Fall entry table vignette

Come on in and join me for this year’s Fall Home Tour, filled with dozens of simple and cozy decor ideas!

It may still be far too hot outside for my liking, but it is September now, and that means fall is officially here as far as I’m concerned.

This week, you’re invited to tour a total of 25 beautiful homes filled with fall decorating inspiration!

Marty, from A Stroll Thru Life, is our gracious host. Her fall home is beautifully decorated and so welcoming.

And if you found your way here from Calypso in the Country, welcome! Shelley’s home is filled with great ideas for creating a cozy living space at this time of year.

My Fall Home Tour: Simple & Cozy Decor Ideas

For this year’s fall tour, I didn’t buy a single new thing.  Instead, I created simple updates using fall decor I already owned for a new look.

The entryway table is one of my favorite places for seasonal displays.

The height of this fall vignette creates a big impact, yet was so simple to make.

I tucked this large fall leaf stem from Hobby Lobby into a galvanized tin bucket. I stuffed a brown paper grocery bag inside to hold it in place and then filled out the arrangement with some pumpkin picks.

That’s it! So easy, but so pretty. You could also tuck some battery-operated fairy lights under the pumpkins to add a pretty glow if you wanted to.

Living Room

The living room mantel is the perfect place to add fall touches using some of my favorite things.  

A stack of vintage books topped with mini pumpkins is an easy way to add some vintage fall vibes.  I tucked some fall faux stems and more faux pumpkins along the mantel to create a warm, neutral color palette.

My favorite flameless taper candles are displayed in antique brass candlesticks to add more warm tones for the fall months.

These candles are perfect for this placement because they are so close to the TV.

Obviously, it wouldn’t be a good idea to place real flames so close to your television, but the flameless versions are safe, pretty, and operate with a remote and on a timer, so they will turn on and off each evening all on their own.  

They are a great way to create a cozy ambiance for the fall season.

In front of the fireplace, more warm tones are added with these tall wooden candlesticks that were an antique store find.  

They display flameless pillar candles for even more cozy fall lighting.  

The open shelves next to the fireplaces display vintage finds in warm colors with a few white pumpkins tucked alongside.

Finally, I added THIS pretty autumn art to my Frame TV as the perfect finishing touch.


I like to keep things simple in my kitchen because I don’t like my counters too cluttered.  

A wooden tray and some dried hydrangeas create a pretty fall vignette that can be used on my kitchen island or my dining room table.

I normally prefer a more muted color palette in my home decor, but I couldn’t resist this gorgeous bouquet of vibrant fall flowers at the farmers market this past weekend.  

The balloon plants are so unusual.  Even though I’m a neutral-color-lover at heart, sometimes I like to add pops of different colors for a change of pace.  

These flowers filled with lots of fall colors are so much fun.

The antique corner cabinet in the dining area displays some of my favorite white ironstone dishes, mingled with fall leaves and more small white pumpkins.

Screened Porch

The next stop on the tour is one of my favorite places to enjoy the fall season.  

We had family over yesterday to enjoy the first Sunday football game of the season.  It started raining partway through the game, but inside the screened porch, we were still nice and cozy.

In keeping with my goal to go simple in my fall decorating this year, I started by adding some fall-inspired pillows, and a couple of cozy blankets.  They are both pretty and practical.

Above the fireplace, I added my favorite piece of art from my last house–a Thomas Kinkaid fall painting.  It didn’t really work with the decor in our new house, so it’s been tucked away in storage for several years.

After removing my summer Blue Heron art from the screened porch fireplace mantel,  I was debating what to replace it with when I recalled this old painting.  

It’s perfect for adding some simple elegance to this indoor/outdoor living area.

Front Porch

It’s still a little too early to purchase real pumpkins here in Iowa and still too hot for mums, so I’m holding off a bit on fully decorating my front porch.  

I did, however, hang my favorite DIY Burlap and Ribbon Wreath on the front door.  In another week or two, I’ll be ready to get the porch fully decorated.

In the meantime, you can take a peek at the porch from last year if you’re looking for some fall inspiration.

Be sure to stop by every day this week to tour several more homes filled with fall style.  The creative women in this fall blog hop do not disappoint!  All of the Fall Home Tours for 2023 are linked up below.

  5. Hi Niky, your wreath is cute I may have to make one myself. I love the hutch full of white china. It’s such fun that were leading and closing today’s tours. I am hoping we receive a large amount of traffic today. I’ll also be promoting the tour on IG. 🙂
