Adding fall touches to your everyday decor items is a simple idea for decorating your fireplace and mantel. This look would be easy to recreate in your own home!
Decorating a fireplace mantel and hearth for fall doesn’t have to be expensive or hard at all!
Before I go any further, let me say that I’m delighted to be participating in the 2021 Harvest Home Tour hosted by Kristi from French Creek Cottage today. There is an amazing group of 30 talented bloggers sharing fall outdoor spaces, entryways and foyers, fireplaces, tablescapes, living rooms, recipes and crafts all in one day! Links to everyone’s posts are down below.
If you’re decorating on a budget (like I always am) or are striving for a simplified yet cozy look, the best advice that I can give you is to shop your house and use what you already own. If you’ll do that, you’ll create a look with so much more charm than if you were to go out to a store and purchase everything new!
Then all it takes is just adding a few fall touches such as leafy stems, pine cones and a few pumpkins (but not too many!)
In my case, the only new purchase that I made for my fall fireplace this year is the foliage gracing the top of the lidded basket on the hearth. Even though I’ve pared my seasonal decor down quite a bit from days gone by, it looked just a little too lonely without a little something to top it off.
- The coziness comes not from the amount of decor, but from the texture of the decor.
- Using warm, not bright and not all neutral colors definitely adds to the cozy factor.
- Using large accessories makes a more simplified statement and helps to fill the space so that I don’t wind up with a too-sparse look.
