Decorating your home with a little fall flair doesn't have to be difficult. Yes, you should absolutely show autumn the love around your house, but that doesn't have to mean decking the halls with wall-to-wall pumpkins, cornucopias, and scarecrows. Instead, keep your decorative projects simple. Try to instead create a cozy autumnal setting that puts you in the mood -- for curling up inside, drinking hot cider, and lighting a fire.

Check out these five easy fall decorating ideas. Adding a small bit of the season indoors can have a big impact and make you feel warm and good on the inside.


5 Easy Fall Decorating Ideas for Your Home

1. Bring nature inside.

The best part about fall is that it scatters its wonder all over the sidewalk. Acorns, seedlings and pods, fallen branches, autumn berries, and leaves in an array of gorgeous colors. Bring these beauties inside to celebrate the season. Collect them in a bowl or arrange an assortment on your mantle. I love this little simple fall leaf arrangement from BHG -- they use clear vases and white plates so the leaf shapes and colors really stand out.

2. Bring fall colors inside.

Rusty or chocolate browns, rich reds, burnt oranges, golden yellows, and deep plums -- a nice way to celebrate the season a little more subtly is to decorate here and there with fall colors. Just a touch in each room that beckon the beautiful warm tones of outdoors. Think pillows, throws, rugs, and painted accent pieces.

3. Use autumnal designs

There are so many designers who make lovely items for the home from framed prints to throw pillows and more. Make pretty fall corners in your home by decorating in good design with autumnal graphics. This Sprout and Vine Tea Towel ($42, set of 2) from Studiopatro can add the perfect simple and seasonal touch to your kitchen.

4. Get crafty with the kids

There are tons of fun decorative crafts like felt leaf garlands or pine cone or leaf wreaths you can make with your kids. Love this pretty Autumn Window Project from Frugal Family Fun. So fun and pretty to boot.

5. Decorate with autumn's bounty

Figs, pomegranates, apples, eggplants, squash, pears, gourds, and grapes, there are so many beautiful seasonal fruits and vegetables this season. Stack them around a pillar candle or arrange them in a wood bowl. And don't forget the fall flowers. The autumn bounty can pretty much do all the work for you.
