Fall Home Decorating. Finally.
I have been waiting for this for close to a year and a half. If you’ve been following along here, you might remember that we were somewhat displaced from our home last spring because of an oil burner puff-back. We had to pack up our entire house to get it renovated, and we never really unpacked because we put the house up for sale shortly after. Well, we had lots of drama selling the house because of town permits, but we finally closed in August 2018 and left NY for Tennessee.
I didn’t get to decorate in 2017 because, well, moving and selling the house. Last year, we were in a rental and it was a great place to start. But this year, we are finally in our OWN HOUSE! With a porch area to decorate. I’m totally over the moon to make this happen, and today I’m showing all the amazing ideas I’ve gathered up.
Fall Home Decor Inspiration
I found a bunch of fall home DIY ideas that I posted earlier, and I also made a list of amazing DIY Fall Farmhouse Wreaths to get things rolling for fall decorating. But maybe DIY isn’t your thing and you’d rather just run to Hobby Lobby or Michael’s (that’s probably more up my alley, truth be told!). If so, today is for you! The fall inspirations today are stunning. There will be no shortage of ideas for you to choose from to get your home fall-ready.
Fall Decor Trends for 2019
As you’ll notice, neutral-colored fall decor is still a big trend this season. Along with the traditional orange, golds, and browns, you’ll see lots of whites, light blues and light greens. I really am loving that softer take on fall decor! That works especially well if your home decor is lighter, and you wanted to blend with that.
There are also lots of fresh greens included in many of the displays. We usually think of the crunchy leaves and cornstalks in fall displays, but greenery that is still alive also works amazingly and looks fresh and vibrant.
There are so many ways to modify these designs to your personal taste and the space you have available. If you don’t have a mantel, for example, any table display area would work just as well. Let these inspirations be your starting point, and see where you end up!
For the sake of ease, I’ve separated them into 3 categories: Mantels and Fireplaces, Outdoor Porches, and Kitchen and Dining Areas. Because I love decorating porches so much, I even created a separate post with more Fall Porch Decor Ideas along with my pro- decorating tips!
I won’t keep you waiting any longer! Go take a look!

Fall-Inspired Mantels and Fireplaces
1| Rustic Mantel and Fireplace from The Frugal Homemaker
I love this simple, clean look for the mantel. It’s big, so it covers a lot of real estate. But take a look below! That is a beautifully staged vignette! Pumpkin flower boxes and a basket with cozy blankets and pillows. And I love that the mums made it INDOORS! Great thinking.
2| Rustic Fall Farmhouse Mantel + Free Printables from Lillian Hope Designs
What I really love about fall decor is that it can be so easy. Add in some pumpkins and leaves, and the theme just sort of develops itself! Get some rust colored candles and chippy candleholders, and you have some beautiful fall decor!

Window panes with a wreath are a simple way to create an amazing fall mantel! (Here are lots of ideas for DIY wreaths, too!). The wheat stalks are a perfect harvest touch along with the word art sign.
4| Fall Home Tour from Home Stories A to Z
This is a great example of neutral fall decor that easily translates from summer to fall. The greens in the jars coordinate perfectly with the green and cream colored pumpkins. This is a beautiful set up if your home decor is lighter and the traditional fall colors could clash.
5| Rustic Fall Mantel from Taryn Whiteaker
If you want a simple and clean color pallet, this is one for you. Sticking with just white, brown, and grey, it’s a unique and striking example of modern, farmhouse decor. The cotton stems, wheat, and white pumpkins add in some natural effects and softens the look.
6| Neutral Fall Mantel from Jaci Hodge/shabbydesertnest
I love this rustic look for the mantel. The chippy frame, galvanized pails, and chicken wire baskets all combine for a rustic fall look. The cotton stems and wheat finish the look.
7| Whitewashed Fall Mantel from My Blessed Life
A simple grapevine wreath with cotton stems bring the right dominant touches to this mantel. The sign, the lantern and rustic box with pumpkins are perfect compliments!

I love the uniqueness of the grey and white signs leading the way in this set-up. The mantel signs, the pillows, and the bunting coordinate perfectly and the pumpkins and leaves add just the right fall touches.

This is a super-simple, super-clean, and beautifully modern farmhouse look. Some candlesticks and specifically placed pumpkins are all you need to pull off this look!

