Refresh Your Living Room For The Fall Using Non-Traditional Colors

I know that fall is all about rusts, oranges, red and spooky decorations but for me, I like to be different and now that the kids are big, there are no more spooky ghosts or witches on the mantel. I have converted all that into stylish Fall décor that I can transition easy for my fall season. Don’t get me wrong I love driving around to everyone’s houses and seeing them all decorated with amazing fall colors and cool Halloween decor.

I started off by adding all-new pillows in different patterns in the Navy. Many of the pillows were in velvet to match the velvet pumpkins that are part of the Stylish fall décor.

I have two sofas to decorate. I needed a total of 10 pillows, 4 large pillows for each end of the couches, then 4 medium and 2 lumbar pillows. Each sofa had a total of 5 pillows all decorated with a specific look.

Placement of the pillows on the sofa.

Let’s start with the Eustace Cotton Throw Pillow. I placed a total of two on each sofa. One on each end of the sofa. Then I placed the Bianca Solid Cotton Blend Throw Pillow after the Eustace and last the Lecenta Cotton Lumbar Pillow.

To find these pillows and others go to Décor & Pillows  category

Quality of pillows

I love the workmanship for these pillows, I saw similar ones on another site for double the price. The two of the pillows have hand stitching design throughout. The velvet pillow has a contrasting color of beige which means you can turn them over for a different look.

The Throw

I added one of the lumbar pillows on the chaise behind the sofa so it all blends well together. I added a dark blue velvet throw to keep up with the velvet pillows and pumpkins. You can find this pretty throw under the Throw Pillow category. The Roderick Shaggy Fluffy Throw will be a warm welcome in the upcoming cold weather.

Table and Mantel Decor

For the table, I added some stylish chinoiserie pumpkins that I decoupaged with blue and white fabric and painted some in Chinoiserie design. Normally the orange pumpkins I used in the past would be taken off after Halloween but since there are blue and white they will stay up for most of the fall. For the mantel, I added the pumpkins on top books and planters.

  1. I’m such a fan of navy and white and loved your photo inspiration. Those pumpkins are some of my favorites this season! Love Wayfair!

    1. Since I wrote that post, COVID change things, I now have a house full of kids visiting, so I almost feel like I have to add some traditional fall decoration for old time’s sake. Thanks
