I have been all about the rustic neutral fall decor this fall. I just find a coziness and beauty in this rustic pallet that I am drawn to. I first started decorating for fall in the sunroom, filling it with neutral fall decor. Some of it store bought and some of it handmade, like my DIY Thousand Oaks Wreath. Then I moved into the dining room and shared my steps on how to decorate a hutch for fall, and now I have designed a rustic neutral fall mantel for our dining room fireplace.
I brought back my round brass mirror to be the main centerpiece for this fireplace. I bought this mirror specifically for this fireplace mantel because it contrasts so nicely with the dark black paint.
Read all about my dining room and fireplace remodel here, I share my paint colors, how I updated our fireplace mantel, as well as my tips for painting dated paneling.
From there I added in some large cream faux pumpkins as the main centerpiece and built out from there adding in some smaller cream and white pumpkins.
I found these brown hops picks and knew that they would fit right in with my rustic neutral fall mantel. I tucked them all around my white pumpkins along with some fall leaves, hydrangeas and some other extra fall foliage that I had on hand. I just kept adding in small little pieces to fill the gaps in between the pumpkins.
Then I tucked in some deer antlers that i picked up at a local vintage market to complete the look of my rustic neutral fall mantel.
This is my favorite fall mantel that I have put together so far. It contrasts so nicely and adds a touch of warmth. I think that this look would work all the way until thanksgiving. What do you think?
