Fall is almost here, and that means ‘tis the season for festive home decor! If you’re looking for a way to keep your home cozy and chic without spending a lot or making it feel too cluttered, try the minimalist approach. Use minimalist fall decor ideas to keep your home warm and inviting while still looking stylish and modern.
From choosing the right colors to simple accents that will cozy up your space, you’ll learn how to embrace the fall season without going overboard. With a few simple tips, you can create a space that looks good, feels comfortable, and brings joy to your home this fall.
How to Create Minimalist Fall Decor
By the time fall comes around I am ready to embrace the end of the season and change things around my home, but not too much! Let me show you how to add simple fall decorations to any room in your home.
Utilize Fall Colors in Autumn Decor
First up, embrace the color palette of the autumn season. A fall theme is going to be surrounded by warm colors and tones, including various shades of brown, orange, cream, gold and white. Think of leaves changing in their natural elements. As the seasons change, fall leaves are some of the most beautiful colors in the mountains. Replicate that in your home by choosing neutral tones in a warm palette.
Add Some Stems for Simple Fall Decorations
A great way to incorporate a little bit of fall into your decor items is by using fall stems. Fall stems are my favorite because they are one of the easiest ways to add in fall colors without appearing like there is too much clutter. And it really is the best way to decorate because it is so simple. Just style them in a vase and there you have a touch of simple fall decor in any room.
Here are a few of my favorites stems that are placed around the room. Don't forget to place your stems into neutral vases for added elegance.
- Dried Pampas Grass - in the vase on the shelf
- Dried Bunny Tails Pampas - in the pitcher under the TV
- Orange Eucalyptus - in the glass vase in between the chairs
- Pussy Willow Branches - in the grey round vase on the desk
Also feel free to use some of your favorite fall faux leaves in browns and golds. These can make a big impact when styled correctly on a coffee table, open shelves or on a side entry table. You can also use these for a counter or table centerpiece in your kitchen.
Incorporate Shapes for Simple Fall Decorations
Krumpets Home Decor has the prettiest mango wood fall decor this year. I love adding fall shapes in a neutral color palette to my living room. It creates a subtle fall vibe to the space and I can use them through Halloween and Thanksgiving!
With minimalist decorating, extending a few key pieces into multiple holidays as a focal point is always great. The longer decor can stay up without needing to make big changes, the better!

I love these neutral colors of my new fall decor that add to the cozy feel, yet still don't distract from a minimal look.
Focus on Clean Space for your Minimalist Fall Decor
The entire feel of your home can change based upon what you put in it. So it is important to remember that with minimalism, less is always more. When decorating your space, be tactful about what you are putting on display, not necessarily how much you are displaying.
Too much decorating will always feel cluttered and overwhelming, especially when decor is busy and extra colorful. But neutral decor that is minimal, but striking, will always make your home feel cozy and clean. An easy way to do this is to find a few great options that you really love for your decorating and stick to only using those for display.
Add Textiles in Fall Colors
One of my favorite ways to incorporate simple ideas into my decorating is by adding a variety of textiles. Specifically, throw pillows or throw blankets to use on furniture. This is an easy, but simple way to display a little bit of festivity and color.
Pick a neutral colored throw blanket and simply drape over a chair, the armrest of a couch or at the end of a bed. A cozy throw blanket can make all the difference when you are ready to snuggle into a chair with a good book on a brisk fall morning.
And utilizing a toss pillow on your furniture can equally make a space feel vibrant with color or add just a touch of elegance in your seasonal decorating. If you already have pillows, just order a few neutral covers that will tie in with your fall decor. Either way, your home's curb appeal will be that much greater with a few minimal changes.
Adding Fall Decor to Our Built-ins
I built this entertainment center in our family room when we built our home. You can see the tutorial here. Open shelves are so fun to decorate with seasonal items, but I still have closed storage for all the not so pretty things.
I have been slowly collecting the other items in our family room. I try to keep the main items neutral, but with fun shapes and textures. Adding simple fall decor to my shelves is so much easier when my decorating is already neutral.
You can take these same principles and apply to almost any room in your home. And if you need more tips for creating a beautiful fall home, don't forget to hop on over to this fall entry or exterior fall decor ideas for less.
