Cozy and rustic, farmhouse design styles are perfectly suited to fall’s crisp weather and laid-back itinerary—think tailgating or Thanksgiving. Farmhouse decor is easily recognizable by its emphasis on heritage materials. A farmhouse-inspired piece, whether a piece of furniture or an accessory, should look well-loved and time-worn. That’s because farmhouse decor favors strong materials that can stand up to just about anything: linen, metal, wood, jute and burlap are all popular (and sturdy!). These materials also help dictate the color palette. Farmhouse style emphasizes subdued hues like natural linen and ivory, silver and charcoal tones, and warm tones of wood or burlap. For fall, we like incorporating muted yet bold earthy colors, such as a deep rust shade, sage green, and mustard. Here are a few key pieces to revamp your farmhouse decor for fall:

Set the tone of a warm, welcoming space before guests even walk in the door. This jute doormat is unfussy yet stylish and evokes a pom-pom-knit sweater. This braided coir doormat is similar and a bit more streamlined while still offering the same charming effect.

Is there anything cozier than a throw? Yes, when it’s cable-knit with a plush, faux sheepskin backing. The throw comes in several farmhouse-ready hues like ivory, gray and charcoal. Or, opt for this stonewashed cotton throw, which features a beautiful variance of tones and is machine washable. You can also opt for a super chunky knit by way of this light gray CB2 throw.

This set of galvanized trays is a perfect farmhouse accent for fall. Corral candles, books, and other accessories in a living room, or use one in the dining room to hold flatware and stemware while entertaining.

Whether in the kitchen or bathroom, this handsome glass-and-iron caddy adds instant farmhouse style in a completely functional way. Opt for seasonally scented liquid soaps and lotions—think warm and spicy fragrances like pumpkin, clove, cedar or apple cider.

Deck the halls with color and texture—and a bit of history. These framed French sack cloths are a conversation piece that complement farmhouse decor’s emphasis on timeworn materials. The muted red tone of these sack cloths is a lovely way to incorporate autumn-inspired color palettes.
