Simple Coastal Fall Decorating

I love decorating for fall!  Today I am sharing the start of my simple coastal fall decorating with pumpkins and seashells, neutrals and blues and a fun mix of beautiful textures!

My coastal fall home tour is even more exciting because I am hosting my first blogger home tour series!  Today through Thursday, me and ten of my blogging besties, will show you our homes decorated for fall.  Be sure to visit each day for lots of amazing autumn inspiration.

Semi Simple Coastal Fall Decorating

 Last year, after hurricane Florence, I was all about clean and simple decor.  You can see last year’s fall tour here.  The year before, my style was more cozy for sure.  You can see that tour here.  This fall, I prefer a semi-simple approach to decorating.  Still basic but a little more whimsy.

My tiered tray is so fun to decorate.  I don’t use it often because it can feel cluttered and messy after a while.  But it’s great to play around with decorating it a few times a year.  I filled it with pumpkins and seashells (my go to for coastal fall decorating), a sea glass bead garland and some small white dishes.

Some faux flowers in cream and aqua really filled it in nicely and added the coastal fall colors I was looking for.


My Coastal Fall Colors

Bright orange pumpkins are pretty but they just don’t match our home so we keep things a little more neutral and coastal for fall.  Did you see my Instagram story where I shared my inspiration piece for my fall color scheme?  It was a bath mat!  Once I saw the cream, aqua, teal and mustard stripes, I knew I had found my colors!

Adding Coastal Style to Your Fall Decor

Using beachy and neutral colors is just one way to have a coastal fall look.  A basket of seashells and white pumpkins mixed together is always adorable!

Pampas grass is another way to add a bit of beachy to fall decor.  It helps transition between late summer and early fall too.  I cut the stems long for large vases like this one.

And cut some shorter for smaller vases.  Two or three vases of pampas grass is usually enough, it has quite a presence!


Now that Labor Day has passed I am ready to finish up my fall decorating.  Next is the dining room and the porches.  I will be sharing those next week.  For now, be sure to visit my friend, Libbie from A Life Unfolding.  She’s so talented and witty, you’re going to love her like I do!  Check out the rest of the amazing home tours my friends are sharing this week too!
