5 Fall Coastal Decor Ideas For A Festive Beach House
When you think of fall, you typically think of chilly weather, sweaters, leaves, and warm colors. However, there are easy ways to give your coastal themed home a harvest touch. With some simple methods, you can subtly accent your home with autumn decorations without sacrificing your beach style. Here are 5 fall coastal decor ideas for a festive beach house.
1. Accent Your Beach House With Coastal Colored Pumpkins
Pumpkins are big part of fall decor, so why not add them to your beach themed home? Orange isn’t a common color for the coastal theme but that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your home with this symbol. Luckily, pumpkin decorations don’t always need to be the traditional orange color – change it up!
Accent your home with coastal colored pumpkins to blend in with your current decorations. Opt for pumpkin decor that is teal, white, green, blue, or any other ocean inspired colors. These types of pumpkins will easily fit into your current color scheme but will also still give your home a festive fall touch.
You can even get crafty and paint some pumpkins the exact colors that you want. For this craft, you can use real pumpkins or you can buy decorative ones and revamp them. If you’re feeling extra artsy, feel free to paint some coastal symbols on the pumpkins as well, such as anchors and starfish.
2. Mix Fall Scents With Coastal Accents
If you’re looking for a more subtle way to incorporate fall vibes into your beach themed house, leave your coastal decor the way it is and simply add some fall scents into the mix.
Scents such as cinnamon, pumpkin spice, spiced vanilla, apple, cedarwood, and campfire will all give you that harvest feeling as you walk into the room. Use decorative fall candles to bring in touches of fall colors or hide your candles inside of coastal candle holders for a more subtle look.
If you don’t want to use candles, there are other ways to add fall scents to your home. Here are some ideas:
- Cinnamon Potpourri: Add cinnamon pine cone potpourri to a decorative coastal bowl on your coffee table
- Essential Oils: Set up an essential oil diffuser with fall scents and hide it behind decor
- Room Spray/Air Freshener: Spray fall scented room spray or air freshener into the room whenever you want to have a relaxing autumn evening
3. Decorate Your Dining Table With Coastal Dishes & A Fall Centerpiece
This easy fall coastal decor idea will have your dining table looking festive all season long! Combine coastal and fall table decor to bring the themes together in a seamless and attractive way.
Start with a neutral tablecloth, such as white or beige. Then, set up your coastal themed place settings. Put a bamboo, wicker, or rope place mat down at each setting with coastal colored dishware on top. Make sure to stacked your dishes from large up to small for a decorative look. To finish off your place settings, add a folded cloth napkin with the same color or with coastal patterns.
After you’ve set up your coastal elements, it’s time to add a touch of autumn. The best way to do this is by setting up a fall centerpiece as the eye catching element on the table. Your centerpiece can be anything from a vase of fall flowers to a display of pumpkins or harvest themed lanterns. The fall centerpiece mixed with the coastal place settings will give you the perfect balance on your dining table.
4. Combine Fall Foliage With Coastal Decorations
Fall foliage decor can add some of those beautiful autumn colors into your home. Combining leaves with your coastal decorations will give you a nice blended look without the worry of clashing elements.
There are several ways to incorporate leaves into your coastal decor spread. Whether you already have a large coastal theme set up in your home, or if you want to create a fall coastal decor theme to transform your home, here are some ideas to get you started:
- Decorate your mantel with coastal symbols and wrap a fall foliage garland around the edges.
- Set up an entryway console table with beach accents and spread decorative leaves across the table.
- Place a bowl of decorative leaves in the middle of the coffee table with some coastal candles displayed next to it.
5. Add Autumn Flowers & Plants To Your Coastal Decor Spread
Another easy way to incorporate fall decor into your coastal spread is to bring in some fresh flowers and plants. These will give any room a warm autumn feeling to contrast the cool calming feeling of beach decor.
Bring in flowers such as sunflowers, dahlias, mums, orange roses, and berry vines, or brightly colored fall plant arrangements. These flowers will look nice displayed almost anywhere in your home with your coastal accents. Try to set them up on your coffee table, kitchen table, mantel, and even on your bedroom dresser.
Place the flowers and plants in coastal style vases and planters to blend in with your theme. Lean towards sea glass vases, white wood planters, burlap and bamboo containers, and any planters that feature typical coastal symbols.
