolia leaf garlands filled with pine cones, greenery, and orange berries hung asymmetrically near the edge.

To add a little more oomph to the right side, I tucked in some Christmas pine that coordinates with the greenery already in the garland. You really can't see it, but it adds some height to the portion resting behind the candlesticks.