Natural elements lead the way on this one! Faux leaves, berries and wheat work perfectly with the real pumpkins and flowers. The candles, rustic bench and crates add just the right cozy touch! The attention to details here is perfect!

First, I love the uniqueness of the ‘wreath’ on the door. That burlap bag filled with fall flowers is so original! And the rest of the porch is bright and inviting! So well done!
15| Fall Front Porch from Liz Marie Blog
Traditional fall colors work perfectly with this set-up! The pillows and blankets are so cozy, and the outdoor elements like mums, pumpkin and hay are styled perfectly.
16| Fall Front Porch from Hymns and Verses
Along with the outdoor objects like hay, pumpkins, and mums, the rustic signs and chippy lantern pull together this beautiful farmhouse look!
17| Fall Home Tour from House of Hargrove
I love how the vintage white door is one of the centerpieces of this porch! It works perfectly to add height and hang decor on, on the one side, while balancing the cornstalks and ladder on the other. The wooden pumpkins and chalkboard sign pull together the rustic look, along with the traditional pumpkins and hay!
18| Autumn’s in the Air Fall Home Tour from The Grace House
This is another great example of a neutral themed fall porch. That wreath on the door is stunning, and it works perfectly with the white mums and pumpkins. The two tall lanterns are the finishing touches.
19| Autumn Front Porch Ideas from Cottage in the Oaks
I just love how this one comes together. Take a look at those details…the neutral wreath, the stained wood on the crates and chalkboard sign go perfectly with the door, and the lanterns and pumpkins finish it off. Beautiful.
20| Our Fall Home – Finding Fall Home Tour from The Yellow Cape Cod
I love the originality of the green cornstalks! You don’t see that often and fall decor, and it truly is striking! The colors of the wreath and mums make this scene jump out. Love it.
Fall-Inspired Kitchen and Dining Areas
21| Outdoor Serving Area from House of Hargrove
If you have a hutch or a coffee bar, this is the way to go! Take in those details: the buntings, the signs, the 3-tiered tray, the galvanized buckets and pails. This is rustic perfection.
22| Candy Corn Love from Thrifty Decor Chick
As someone who has a slight addiction to candy corns once I get started, I can’t say enough about this. I LOVE how original it is – and how EASY! Just watch out for the kiddos on this one!
23| Thanksgiving Table Centerpiece from The Idea Room
You can never go wrong with candles, berries and pumpkins in a rustic box for a fall centerpiece. Easy to put together but a very striking effect!
24| Fall Tablescape from Oh So Lovely
How beautiful would this set up be for Thanksgiving dinner? Love the simplicity of votives and pumpkins with the natural elements or real pine cones and dried leaves. The burlap table runner pulls it together. Very lovely.
25| Fall Beverage Bar from Clean and Scentsible
This is such a fun way to change up the coffee bar – make it a hot apple cider bar! A chalkboard sign, some wheat and fall leaves do the trick!
26| Grateful from Yellow Prairie Interiors
Just a few well-placed items on the table are all you need! The vintage box is so original and works perfectly to stage the pumpkins, signs, and branches. A beautiful, rustic effect.
27| Fall Table Pumpkin Leaf Tags (Free Printable!) from Ella Claire
I just LOVE this one! It is so clean and so classy! The berries and leaves on the crisp white runner, with the wooden board to center it all. This is done to perfection. Mark this one down for your Thanksgiving table!
28| Autumn Vignette from French Country Cottage
Another simple way to make a classy fall centerpiece with neutral colors. The white pumpkins, dried hydrangeas, and some white berries create this amazing look.
29| White Pumpkins and Pine Cones from Shanty 2 Chic
What a simple way to create a striking effect! Branches, pumpkins, and pine cones in a hurricane vase – absolutely brilliant!
30| Fall Floral Arrangement from Julie Blanner
This is another one of my favorites – because we usually forget the apple when it comes to fall decor! This is a great way to get started in September, and the apples could easily be switched out for pumpkins as the season progresses. Love this one!
Every time I do a roundup like this, I seriously want to create every, single one. It’s so hard not to be jealous of this talent! But thankfully, for people who are a little ‘lacking’ like me, they’ve shared their gift with us! These fall-inspired mantels, porches, and eating areas are such a soothing way to ease you into hunkering down for the winter. And you can make decorating a family project as well!
