Soft & Subtle Fall Decorating: Family Room

This year we’re ushering in the season with some subtle fall decorating ideas in shades of soft blush, sage green, and faded rusts.

Today’s post continues with more fall decorating, and as I did with my kitchen and mantel, I’m keeping it simple and subtle. This year I’m very into the faded versions of fall colors. Blush, faded greens and rusts, and some cream create a more subdued version of fall that really works for me right now.

These are traditional fall colors, but in more muted and slightly toned down shades. This subtle fall decorating feels as seasonal as the brighter versions, and I love how soft and cozy it feels!

Eucalyptus added to a vintage demijohn, along with some pumpkins create a focal point on the coffee table. As I mentioned in my fall tablescape post earlier this week, I much prefer natural pumpkins. But they are still in limited supply here, so for now, the faux will have to do!

If you want to decorate for fall earlier, you can start with the faux pumpkins like I did, and then sub in some real ones as they become available.

I love baby boo white pumpkins and pile them up anywhere I can! Here, I massed them in a vintage basket.

On the table, blush roses and a touch of copper along with pears and apples create a tablescape that’s simple and easy. Usually I have a runner on the table, but for fall, I liked the idea of keeping it bare.

I’m loving the color of these blush roses! They’re so soft and they work perfectly for creating subtle fall decorating. My apples are real, but the pears are faux!

I love mixing real and faux. I think it helps makes the faux more believable.

Plaid pillows in soft fall tones add some extra coziness and texture on the sofas.

And of course, I couldn’t resist adding some copper 😉 If you read my kitchen tour post, then you know how much I love this metal for fall. It adds just the right amount of warmth!
