Who doesn’t love fall? The temperatures aren’t too warm or too cool, and nature might even be its prettiest during September and October. Fall colors can make us feel warm and fuzzy inside –– so much that we want to drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte or eat a slice of warm apple pie. From deep corals to rusty reds and mocha browns, the hues that we associate with autumn can inspire the palette for any room. Here are five bedrooms that feel like fall.
Warm grays, beiges, golds, and a hint of orange in a master bedroom seating area give us a glimpse of fall. The cozy spot looks perfect to curl up with a good book or watch the leaves fall outside those big windows.
For some reason, the color eggplant alludes to the fall season. The rich color works well on the tufted headboard, and orange with purple is an unexpected combination. The accent pillows balance the two colors.
Scottsdale might not get the same fall as the Northeastern US, but it does get seasons. Regardless of the amount of leaf-peeping available in this Arizona town, this bedroom sure feels like autumn.
Vivid masculine colors come together nicely in this modern Australia bedroom. The simple design allows the architecture to shine. The paper pendant fixtures add some fun to the space.
This Carmel Valley retreat boasts a Mediterranean flavor with its exposed wood beams, Venetian plaster walls, and the balcony and its metal railing. The subtle red and yellow scheme makes the bedroom feel homey and inviting.
Don’t you love fall?

Every Sunday, my toddler boys and I take a walk to our local Dunkin Donuts to bring home after supper treats. This weekend, my older son took a special interest to the leaves that had fallen to the ground. The leaves served as a reminder that the crisp days of fall had begun. Along the way, he collected all different types of leaves, claiming he wanted to make a leaf collection book. He found beauty and interest in even the leaves that I would have never stopped twice to look at. Leave it to the naïve and untainted mind of toddlers to help me appreciate art in nature. So now I have a collection of leaves drying in the garage and a new inspiration for bedroom décor ideas.
Instead of a leaf collection, how much more special would it be if I could frame the leaves that we collected into a hanging photo collage? The foliage colors are a surefire way to warm up the bedroom walls. I like the idea of incorporating only a singular leaf in each frame to showcase the unique aspects of each leaf. This one of a kind décor is a wonderful way to preserve and relive my cherished strolls.
If I could enlarge the leaves that we discovered this is what I would like it to look like – a large, framed abstract print hanging in the bedroom. The orange and yellow hues and a fresh bouquet of living flowers are a vibrant take on the fall season. A plush and vivid throw further enhances the feeling of warmth in the bedroom. The seagrass wallpaper indicates that summer will be back again soon.
It’s easy to get carried away and collect too many leaves. In that case, a wreath is just the answer. However, this would be one of the times it’s easier to buy than attempt a DIY. If made by a local artisan, ask if the wreath can be custom designed to include the items from nature that have been picked out. A wreath of leaves can capture the beauty of fall and make a great contribution to any bedroom design. They can be placed over the bed or even on the bedroom door. Acorns, branches, berries, pinecones and other items are added elements that can give the wreath more texture and color. In this bedroom example, the use of fluffy bed linens such as velvet and fleece lend a cozy air to the bedroom while a nature inspired nightstand completes the look.
