Whether temperatures are still warm in your area or the seasonal chill has begun, fall has officially arrived. With the change of season comes fall décor, and there’s no shortage of options. We looked at popular Pinterest decorating ideas and narrowed down 10 of our favorites.

From traditional pieces, like orange pumpkins, to earthier accents, like pampas grass, finding affordable autumnal aesthetics can get tricky, but we’re here to help! We checked out the trends, but also made sure they’re all affordable.

If you’ve been on the hunt for harvest or Halloween decorations, here are our 10 Pinterest must-haves.

Garlands

Those who prefer boho-chic styles are in luck this year. You might have already noticed, but wooden, beaded garlands are becoming a major home accessory—even when it’s not autumnally inspired. Of course, the same trend is happening for seasonal décor.

Drape these fall-hued beads across your fireplace for a whimsical touch. You can also use them as accessories for larger décor pieces like pumpkins and graphic signs. There’s always the option to place them along your fall tablescape.

Who said garlands are only for Christmas?

Untraditional Colors

When you think of autumn, your mind likely conjures up orange pumpkins, golden leaves, and red apples. While that color scheme does work beautifully for fall décor, untraditional hues have been popping up on Pinterest.

This set of blue velvet pumpkins not only provide pops of unexpected color, but their velvet texture adds even more interest to your autumnal accessories. Use them in a display for your dinner table, add them to a wreath, or just display them on their own.

Natural Inspirations

Not every piece of fall décor has to scream, “Pumpkins!” Much like the beaded garland we mentioned earlier, the boho style is in when it comes to fall décor.

While you’ve likely seen accents like these pampas grass stalks as part of neutral, bohemian bedrooms, they also work in vases around fireplaces, as table accents, or as an amazing filler for fall bouquets.

Cozy Throw Pillows

Throw pillows are a staple of every season that’ll never go out of style. No matter where you look on Pinterest, there are cozy throw pillows everywhere. Narrowing down the trend, though, graphic pillows are particularly popular this year. There’s everything from pumpkins to clever phrases, to antique trucks.

In this set, you get a mix of everything in neutral shades that will work with any existing interior style. Plus, these are just pillow covers, so you can save some cash by giving the pillows you already have a seasonal makeover.

If you prefer, there are also solids and seasonal patterns.

Mixing Textures

Mixed textures is another trend that’s been popping up a lot on Pinterest. From glass and ceramic to rattan and cotton, mixing different types of fabrics and materials on fireplaces and tables, or in outdoor spaces is majorly in.

These fabric pumpkins will not only work in a variety of different spaces, thanks to their neutral tones, but they’ll also fit right in with fabric, ceramic, or burlap. You get 12 pumpkins in different sizes and textures for tons of cute mix-and-match options.

Neutrals

Teresa’s Collections

Yes, oranges, reds, and golds will always be on-trend for fall, but this year, those shades are being used more as accents, rather than the main event. Most likely due to the influence of boho designs, many are using more neutrals for fall.

From the aforementioned pampas grass to garlands and decorative vases, shades of cream, tan, and brown are on-trend. These ceramic vases, with their textured exterior and rope ties, embrace both the neutral and texture trends. Fill them with real or artificial orange, red, and gold blooms for a complete harvest look.

Signage

Signs, signs, and more signs pop up when you’re looking for fall décor on Pinterest. From farmhouse to more graphic styles, if you can write the word grateful on it, people are into it.

You can also go a more Halloweeny route with cute neon signs shaped like pumpkins, bats, and ghosts. The best thing about this trend is that you can customizable to suit your style and preferences.

Tiered Décor

Another common theme amongst the people of Pinterest is tiered displays. From those filled with faux pumpkins to others built with leaves and candles, multilevel stands are being placed on everything from mantles to tables.

This is another trend you can customize to suit your taste. The most important feature is having at least two tiers, like this farmhouse-style tray, so you can create the full effect.

Classy Kitsch

When you think of upscale fall décor, bats are probably not the first thing that come to mind, but maybe they should be! These peel-and-stick multisized bats are surprisingly popular on Pinterest and actually fit in beautifully with more classic décor.

Those who’d chosen a more neutral color scheme seemed particularly fond of this kitschy look to add just a touch of Halloween. Plus, once spooky season is over, you can just heat up the glue with a hair dryer and remove them, leaving the rest of your neutral décor in place for the rest of the season.

Cozy Lighting

When it comes to making things cozy for fall, seasonal lighting is a must. While there are a multitude of options out there, faux candles appear to be one of the most popular on Pinterest.

We love this set of two for fall because they give off a warm glow, but you don’t have to worry about burning down the house or setting off the smoke alarm. Plus, the birch tree design makes them perfect for fall.

Given all the options out there, planning your fall decorating scheme can feel daunting. However, just a few of these trendy pieces can have a major impact on your space, but not your wallet. So, pick out your favorites and spruce up that space for fall!
