2021 Fall Decor Trends with Coastal Home Decor


As September approaches, it’s fun to start planning out how to incorporate Coastal fall decor into your home. However, getting into the fall spirit can be challenging when you live in a coastal climate. Because it’s so hot and humid in Charleston until late October, you really don’t feel like it’s fall until it’s almost over. I’ve found that it’s best to incorporate neutral colors into your coastal design. So, before you remove all of your coastal decor in preparation for fall, follow a few of my tips here to create a coastal look with 2021 fall decor trends in mind.

Coastal Fall Decor Trends (for 2021)

Most of my home is decorated with neutral colors like whites, creams, blues and browns. You can read more about my home decor here. So when fall arrives, I try to continue my color palette and incorporate it into fall decor. This year, I’m seeing amber hues everywhere, with different textures like crackled glass, terracotta and more.

Studio McGee recently came out with a new line at Target that had a variety of amber hues. Because those colors tend to be more neutral, they’re easier to incorporate into most existing home decor.

Coastal fall decor trends include mixing textures - like these fall throw pillows with different fabrics and patterns.

Shelf Styling with Coastal Fall Decor

Built-in bookshelves, fireplace mantels and consoles are fun places to incorporate pops of fall. If you have a lantern or glass vase, those are perfect items to fill with small white pumpkins like I did above. You can also incorporate neutral-colored pumpkins on your shelving. Placing a pumpkin on coffee table books creates varying heights and focal points on the shelves too.

If you’re looking to add warmer hues like red and orange, consider adding one pop of color like maroon leaves in a neutral vase. Or you could use a rustic earthenware blue vase and incorporate pampas grass as a way to incorporate a pop of rustic color. The pampas grass is a great alternative to a standard fall-colored leaf for fall florals.

Coffee Table Styling with Coastal Fall Decor

Coffee table styling is much like shelf styling. I like to incorporate neutral vases with florals, and pumpkin scented candles. Often times there’s some type of bowl on a coffee table, and think this year we’re going to see a lot of artichokes, pears and dried pampas grass as filler for those. Of course, you could also do the white pumpkins too.

To add coastal textures, you can add a jute or woven rug to your living or dining area to give the space some warmth. Rattan baskets are very popular this year, and are fun to add to wall decor.

Add Some Fun Coastal Fall Decor

Though I love all things neutral and pretty and not too themed, I also have three kiddos that love all of the holidays. For their playroom, I incorporated this cute little pumpkin with a face in place of the “A” in their PLAY sign. I also replaced the florals with this pampas grass in the neutral vases.

Tj Maxx and Marshalls are great places to find affordable Coastal fall decor that's on trend and sure to never go out of style, like wall art, furniture, rugs, and accents like throw pillows.

Another way to incorporate fall into your decor is to add amber-hued throw pillows and throw blankets. I also really like the look of faux leather pillows against a neutral couch or chair.

Spice up your Coastal fall decor with Halloween accents like pumpkins. this console table doubles as kids storage with woven baskets and books.

We can’t forget about these cute little bats. These were everywhere in 2020 and I think they’ll continue to be wildly popular this year as well. Yes, they’re bats but they’re small and black and my kids love them. Also say hi to our skeleton. He’s pretty fun too.
