How’s that for a title with a lot of F’s?

Today I was scheduling Facebook posts of our previous fall home tours; my favorite is probably Amy’s fall home tour from last year (here). It got me thinking that our fall decor doesn’t change that much from one year to the next. Also, we don’t tend to buy a lot of overtly fall accessories  (velvet and white pumpkins are probably the exception to that rule). Instead, we mix in decor elements that work naturally with our existing colors and textures.

Today’s post is a quick roundup of a few of my favorite fall decor items, and you’ll see that most of them would work for a variety of decorating styles. One thing that isn’t listed is dried hydrangeas, because you can usually find them in a nearby yard. Both Amy and I use them grouped in buckets, urns, and bowls. When it’s time to move, I just pack them gently in a box and make sure they’re loaded on the top of all of the furniture!

This faux magnolia wreath is perfect for fall with pine cones and pecans. It will look great on a door or layered over a window or a mirror. I also like to hang a wreath on the front of my fireplace screen.

Leather pillows are huge right now, and while the real ones can be pricey, you only need one to mix in with your other throw pillows. Below I’ve shared two options to please any budget.

I love these huge cutting boards for year-round use, but during the fall you can turn one into a beautiful centerpiece. Just add some flowers in a vase, a stack of plates and napkins, a few pumpkins, and you’re all set. They’re also a perfect charcuterie board at your next wine and cheese party, and they’ll dress up any kitchen or butler’s pantry.

The pumpkin clove candle smells amazing and is the perfect fall color combination.  It’s pricey for a candle but once I’ve burned mine, I just pop in another votive and keep on enjoying the pretty container.

I love arched window frames; they look great over fireplaces, hall tables (layer a wreath over it!), and in stairwells. This one is a lovely weathered wood.

This gold bamboo lantern would be perfect year round. Tie a seasonal ribbon around it and use it as part of a centerpiece, on your mantel or front porch, or as part of a pretty vignette on an entry table or bar.

Last but not least, these velvet pumpkins in muted autumn tones are a hit every year and we both have them in several colors.

Use them as part of a centerpiece or plop one on a stack of vintage books (and see those dried hydrangeas below?!).

Most of these items will work through Thanksgiving and into the Christmas season with a few minor changes, and a couple (the window, the lantern, and the cutting board) will definitely fit in your decor year-round. I’ll also add a few more ideas to our Amazon storefront; just click on the home decor section.
