15 Living Room Fall Decor Ideas to Prepare for Cozy Season

If you love fall, you already have decorating on the brain. While it’s nice to incorporate hints of the season throughout your entire home, one of the most important tasks is finding the best living room fall decor ideas. The living room is likely the space where you host game nights or watch movies with friends and family, so it’s important that it’s chock-full of autumn goodness. And with so many good pieces out there, it’s not hard to make that happen.

These fall living room decorating ideas will get you excited for the crisp months ahead. There are plenty of tips and tricks to choose from, including quick and easy swaps like throw blankets and pillows to afternoon upgrades like removable wallpaper. And, of course, there are ways to make sure Jonathan’s favorite pattern gets its day in the sun, too. So light that pumpkin spice candle and get ready to feel inspired, because there are a ton of ideas to fall in love with on this list. (Had to!)

1. YourHeartsContent Velvet Pumpkins Create Your Own Set of 3


These are gourd-eous! Pumpkins are one of the most iconic fall decorating ideas, but that doesn’t mean you have to be obvious about it. Consider paying homage to the classic symbol with something like these chic velvet pumpkins that can be grouped on a mantel, coffee table, and more.

2. Battilo Home Store Buffalo Plaid Throw Blanket


Throw blankets are great because they’re simple to change out each season. For fall, a neutral buffalo check pattern is a timeless choice. Another check (get it!?) for this blanket is that it’s made from a lightweight fabric that feels like cashmere, meaning it could be draped over the sofa in August but still feel cozy in November.

Would this list be complete without a candle? Fall is the perfect excuse to bring new scents into the home. If you do need a break from pumpkin spice, this amber option brings instant warmth and coziness with notes of bergamot, cardamom, nutmeg, jasmine, and cedarwood.

4. Scott Living Charcoal Vinyl Plaid Peel and Stick Wallpaper


The best part about removable wallpaper is that you can take it down at any time! Consider outfitting a living room nook or small accent wall with the pattern of the season. You’ll love how much fall-inspired charm it brings.

8. MIULEE Store Buffalo Plaid Throw Pillow Covers, Set of 2


Bring on the buffalo check! Throw pillows and blankets are one of the best ways to bring the quintessential fall pattern into the home. For lighter sofas, don’t be afraid to go bold with color.
