It’s officially October and despite the temps saying otherwise, we loaded our family in the car a few days ago and braved a sweltering morning at the pumpkin farm. No sugarcoating it – it was miserable haha. We kept Eliza shaded except to attempt a few quick, sweaty, non-smiling shots, and then I made a mad dash through the sun-stricken rows, tossing pumpkins in the wheelbarrow without much of a plan, as quickly as possible. Surviving that day, alongside our little family, is this photo…
and a central room of pumpkin patch proof. I don’t know that I’ve committed to full on orange inside our home for fall but this year, I’m all about it. Today, I’m sharing our fall-decorated living room and how I was able to easily transition the space with as minimal effort as possible 😉 Naptime hustles are real these days!

Navy and Orange Fall Living Room
To simplify things, I made a plan to use the same color palette I’ve had in this room for the past year. I wanted to go a little more traditional-fall and love how oranges look with the blues that were already present throughout the room. Also, total honesty, some seasons I just don’t have the energy to go through our basement stash… this is one of those years. So, I relied solely on a few year-round-appropriate textile changes, nature, and one single order of a couple stems at the beginning of the season to transition our main level from summer. With limited time and getting creative with easily accessible resources, this is what our living room looks like today.

After getting this beverage tub last year, I loved it so much, I wanted to keep it on display. So, I used it for a log holder through the winter with every intention of putting it away for spring. Well, instead, I ended up using it for throw blankets and pillows and a few months ago, decided it would stay for fall too, with a vision of overflowing pumpkins. Because I knew I wouldn’t be going crazy with fall decor, I wanted to choose one main focal point to really make an impact — this fireplace hearth is it.
This versatile plaid throw can read both gray and blue and is the perfect neutral, regardless of color scheme. I bought it a few years ago but it’s still available HERE.

My bookshelves took minimal styling to incorporate just a tad of fall…
and brought in a few clippings from our Japanese maple.

On the console table, I added one of only two new stems I purchased for the season. I love these because unlike a lot of faux stems, I only had to use ONE in this large vase to get this look. It is long so the base of the stem is folded inside; it’s also on sale right now for 40% off — you can shop it HERE. The colors are more muted so the blend well with just about any fall look you could go for.
