Our 2023 Fall Decor Home Tour!

October 10, 2023

Thrifty Decor Chick fall home tour!

I had so much fun adding fall touches to our home this year, and I'm excited to share it with you!

The cooler temps always make me want to add more color, texture and layers to our home. In the new year I prefer a simpler, cleaner look...but this time of year I love how the extra decor makes our house feel so warm and comfy. 

One of our local nurseries has a great sale on mums every September, so I always head over and stock up on some plants for the front porch:

At only $6 each, it's a great deal! 

I've found that temporarily planting them in pots keeps them looking much better than in their plastic pots.  They seem to need a good amount of water, and need plenty of soil at the root system. 

I like to combine the fall plants with pumpkins (Trader Joe's has the BEST prices on the cinderella pumpkins!) and outdoor lanterns. 

Did you know you can plant your mums for next year? I plan to finally try this out this year!

I always love to add corn stalks to our front porch as well. They're inexpensive and add some drama to the fall decor!:

Inside, I added some simple touches in our foyer -- I used these faux flowers in cream, blush and rust tones I got last year from Hobby Lobby:

The rattan pumpkins were from HomeGoods. 

I've always had set of lamps on each side of my wood Everett table, but I tried breaking out of the symmetrical look with this black stone lamp from Kirklands

It's usually super expensive, but I found this one in the store as an online return for more than 75 percent off. What a great find, I'm so pleased with it!

What you can't see in these pics are the Halloween touches I added to the foyer ceiling. We LOVE these hanging "Harry Potter" floating candles

They even have a wand that turns them on and off! So fun! 

I added some more fall florals to the kitchen, including these dark maple leaf stems that are a great lookalike for more expensive options from Afloral online:

I love the deep purpley red tones on the leaves. 

I've really enjoyed decorating my DIY thick floating shelves I installed next to the fridge a couple of years ago. I added some printable fall art in my frames and a few rattan pumpkins from year's past:

I'm so glad I finished this wall off with the tile and shelves instead of adding cabinets. It adds such a fun focal point for some decor items and serves as great storage for our wine glasses and coffee supplies:

I only added a few flower stems (real and fake) to this space otherwise, but the colors and textures I decorate with year-round fit in with the fall vibe beautifully:

See how I built that wood vent hood here.

I had fun adding some fall touches to our dining room as well. 

This brass bowl is one of my all time favorite second hand finds! I shared the simple method for bringing old brass back to life a couple years ago:

I added some layers by leaning some wallpaper art and another fall printable in a frame

Pine cones in a bowl work for both the fall and winter seasons, so that one will probably stay out for a few months:

I got that wood buffet table at a local shop years ago, but I shared a bunch of cane console options here

Our long dining room window seat is one of my favorite additions in our home! It's where you'll find our cats watching the birds every day:

I love making seasonal pillows for way less using table linens! It's so much easier and cheaper, and there are a TON more options available to use:

You can see how to make those caaaute DIY stuffed fabric pumpkins as well:

The table centerpiece is made up of some beautiful glass pumpkins from Target and filler:

Onto our cozy living/family room! I shared some of our fall living room when I showed you the simple maple leaf mantel I put together:

I love anything amber colored this time of year (like those glass votives on the fireplace), so I couldn't pass up these ribbed glass candle holders from Hobby Lobby a couple months ago:

A plain candle looks so much prettier in that soft amber glass!

I always say changing out your pillow covers and throw blankets goes a long way when decorating for the different seasons. 

It took a few tries, but I finally found a combo of dark, dusty blue covers (Hobby Lobby), along with these gorgeous velvety dark coffee colored pillow covers
blue, maroon and brown pillows

There are SO many colors available in those velvet options and the quality is excellent!

I combined those with these navy and wine colored plaid covers and the dark coffee textured pillow covers as well. All of the colors and textures together are so rich and warm...I LOVE how they came together!

They look so great with the painted fireplace surround I tackled in late summer:

Our temps are finally cooling down and we've had the windows open during the day and the fireplace on every night. We LOVE IT!

Fall is the best...it makes my heart happy. 

I hope you enjoyed this little fall tour and got some ideas for your home! I'll be adding a few Halloween touches next, but I add those to the fall decor I already have out. 

I always do a big Halloween village in our basement, and I hope to share that with you this year.
