It’s fall, y’all. Time for the real pumpkins. That means it’s the perfect time for adorable flannel t-shirts in muted tones, hayrides enjoying the changing scenery, and warming bowls of soup while watching your fave football team. The other staple of the fall season? Decorating with warm colors! After all, nobody can deny the warm, fuzzy feeling they get when they enter a neutral living room decked out in fall seasonal decor with rich colors and a soft glow.
However, adorable fall decorations like an orange sofa may be on the back burner if you’re on a tight budget. That doesn’t mean they need to stay there, though.
Push your dreamy fall wonderland to the top of your list and start decorating with some throw blankets- even if you’re on a budget – with these top seven fall living room decor ideas that will appease any bank account.
Indoor Fall Decorations (Budget-Friendly)
Okay, dream team. Are you ready to get some seasonal decor? While you can worry about outdoor decor later, right now, it’s time to focus on turning your neutral living room into a charming, Instagram-worthy fall getaway with a pop of color.
One easy way to bring the fall season to your living room with natural, neutral colors is to bring outdoor elements inside. Here are the top three ways to use natural elements as your gateway to a fall-themed paradise.
Aside from the weather, the flowers are the most beautiful aspects of fall thanks to their variety of colors. But who says magnificent fall flowers have to stay outside? Bring them inside with some dried flowers like a flower arrangement with some orange berries. The earthy tones and light tones exude fall, and you can arrange them any way you wish for a seasonal touch. (Pretty tree stump coffee table arrangement, anyone?)
Fall foliage? Yes, please. If flowers aren’t your thing – or you want to add plants in addition to your lovely fall flowers – then you’re going to want to add some seasonal plants to your living space. Who could resist these maple leaves decorative bowls? Or how about this set of two sunflowers that brighten the space up like a city farmhouse?
If you want to purchase real plants, you can find many at your local store. If you’re lucky enough, you might also have some beautiful fall plants hanging around in your front or backyard.
Wreaths look incredibly plastered on front doors, but they’re not reserved for the exterior of your home. They can easily be indoor fall decorations, too. That said, bring the magic of the wreath inside and hang it on your living room wall. You’ll be glad you did. Need some inspo? This fall wreath showcases the most beautiful fall colors and colorful leaves without costing an arm and a leg.
From pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin patch hayrides, one dominant theme for fall is “pumpkins.” And they just so happen to look great everywhere – including your living room. With that said, you need some pumpkins to rev up your fall living room decor.
If you’re someone who prefers real fall room decor, you want to go the baby pumpkin route. Baby pumpkins are relatively cheap, so you can buy more and spread them around your living room. The more pumpkins, the merrier, right?
For those that want the luxury of being able to reuse their fall living room decor year after year, the only option is faux pumpkins. You can buy them individually or get a bigger bang for your buck by purchasing a set of artificial pumpkins.
Looking for a set that’s a little less traditional than the orange pumpkin? This set includes white pumpkins, plaid pumpkins, and even velvet pieces to spice up your fall color palette for your room decor.
Add Warmth to Cool Color Schemes
Baby, it’s cold outside. OK, so it’s a little too soon for traditional winter tunes. But the temperatures are dropping, so it’s perfectly fine to add warmth to your fall living room decor – while still sticking to your budget game plan. Here’s how.
Your indoor fall decorations may give the appearance of the season, but does it smell like fall, too? If not, then you need to get your hands on some fall candles. Not only will candles make your living room extra cozy, but they will emit the undeniably pleasant aroma of fall, whether you’re a spiced pumpkin gal or believe apple is the superior scent for fall.
And if you’re someone who simply can’t decide on a “flavor,” opt for this handy assortment of fall candles that includes four different incredible fall smells.
Decorate the Fireplace to Emphasize It
With chillier temperatures on the horizon, you will be using your fireplace more than ever. Although whether you’re using it currently or not, there’s no harm in making your fireplace the focal point of your living room.
That said, what better way to put together your fall living room decor than by decorating the fireplace? A fall-themed garland is an obvious choice to bring your fireplace to life, although this pumpkin scarf gives garland a run for its money. You can also add fun and adorable signs or picture frames if you’re into that sort of thing.
