Best Vintage and DIY Fall Color Décor Ideas

 Vintage and DIY Décor Tips and Ideas

Décor colors for fall may be bold or subdued. This post helps you choose those shades of the autumn color palette to feature in your vintage or DIY projects so they are pleasing to you.


Include warm shades of red, russets, burnt orange, golden yellow, deep green, and rustic brown to help you feel a connection with nature.

Autumn hued colors bring the natural world indoors. Colors transmit healing energy, and reflect the colors of autumn leaves, fall sunsets, apples, pumpkins, squash, acorns, and the promise of fun that's in store this season.

Subtle or neutral colors like loden frost (pale green), light gray, cream, beige, and off white may be more your style, as these colors create a sense of spaciousness and help you feel relaxed.

Vintage and DIY Color Décor Tips and Ideas

Create comfort by snuggling into a soft peachy beige blanket or light teal or turquoise throw pillows. These stress reducing colored objects can instantly make you feel cozier as you sit on your couch or in an armchair.

Best Vintage and DIY Fall Color Décor Ideas

Think about what you want your décor to express. Then, experiment by adding, removing, or moving around area rugs, curtains, drapes, picture frames, candles, or furniture.


Shop your home first. Use what you have to make your living space convey the look you love. If you want to add something, first think of ways to repair what you have, thrift shop for a new item, or swap an item with a relative or friend.

Don't be afraid to mix patterns, layer textures, and display favorite fall accessories. This is a personal way to imagine the season in the most enchanting way.

In fact, it's easy, practical, and grounding to get inspiration from earthy tones and keep them as part of your year-round decorating theme.


Whatever your color preferences, use the colors that resonate with you to decorate your abode. More tips and ideas follow.


Make eco-friendly decorating decisions, by updating vintage accent pieces and furnishings you already own. Upcycle decorations by sanding, mending, and/or painting.
