Farmhouse Fall Living Room Decor (Front Room Tour 2019)

This post contains affiliate links.

It's still so crazy to me that fall is already here and pumpkins are adorning my house. Even crazier, that in about 2 weeks, this room is going to have Christmas decor. I am so not ready for that! Seriously though, where has this year gone?! I still feel like its May! haha :) 

Well, I wasn't going to share this room this year for my fall decor since not a lot was added, but I love looking back at my rooms every year and how they were decorated for each season. I also figured it would offer a little more inspiration if you are need of it! Plus, I have big changes coming in here so this will probably be the last glimpse of it with how it is now. My plans? Full length board and batten over all the walls.

 I'm still trying to decide if I should keep this back planked wall or if it will look weird with the board and batten. So, it will probably be a 2 part process. I'll see what it looks like, and if I hate it, I'll rip those down and add the board and batten. 

As for the decor this year for fall, I went the pink and green route. I used this color combo in my main living room last year and just loved it. So, I decided to move it in here for this year.

 Having a neutral color base makes it so easy to add new color combos in here. To add the accents, I brought in the pink with pillows, flowers, and throw blankets. The greens show up with the faux greenery and a few small velvet pumpkins.

 I accented the mantel just a little with two small pumpkins. I usually add a lot more, but thought less is more in this case. My go -to accent pieces for mantel decor are books, corbels, and candlesticks. I like to add some sort of garland or sprigs to finish it off.

This mantel was an antique piece I found last year. I added the book pages to it to bring more interest and texture.

 This is the wall that I'm worried about with the board and batten. I'm not sure how it's going to look. I love how the white frames pop off the beige wall. I guess we will see! I'm sure I'll love it even more especially when I put up the Christmas tree! ....still not ready for that though :)

Last Minute Easy Halloween Decor Ideas and Projects


Halloween has grown on me over the years. I never really decorated for it until I had kids, but funny enough, I have yet to dress up for it since I had kids :) That probably makes me a boring mom, ha! Oh well.

Even though I now decorate for Halloween, I don't do it for very long; I don't put in a lot of effort and I definitely make it as easy as possible. Here is my list of last minute easy halloween decor and some projects that I have done over the years.

GLITTERY SPIDERWEB
First up is this glittery spiderweb. This can easily be made into a place mat or hung anywhere for other decor. (tutorial here)

 SKULL VASE
This DIY skull vase is probably one of my faves. It doesn't require much time and it's probably the prettiest Halloween decor you will see. (tutorial here)

HALLOWEEN GALLERY WALL
I made this a few years ago to amuse my kids. This was used doing lots of dollar store finds and a few craft store items. (tutorial here)

 OMBRE SKULL TOWER/TREE
Last year for Halloween, I was doing a pastel-oween. This skull tree was a big hit! (tutorial here)

 FLYING BATS
My favorite thing is adding bats throughout my house. So many of us have the curly willow stems, and they work amazing to hang bats from! You can find these bats from almost any store that carries Halloween decor.

MOUSE SILHOUETTES
My favorite way to decorate my porch stairs and my entryway are with these little cut out mice silhouettes. You can find these already cut out at most stores, or if you have a Cricut or Silhouette, they are super easy to cut out from there!

BLACK LACED LAMP SHADE
This is probably the easiest idea in this post and literally takes seconds. If you have a lace shirt (or lingerie), simple stretch it over a white lamp shade. Boom and done!

 SKULL IN A LANTERN
My favorite way to use skulls is to put them in lanterns. It's like your own little gross collection. Any lantern works as long as it fits the skull :)

 FLYING BATS
This is my go-to decor every year. I use cutout bat silhouettes and make them fly across my mantel. Another cute idea for this is having them fly across the door or window.

DEAD AND BREAKFAST SIGN
This is technically one of the hardest projects in here to do, the most time consuming, but it's easy to take ideas from this. Simply buy a plaque at the craft store, paint it, and then stencil "Dead and Breakfast" on it. You can hang it from a post, hang it from your front door or hang it on the wall. (tutorial here)

TATTERED THROW BLANKET
This one is another easy Halloween decor idea. They sell these little tattered pieces of material at Target and Walmart. I drape mine along my tables, and sometimes my mantel. But I love using them on my chairs.

Adorn your door with a gross wreath! (tutorial here)

Quickly spruce up painted or non-painted pumpkins with washi tape!

 CHALKBOARD "BOO" DOILIES 
For some reason, black lace or doilies just give off the best Halloween vibe to me. I made this "boo" banner using chalkboard paint and doilies. (tutorial here)

 BLACK AND LACE MASON JAR VOTIVES
Once again, black and lace! I love the look of these when they are burning at night. (tutorial here)

 PORCH HALLOWEEN DECOR
I love using real flame for Halloween. I keep mine kept safe in a lantern...obviously take every precaution to make sure where you are lighting it is safe :) I also place the mouse silhouettes on the door bell (with a spider on the button!), and along the door and steps.

Fall Living Room Tour 2019

This post contains affiliate links.

Ready or not, fall is here! I'm not ready for it, but my house sure is :) Today I'm sharing my living room all decorated for fall. This tour is apart of a blog hop hosted by Heidi from Honey Bear Lane. If you are following the hop and came from The Ginger Home, welcome! And obviously "welcome" to everyone else too :) To continue on the hop or to see some more beautiful fall inspiration, be sure to check out all the links at the bottom of this post!

 I didn't change too much in here from my late summer tour since I was pretty happy with everything. But, of course, I added some fall touches in the form of pumpkins and faux wheat. When I bought this ottoman, my mom said, "That's perfect for fall! Looks like a pumpkin!" haha. I seriously have a problem looking at it differently ever since. So, I guess it fits in this tour perfectly well :)

 My main changes came from switching up things on all the tabletops. I added this tin full of pumpkins to my apothecary cabinet. You would be amazed at how often this stuff does not fall over. I have two kids and a dog, and the culprit at knocking stuff over on this is my husband. Figures :)

 I changed up my mantel by switching out my white cathedral window for this wood one from Kirklands. I added some faux wheat sprigs along my birch branch and topped off the mantel with some white pumpkins.

The wood on the right has been a mainstay here for awhile and I have no desire to change it up. I feel like having both of the bookshelves completely full would cause too much chaos. So, even though I play around with the left side, I don't usually touch the wood :) Maybe one of these days I'll switch it back to all books.

 I've been loving the leathers and blues in here lately, so I kept with the theme. This is waaaaay different than my normal decor of neutrals, but I love it. I still love this new rug too! It brighten the space up a ton and just offers a little different direction in my decor.

 Here's a good view of my pumpkin....err...ottoman ;) I had this in my Amazon cart for months! I wish I had bought it sooner, I love the contrast it adds in here.

 This little corner is actually my kids play corner. You can't tell, but there's a hot mess behind this couch! I do like to try to keep the top of this cabinet pretty though. I tied in the white pumpkins and wheat over here with the terracotta pots from my dining room.

I kept the styling simple on my big ottoman and tray. I made these curly stem pumpkins years ago, and they come out every fall looking as good as ever! They are my favorite decor piece for fall by a long shot!

Here's a wider view of this space. It's still weird to look at it with color. I know....there's not much color, but trust me, this is A LOT compared to what I'm use to!

The best thing about fall are the scents, like fresh baked pumpkin cookies! If only you guys good smell this space right now, it's like walking into a loaf of spicy pumpkin bread. I'm using my fave no wax, no heat method to fragrance my living room (you can see more here), and the scent is Rustic SpiceAlso, if you haven't checked out my giveaway yet, check it out here!
