If you haven’t already decorated for Fall, it’s definitely time! This past Spring, I did a fireplace makeover, and painted my ceramic tile fireplace surround. You can see the transformation here. Now that the fireplace itself looks pretty, it’s time to decorate the mantle for Fall!

I’ve been on a hunt for modern Fall decor (I’m putting midcentury and bohemian under the “modern” umbrella). I’m in the process of transitioning my style from cottage/farmhouse to modern, and it was surprisingly difficult to find modern Fall decor inspo. I get it- pumpkins and gourds definitely have a country farm vibe. So I’ve come down somewhere in the middle on this one.

This new round mirror from Umbra Hub just arrived, and I love it!

I’m embracing some touches of orange for Fall. It’s not a color I naturally gravitate toward, but to me, it’s hard to really capture the feeling of Fall without using Fall colors. And I’m actually kind of loving the results. The mustard-patterned throw pillow on the floor is from Amazon, and I love this brand! It’s actually a throw pillow cover, which is awesome because I can change it out whenever I want and it doesn’t take up a bunch of closet space!

I found these Fall pom-pom stems at Hobby Lobby- and I absolutely couldn’t resist! They remind me of something from a Dr. Seuss book. I can definitely see more pom-poms in my near future. Hello pom-pom garlands!

  1. Hi there! I know this post is old so my question might be hard to answer, but where did you get those wooden candle holders? I love the simple design. I’ve been searching for something similar but without success. Thank you!

    1. Hi Elizabeth!
      I’m pretty sure I got them on super-clearance at Fred Meyer a couple of years ago. Sorry I know that’s not very helpful!
