Cozy Fall Mantel Decor Ideas

Yes, my friends, it’s time for a new season which means a shift in decor. Today we are starting with some fall mantel decor in my living room.

I’m attempting a new approach for my seasonal decor this year. Typically, I feel the need to buy a bunch of new things and start from scratch each year. Since I’ve been doing and sharing things that way for over ten years now, my new goal is to buy less (way less) and use what I have. I may even be able to get rid of some stuff.

I especially LOVE decorating for the fall and holiday seasons, but I’m finding that as I get older, all of the “stuff” can be more of a stress inducer than a joy inducer. I know it won’t be as easy as flipping a light switch because I enjoy all of my decor things, but my goal is to only keep and buy the things I really love and attempt to simplify a bit each year moving forward.

And don’t worry, I’m not becoming a minimalist (not that there’s anything wrong with that). There will still be plenty of decor inspiration and ideas to come. I just want to see how this new approach feels.

Living Room Fall Mantel Decor

Right around this time last year, I had a completely new mantel, fireplace surround, and bookcases installed in my living room. This project was finished so late in the season that I didn’t even decorate for the fall; instead, I just went ahead and styled the space for Christmas.

That makes this fall mantel decor extra exciting as I basically get to style my mantel area for the first time!

The existing colors in this room are navy and green so I kept those colors and added in some warmer, cozier amber tones.

On the fireplace, I swapped out the artwork for this simple black framed arch mirror. From there I styled things with books, faux pumpkins, vintage brass pheasants, candles, and amber glass jars/vases. I was even able to tuck in the sweetgum ball wreath that I made last year.

The arrangement (which you might remember from my post about Inexpensive Fall Decor) is just preserved oak leaves and dried allium.

On the hearth, I added in some more faux pumpkins, black lanterns, and a stack of birch logs in a vintage magazine holder. And since I know someone will ask, yes, my fireplace is gas. I made the switch from wood burning to gas last year and have loved the change. You can read more about that here.

For the bookcases, I kept things mostly the same with a few minor changes.

First, I swapped out some of the brighter teal and green books for brown and orange books. In some cases, I just turned the books around so you couldn’t see the spines. (If you want to see what this looked like before, check out this post HERE.) I’m not referencing these particular books a lot, so in this case, I’m more concerned with esthetics over functionality.

From there I added in a few small pumpkins, a large bowl of pinecones/potpourri, and some more amber bottles.

While this isn’t a full living room tour, you’ll also notice that I swapped out some of my throw pillows on the sofa to tie in all of the colors of the room. I also added some amber bottles with a few sprigs of fresh greens to the coffee table.

Leo decided to check out the sofa and new pillows while I was photographing this space. He might be the cutest photo-bomber ever!

Side note: If you missed it, earlier this week I shared how to create fall flower arrangements. I had fun styling them in this room. You can check out that post HERE if you want to see more of those and get some flower arranging tips!

I think everything turned out so lovely. One thing I would love to change is the ottoman and rug. I LOVE both, but I think it’s time for a change. In fact, the ottoman and the rug were not purchased for this space. The ottoman was one of the only pieces I brought from my previous home. (It used to be in my “closet”) and the rug was from the office in my apartment. I’m on the lookout!

    This is just so charming and cozy. You’re styling is perfect and I was wondering where the basket on the ottoman is from. Thank you.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It’s from HomeGoods a few years ago.

      xo Michael

    Just love the elegant simplicity

    Such a beautiful and cozy space!

    Beautiful Fall decor Michael.
    For myself I 100% agree with the stress/joy conundrum. I find doing my mantle or one main area is just what I need to get me in the seasonal mood.
    Also, as much as I want the exact amber glass items you have (!) I really appreciate that your post if not full of product placement and swipe links. Watching your curated collection grow year to year feels really personal and special.
    Thank you for inspiration to begin finding my own unique items.

      Thank you so much, Cindy! This means the world to me. Really!

    Truly beautiful and cozy ~ so many lovely details catch my eye! Thank you for sharing!

  • Michelle at

    Love, love, love this space! It so cozy and inviting. It makes me want to curl up with a good book and one of your apple cider cocktails. I agree with and appreciate your new outlook for decorating with items we already have and purging the items that we don’t really want or need. There is already enough stress in our lives and decorating should be a creative outlet for us instead of causing us anxiety. Thank you for sharing!

    You never disappoint. I always look forward to opening your emails.

  • Donna P. at

    I love all of your decorating pictures, so beautiful. Can you tell me where you bought your container holding the wood on the hearth. Thank you!

  • Karyn at

    beautiful! love the pillows! Where from? Sorry if I missed it. Thanks!!
