Decorating for fall doesn’t have to be stressful. With these simple fall decor ideas, your home will embrace the season in a beautiful and simple way.

I’m so excited for today. Not only because I’m sharing a beautiful fall home tour but because I’m in good company with 6 other crazy talented bloggers that are also sharing their fall home tours.

Simple Fall Decor Ideas

You may have seen this shot of my living room last week when I shared my Simple & Natural Fall Mantel. Simple is the key for me this year. I’m trying to keep my budget very limited and instead use what I already own.

A fireplace mantel with lanterns on top, neutral decor on either side and a tall, blue armchair on the left

When the cooler temps arrive (let’s pretend it wasn’t 90 degree again yesterday!), I like to add a bit of warmth to contrast with my usually blues and whites. This year, instead of bringing in all the fall colors (like last year’s mauve, pink and navy) I’ve opted to add some subtle copper accents.

By simply adding some warmth, you can add a taste of fall to your decor

copper and navy is the perfect color combination for fall decor

I think just the hint of copper against the navy blue is so pretty! I also brought in some hydrangeas from my garden and I’m allowing them to dry out so that I can keep them for the whole season. This variety of hydrangea is called strawberry vanilla because it starts out bright white, turns to a beautiful pink and finally to green.

The pop of green from my favorite faux fiddle leaf fig is always a welcome addition in any room of my home!

I’ve kept the styling of the bookcase very simple, only adding a minimal copper accent in the form of the glass canister that I picked up at the Target dollar spot.

A wooden shelf (table height) holding a lamp and greenery on top, books on top shelf and 2 large wicker baskets of toys on bottom shelf

And because we do actually live in this house – these baskets contain some toys that inevitably make their way up to the living room from the basement playroom. At the end of the day, it’s easy for me to just scoop up whatever is on the ground and dump them into one of these baskets.

Moving in to the kitchen, you’ll notice just a touch of copper on the counter. I recently came across these canisters on Amazon and had to have them!

Full disclaimer  – my kitchen table does not usually look this fancy! But I came across these pretty blue plaid napkins at Pier1 last week and knew I had to share them with you.

switching up your napkins is an easy way to transition to fall decor

The napkin rings are (you guessed it) copper. They are in fact old napkin rings that I spray painted with Rustoleum’s Hammered Copper. The power of spray paint is awesome!!

My favorite part of my fall kitchen is my floral pumpkin centerpiece…

A pumpkin floral centerpiece is an easy DIY that costs less than $20

I did not by any means come up with this idea, although I wish I did!  It’s a very simple and effective way to create quite the showstopping fall centerpiece.

All the flowers and the heirloom pumpkin are from Trader Joe’s and the entire arrangement cost me less than $20. Basically, all you need to do is create a well in the pumpkin, pop in some wet floral foam and start adding in your flowers! I also added a tin can in the middle of my well to hold some water since I figured the pumpkin would probably just absorb all of it otherwise. If I’m going to the effort of making a floral arrangement, I want it to last for a few days at the very least!

The tealight holders are from HomeGoods and add a nice amount of contrast to all the muted colors. There’s something about amber that’s just very fall, anyway right?

The funny thing is, in my effort to embrace simplicity this fall, I’ve fallen in love with my house all over again and I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at as much as I’ve enjoyed decorating it!

Next stop is Rachel at Maison De Pax. Did you know that means House of Peace? And her fall living room radiates it! You’re going to love her simple decorating ideas! Rachel is my all-time favorite bloggers and I had the honor of meeting her at Haven this past summer. It was the coolest! She was a teacher like me, so we have a lot in common!

I’m also excited to be joining a group of over 35 talented bloggers who are also touring through part of their home ready for fall. Hop around to take in all this stunning inspiration…
