A suburban meets farmhouse meets updated traditional fall family room tour.  Simple, no-fuss fall decorating ideas for a light, bright, yet cozy space.

Earlier this week we took a close look at how I decorated my fireplace and mantel for fall this year.  And I also showed you how to easily decorate your coffee table for fall in just a few minutes.  Today, let’s take a look around the rest of the family room!  There’s a video tour of the space too, so be sure to scroll on down for that.

Fall is the time when I’m ready to cozy things up in anticipation of colder days ahead.  While I love the vaulted ceiling and having the generous amount of space our family room provides, it is often a bit challenging to make it feel cozy without filling it full with a lot of stuff.  So, this is a bit of learning experience for me – learning to simplify my decor, but still giving me the cozy fall vibes that I’m craving without going overboard.

My family room can be very difficult to photograph, thanks to the two sets of French doors and the pair of triangular shaped windows that are high up on the walls, flanking our fireplace.  While I love the amount of light the windows allow into the room, they are a thorn in my side when it comes to taking photographs!

An oil painting, from my late aunt, that adorns the fireplace mantel was the inspiration for the fall decor throughout my home this year.  I love to use traditional fall colors this time of year, but I  love the more muted colors of the dried hydrangeas in the painting too!

Our family room is visible from the foyer, so it’s important that the decor seamlessly flows from one room to the next.

There is a large opening between our family room and kitchen/breakfast room too, where I’m giving you a sneak peek of the shelves that I’ve decorated with copper for this fall.  Hence, the copper pot filled with dried hydrangeas on the floor beside the fireplace and the copper container of mums on the coffee table to help tie the two spaces together.

Just like with the fireplace and the coffee table, I kept all of the decor very simple in this room.  Nothing too fussy or complicated.  Of course it helps to have a cute, furry assistant!

Just a very simple vignette is on the end table, but I do love the cozy look of the layered throws on the couch.

  1. Such a clever idea putting the “barn wood” behind the painting! I love the simplicity and beauty of your Fall decor.

    1. Thank you! I’ve used that barn wood piece in so many different places since I made it!

  2. Lovely Fall room. Boy that sofa wall has a lot to say, doesn’t it? ?

    1. Thank you, Deb. And yes, that wall is very chatty. lol

    Thank you for using color. It makes your room look so warm and inviting.

    1. So glad you like the colors. I just don’t seem to be able to make myself use all neutrals!

  4. Love your fall decorations. Just the right amount to make your home feel like a cozy fall day!

    1. I couldn’t agree more!

  5. Beautiful home. Love the warm comfy pieces. Do you also have a separate Living
    Room? Where do you have a communal TV?
    Our main LR is for greeting and chatting or quiet time for reading or talking with my husband after a busy day. You do inspire me to try different decorating ideas. Thank you?

    1. Hi Su. No – we only have a family room. Our house does have a living room, but we turned it into our home office. Glad you’ve been able to find some inspiration!

  6. You are teasing us with the copper in the next room. I can’t wait to see what you have done with that room as well. I also like the plaid blanket on the chair.

    1. Hi Barb. Sorry for tease. I’ve since published a post about the breakfast room with all of the copper, so hope you saw it!

  7. Look to the facebook pgs of the Topsail Gazette and Surf City for information about Topsail.

    1. Thanks for the tip, Sandra. The Topsail Gazette has been a great place for getting updates.
