5 Fabulous Ways To Use Florals In Fall Home Decor

Saffron Marigold - Updated: October 3, 2019

The chill of the morning air, the vibrant hues appearing on leaves, and the pumpkins and mums lining the walks and porches of your neighborhood–autumn has arrived! Bring the brightness of the season into your autumn decor with gorgeous florals in your fall 2019 decorating. From prints and accessories to bouquets and wreaths, fall brims with vivid colors and fragrances that florals capture naturally.

Long a favorite of interior designers, floral prints can work in any space:

  • Make a single nod to a floral motif in a modern space 
  • Use florals on a small scale for a minimalist design
  • Maximalists will love large-scale florals everywhere from curtains to accessories
  • A few well-chosen floral pieces will sing amid the neutral backdrops found in the farmhouse fall decor and transitional spaces
  • Florals are always at home in traditional and cottage-style homes–the more, the merrier

Here’s how you can include a few florals in your fall home decor:

  1. Try a seasonal window treatment
    Turn your windows into a focal point in your fall room decor by treating them to a floral print. This application is especially effective in a room already outfitted in solid colors or neutrals.

  1. Use florals on the walls and on end tables
    Faux or fresh, tangible blooms are a must-have in any room with a floral decor theme. If you’re looking for a fall wall hanging, try a wreath! Living rooms present endless opportunities to hang a wreath: mirrors, French doors, over a mantel, an empty spot on the wall. You’ll find the perfect spot or two for florals in your fall living room decor.
