It is hard to believe that September is already here and decor is changing from Summer to Fall over the next few weeks.

When it comes to autumn decorating – I tend to be a natural decor kind of girl. I love things like wheat stalks, chunky pumpkins on the coffee table, plus lots of dried florals and greens to add a touch of nature.

But as much as I love natural autumn decor- I do tend to like to add a touch of glam as well. And today, I am sharing two different looks for autumn in the living room with some of the most amazing little pumpkin finds at HomeGoods.

Warm and Welcoming Natural

This look was inspired by these amazing little chunky terracotta pumpkins. I found one, then another, and then another and my mind started swirling with possibilities of where to use them. You never know what you will find and where inspiration will strike at HomeGoods!

I decided to place them inside a weathered serving basket (also from HomeGoods) on a bed of dried eucalyptus to make it feel a bit like a pumpkin patch.

I absolutely love their chalky terracotta and details. Plus if you turn them around, you can use them right through Halloween.

Farmhouse Glam Autumn

My other favorite look… all things farmhouse glam.  For me- autumn isn’t about bright oranges and rust reds- it speaks in a bit of a softer language.

And so, when I saw these mercury glass pumpkins- they were in my cart in about a second. I fell head over heels with the blush pumpkins with the little molded details and charming pumpkin stems – so perfect on the coffee table for adding just a bit of ‘autumn’ to your everyday look.

On the sofa, a few new throw pillows with pretty little details and a chunky knit blanket add just the right amount of warmth to both living room styles. With both of these looks- ambiance is key.

There are an abundance of candles and lanterns at HomeGoods right now so I loaded up on small candles in pretty little glass containers as well as gold and copper tapers for table settings.

Lighting a few candles (or turning on the faux ones) will bring an extra amount of oomph to your fall decor- and add the perfect finishing touch.
