When it comes to fall decorating, I’ve become partial over the years, to using less ‘fall decor’ and relying more on color, pattern and texture to celebrate the season. Fall is finally upon us in our home, and today I’m sharing elegant fall decorating in our living room with gorgeous, rich colors – navy blue and tan, mixed with warm whites and of course touches of gold. My colors don’t change that much from season to season, but I often like to vary the tones that I use in our spaces.

I’m thrilled to join a very talented group of bloggers this week (everyone is linked down below!), all sharing our fall homes. Thank you to Marty, of A Stroll Thru Life, for always hosting these fabulous tours.

Please come and join me in our living room, to see how I used elegant fall decorating to create a sophisticated sense of the season.

If you’ve been reading with me for a while, you’ll notice that my decor from season to season is very consistent.

I always have a plethora of solid and chinoiserie ginger jars, gold accents, and I often rotate many of the same accessories throughout our home.

This fall season is no different!

The few, but still significant seasonal updates you’ll find are new champaigne faux florals, new pillow covers, layers of natural textures like stacking baskets, and my cane hurricane lantern, gold candlesticks and a few small tan and brown touches, like agate and decorative boxes.

I have so much happening right now (don’t we all!), I needed to simplify as I often need to, and not stress about huge seasonal decor changes.

Especially with the holidays fast approaching!

I’m in love with our Navy Linen pillow covers with greek key trim, they’re so incredibly luxe in person.

Made from thick, durable heavyweight Italian linen – a high performance fabric (the fabric has a durability rating of Martindale 22,000), which means they stand up to the test of a ton of use, and they’re stain resistant…you couldn’t ask for more!

Navy blue, tan and ivory throw pillows are chic and elegant for fall.

These elegant and rich Rubia Embroidery pillow covers are equally gorgeous – with a stylized floral motif embroidered in a rich tan on ivory linen, they are so stunning and this pattern is gorgeous!

I always love to add extra details like piping as well.

Finally, the Shimmer Beige and Gold pillow covers, are also a highly durable fabric, which exceeds 51,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek Method). That means these will last a long time!

I’ve featured these beauties before, you may recognize them from our fall living room tour from two years ago.

I found these beautiful faux champaigne flowers that are the perfect color for my elegant fall decorating this year. I love how they compliment my blue and white ginger jar (see similar), and the daintiness of the flowers adds a soft touch.
