Fall Decor 2021 That Isn’t Basic

Okay, don’t get me wrong. I love a pumpkin spice latte, but there is a difference between enjoying the taste of pumpkin spice and wanting to bathe my home in it. I have a particular taste when it comes to decorating my home, and I hold the holidays to no less than those high standards. When I looked for fall decor 2021 inspiration, I looked for modern, cozy, and rich elements that transition my home into the new season without changing the overall aesthetic. 

These items are my fall decor 2021 must-haves if you’re looking for a cozy, stylish, modern home for fall that isn’t basic. 

If you love basic fall decor with pumpkins on everything, DO IT. I will say cheers to you with my pumpkin spice latte. I’m just here to give ideas beyond pumpkins on pillows and cute fall sayings. I look for more organic and natural decorating that still gives me all of the fall feels.

This bowl is a beautiful, natural wood element to add to your home for rustic fall vibes. When I think of fall, I think of the natural colors of the outdoors. When you add wood and raw pieces, it brings some of that comfort of fall you feel happening around you from the outside.

Throw blankets and pillows are a great way to add cozy textures to your home. You can toss them on the couch, over chairs, and they don't have to look perfect to feel cozy. You can also elevate your bedroom by adding a throw blanket or chunky knit across the end of your bed as the seasons change and start getting cooler.

I love the look of crisp black matte dishes, especially CB2's collection. I have them in white and have slowly started transitioning to black as well. These can be used on your table to transition to the new season and can be layer started with plates, working your way up to bowls for a styled look. If you have small children as I do, I typically set out a full tablescape when hosting friends and keep it simple the rest of the week for tiny hands.
