Believe it or not, I don’t like to have my home in a constant state of change, which is why I’m sharing these Simple Fall Decorating Ideas. By swapping out and adding a few touches of the current season doesn’t have to be overwhelming or expensive. Fall decorating should feel good.
Simple Fall Decorating Ideas
As one of the Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart Influencers, this months focus was creating a budget-friendly room refresh for fall using the stylish and inexpensive items from BHG.
To make the largest impact with minimal effort and time, I focus on 3 things.
- Pillows & Throws
- Tabletop decor
- Area Rug
Updating this room took me about 30 minutes. I was able to add more warmth by adding more texture, warm tones, and nature.
Decorating with Pillows
I found a few pillows online and in the store to mix and match. I wanted lots of texture, neutral in color. Don’t be afraid to have a variety of pillows. Varying your size and shape just adds more personality. Just make sure the colors and patterns all coordinate.
These also go well with my pumpkin pillows I already had.
How to Decorate a Side Table
I always have a hard time figuring out what to place on my side tables or even the coffee table. I want it to look stylish, but not overly crowded. I also don’t want to spend a lot of money on something I’m only using for a couple of months. So, I try and use items that can transition from season to season by adding seasonal touches.
I could have placed an LED candle in this extra large lantern but why do what’s expected, right?
I like to take a hint from nature for decorating. All those mini pumpkins and gourds can create magic.
I’m thinking about piling up a few decorative pumpkins under that table.
The general rule for decorating is to work with odd numbers. I tend to stick with 3 times. I’m not counting the wood slice because I’ve stacked it with that amazing hammered metal candle.
Decorating with Area Rugs
There is no quicker way to really change the look of a room than to add a new area rug. I used this same style for the Budget Family Room Makeover I did for my girlfriend. It was a dramatic improvement that neither of us expected. I fell in love with it and decided to purchase it for my own living room. This rug is available in several sizes. I bought the largest size and it was under $150! Now THAT is a bargain!
As you can see, I was able to add simple fall decorating ideas without needing to go crazy with the oranges, yellows, and browns we often resort to for fall decorating.

Hello, thank you for the area rug recommendation, we have been looking for area rug for our living room on the budget. Follow the link you provided but it’s only available in 7’6″x9’6″ (largest) size and no option in your size (12′ x 8′) – perhaps it sold out? Thanks.
I made a mistake in my newsletter. It’s the 7’6″ x 9’6″.
