Room decor musts for all-around autumn vibes

Now that fall is officially here, having a room that matches the ~pumpkin spice latte~ vibe is an absolute must. To decorate for the coziest season of the year, we've rounded up a list of *everything* you need to transform your space into an autumn dream.

Autumn color palette


For starters, keep the autumn color palette in mind—AKA warm tones with orange, red, yellow and brown hues. To truly dive into the fall spirit, use these key tones to determine decor basics including knitted blankets, pillows, bed sheets and more. 

Throw pillows

Grandin Road, $50

Who doesn't love a decorative throw pillow to easily add some ~spice~ with minimal effort? We especially love ones with fall quotes, pumpkins and other Halloween-esque symbols. While they may not be the most practical, they are the cutest accents for your bed—which btw, match the theme perfectly.

Plaid blankets

Decor By Amanda, $47

Nothing says fall like plaid, which is why investing in a plaid blanket is not up for questioning. Throw it over a chair or on the side of your bed...and you're good to go!

Hanging door decor

World Market, $16.99

We are totally obsessing over this hanging decoration piece (trust us on this one)! Featuring forest animals and harvest botanicals, it's an ah-mazing little element to hang on your door, wall or window.

Fall sign

Etsy, $26+

Nobody like bare walls, so ofc having a fall sign is essential. Speaking of which, this baked goods sign if srsly making us crave some pumpkin pie rn...

Autumn leaves string lights

Amazon, $22

Now that we've seen these autumn leaves string lights, we can't resist the purchase! We recommend hanging them along the sides and corners of your wall—or even better, on your bed frame for a pop of color (p.s. we adore them at night!).

Flower arrangement

Amazon, $10.15

Of course, you can't forget some flowers to light up the room. In this case, grab your fave vase and pair it with an autumn-themed flower arrangement for the ultimate aesthetic. 

Pumpkin garland

Etsy, $17+

If you're desk and shelves seem to be missing that fall flair too, consider this pumpkin garland as your solution. You can thank us later. 


Homesick, $38

Lastly, it's not a fall-inspired room without a scented candle. Imagine this: cozying up with some Netflix and chill, warm apple cider and the aroma of pumpkin spice. What more could you want?
