Our Modern Fall Decor Ideas for the Living Room

Our living room is one of my favourite spaces in our home. The huge vaulted ceilings are simple unbelievably, and the large tiled fireplace (with hidden cords!) is one of the first DIYs we tackled when we moved in, so it holds a lot of sentimental value.

This year we were fortunate enough to finally switch out the chairs and the TV and we were STUNNED with how much is changed the space.

The brown leather chairs especially warm up the space so much – perfect timing for fall – and they are also recliners! If you don’t believe me, just check out the video! They recline beautifully and they are so comfortable!

Sorry about the unfinished stairs in the background… that’s still a work in progress moment, lol.

For the fall decor in the space I wanted to keep it simple, following three main rules for myself…

  1. Don’t overdue the “fall” decors – a few pieces here and there is all it needs.
  2. Keep it neutral – the soft creams help maintain the warmth in the space
  3. Bring in extra comfort – it’s getting chilly, so pile on the blankets and throw pillows!
  4. Bring in extra greenery – more life is always better when you are livening up a space

This little corner is always my favourite. Filled with warm woods underneath and a contrasting black cushion… you can’t ask for anything cozier.

The centrepiece is simple and elegant. A couple of ceramic fruit, a warm candle, and a simple vase (from Dollar Tree!), all nestled in a walnut tray to contrast the lightly coloured coffee table we have in here.

My absolute favourite white “Hello Fall” pillow, is the centrepiece of the bench behind.

A plaid grey and white pumpkin is the only pumpkin making an appearance in here today and I’m not upset about it! Although I do love to look at a good fall display in other people’s homes!

Blue couch decorated for fall

The only styling the couch got was a couple of extra blankets (that I’m already using EVERY day!).

The living room looks perfect to me! I love the chairs facing the couch because it opens up the space so much, but when it’s movie night, it’s very easy to move them to the front of the room so that more of us can watch and recline comfortably!

I thought I’d show you a quick view of our desk beside the living room too. It’s nestled on blank wall behind new chairs, and is the perfect little work space for our kids!

The small white pumpkin is the only sign of fall over here right now, lol. IT may get a few more trinkets when my new fall dollar store DIYs are done later this week!
