Minimalist Fall Decor

When we started to declutter two years ago I had a lot of decorations for every season.  Now as I decorate for each occasion I try to declutter anything that I don’t use.

Anytime I don’t use a piece of decor each season, I always donate those items. 

At the end of each season, I analyze my decorations and see what I really love and what can go.

Right now I have about 5 small items that I use when decorating for Fall. 

One thing is a squirrel and one is a wood crow, they seem silly, but my kids love it.

Here is the exact decluttering process I used in an actionable Decluttering E-Book.

Natural Decor is Very Minimalist

I love to use as many natural decorations as possible.  Pumpkins, flowers, and a homemade eucalyptus wreath are among my natural decor picks this year.  The eucalyptus wreath was so easy to make, I did a tutorial that you can find here.

On my front porch, I added some seasonal flower pots and some giant pumpkins. 

The good thing about these decorations is you don’t have to store them all year long!

Hygge and Minimalist Fall Decor

Don’t forget the Hygge.  I just read The Little Book Of Hygge, which is all about making your home cozy and enjoying the seasons with close friends and family.

I was under the impression that this book would tell me how to decorate my house, but it was more about how to be happy.  It made me think about why we are here and what we are doing with our lives.

Pointing out that life is about friends, good food, and that cozy feeling you get relaxing by candlelight while reading a good book.  After reading this book I am trying to create some Hygge in my living room by adding some pillows and throw blankets.

Shop your own home when decorating as a minimalist.  It is surprising how different your home can look by just shifting the items you already own into different rooms.  I added some pillows from our bedroom to the living room and it feels very cozy!

We have a wood-burning fireplace, but we live in an area where we shouldn’t burn fires for pollution reasons so I added twinkle lights. 

Everything is better with twinkle lights! THESE ARE SERIOUSLY THE BEST TWINKLE LIGHTS EVER – CLICK TO BUY!

I had an idea to add some birch logs in the fireplace, but I decided I didn’t want to wait so instead I added some cinnamon-scented pinecones.  By adding the pinecones and lights it transformed the room into a cozy hangout.

These are the best Tinkle lights and they come with a remote!


Minimalist Autumn Outdoor Decor

The easiest place for a minimalist to decorate is the front and back yard.  You don’t have to store anything and everything is natural, which creates less waste.

By the front door, I added some orange and yellow flowers.  My mom lent me her scarecrow sign and her Fall basket. 

She was going to get rid of them.  I love that I can borrow items that I might only use once a year. 

Another great place to find decorations is the secondhand store.  I will use it as a library.  Buy some decor and then donate it back when you are done.

These flowers are from Costco and cost around $15. and when I am done with them in front of our house I can plant them in the backyard.

I love making our home cozy without all the clutter.  The longer we have been minimalist I have realized less is always more, especially when it comes to decorations.

    I love the minimalist style of your mantel! Simple, yet cozy. My decor budget is slim right now since we just had our floors refinished, so I’m trying to experiment with the idea that “less is more” aha. Wish me luck!
