Cozy Fall Decor Ideas:

Over the past week or so I’ve been bringing touches of fall to my home. Last weekend I replaced the dying summer plants on my porches with mums and pumpkins. This week I made a few seasonal tweaks indoors. Because I always love showing you around my home, I thought today we’d look at cozy fall decor ideas for your family room.

It’s an especially exciting day since I’m again being joined by the Seasons of Home Bloggers. If you’re looking for more fall decorating ideas, I’ve linked to all of my participating blogger friends at the end of this post. Everyone is sharing a tour of rooms bedecked for fall. Be sure to take a few minutes to check out the magic that this talented group has created.

In my home, there are two main living areas: the more formal living room (which you can see here) and my family room. This latter space has a TV, and it’s where I tend to spend most of my free time. When decorating this room. I want it to feel cozy, welcoming, and relaxed.

With that in mind, let me show you around and share fall decor ideas that you can use in your space this season.

Family Room Cozy Fall Decor Ideas:

In case you’re curious about where you can buy something in this room, I’ve included a resource section at the end of this post. It has links to products I’ve used in this space.

One of the first things I did to update my family room for fall was to swap out the pillows. This year I used a rust orange and blue. I’ve been in love with that rust color lately, and the blue coordinates with my nearby powder room. Changing pillows and throws is one of the quickest ways to refresh a room for a new season.

I also swapped out smaller elements throughout the room.

On my coffee table, I added a few new candles, a vase of dahlias, and a beautiful black pedestal bowl filled with caramels. (These Whether’s soft caramels are so good! The Caramel Apple is my personal favorite.)

Sidenote: I also wanted to mention that if you’re looking for even more fall inspiration, I’ve started a new email series where I’m sharing my secrets and tips for creating a picture-perfect fall.

Candles are a must for fall. They create a beautiful warmth and glow in a room, plus they are fairly inexpensive.

I also recently found this vintage Whitman’s chocolate tin. It’s resting on top of a stack of books on my coffee table. I use it to hide my remote controllers when not in use.

Speaking of tins, do you remember this past Christmas when I filled my wall cabinet with Christmas ribbons? Well, it only took me about nine months, but I’ve finally filled it with a new collection: vintage tins! I’ve been having so much fun collecting them, and I think the display is coming together nicely.

Another thing you might notice is the large and empty wood easel. This was a flea market find, and I’m obsessed with it. I scored it for $75. (I had been looking for months, and the cheapest easel I could find was $300!) I do admit that the easel seems a bit odd sitting out void of any art, but I also kind of like it here. It an interesting architectural element so I’ve decided this is where it’s going to stay until I find a new home for it. Even though I’ve made several failed attempts to get back into my art habit, eventually I hope to put the easel to use.

On the opposite side of the room, I added a bit of fall flair to my bar cart with a bunch of “bunny tails.” This is a dried flower in that beautiful rust color I’m loving right now. I found my flowers at HomeGoods, but I’ve linked others below.

Here, you can get a closer look at my paint-by-numbers gallery wall. I still love this addition to my family room. I wrote a post all about it here if you want more details.

Over on the mantel is possibly my favorite part of the room.

Fall Decor Idea – Chalkboard Art:

Long-time IBC followers might recognize the artwork. Back in 2012, when I owned a B&B with a gift shop, this “Hocus Pocus Broom Co.” sign was something I designed and drew on a large chalkboard wall in the shop. (You can see that here if you’d like.)

When I was cleaning out my basement, I ran across this chalkboard I picked up at HomeGoods at least two years ago. At that moment, inspiration hit, and I knew I needed to recreate my chalkboard art from eight years ago so that’s exactly what I did.

I realize it’s quirky (and maybe a bit childish), but it makes me happy. For me, it’s a fun and unique addition to the room, and a reminder of pre-COVID times.

I’m also THRILLED that I was able to turn this chalkboard drawing into a FREE printable. Woot! Woot! You can find all the details on how to download and print this Hocus Pocus Broom Co. chalk print HERE!

To decorate around the chalkboard, I added vintage books, colorful dried gourds, ceramic pumpkins, a vintage tray, more candles, and a vase with a branch of leaves I cut from my yard.

Using clippings from the yard is one of the best fall decor ideas. Mother Nature is putting on a color show that you might as well bring inside. Plus, it’s free!

Once I had this space decorated, I thought I’d celebrate with a drink so I whipped up Apple Cider Manhattans. Boy, are they delicious. You can find the recipe HERE. You can also find some of my other favorite fall cocktail recipes HERE.

Every space needs a coordinating cocktail recipe, right? Ha!

And that’s my family room for fall. I think it turned out wonderfully seasonal. It’s ready for me to snuggle in with a good book or more likely, my latest must-watch TV show. And, when the weather cools a bit more, you know I’ll be lighting a fire in that fireplace. It’s one of my favorite things.

Here’s one final look at the space.

    Thanks for all the wonderful ideas.

    A beautiful transition to Fall…. Small changes but so lovely!
    I have to say – Everywhere I go/look now I zero in on the paint by number paintings if they are there! I had to warm up to the idea when you first presented your look but now I am envious and think you have created a really great art wall with the unique paintings! Oh, and I love the easel just as is – a nice addition to your room 🙂

  • Karen at

    LOVE the chalkboard! I love the coziness!

    Love the Pennsylania pennant pillow checked their website and they no longer carry it.
    I live in Wexford, PA and would have loved to put that in my family room. I love the look of your family room and especially the paint by number paintings wall.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It was an original. You can write to her and ask if she has other PA pennants she can make into a pillow.

      xo Michael

        Thank you!

  • Gail Volk at

    Love, love love this post. Everything is so pulled together and absolutely gorgeous. And that chalkboard is not the least bit childlike. It is AMAZING. Thank you for sharing it all

  • Jackie at

    Your family room is so warm and cozy with the navy and cognac colors. Muted fall colors. Your little whimsy of the broom picture….LOVE IT! I will need to make one for my adult daughter. Her favorite movie when she was younger was Hocus Pocus. Now that is our FUN Halloween movie we watch every year.
    Love your recipes and will be whipping up a batch of bars real soon. Our Office has been a dry area for goodies the past year or so. I think I will put a “treat bar” together and take all the goodies in. It is just what we need.
    Thank you for sharing your unending talent with us!
