Hello friend and welcome. Are you starting to feel some Fall vibes yet?

It's that time of the month when my friends and I gather for another Pinterest Challenge, hosted by Cindy of County Road 407. Cindy's son was just in a serious motorcycle accident so please keep them in your prayers! This month is a Fall bedroom challenge! 

If you don't decorate your bedroom for Fall, why not start by adding just a few things that inspire you from this month's challenge. All the links are below and I know you'll find an idea or two to copy!


Let's take a look at our inspiration image for this month and I'll tell you what I'm replicating in my own bedroom. That's the beauty of this challenge...no two are alike! We each are inspired by different items and put our own twist to it.

The inspiration comes from Courtney of Golden Boys and Me and I love all her Fall pretties! Keep reading and I'll show you what elements I borrowed from her bedroom.

Fall bedroom refresh

While I love Courtney's chandelier and the shelf above her bed (so perfect for displaying favorite decor items), neither of those were elements I could copy. We cannot sleep without our ceiling fan (Texas humidity - enough said!), and our headboard is too tall for a shelf. I was still inspired by the following elements:
  • soft colors/patterns mixed with bolder colored pillows
  • bench at end of bed
  • pumpkins and Fall leaves
  • books used to elevate decor
  • something Fall-related above the headboard

Here's how I incorporated these items into my Fall bedroom refresh.

Soft colors mixed with bold

I have been using the same white ruffled coverlet for a few years now. I have a matching one in gray, but there's just something about the white that I love...it works for every season and it's so affordable! To add some pattern and color to the bed for Fall, I added this lightweight cotton coverlet by Laura Ashley. I found it on Amazon and it was so inexpensive I just had to have it 😍 

Blue and white is my favorite color combo, and I love using blue for Fall. You can see my blue and white Fall sitting room decor here. I styled my antique pine hutch with blue and white vintage dishes, white ironstone and these DIY dollar store blue floral porcelain pumpkins that I recently made.

The soft color and pattern of this blue coverlet works so well for our Fall bedroom refresh. It's something I'll be able to use all year and satisfies my love of blue and white!

I hung the matching shams from my little white ladder that I use for throw blankets.

The pillows on my bed are bolder colors that really pop. I made the blue ones from velvet fabric I purchased when I made my DIY bolster. Just a word on my bolster pillow - if you've priced larger ones, they are so expensive! I figured out a way to make a dupe pillow using items from my linen closet! I guarantee you have these same items and won't miss them if you choose to make your own no-sew DIY bolster pillow!

The buttery yellow velvet pillows are a recent FB Marketplace purchase and I adore the ruffles! I borrowed them from my Fall dining room that's decorated with warm golds. I actually just found these pillows on Amazon for quite a bit less than I paid! You can click the link above to see all the colors available.

The faux grain sack pillow cover that I used on my DIY bolster pillow is a DIY that I'll be sharing soon! 

Bench at end of bed

I have a woven wood bench that sits at the end of our bed. It doesn't have a shelf like the inspiration image, but I love to drape a cozy throw on top. I added a white wicker basket filled with DIY ticking stripe pumpkins to the bench. At the foot of the bench, I added a large basket with a plaid fall throw, golden yellow leaves and my drop cloth Fall sign that I made last year. I love how the yellow leaves match the yellow pillow on the bed!

Something Fall related above headboard

Our tall headboard is majestic and the dark wood looks so good against our faux brick wall. I don't like to compete with it too much, plus I don't have much space up there, but I did hang a copper paper bag wreath that I made just for this post! Watch for that tutorial soon - it doesn't get more budget-friendly than a $0 fall wreath!

Pumpkins and fall leaves

I already shared my fall leaves and some of my pumpkins. I also added a more rustic pumpkin to each nightstand. My DIY pinecone pumpkin is yet another fall craft I made this year and I'll share the tutorial soon!

Hurricane Nicholas recently swept through town and left us with a yard full of branches and debris. When life gives you branches, make candleholders! This pretty bark from our crepe myrtle tree made some rustic candleholders. We simply drilled a hole in the middle to fit a taper candle. The chippy white candleholder beside it was cut from a chair spindle. I found a super easy method to create that vintage chippy look with paint - you can read it here.

I added this amazing vintage oil painting to my nightstand. The painting hung in my home when I was growing up. It was in the hallway that led to our bedrooms and I always loved it. I was lucky to inherit it when my parents passed away, and I am loving the warmth it adds to our bedroom and the abundance of leaves in various colors are so perfect for this time of year!

Mr DIY brought me home a bunch of hydrangeas when he was at Costco the other day, and I just had to include them in these pictures! I am a sucker for hydrangeas - forget roses - I must have hydrangeas always 😊

Books used to elevate decor

Over on Mr DIY's nightstand, I added a stack of hardcover books with fall-colored spines and topped it with a rustic pumpkin. It's such a simple touch that adds just a hint of fall.

I hope you're inspired to add a little Fall decor to your own bedroom! Please let me know in the comments below! πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚
