For many Nocatee residents, fall is a time for pumpkin flavored everything, Nocatee's annual Fall Festival, and the chance to break out cozy scarves during cooler autumn nights! Here are some autumn-inspired home decorating ideas (from HGTV) that we've already seen displayed around many Nocatee homes!

10 Easy Decorating Ideas for Fall from HGTV

Ready to give your home a mini-makeover for fall? Here are 10 autumn-inspired home decorating ideas we love.


Add an autumnal touch to an open bookcase with silk fall leaves, which you can find at your local craft store. Whether they're pressed inside a picture frame or strategically placed along the shelves, autumn-colored leaves are sure to pump up the fall factor. Fall decorating doesn't have to be expensive, especially if your material of choice is paper. 

Less Is More

Create a fresh, fall look with an orange-and-white palette. Here, white furniture and accessories, paired with a few orange accents creates a sophisticated balance.

Pedestals and Pennants

Pumpkins on pedestals and pennant banners made from fall-themed scrapbook paper or fabric will give an open hutch a healthy hint of autumn. 

White Pumpkins

Keep it simple with an elegant display of white, or ghost, pumpkins. For visual interest, stagger the heights by using stacks of old books or vintage scales as pedestals. 

Painted Pumpkins

Faux pumpkins and gourds painted in a monochromatic color scheme adds understated elegance to this mantel. 

Birds of a Feather

Pinecones, gourds, pheasant feathers and artificial owls add an organic, woodsy touch to this rustic, fall vignette. 

Mason Jar Sconces

Create quick-and-easy wall sconces this fall with a pair a vintage jars and some twine. Suspended from cup hooks in the ceiling and filled with cinnamon sticks and LED candles, these temporary sconces add warmth. 

Natural Elements

Weathered wood, antlers, rope and time-worn finishes make for a beautifully rustic, fall mantel display. 

Spooky Stuff

Inexpensive cheese cloth, skulls, a black wreath and decorative moss create one spook-tacular display.
