Fall Inspired Modern Rustic Decor

Late this summer I decided I was committed to buying little-to-no fall decor. Or at the very least, anything I did buy needed to be able to serve two seasons. So this year’s fall decor is very simplistic compared to years past.

I’ve come to a point in my fall decorating where less is more. The season seems to be so short here in Michigan and my style has become more simplistic.

I kept seeing a reoccurring theme of rustic wood tones, natural grey and tan hues, and richly textured fabrics in the images that were inspiring me.

So, I decided to use my existing traditional fall decor, like pumpkins and faux florals, alongside some new pillows that have a more modern rustic decor vibe. {Use code GRACE15 for 15% off my favorite pillow shop!}

Modern Rustic Entryway

My entryway has traditionally taken on a vintage farmhouse vibe. I’ve started to edge more modern in my styling but love the character that the farmhouse style adds.

So, for my fall entryway I wanted to make a simplistic statement, if that can be a thing, with this easy DIY leaf display.

I love how it feels a little rustic as though you’re in a forest of changing and windblown leaves. It was so simple and only took me 5 minutes to create!

For the rest of my entryway decor, I simply used rich natural textures and tones to mimic the colors of the season. These baskets with leather handles are my favorite new addition!

You can see above that they are beautiful whether styled empty, with florals, or overflowing with pumpkins.

Opposite my leaf wall, I’ve created a barrier to the living room with my favorite console table. I topped it with another very simple DIY wood centerpiece I built.

I love how versatile that piece is! It was such an easy building project for beginners and I’ve already styled it three ways for fall. The rest of the table just has some cozy elements stacked to give a nod towards the impending cold.

Modern Rustic Living Room

Our “formal” living room is my favorite room in the house. I give formal quotes because there is nothing formal about it. It is such a casual space and our family fully lives in it on a daily basis.

This fall, I added some warmth to the space with simple grey curtains. My wood bowl gallery wall was a favorite amongst my Instagram friends. I shared the process of how I hung my favorite vintage wood bowl collection in Instagram stories and most loved the idea.

I plan to share a blog post about that project soon as well! But, I love the warm textures the bowls give to the room, and they play so nicely off my leather pillows and amber bottles.
