Something magical happens the moment the first leaf falls to the ground. The air gets crisper, days get shorter, and nature shows off with brilliant colors. Your cabin can be just as artisan with a few pieces of modern Fall decor.
Trends come and go each year, but some aspects of Fall style are timeless. Whether you need help getting out of a rut or want to add some things to your collection, we’ve got you covered! This list features the pieces that made us excited to start decorating.
Modern Fall Decor for Your Kitchen and Dining Room
The kitchen is the hub of the home and where the magic happens. A cozy kitchen is a perfect excuse to whip up a delectable apple pie and share it with those who matter most.
Here are a few great ways to update your eating space this Fall.
1. Nature-Inspired Centerpieces
Modern Fall decor has taken a cue from nature, which can often be our best inspiration. Prairie-infused table centerpieces make any cabin space look rustic. Pampas grass is one of our favorites for tabletop decor because it goes with any dishware.
Purchase brown or tan grass for an authentic look.
2. Subtle Pops of Autumn Bliss
Some of us like going all out for Fall, while others enjoy little touches here and there. If you fall into the latter, you’ll love these textured potholders. They come in subtle rust colors and add festivity without overpowering a small space.
We happen to think they would make great placemats, too!
3. Wooden Tableware
These nifty wooden serving utensils would be perfect for a harvest party or just the first time you serve soup. Wooden spoons are a timeless kitchen accessory; crafting them into leaves is genius.
4. Neutral Table Runners
Table runners are a great way to elevate your dining room. Keeping your table runners neutral allows you to add pops of color in other areas, like your dishes. Popular autumn colors are shades of burnt rust, tan, and cream.
5. Festive Dishes
There’s something special about unpacking festive dishes. Many modern Fall decor enthusiasts go big in this area. Bring out the family heirlooms and make vintage work for your cabin! Whether you enjoy giant pumpkins or turkeys, there’s the perfect dish waiting for you.
Cozy Autumn Choices for Your Living Room
Living rooms are the perfect area to gather on a chill Fall day. You want your cabin’s living room to feel like home, inspiring those around you to connect. Without further ado, here are some of our favorite modern Fall decor ideas for your living space.
6. Textured Throws
A chunky knit blanket is perfect for cozying up with a book and cup of tea. The perfect blanket is soft but not too bulky. Look for exciting details like tassels and unique patterns.
This blanket would look fantastic on the back of an armchair. Leave it unfolded for a rustic, modern look.
7. Leather Accents
Leather is an unexpected modern Fall decor trend that makes any cabin look luxurious. Adding leather throw pillows to your living room is a great way to incorporate this fad.
If you want to wade into the world of leather slowly, you can choose pillows with leather accents. Place them on your couches or in front of your fireplace.
8. Mantel Garlands
It’s time to dust off the fireplace and stock the woodpile! While you’re at it, give your mantel an upgrade with a fabulous garland. One of our favorite decor ideas is bringing the outside in, which can easily happen in your mantel makeover.
A fun garland with bright leaves and neutral pumpkins gives your mantel a Fall vibe without going overboard.
9. Soothing Lighting
Cooler weather begs for calm lighting options, primarily if you use your woodstove or fireplace often. While you may not be able to overhaul your electrical system, you can add some dimmer lighting options.
Rustic table lamps give you just enough light to do a crossword puzzle without ruining the Fall aesthetic. Battery-powered lamps are even better, as you can place them anywhere.
10. Autumnal Gallery Wall
Swapping your usual artwork for your favorite Fall scenes is an easy way to feel festive. A floating gallery wall looks put together but requires little time to set up.
Don’t worry if you’re not a natural at arranging galleries. There are so many kits that include cohesive frames and instructions.
Modern Fall Decor in Your Bedroom
Your bedroom is your retreat and should reflect everything you love best. These fun options will inspire you to create your own Fall haven.
11. Rustic Bookshelf Decor
Many of us store our beloved books in our bedrooms. Books in and of themselves are decorative, but you can create a rustic look by including bookends. Stick with nature-themed bookends, like pinecones or leaves.
If you don’t want to incorporate bookends, you can gather your Fall-colored books and display them together.
12. Warm Quilts
One of the easiest ways to switch your cabin to fall is by replacing your bedding. Swap your cool Summer sheets for flannel, and top your bed with a warmly colored quilt. Add texture by choosing bedding with different colors and patterns.
Quilts also look gorgeous hung on a blanket ladder.
13. Twinkling Lights
Fairy lights have been popular for some time now. They are perfect for a cabin setting, especially the bedroom, as they make everything appear magical. Decor experts everywhere rave about the ambiance they give to a space.
Regular fairy lights strung above the bed look beautiful, but Fall enthusiasts will adore adding pinecones.
14. Vintage Floral Arrangements
Jazz up a simple nightstand with a floral arrangement. You can always purchase flowers each week, but we prefer the simplicity of fake flowers. This adorable arrangement comes with a vintage vase.
Vintage is always in style, especially in the form of artistic vases. This decor would also look great on a coffee table or bedroom fireplace mantel.
15. Hints of Buffalo Plaid
Buffalo plaid is one of the trendiest fall patterns. You can find it in scarves, blankets, sweatshirts, and even pajamas. A few strategically placed buffalo plaid pumpkins allow you to participate in the trend without going overboard. Pair them with tan pumpkins for more balance. These pumpkins would be cute on shelves, nightstands, etc.
Bonus: These pumpkins also add a fun texture to your room!
Brilliant Outdoor Inspiration
If you don’t want to change the inside of your cabin, play around with your patio. Even the smallest stoops can house modern Fall decor. Here are a few concepts to get you started!
16. Door Decor
Your front door is the first thing people see when entering your home. Create a fantastic first impression with a cute wreath. Trendy ideas include funny quotes, buffalo plaid bows, pumpkins, or leaves.
So, whatever your taste may be, there’s the perfect wreath for you!
17. Layered Outdoor Rugs
Layered outdoor rugs have peaked in popularity and are an excellent Fall accent item. Our favorite pairing is a bold print on the bottom, topped by a neutral mat with a fun saying. Why have one door mat when you can have two?
18. Authentic Fall Produce
Your cabin stoop will look welcoming with authentic pumpkins, gourds, and squash. The produce lasts longer in the Fall air, making it a total win.
This type of decorating is effortless. Also, add a cornucopia basket if you want to take it up a notch.
19. Versatile Welcome Signs
Add a wooden sign to your cabin porch to welcome guests. Our favorite signs are those with interchangeable wreaths. They’re modern and fit any season with a straightforward swap.
Lean the sign next to your front door, or place it in your entryway.
20. Add Galvanized Tin
Galvanized tin buckets make the best planters, especially when paired with mums, the ideal Fall flower. Buckets are great for smaller plants, while galvanized washtubs make any array of flowers look amazing.
Also, you can use your galvanized tin containers to display acorns, corn cobs, or pumpkins.
