Cozy and Neutral Fall Decor



from left: one, two, three, four, five, six

I’ve been itching to decorate with neutral shades this fall, and happily found lots of inspirational images on Pinterest! Any time that I’m going to decorate, I always turn to Pinterest to find ideas. It’s easier for me to copy someone else versus come up with my own ideas in this realm. I’m not super creative, but I do know what I like when it comes to home decor.

Last week, David and I went to Target & TJ Maxx and found lots of neutral items to decorate with. I didn’t go overboard, but the house feels a bit fall-i-fied, and pretty soon I’m going to take the boys to a pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins for our front porch.

Despite it being very neutral, it still feels warm and cozy. All I need to do now it light a fire and curl up with a book!

    So simple and effective. Particularly the fireplace area.

    I am such a color girl, but I adore the neutral colors that people decorate with. Very cozy for sure. Beautifully done. ❤️?

    Oh goodness, I don’t want to do mine as I’m moving into your house. V classy touches without being tacky!

    I love the neutral decorations! I have a hard time going full on orange and black and this works perfectly!

    I love these decorations, and the color of the wall is gorgeous and versatile. Do you by any chance recall what the paint color is?

    Neutral decor is so pretty and clean, but I have to pull out the color during the holidays! I I have a 2 1/2 year old son and he is loving the bright orange pumpkins. I am definitely replacing our white lights on our Christmas tree for colored lights. Kids love color! So glad holiday decor wasn’t neutral when we were kids…boring!

    I wish I had a fireplace so badly to recreate that cute style!

    Love it! Those gold pumpkins in your black wire basket are just gorgeous! I have a similar basket on my kitchen counter that I just might fill with some pumpkins like that. Thanks for the inspiration!

    This looks gorgeous – love the neutral approach!

    Where/How do you store your decorative items when not in use – everyday things, not seasonal? As we move to bigger places (and add more children to our family) I find I am swapping out or putting some year-round decorative things “away” and then they are sort of out-of-sight-out-of-mind and I’ll go buy more little random trinkets here or there. I don’t want to get rid of things because maybe I’ll want them out again, but I don’t keep them in a place that’s easy to “shop” for them later. Does this question even make sense? 🙂 I’m 12 weeks in with two under two so my brain is still not operating at 100% 🙂

    This is the first year I really went for a neutral color scheme for my fall decor So cozy and calming! And my almost 6 year old and 2 1/2 year old still know the house is decorated special for fall:)

    Fall decor is one of my favorite things to add to my home. I love adding pumpkins here and there. The wood and flowers are a nice touch too!

    Loved the tour! Couldn’t find the black basket with handle at Hobby Lobby though. Just wondering if you purchased it recently?

  17. Posted September 27, 2016

    I LOVE this! This is exactly my style. We are moving soon, so I’m having to hold off on making any unnecessary purchases for the time being, but I can’t wait to decorate like this once we are in our new house! 🙂

    I love mostly neutral decor because you can transition it through more seasons! But at this point in my life having a young son, pretty much everything I buy I have to consider “will this immediately break if he drops it because that’s pretty likely!” How do you keep glass things so low? I swear even without glass stuff I’m constantly following my son around telling him he can’t play with certain things because they’ll break!

    I loved this post! I’ve been non-stop fall-i-fying my home with tons of items I’ve found at Home Goods. I’ll be going pumpkin picking soon as well, can’t wait!

    Having a neutrally toned decor is great because then whenever you want color you can just add a pop of it.
