Minimalist Neutral Fall Decor

October 4, 2017

I debated posting this, because I feel like I have shown so many little pieces of our fall decor on my IG feed, but this is a good place to have it all together for anyone that wants inspiration all in one place!

Neutral Fall Decor Letterboard

I have wanted a letter board forever. I had originally collaborated with a company, but they couldn’t get the board to me in time, so I grabbed this Word Up Premium Felt Letter Board from Amazon. I am actually glad everything fell into place the way it did, because I really prefer the white frame, which I feel like is atypical for these boards. That amazing silhouette piece is from Le Papier Studio (they were so kind to offer you guys a coupon code- use the code “LPS15” for 15% off!!) and the frame can be found at Target.

I got SO many compliments on these pumpkins! The smallest green one is from the Dollar Spot at Target, but the other three are from HomeGoods, which is always unfortunate, because I can’t link them for you guys!

DIY Green Pumpkins
If you follow my stories, you know that I had a hard time finding me some green pumpkins this season. So, I made some! I grabbed some individual pumpkins from Hobby Lobby’s wreath section and painted them using this FolkArt Home Decor Chalk Paint in Sage. They were the perfect color to go with all of the other pumpkins I had collected! I did two coats on each pumpkin. The white and gold pumpkins are from Hobby Lobby also and came in a mesh bag.

I picked up this cute “gather” banner from last year’s Target Dollar Spot fall selection. I hung onto it and it worked perfectly for this years white-green-navy theme!

Navy Plaid Fall Decor

Those sweet little velvet pumpkins are from… drumroll… the Target Dollar Spot, as well as the sprig of glittery brown pinecones in the basket. Greenery and candles are from Hobby Lobby.

Neutral Fall Foliage

So here is a fun little hack. Those greenery pieces are there year-round. I just add or subtract little seasonal pieces to make it work a little better with our decor. I grabbed those little brown sprigs from HomeGoods in their pre-made mixes.

Blue Plaid Neutral Decor

I like throw pillows… I think switching them up a bit, can make a huge difference. Same thing with throws! This throw typically stays out year-round- except for maybe Christmas. The pillows in front are from HomeGoods and are typically the “staple” pillow, depending on the piece that transitions. I found these Gingham covers to match the banner over the fireplace from a local shop called OhhSEWDarling. Be sure to check her out, she also has super cute wood signs and other sewn goods. She was nice enough to offer all of my readers 10% off their order with the code “SEWDARLING10”.

This lone ranger almost didn’t make it into the fall decor. The gold is a bit shiny for me, and I didn’t like the way it meshed with the other pumpkins I had picked up. But, it has navy stripes and is super cute, so I knew I had to find a new home for it. Here is where she landed and I quite like the fun pop of quirky when I walk in the door!

This year’s decor is still pretty minimal, even for me, but we traded out all of our traditional fall decor this year, so now we’re building back up the collection!

    I love the clear and beautiful feeling your house gives me. I am beyond jealous. I feel like my house is a constant battle with things so the last thing I want to add is more items, which is said cause I love the look of decorating for the seasons! Especially now that I don’t have my classroom to decorate 😊❤️ definitely pinning some of these for later!

    Aw, thanks!!! I feel like sometimes we don’t have enough STUFF. I like the cozy, welcoming feeling of homes that have lots of little trinkets and things on the wall! It makes it inviting!

    Gorgeous!! I’m usually a huge fan of orange in the fall (and all the time) but I love this! These are the colors I use for Spring and Summer, but you make me want to keep them all year ’round. Thanks for the great tips!

    Your decor is so on point! I love all of the little details. I love sticking to a color palette when decorating for holidays. Right now, my fall palette is orange, gold, and green.
