Today’s post features the 13 fall decorating goodies I found in my latest haul. The primary colors are really subdued so it’s seasonal yet also very chill. I hope you like them as much as I do!
The room I’m featuring in this post is our family room. I call the style “Modern Arts & Crafts”, which is my own creation as far as I know. If you want to read more about that, check out my post Family Room Takes a New Look at Arts & Crafts or visit our HOME TOUR page!

Totally random note … I tried a different editing technique on these photos. They have a more grainy look, which appeals to me for this room. Love to hear what you think!
Fall DEcorating with restraint
OR, another way to put it … edited. Although I go a little off of this at Christmas, the rest of the year I like my home to have a limited amount of non-essential “clutter”. That includes decorations. While I’m not a true minimalist, my style definitely leans in that direction.
So when it comes to decorating for any seasonal swing, I try to keep it pretty low-key. Fortunately, my latest haul includes lots of harvest tones that are very neutral. They don’t overwhelm the space and instead give it a really chill vibe.
As it happens, the beginning day of having this room decorated, was one of our first cold rainy days leading into fall. Perfect to take in the full effect of these great new accents.
Fall decorating starts with the mantel
The natural place to start is the mantel. I couldn’t decide whether to keep the macrame hanging up as I began. Fortunately, it blended in perfectly!
I love the worn vase with what looks like dried wildflowers surrounded with a garland of leaves in golden colors. I added pumpkins on each end that harmonize so well with the vase. It’s such a simple display. I relax a bit just looking at it, especially with the candles going. Can’t wait to put on the fire!
My perfect little display area
When I selected the crazy wide TV stand, my mind knew it was perfect for adding seasonal displays. What I did, that my youngest daughter finds bazaar, was to place it off-center with the TV on one side leaving more room on one end. It all balances as I put a large basket for throws between the piece and an exterior door. There is, as a result, a visual balance for the eye.
Now as you look, please feel the joy I experienced when I found this red little truck. I have a thing with red trucks but typically, they only show up at Christmas. Now, since this one is season-neutral, I get to use it for a variety of different ways. Here, it brings the burnt red color from the carpet up a couple of feet.
The little red truck is paired with a vase that matches the one on the mantel, keeping harmony as there aren’t new colors introduced. A few candles and pumpkins are added in completing the scene. It makes me think of going to the pumpkin patch (in a little red truck, lol).
Accent tables lift the eyes up
There are two additional spaces that I accent here for fall. The first is the coffee table. I found two adorable metal wire pumpkins that encompass a battery candle. Two is something to note. I don’t like decorating in even numbers. So I added a tall bundle of dried wheat to make a triad display.
The bundle of wheat also lifts the eye up to the artwork over the couch. I love that artwork and the colors are perfect for fall so that’s a really happy win.
For the gathering island, I had to keep it super minimal. It’s a great spot for another full display like the mantel, however, we eat there regularly so I had to keep it simple.
I found another bundle of dried wheat to coordinate with the one on the coffee table. Fortunately, I have a carved wood bowl-tray-thing that is the perfect size! I added mini river pebbles to fill in the gaps. This stone is the same that I use in the glass jars sitting on the stone hearth.
Okay, I have to try to work your olfactive senses (yes, that’s a word … I looked it up) as I try to describe the pillar candles. I picked them for their size and color. That’s it. I mean, when you’re shopping with a face mask the smell of things is hard to denote. Oh man, when we lit those bad boys the entire room said, “Hello, Autumn … let’s have some pumpkin bread!” (I don’t like pumpkin pie). They smell like Mother Nature gathered up the best of pumpkin baking and put them right in a candle as a gift just for me! Okay, you can buy pumpkin candles too but we’ll keep it our secret. Wink Wink.
