simple boho fall decor
I wanted to keep my seasonal decor even more minimal than the previous years and thought about what I had laying around the house and in the garden to add some simple boho fall decor to our home.
Today’s post is part of Marty’s (A Stroll Through Life) Fall Blog Hop and if you are coming from Rachel’s of This is our Bliss, then a big warm welcome to you. And check at the end of this post to see who is next in line after me.

fall mantle with lots of plants
I have been eagerly adding to my plant collection and every summertime all the plants grow substantially outside. So for me, fall decor means bringing the plants back into the house and finding room for them all again. All the plants don’t leave a lot of room for additional fall decor.
I also want to show you that over the years I have done so many styles in our home. It’s transitioned from more traditional to colorful Jonathan Adler to boho and other looks in between. It’s important to always point that out because the house didn’t change and most of the splurge furniture pieces are still here as well.
I love pointing out that you don’t need to have major makeovers to change the look and make it involve with you and how your taste changes. It can be done on a budget.
Some of my plants like the prayer plant and rattlesnake plant weren’t doing so good and it makes me beyond happy to see that they thrived outside and look better than ever. I mean look at that prayer-plant on the little coffee table! It’s so pretty. It even bloomed.
I added the DIY beginner macrame garland that I made a couple of years ago. Hey, why not bring it back, right? I never had plants on my mantle like this before. They won’t stay permanently because of Christmas coming up and when it gets really cold, we have the fireplace on all the time and it would just be too hot and dry for most plants. So this is definitely just a seasonal fall display and the plants will eventually be distributed throughout the rest of the house. I have no clue where yet though because I’m running out of space. Usually, our bedroom feels like a jungle in the wintertime since we have a big window in it with high ceilings.
The bookshelf that I made over last year is still displaying my ever-growing basket collection.
boho fall macrame floral arrangement
We have mums, sunflowers, and grasses in the yard which I used to make the below simple floral arrangement on my old macrame piece that I made a couple of years ago. The darker pampas grass is the same grass that I used for my pampas grass Christmas tree last year. This year I’d like to make a bigger one. Let’s see!

Unfortunately, I don’t have a tutorial for the wall hanging (you can buy one just like it HERE) but I do have a tutorial for the macrame light fixture, the long narrow wall art piece, the bleached cherry wood desk makeover, and the boho drawer pulls you see in the background.
As always the kitties need to pose for photos as well. They can’t just let me decorate without being able to supervise every step of the process especially if it involves grasses from the yard.
Simple boho living room decor
The rest of the living room only got more plants again, a dry floral arrangement, and some pumpkins on the window sill. I wanted to add more pumpkins this year but couldn’t find any that I really love this early. I probably will in 2 to 3 weeks.
I’m currently battling a small infestation of scales on my favorite kangaroo paw fern, so it has to hang alone in the window far away from other plants. It was not outside over the summer with the others and I’m super frustrated that it got bugs anyways.
I’ve been wiping the leaves with alcohol and after spraying them with an alcohol and mild dish soap mixture. This is no joke on a plant with so many dense leaves.
The below fiddle leaf is my old one that I’ve had for years. It was growing two really long stems which I chopped off in springtime to encourage new growth and branching out. I can happily report that it worked and the Fiddle leaf looks better than ever. The chopped off branches also rooted and created another fiddle leaf plant.
Next, please make sure that you visit 11 Magnolia Lane for some beautiful fall decor so we can keep this blog hop going. Enjoy!
While I am certainly no minimalist and have a lot of stuff collected and displayed all over the house, I tend to decorate with only minimal seasonal decor.
That’s it for today. Talk to you soon and enjoy the fall.
Wow! Serious plant envy over here! Your home is so beautiful and I just love that macrame piece! The addition of the fall stems works perfectly!
Thanks Jennifer. I’m always amazed how much they grow over the summer. I had to repot several already.
This is the BEST boho-inspired tour I have seen Julia! I adore that you incorporated fall touches into the wall hanging. A truly lovely look!
Oh, thanks so much, Laura.
I am always amazed at your talent and how you change things up each season with such easy effort. Love all the plants and all of your amazing macrame. Such an inviting space full of inspiration. Thanks for joining the tour again this season. It’s always fabulous to tour your home.
Thanks so much Marty. You are always the sweetest and thanks so much for having me again.
Oh, I love your mantel display! All those plants and the garland … Well, everything looks so good, as well as the rest of your home. I still need to bring some of my plants inside the house. It was the first year I brought them outside for the Summer and you’re right they love it!
Yes it’s the best thing for them to be outside. Some of mine were dying and they came right back. I hate to bring them inside again because I know they won’t like it 🙁
Hallo, Julia! You have such a green thumb! My downstairs neighbor just gave me a beautiful dieffenbachia today and I’m worried I’ll kill it. I sent the link to your tour to my 18 year old daughter who absolutely loves macrame; she is going to get so many good ideas from your home! Our cat would like the hanging bed I saw in another post. She loves living in Germany although the mice aren’t glad she’s here!
Oh I’m sure your kitty loves Germany too 🙂 And good luck with your dieffenbachia
Oh I love all the boho fall touches you’ve added to your pretty home!
Thanks so much Cindy.
I just love your home and your mantel is my fave right now! So light and cozy and earthy! Also, I totally thought your cats looked stacked. HAHAHA.
Thanks Cassie, yes they look stacked. They always look like I make them pose but they do it all on their own 😉
Gosh, your plants look so happy!! And your fall touches are perfect. I really love the macrame with dried floral. Such pretty textures and colors!! xoxo
Thanks Kathy, I’m so happy that my plant babies grew so well outside. Makes me proud of my green babies 🙂
Your boho home is just gorgeous Julia, and I love that macramé wall hanging, it is awesome! I sure wish I had your green thumb too, ha! Happy Fall!
Thanks Tamara, I don’t even have a green thumb. The summer weather takes all the credit. They were ready to die in spring when I put them out and they bounced right back.
