The modern farmhouse style is perfect for the fall season. See the latest farmhouse fall decor trends and find four easy ways to incorporate the modern and rustic country style in your autumn decor.

It seems that everyone is falling in love with the farmhouse home decor trend. And what’s not to love?

The modern farmhouse is warm and cozy, simple and understated, and filled with age-worn, well-loved items that focus on comfort, family, and togetherness. The farm country style is full of charm and character, beckoning to the simpler times. But don’t be fooled ― it’s surprisingly savvy and sophisticated and not at all simplistic.

It’s also the perfect style for fall decor.

Fall in the farmhouse

Farm style decor is great any time of year, but it’s especially ideal for the harvest season, which already has so many natural elements.

Here’s how you can incorporate the farmhouse style in your fall home decor.

  • Focus on warm, neutral colors combined with natural accents, such as wood, twine, straw, burlap, cotton blooms, eucalyptus, and, of course, pumpkins!
  • When choosing pumpkins, go with the beautiful, fairy-tale, heirloom variety in unexpected colors, such as white, cream, gray, and light blue.
  • Add a vintage element to your design by including something weathered, well-loved, and rustic in your vignette.
  • Look for vintage fall-inspired illustrations, paint-chipped framed wall art, chalkboards, or old windowpanes.
  • Repurpose those galvanized steel buckets, cans and mason jars, old wooden crates, and other utility pieces in your decor.

The fall farmhouse decor trends include fall greenery, shades of light blue and teal, vintage illustrations, and bursts of plaid. Here’s how you can incorporate these trends in your decor this year.

1. Fall greenery

Whether you’re decorating your dining room table or front porch, adding fall greenery accents will enhance and elevate your farmhouse design. These natural element can serve as the centerpiece or as additional decorative details in your decor adding color, texture, and life.

Use fresh, dry, or faux fall greenery in creative ways to add interest and dimension to your design. Look beyond ready-made flower arrangements and get creative with moss, dried grasses, fall leaves, pine cones, succulents, and farmhouse staples, such as cotton, boxwood, and silver dollar eucalyptus.

Ornamental cabbage, kale, and other fall harvest vegetables will add a lively touch to your pumpkin collection. Hearty mums will help add a pop of color.

Take a look at how this simple farmhouse front porch by Grace In My Space (pictured above) embodies an effortless style by incorporating fall greenery accents.

A wooden planter box with a fall design offers the perfect way to display your fall greenery. Fill it with miniature pumpkins and the fall greenery you find in your garden or neighborhood park. Or use a variety of succulents with moss tucked in between to create a unique fall centerpiece. The wood planter box can also hold mason jars filled with dried boxwood, eucalyptus, or stems of cotton. The fall design can be customized with your choice of colors and words like thankful, grateful, or blessed.

2. Shades of soft blue & teal

The modern farmhouse style embodies a neutral color palate with soft, muted shades occasionally accented with deeper hues. Think lots of white, cream, and gray and natural wood accents with bold pops of black and charcoal.

Farmhouse fall decor also includes light blues and muted teals in a variety of creative ways. From pumpkins and beautifully elaborate tablescapes, to shelf and mantel decor, throw pillows, wall art, soft blue and teal can be a nice accent to traditional fall colors like orange, brown, gold, and red.

The personalization option allows you to add your family name, first names, or any other text you choose to make this piece more meaningful and special.

3. A touch of classic vintage charm

Farmhouse decor emanates a classic, vintage feel. Things that look rustic and rural, repurposed and given new life. Think old glass mason jars, weathered barnwood, burlap fabric, and galvanized steel used in a variety of creative ― and sometimes unexpected ― ways.

This fall, anything with that characteristic, antique, rustic charm is sure to make a big impact in your farmhouse decor. Look for designs that feature vintage-inspired illustrations with an autumn theme.

4. Rustic fall plaids

Plaids are big in the modern farmhouse decor, from bold buffalo check and gingham patterns, to more intricate houndstooth and tartan plaids. Plaids are being incorporated in a variety of colors and creative ways in fall decor on everything from wall art and throw pillows to napkins, kitchen towels, table runners, and dishes. There are even plaid pumpkins!
