Faux-liage

Add an autumnal touch to an open bookcase with silk fall leaves, which you can find at your local craft store. Whether they're pressed inside a picture frame or strategically placed along the shelves, autumn-colored leaves are sure to pump up the fall factor. Design by Layla Palmer

Paper Pretties

Fall decorating doesn't have to be expensive, especially if your material of choice is paper. Book pages, framed silhouettes and a colorful pennant banner make an inexpensive impact in this living room. Design by Krista Janos

Less Is More

Create a fresh, fall look with an orange-and-white palette. Here, white furniture and accessories, paired with a few orange accents creates a sophisticated balance. Design by Melissa Smith

Pedestals and Pennants

Pumpkins on pedestals and pennant banners made from fall-themed scrapbook paper or fabric will give an open hutch a healthy hint of autumn. Design by Sara Madrigal-Fehling

White Pumpkins

Keep it simple with an elegant display of white, or ghost, pumpkins. For visual interest, stagger the heights by using stacks of old books or vintage scales as pedestals. Design by Beth Hunter

Painted Pumpkins

Faux pumpkins and gourds painted in a monochromatic color scheme adds understated elegance to this mantel. Design by Susie Harris

Birds of a Feather

Pinecones, gourds, pheasant feathers and artificial owls add an organic, woodsy touch to this rustic, fall vignette. Design by Laura Putnam

Create quick-and-easy wall sconces this fall with a pair a vintage jars and some twine. Suspended from cup hooks in the ceiling and filled with cinnamon sticks and LED candles, these temporary sconces add warmth. Design by Holly Charlesworth

Natural Elements

Weathered wood, antlers, rope and time-worn finishes make for a beautifully rustic, fall mantel display. Design by Catherine Beaver-Hawman

Spooky Stuff
