Must-Have Home Decor Items for a Cozy Fall Ambiance

Fall is my FAVORITE season! 🍁🍂. Here is one of my former fall front porches when we lived in Kentucky!

As the leaves change and the air turns crisp, it’s the perfect time to embrace the warmth and coziness of the season in our homes. Adding Fall decor to our living spaces evokes the feelings of comfort, warmth, and togetherness. It turns our homes into a welcoming haven during the autumn months.

Today, I’m gonna to share some must-have home decor items to help you create a cozy and inviting atmosphere for fall.


  1. Pillows and Throws in Autumn Hues

Swap out your summer-themed pillows and throws for ones in warm autumnal tones. Rich burgundies, deep oranges, golden yellows, and earthy browns are perfect color choices to set a fall-inspired ambiance. Look for pillows and throws made of soft, textured fabrics like wool, velvet, or faux fur for that added touch of luxury.

  1. Fall-themed Wall Art

Update your wall art with pieces that encapsulate the essence of fall. Consider framed prints or canvases featuring autumn landscapes, pumpkins, leaves, or harvest scenes. These pieces will infuse the spirit of the season into your living spaces.

  1. Candles and Candle Holders

Candles are a quintessential fall decor item. Opt for candles in scents that embody the season, such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice, apple, or cedarwood. Place them in stylish candle holders made of wood, metal, or glass to create a warm, inviting glow.

  1. Wreaths and Garland

Adorn your front door or interior walls with fall wreaths or garlands made from dried leaves, pinecones, berries, and other natural elements. These additions instantly bring a touch of autumn to your home and welcome guests with the spirit of the season.

  1. Rustic Centerpieces

Enhance your dining or coffee table with rustic centerpieces. Fill a decorative bowl or tray with pinecones, acorns, dried fruits, or faux pumpkins for an easy and charming fall centerpiece. Pair it with a few candles to complete the look.

  1. Fall Rugs

Swap out lightweight, summery rugs for thicker, cozier ones in warm hues like deep reds, browns, or burnt oranges. The softness underfoot and the inviting colors will add warmth to any room.

  1. Fall Textiles

Incorporate plaid patterns and woolen textiles into your decor through tablecloths, table runners, blankets, or curtains. Plaid embodies a cozy, cabin-like feel, while wool offers warmth and texture, perfect for the fall season.

  1. Pumpkin Decor

It wouldn’t be fall without a touch of pumpkin decor. Incorporate pumpkins of varying sizes and materials into your home decor. Whether it’s real pumpkins, ceramic ones, or even plush versions, they add that unmistakable fall charm.

  1. Wooden Accents

Introduce wooden elements into your decor to bring in a natural and rustic feel. Wooden trays, bowls, coasters, or decorative signs with fall-themed quotes can complement your overall autumnal aesthetic.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this round up of cozy fall home decor items for your home!

  1. Love all your picks. I too love Fall and anything cozy. I love to buy myself a new Fall mug for my coffee. This year my daughter bought me a white pumpkin one. I use it daily. I can’t believe you can run 13 miles. I walk and couldn’t even run 1 mile right now. Good for you. Please share pictures on this blog. I don’t have Instagram so miss a lot. Blessings for a great weekend with family.

    1. Yes, Kathy! New fall mugs are the BEST! That is so sweet of your daughter. :)
      I will try and share some pictures of the run next week. (after I recuperate.). haha!!

  2. Good luck on that run! I am so impressed! How long did you train to be able to run this race?
    Also love all your fall items. This is my absolute favorite time of year! Be blessed!

    1. Thank you, Karlee! I started training about 12 weeks ago! It’s not been easy, and I don’t run as fast as I use to 10 years ago, but I am proud that I have pushed myself farther than I thought I could. It will be fun to do it with family. xoxo
