Update Your Fall Decor

Here at Street Scene we are known for loving lots of COLOR!  Most of our displays and spaces are largely driven by unique color schemes and combinations.  As we move closer to fall, I find myself strangely being drawn to lots of neutral color schemes and less traditional fall decor. I am tired of using store bought decorations and traditional Halloween colors.  Some of my favorite inspiration photos I have found have been full of neutral and natural colors and using lots of unexpected objects.  This is such an easy and affordable way to update your home for fall as these colors will match with ANY decor and you may already have items tucked away in closets, garages, or right outside in your backyard that you can use to accessorize your space!

 A simple and whimsical fall mantle.  I love the distressed toolbox filled with pinecones!  The neutral paper wreath would work for a variety of seasons, and simple black shutters create a great backdrop above a fireplace!  A stack of books is a great way to accessorize any surface and also work well to add height.

A great rustic and neutral vignette full of distressed woods and metals.  Gather some bright fall leaves instead of flowers and place in a non-traditional vase for a fall touch.  Dried flowers and pinecones are also perfect accessories for fall displays.

Distressed leathers are coppers are also great finishes for fall!  I love this entryway look with a blank giant chalkboard decorated with a beautiful and bountiful fall wreath!  The traditional rug full of neutral colors pulls everything together perfectly!

Anyone can duplicate this mantle look!  A few painted pumpkins and twigs paired with natural pinecones and antlers.  Finally use antique frames, books, and pedestals to add some height and interest to your display.

I love the look of cabbages with pumpkins!  Plant them in old metal buckets or concrete planters! They look great piled on a porch with lots of pumpkins and gourds!

A fresh all-white fall look.  Spray paint your pumpkins to get the bright-white look, and then add some rustic woods, burlap, and foliage.

Another great white fall look featuring lots of glass cloches and pedestals.  Layering some mirrors or frames is a great way to make an interesting backdrop.

I love this simple fall wreath made with bunched up fall leaves.  Wire baskets are perfect for fall decorating- you can fill them with pinecones, pumpkins, moss, and gourds!
 Gray is another unexpected neutral tone to add to your fall decorating.  Use it with black for a spookier look, or mix it with bright whites for a cleaner feel.
Sweet and whimsical fall table featuring succulents, seed garland, and a mixture of pumpkins, sticks, and candles!
A collection of silver trays create a great display for fall and even into Christmas! I love the "piled on" look created on this mantle with lots of different pumpkins and candles all on top of some scattered hay.

A super eclectic fall mantle featuring lots of fun vintage pieces mixed in with fall staples like owls, pinecones, and pumpkins!

A super unique mantle covered with old newspaper pages for an interesting black and white backdrop.  Vintage trays are painted glossy black (a great option for chipped or rusted trays) and flank a distressed frame.  Finally lots of pumpkins, candles, hay, and even cauldrons of candy corn fill the mantle!


 Sometimes just a small touch can give your space a fall feel.  This elegant and rustic vignette gets the look from a simple distressed wooden bowl filled with pinecones.

Another example of a simple fall touch, great for those who don't want to go all out with their seasonal decorating.  This simple mantle has a few vintage industrial pieces that mix in perfectly with fall decor.  A simple pinecone garland is something anyone can make, and it adds the perfect fall touch to any fireplace mantle.

If you have a dining room sideboard or hutch, you can leave all your existing dishes inside and just add a few pumpkins throughout to give it a fall look.  Choose pumpkin colors that match your exiting decor (spray paint them if needed). Antlers are another great fall accessory that add a rustic fall touch to any space.

 Antique silver pieces make great containers for fall foliage and sticks, and also can serve as pedestals for pumpkins or gourds!  I love to mix silver in with more rustic pieces for fall.
