Outdoor Fall Decor and Patio Ideas

This post contains affiliate links

As the days are getting shorter and cooler, I'm capitalizing on all the time that I can and spending it outdoors. I'm going to miss warmer weather! I decided this year, I wanted to make my patio decor more inviting for fall and evening hangouts. I found a crazy good deal on some pumpkins and went all out! I attempted to grow pumpkins this year, but only got one. I think I planted them where too many little feet walk. Silly me to think they would just step over them when they got in the way.

The fall patio decor mainly consists of pumpkins, lanterns and my plants that have somehow made it throughout the year without me killing them :)

I bought this half wine barrel two years ago for our patio table and love it. It has survived two crazy winters and just keeps looking better each year! It's lightened up so much. This was the perfect little perch for some pumpkins and other decor.

My favorite thing to do while sitting here enjoying the warm weather is to read. These old books are the perfect addition for new reading. I also found this plaid shawl on Amazon, and then a week later, found the exact one at a yard sale. I currently have both! We will see if I ever get around to returning the other one :) I think it's a perfect piece to go from fall into Christmas.

Some of the lightening in these pictures are a little different. I got it at sunset so the lighting changed a lot!

These cushions are a must if you have little ones! We have a set of 4 and love them for indoors and outdoors. They are the perfect little seat!

As I said, lanterns were a must out here. We got rid of our fire pit with plans on building one in the back corner of our yard. Since that hasn't happened yet, I like to give this area a glow with candles!

And here's a view at night. I'm going to be so sad to see this all go and be full of snow! We are forecasted to get snow this week and I'm seriously sick about it. I'm not ready! I really need to move more south, ha! I love these string lights on my privacy screen during night time. They offer the perfect glow!

And just so you know, Aero our new kitty, thinks that these cushions are pretty good also :)

Here's a full view of my outdoor fall decor! Look hard enough and you may see some amazing chalk art :)...and probably some bugs.

I hope you are enjoying this time of year and embracing fall! I'm getting there, slowly. I'm definitely not ready to start decorating for Christmas in 3 weeks though...ahh! Yep. That's a scary thought!

Cozy Fall Bedroom Decor Ideas | Tour 2021

This post contains affiliate links.

Happy October! I'm not sure how we skipped over September, but we did :) I realized that in about 32 days I'll be decorating for Christmas and that seriously hurts my heart...no, my soul. It's a deep deep down hurt. I know some of you all love Christmas, I'm just not ready for that time of year yet! Nor that kind of weather! My mind is still in July. It is helping that our trees outside are starting to change and the weather is getting slightly cooler....and pretty much just plain cold at nights. 

This week I have been sharing all my rooms decorated for fall. You can find the links to my other rooms at the bottom of this post. Next step on my fall home tour is my bedroom! I didn't always decorate for seasons in my room, until I did. ha! No, but for real. I realized that decorating for seasons helps keep my bedroom feeling new, which ultimately helps me keep it clean more often. And that is a definitely a good thing.

The fall decor in this room has followed the rest of my house in staying pretty neutral with pops of greenery. The biggest change in here is this amazing bench! I bought it this summer along with the matching table and other bench. This has been on my porch; the others found their way into the basement for a future project. I bought the set because of this bench. It used to have a dark stain that was coming off in areas. I decided to give it a good stripping and sanding, and then gave up. It looked awful. Then I decided to see how it looked inside my bedroom with no intentions of keeping it in here. Well, it's still in here. I fell in love with the way it looked! It looked so much better inside than it did outside! I seriously didn't think it was going to stay in here and I would need to bleach it or sand it again...so serious that there are still spider webs underneath that I didn't get all the way off :/ haha. I'm pretty sure there are no spiders in it :)

The bench itself is beautiful, but I needed to soften the lines a little and make it more cozy for my bedroom. I added layers on it with a blanket and pillows. I then added a tray full of pumpkins. This bench lifts up too for some storage! A plus since I will be losing all the storage my other bench had by replacing it with this one.

This little area I kept simple and used some pampas grass to create a more natural fall feel with no pumpkins....since I used all the pumpkins at the foot of the bed :) I have been contemplating painting my nightstands white with a heavy distressing. What do you think? Along with that will be the addition of board and batten to the other walls in this room. It may become a big white box. Some say that's bad, I just love how the woods and other colors jump off the white though.

