How to Decorate Your Bedroom for Fall

Fall Bedroom Decorating Ideas

1. Fall Color Schemes and Themes

One of the easiest ways to create a cozy fall bedroom is to incorporate warm colors and autumn-inspired themes. Consider the colors you associate with fall, such as deep reds and greens, golden yellows, and burnt oranges. Incorporate these rich tones into your bedding, curtains, and accent pieces. You don’t have to go overboard with the fall colors, though. A few well-placed accessories or accent pieces can be all it takes to give your bedroom a seasonal update. 

Add some fall-themed decor, such as pumpkins, leaves, and acorns. Mix and match different patterns and textures to create a unique look that reflects your style. Think about adding throw pillows in fall colors or a cozy area rug in warm tones. You can even paint an accent wall in a deep, rich hue if you’re bold.

If you need help figuring out where to start, look for inspiration online. Pinterest is a great place to find fall decor ideas, and you can easily create a mood board of your favorite color schemes and themes. Whether you prefer a rustic, cabin-inspired look or a more modern, minimalist vibe, there are plenty of fall decor ideas.

2. Cozy Bedding and Pillows

Adding a few throw pillows in fall colors or textures can instantly update your bedroom and make it feel more seasonally appropriate. Look for pillows with chunky knits, faux fur, and other cozy textures. Not only will they add visual interest to your bedding, but they’ll also make your bed feel more comfortable and inviting.

Start by swapping out your lightweight summer bedding for something more substantial. Flannel sheets or a soft duvet keep you warm and toasty during the colder months.

3. Layering with Throws and Blankets

Fall is all about layering, and your bedroom decor is no exception. Add layers of texture and fabrics to create a warm and cozy feel. Start with a warm, fuzzy rug, then layer on some plush throw pillows and blankets.

Add a faux fur throw or a chunky knit blanket for extra warmth. You can also incorporate different textures and fabrics, such as velvet, wool, and flannel, to add depth and interest to your space.

Look for throws in fall colors or patterns, like plaid or herringbone. Layer them over your bedding or drape them over a chair for a cozy and inviting look. Throws and blankets are the perfect accessory for snuggling up with a good book or a cup of tea on a chilly fall evening.

4. Adding Autumnal Accents

No fall bedroom makeover is complete without a few autumnal accents. Consider adding decorative accessories in fall colors or textures, like pumpkins, leaves, branches with autumn leaves, or acorns. These can be as simple as a few decorative pillows or as elaborate as a wreath or garland. 

Look for prints or paintings that feature fall colors or themes, like trees, leaves, or harvest scenes. These can be hung on the walls or propped up on a dresser or nightstand for a subtle yet effective fall-inspired touch.

5. Add Seasonal Scents with Candles and Diffusers

One of the best things about fall is the scents that come with it. From pumpkin spice to cinnamon, plenty of seasonal scents can help create a cozy and inviting atmosphere in your bedroom. You can also try more earthy scents like cedarwood, sandalwood, and patchouli. Consider adding a few candles or a diffuser to your space; they will make your bedroom smell amazing and help you feel more relaxed and comfortable.
