Fall is the perfect season to try out artificial foliage. Flowers and plants during this time of year tend to look a little drier and more muted, making the difference between real and fake tougher to discern. This pretty wreath features autumn grasses and wheat in a mix of neutrals and dusty pinks. Hang it on your front door or display it over your mantel.
If you’ve got the Halloween spirit but aren’t feeling actual pumpkins, ghosts and all the rest, try something with fun phrasing like this mug. It’s a great way to give a subtle nod to the season without being overly cutesy. Gold accents and honeycomb tiling add to the mug’s chic aesthetic. Holding up to 17 ounces, it’s much larger than the standard. It's just right for a jumbo cup of apple cider on a gusty fall day!
Give your home a rustic, slightly spooky vibe with this distressed farmhouse lantern. It comes with an LED pillar candle (and batteries, too!) that gives the illusion of a flickering flame, including a timer that allows you to set a regular on/off schedule. Display it with other items for an easy fall vignette.
You’ll love snuggling into this soft, cuddly throw as the weather turns crisp and cool. The muted gold color basically functions as a neutral, so it’ll work in almost any decor scheme. A thick cable knit adds to the autumn vibes, and corner tassels are a fun accent. Throw it in your washing machine and dryer for super convenient cleaning. And, at 60 by 50 ins., it’s just the right size for your living room couch.
Sleek, sultry and deliciously creepy, this gold candelabra has a serious Halloween spirit without being childish or tacky. The gaping mouths of three entwined serpents make the perfect receptacles for thin taper candles. From far away, your guests will think it’s an elegant candle holder. Up close, they’ll get a fun little shiver. All in all, it’s exactly the Halloween aesthetic we’re going for.
Swapping out living room pillows is one of the easiest ways to make your decor fit the season. This luxe velvet option comes in seven hues that look just like the colors outside on changing fall leaves. A washed cotton exterior and cushiony interior make it super soft and cozy.
Come on — we obviously weren’t getting through this without at least one pumpkin. A minimalist (and faceless!) piece like this one is the way we’re planning to go. The classic silhouette is made of resin, and we love how the metallic finish feels fresh instead of garish. Display it with a few other pumpkins or fall items for an understated seasonal grouping.
Eucalyptus is one of our very favorite types of foliage for the fall. This arrangement of artificial leaves is simple but beautiful, with a collection of sizes, textures and heights. Pair these sprays with a clear glass vase, and it makes an elegant accent for almost any space.
What would fall be without a delicious candle? This three-wick candle has notes of patchouli, cashmere, oakmoss and tonka. Plus, its orange ombre jar is pretty enough to leave out all the time and makes for a functional and festive accent piece for your coffee table.
