How to Decorate a Modern Home for Fall

Salisbyr at Enjoy floral studio - modern centrepiece for thanksgiving

As we transition into fall, it’s fun to switch up our indoor scenery to complement all the beautiful colour palettes and motifs we see outside in nature. However, when you picture fall indoor decorating, this probably conjures some images of kitschy plastic tablecloths, scarecrow figurines, and other decor accents that don’t exactly jive with a modern, stylish aesthetic.

How do you decorate for fall without looking like you raided the seasonal aisle at Dollarama? The answer: fresh fall flowers and plants! Nothing compares to the natural beauty of real plants, and there are so many modern and creative ways to style them.  

Here’s some inspiration to get you started on your fall interior home makeover!      

Fresh Flowers and Plants for Modern Fall Decor

Celebrate the prettiest season of all by bringing those gorgeous autumn colours inside! Leave the scarecrow in the garden””these beautiful fall plants will make a much more stylish statement as part of your home decor.  

Pampas Grass

The wispy, voluminous plumes atop these ornamental grasses are just so dreamy and romantic. You’ve probably seen them pop up in magazine ads, photoshoots on social media, and wedding backdrops””pampas grass is having a real moment right now! Get on the trend and bring home a bundle of pampas grass to pop into some pretty decorative urns or vases.  

Feather grasses like pampas grass are beautiful on their own or in mixed arrangements with other fall flowers. The lighter, cream-coloured pampas grasses have an especially dreamy, heavenly quality, but for fall, we’re swooning over the darker varieties tinted with rosy blush, gold, and cafe au lait.

You can’t help but feel a little spark of joy when you catch a glimpse of these perpetually cheerful blooms. The sunshine yellow petals and chocolate brown centres never fail to warm up the scenery with a golden glow. Some varieties have a fiery-red flush that perfectly captures the classic fall colour palette. Display them in a pretty antique canister””preferably something with a warm tone, like copper or bronze. Alternatively, a deep navy or burgundy vase will create a striking colour contrast that feels decidedly modern.        


There are so many different varieties of hydrangeas with such magnificent colours! For fall, we lean more towards hydrangeas that sport shades of purple, green, cream, or rosy pink””the blue ones are better suited for spring. They last as cut flowers in bouquets, but they’re also excellent for drying and preserving as part of a forever floral bouquet. Try making your own indoor fall wreath with dried hydrangeas by attaching them to a metal hoop with florist wire. They’re surprisingly elegant and modern!

These distinctive flowers are perfect for fall because they come in all the quintessential colours for the season: gold, orange, cardinal red, plum purple, and deep-burgundy wine. There are even multi-coloured varieties with an ultra-vibrant ombré colour effect, with yellow blooms at the base that transition to orange, then coral pink at the top.  

To give your snapdragon arrangement more of a rustic autumnal vibe, take some thick twine and wrap it around a plain glass vase a few times, tying it off with a bow. It’s a subtle and straightforward way to fit the theme without treading into kitsch territory.
