I love using neutral colors to decorate for fall. Check out how many different ways you can use faux or real fall leaves!
Today I’m sharing my only fall post! I’ve had to cut back on seasonal decorating this year with the start of my new interior design business but I couldn’t let my favorite season pass without a post!
It’s also time for our monthly series, Simply Home, so be sure to check out the fall decorating ideas that my friends have shown at the bottom of this post.
I LOVE neutral colors and I’ve always decorated for fall with neutral, even though traditionally fall is all about dark browns and oranges. I boycotted that with my purple and green fall post back in 2016. Do you remember that? Even the title said, No Orange Allowed!
I love decorating for fall with just a few simple things like acorns and pine cones I got at the dollar store. I just put them in an ironstone dish. Not bad for $2 decor, right?

I also got some new pillows and a throw for fall this year!
I recently bought two Lucia chenille pillows in 22×22 inch size.
I also got this heathered boucle fringe throw in oatmeal.
The middle pillow I’ve had for years and I cannot remember where I bought it from!
And don’t pay any attention to my split couch. We moved it around from a sectional to a regular couch to open up the space. We will get a new couch for this space eventually but this one is so cozy we’re not ready to give it up just yet!

Floral Centrepiece with Faux Fall Leaves
Just use wire cutters to cut the stems off the branch.
I put the cream rose berry stems (ball-type stems) around the outer edge with the cream maples leaves in the middle and the tan heather berry stems (fluffy looking stems) I poked in a few places around the leaves.
I also stuck some fall leaves in this concrete planter that resembles a basket (similar planter here).
I love the neutral beige and grey colors in my living room.
