Fall-inspired patio decor tips


With fall fast approaching, you’re likely planning as many seasonal activities as possible before the cold rolls in. Apple picking, pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating are just a few of the many ways to celebrate fall. You don’t always have to leave your home to make the most of the season change, however — sitting outside in your backyard, wrapped in a sweater near the bonfire while taking in the fall foliage is one of the easiest ways to celebrate autumn in all of its glory.

But before you head out on your patio and indulge, it’s time to redecorate! Your outdoor living space can’t look like a beach getaway year-round; changing up the decor and design scheme can provide a more seamless transition to fall and turn your backyard into your own personal retreat this time of year.

Here are some of our favorite fall-inspired patio decor tips to consider:

1. Let the fall foliage do the talking
The season change is always a splendid opportunity to admire Mother Nature and everything she has to offer. Fall comes with beautiful fall foliage, exciting textures and tones and other natural elements that shouldn’t be ignored. Keeping your patio space clean year-round is essential for entertaining guests, but do your best to embrace the natural elements in your background and consider them inspiration for your patio design. The fall foliage can act as a gorgeous backdrop against your outdoor dining arrangement, so keep this in mind when picking accessories.

2. Create a conversation station on your patio
Whether your patio is the place you wine and dine friends or gather with your close family members, there’s an opportunity to create an entertainment space that becomes something special for everyone involved. An outdoor sectional sofa is a great piece of statement furniture that brings your guests together. You can place this in the center of the patio as your dining set up, or near the fire pit for something cozier.

3. Choose fall decor based on your personality
From pumpkins and haystacks to jack-o-lanterns and spooky skeletons, there are dozens of different color, design and decor combinations to consider during fall. Let your style preference guide your accessory and decoration choices when investing in everything from outdoor seating cushions, pillows and accent rugs to light fixtures and tabletop decor.

  • Play it safe with neutrals: Pumpkins, gourds, haystacks and cornstalks matched with shades of orange, brown, yellow and red.
  • Go big and bold: Find classic fall decor in non-traditional colors and patterns.
  • Halloween or nothing: Skip traditional fall options and head straight for Halloween-inspired decor.

4. Don’t do it alone — call a personal decorator from Decorating Den Interiors!
