New season mean new styles. As more home brands start to roll out their fall 2022 collections, there’s a lot to love right now by way of warm-hued accents and cozy decorative details. Even autumn-friendly neutrals seem to be having a moment, as seen in repeated materials like sleek dark metals and woods.

Whatever your design preferences, though, now’s officially the time to start welcoming fall (with open, sweater-laden arms) into your own living space. You’ll probably be spending more time inside over the upcoming months, so why not why make home feel, well, even homier with a little redecorating refresh? Emphasis on the little — you don’t need an all-out makeover when something as small-scale (and budget-friendly) as a patterned throw pillow or fun vase can make any room look brand new and hangout worthy. 

To help kick off your seasonal shopping, I rounded up a few of my favorite fall décor accents from Target, Etsy, West Elm, and more below — and they’re all under $60! Best of all, you can use them all year round, too, so you can get the most bang for your buck.

From Target’s beloved Studio McGee collection, this 3’ x 5’ handmade rug puts a pretty striped spin on classic jute. The warm color contrast screams fall, although it’s worthy of evergreen use in your living room or bedroom (or both… ).

Pottery Barn

Embrace ~spooky season~ with these moody black candle holders, which come in three different sizes starting at $24.50. Play around with heights and taper styles to dress up your mantel, or set the scene for a Halloween dinner party.

Layer a pop of pattern onto your sofa or bed a la this orange Etsy find. The eye-catching gingham style feels equal parts classic and cozy, and you can’t beat the less-than-$30 price point (pillow insert included!).

Crate & Barrel

Regardless of the temp outside, a classic neutral throw is a sofa-adjacent staple. This one’s soft enough to earn permanent movie-night-cuddle-worthy status ("When Harry Met Sally" rewatch, anyone?). I love the two-toned look, as well, and it’s available in five equally fall-friendly tones.

If you’re looking to go green and lean into the nature-inspired look this fall, H&M has you covered. Their new 20” x 20” pillow cover touts sleek-looking piping and a trendy tone that would pair especially well against a lighter-hued couch or accent chair.

’Tis the season of farmers' market dried florals, which calls for a display-worthy vase to show off your favorites. This decorative glass focal point clocks in at 14" tall — perfect for an oversized eucalyptus arrangement, just saying — but you can also shop matching small and medium sizes for the full, rust-colored collection.
