These 15 Autumn fireplace decor ideas will get you inspired for this season in no time, whilst bringing that cosy and warm feeling into your living room and beyond.
15 Autumn Fireplace Decor Ideas For A Cosy Feel
1.Add A Rustic Light Up Garland For Ambience
A mantelpiece provides the perfect place for some seasonal styling updates, and generally, a fireplace is already the focal feature in your room so it really is the perfect opportunity to draw even more attention to it, and update your styling seasonally.
An autumnal leaf garland is a an affordable, and simplistic way to style your fireplace, intertwine it with some fairy lights for added ambience during the evening.
2. Create A Faux Floral Garland
Fireplaces are a great excuse for elaborate decorating during Autumn and Christmas, and this is one of my favourite Autumn fireplace decor ideas.
This faux floral garland drapes from a mirror rather than across the mantelpiece, framing the fireplace beautifully.
3. Embrace Autumnal Colours
It’s all about rusty reds, yellows and oranges when it comes to Autumn, and simply by incorporating these colours in garlands and decor accessories is a great way for your fireplace to give a nod to the cosy season ahead.
4. Add A Cute Autumn String Garland
Why stop at just a garland draped across the mantelpiece?
Add a string letter garland like this for a rustic touch, these are simple enough to make yourself with some string, hessian material and stick on letters.
5. Create A Cosy Corner of Pumpkins
Not everything has to be symmetrical. Instead, pick a corner of your hearth and create a gorgeous display with your pumpkins.
Use a range of pumpkins in different sizes and colours, this will create layered visual interest for an inviting look on your fireplace hearth.
6. Use Your Hearth For A Pumpkin Display
If you don’t have a mantelpiece, use your hearth for some seasonal styling.
Add a pumpkin display with pumpkins in different colours, textures and height to draw the eye in, and engage your guests visually.
7. Create A Cascading Fireplace Garland
If you’re creating your own garland for your fireplace, create a cascading garland which hands further down on one side. It will almost frame the fireplace, and it adds visual interest.
There’s a number of different ways to create a garland like this. If you can’t find one bulky enough, combine a few different garlands and wrap them around one another to create your desired look.
8. Use A Mix of Natural Dried Foliage & Faux Stems
I love this draped garland on the fireplace. It combines a mix of both natural dried foliage and faux stems for a substantial and luscious look.
Use greens for a sumptuous, fresh feel, and do mix with Autumnal colourings such as oranges, yellows and browns to tie the look together.
9. Create A Natural Centrepiece With A Garland & Stack of Pumpkins
You don’t need to reinvent the wheel with autumn fireplace decor.
This simple look features a brown leaf garland, with a stack of pumpkins in the centre.
Introduce rustic textured pumpkins in a range of colours and sizes for visual interest, a stack of the same sized and coloured pumpkins won’t achieve the same look.
10. Introduce A Range of Seasonal Colours
You don’t need to opt for the same tell tale seasonal colours throughout to appreciate Autumn styling.
Use a continuation of colours from purples through to oranges and yellow with dried foliage on a garland for an abundant, luscious look.
11. Keep It Simple, Yet Refined
Autumnal decor doesn’t have to be tacky, gaudy or bright orange. Refined styling can be simple, yet give a subtle nod to the changing season.
Place a vase with some autumnal dried stems on the mantelpiece, with a few well placed pumpkins scattered on the fireplace and hearth.
It’s one of the simplest looks from this edit, but it’s refined and elegant in equal measure.
12. Create A Farmhouse, Fall Inspired Look
Nobody does fall or Autumn like Farmhouse inspired decor schemes.
Embrace that rustic side of the season with a dried twig wreath, black candlesticks, leaves and a Pumpkins sign.
It’s another subtle look, but it’s effective and looks great in farmhouse, cottage and modern rustic style interiors.
13. Use A Faux Fireplace Wisely
If you have a faux fireplace or inglenook with no fire, use it as a quirky way to create an Autumnal display.
Stuff it full with a whole host of different sized, and coloured pumpkins. It adds beautiful visual interest and a fun focal feature to the fireplace.
14. Use A Less Traditional Green & White Colour Scheme
Oranges and reds may be your more traditional Autumnal colours, but neutral, soft colours are becoming ever more popular as they work well with neutral colour schemes, and bring a different dimension to Autumnal styling.
Use greens for a fresh look in your foliage with whites, peaches and rattan textures.
15. Mix Textures & Colours
Keep it really simple on your fireplace with a foliage garland and a mix of textures and colours with your pumpkins for added visual interest.
Don’t forget to add a set of Autumnal candles for a full seasonal update in your living room…