As for the bedding, I'm all about the layers! I could have gone with one more row of pillows, but I controlled myself :) I also layered a vintage quilt at the bottom of the bed I found from an amazing antique shop this summer. I then threw a throw blanket on top of that. I've been studying beds that I love and how they are made. I think I got all the elements here :) That sounds silly, but making a bed is seriously an art form sometimes! And one that I will eventually master!

The wall decor is back. I ditched the green and orange birds...which oddly felt more like fall when I had them up. I just needed a more simple design again....more neutral. These items will slide in beautifully in 32 days when Christmas goes up.

I moved our blanket ladder into this corner. This once graced our front room. I decided to change things up in there too so this needed a new home. Pretty much the only color in this room comes from these faux sprigs. It's simple, yet serves it's purpose.

As you can see in here, the fall decor isn't all about the pumpkins or orange colors. It's more about the coziness of the room through layering and textures. I have a rug on a rug; blankets on blankets, pillows on pillows. I am clearly a maximist..not a minimalist. But that's why this house is my home.

Neutral Fall Decor Inspiration | Living Room Tour 2021

This post contains affiliate links.

My end of September fall home decor tour continues today with my living room! When I decorated in here a few weeks ago, it was still full on summer in the 90s. Today it is still warmer in the 80s, but later this week will be a cool down. Since it's been so hot..and I love it!...I went a little more subtle this year in terms of my fall decor. At least I feel like I did! There are still quite a few pumpkins, just the colors are more subdued. Last year, I embraced the rusts and oranges, this year...not so much.

The archway into my living room is actually what sold me on this house. I wanted an old house with lots of character. When we were house hunting, there weren't many or they needed a ton more help than my 22 year old self could handle :)  All the newer houses were boxes. Straight lights and nothing interesting. So, when we came across this new build, it wasn't like the others. It had a little more character with these arches. Some say they are outdated and to straighten them out, but I still embrace them! I have two others to the right of this picture entering our kitchen and dining room.

I decided it was about time to update this side of my bookshelves. I added texture with the books and greenery and added a few pumpkins in between. And this picture on my TV is just a youtube video full of hours of beautiful fall scenery and music! I stopped it on a favorite scene to get the picture look.

I was tempted to change out all my firewood while I was updating the other bookshelves, but decided to keep them for now. I think as time goes on this season, I'll actually add more to fill them up. I just love the character and natural texture they bring to this space.

As for my fall mantel decor, I was still feeling like spring and summer when doing it :) I added lots of these aged terracotta pots with some pumpkins. I placed some dripping greenery around them. It wasn't until today that I noticed how I didn't have any long pieces on this right side! Ha! Oh well :) Maybe you wouldn't have noticed if I didn't say anything. This old window frame was a find from a vintage market I went to a few weeks back. This garland by the way is from Hobby Lobby. I have the same one on the fall mantel in my front room and love it!

When I replaced my sectional with these two couches, it gave me more angles to work with and show off. Plus, another place to decorate! I love this side table from Antique Farmhouse, along with the candlesticks. I went with some greenery in here that had a small touch of yellow. They looked like how my plants outside are started to look this time of year. Still green, but ready to die ;) ha!

As you can see, neutral fall decor was my theme in here. I accented with faux greens. All my pillows and blankets are super neutral with creams and whites.

This bookcase in the back added the perfect amount of character in here. I had plans to add a lot of my blankets in here, and then I went on an old book finding spree and needed a place for them too!

I updated the top with some other good finds and a couple of pumpkins. I found the brick mold that's holding the pumpkins at that same vintage market. I found some other items around my house and placed them up here like that cool old faux vintage fan.

This area is so cleaned up now compared to how it used to be! I love my vintage elm bench here under the window. Our sweet kitty loves sitting on it staring at all the birds. This cabinet also holds lots of toys! You wouldn't think so, but that bottom drawer and those baskets are chock full of toys.

For my fall coffee table decor, I went with my go-to decor items: candles, lanterns, books and greens! I added a couple of pumpkins to complete the look. I took this macrame table runner off my dining table and had to use it somewhere...I couldn't let it go. :)  So, I put it under this tray and love the detail it brings. You can find how I aged these dollar store books in the Autumn Edition of Country Sampler Farmhouse Style Magazine :)

Another thing I moved is this amazing dough bowl. It lived in my front living room for years, and was recently replaced. I couldn't bring myself to put it in the basement for storage, so I made room for it here! I added some faux wheat sprigs, a pumpkin and some old gourds I bought from San Juan Island years ago. My favorite thing to do when I travel is find an antique store and buy at least one thing. These two gourds were one of those things I bought. I love them for easy fall decor since they are so different than the cliché pumpkin :)
