In this post, you'll find some country cottage fall decor ideas using non-traditional autumn colors.
I'm just now getting around to showing you our fall decor around our country cottage. I've had it decorated for a while, but this has just been the busiest fall ever. So I thought I'd give you a little mini-tour today.
I have slowly been incorporating more blue into our living area so I thought I'd show you how I decorated for fall without using any orange at all!
Now don't get me wrong. I absolutely love the vibrant colors of fall and used plenty of them on our fall front porch this year.
But inside the house I restrained myself and went for a softer look.
On our mantel, I used a simple cotton garland and kept the blue shutters and Mason jar candle holders on top. At the base, I placed 2 matching pumpkin topiaries on top of the wooden planters.
I don't think I've ever dressed the mantel this simply!
I found these stacked pumpkin topiaries at Walmart in August. Luckily I grabbed them as soon as I saw them because they didn't have any more the next time I looked. Their pretty shades of green and white blend perfectly with the blue planters.
Not long after that, I ran across this pillow with a blue and cream colored pumpkins at Pier 1. It mixes well with our green sofa and the other blue and green pillows that I already had.
A simple blue painted faux pumpkin sits on a stack of book on the end table.
On the coffee table is a little pumpkin decoration that I picked up from Target. I just plopped it into a blue painted terracotta saucer and put it all under a cloche. How much easier can it get?
Across the room on the sofa table is a blue velvet pumpkin tucked down inside my antique dough bowl. There's a story about that dough bowl that I'll save for another day but it is a treasure.
I made the blue velvet pumpkin last year, and that's when I discovered that dried sunflower heads made the best substitute stems for these handmade pumpkins. I wondered how long the stems would last, and I'm happy to say that it's holding up fine.
Underneath the seaside painting, I simply plopped another blue pumpkin into the glass floral container and wrapped a little cotton around its base.
Over one of the dividers I gave the tobacco basket a blue fall treatment, and I placed a lamb's ear candle ring around the candle.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing our country cottage fall decor today. Soon I'll be decorating for Christmas. Have you started yet?
