Fall decorating ideas in navy and brown.
It took a long time this year for me to fully embrace summer. It was well into July before I shared my pasty white legs with the world, and that’s only because I was forced to. You just can’t wear long pants in Florida in July.
Trust me, I tried. And it wasn’t pretty. Pasty white legs trumped dripping in sweat.
Luckily I was in Florida. On vacation. And within days turned my pasty white self into bronzed and beautiful.
Okay, maybe pink and tender at first. Which eventually turned bronze and beautiful.
But now that morning temperatures are dipping lower and lower each day as we approach fall, I’m clinging to my shorts. Even as I shopped and decorated the living room for fall …
I sported shorts and flips flops with a sweatshirt.
I mean, I owed the world a look at my Florida bronzed legs, after all. 😉
I kept my fall decorating simple and clean. Mostly because I’m vignette challenged. 😉
But I am sewing proficient(ish) and made some envelope pillow covers in brown and navy and blue and white ticking. I coupled those pillows with layered throws (you know, to keep my bronzed short-clad legs warm on those cool fall mornings).
My daughter has staked her claim in that comfy corner of the couch and can frequently be found perched there with a cup of tea in hand and a laptop atop her lap.
I’m just waiting for one of those twine wreaths to fall on her head. They’re only attached with some Command strips and Scotch tape. Tee hee.
Why yes, I am up for a mother of the year award! 😉
The simple (vignette-challenged) theme continues on the fantel mantel radiator cover. A new driftwood sunburst mirror (that, upon closer inspection, could use a shot of Windex …ah well.) is anchored by mason jars, hydrangea and faux pumpkins and acorns I found at Michaels.
Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my navy and brown fall decor in the living room. And while I didn’t share a picture of my fabulous bronzed short-clad legs, I can share some links to even more fabulous fall decorating inspiration. I’m proud to be part of a week-long fall decor home tour organized by Brenda at Cozy Little House (thanks Brenda for including me!).

Shelley @ Calypso in the Country says
Your vignettes are beautiful – you are not “challenged” at all! Love the color combo. It’s what I have in my office where I spend much of my day. Now I want navy walls somewhere…
Heidi @ Decor & More says
Looks great, Linda! The navy is so fresh ~ enjoy!
Kim @ Exquisitely Unremarkable says
I’m a simple girl, too and I think your place looks just perfect for fall!

Everything looks lovely! I was supposed to do a tour, but it got cancelled, and I just stopped decorating.
We have navy walls in our entryway but it has never crossed my mind to coordinate it with brown!! What a beautiful combination and just the kick start I need to transition into fall. Very lovely – thank you for sharing.

Hello, I am visiting from the tour! I enjoy decorating with neutrals for fall, too. The burlap acorn is adorable! Blessings, Cecilia
your living room look just beautiful. I love all your fall touches.
Cristina @ Remodelando la Casa says
Love the color combo, the simple touches of fall, and all those pillows! So pretty!
Brenda Kula-Pruitt says
I created a Pinterest board today just for our tour. But I don’t see a Pin It Button on your photos! Guess I’ll have to figure a way to do it somehow. I have to dedicate a space to all this gorgeousness!
Brenda Kula-Pruitt says
Okay, found your Pin It Button and have pinned!
I never thought of navy and brown for fall, but I do like it! Love what you did with the Mason jar!
It looks great Linda! How are your navy and white rugs holding up? I’m not sure if my house is getting falled or not. Probably not. Maybe I’ll head straight to Christmas.
Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces says
This is so lovely! I love the navy/brown combination…it makes the green and bronze accents shine. It’s all so wonderful together!
Kristi @ Chatfield Court says
So pretty Linda, and I love the navy and brown combo you used. It looks like a very comfy room.
Absolutely beautiful! I love the mix of colors and the elegance of your decor. It works together perfectly! Ahem, however, I did not see a photo of the perfectly tanned legs anywhere in the decor…LOL
Linda a.k.a. Quandie says
Found you via the fall home tour. Love your use of navy, brown and white. Very fresh and modern.
Hi Linda, what an amazing room, love the navy wall color and fabulous white paneling!
Janet (Shabbyfufu) says
Love the navy and I haven’t been to your blog before so this was a visual treat!
This was spectacular! Gorgeous combination of colors to bring in Fall. Beautiful home!
Botanic Bleu says
Beautiful blue and white walls! Your home looks very inviting with just the right amount of decor. As I looked at photos of my bedroom this week, I think the room looks too cluttered. Your living room instead has just the right amount of layers for a cozy look. I, too, want a navy wall someplace in my house…. the utility room maybe?
Great vignettes! I pinned the very first photo onto my Fall Pinterest board.
Love your navy and brown take on fall! SO beautiful and fresh. ~julie
If you’re vignette challenged, then I hate to say what I am (it wouldn’t be PC but I think you can guess).
Love your wainscoting, and the combination of colors and patterns work so well together!
I’m so glad Brenda is bringing so many of us together! This is fun 🙂
Jennifer @ Town and Country Living says
Simply beautiful, Linda!!
Ohhh, that navy!! Everything is so perfectly put together but not overly formal. The perfect place to put up your feet with a cup of coffee. Gorgeous!!
Kyla @HouseOfHipsters says
This room is gorgeous! I adore the neutrals and navy. Emily Henderson just featured the new Fall Target Collection and you nailed everything! Drooling!
laura@duke manor farm says
i think fall and your living room are bff’s. that color combo is amazing.
I always see navy blue and white combination like a sailor theme. But what you did here – the brown- blue- white mix, is absolutely awesome and unique.

All looks wonderful, but don’t get too used to the cool temps, I’m sending you another blast of humid.
So tasteful and inviting!! It’s gorgeous.
Elaine @ sunnysimplelife.com says
I love your home. Our den is in navy. The mason jar is so cute. Did you make it?
Thank you so much! And, yes, I did make the mason jar! 🙂 Linda

I am a HUGE fan!! I love the navy and brown together. It is a great color combination, and I love how it steps away from the “normal” fall like colors. Great job! Your living room is simply stunning.
Thank you so much! 🙂
I absolutely love your living room. I’ll admit when I saw navy and brown I was a bit skeptical, but you’ve paired them together flawlessly. Your living room is so cozy! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you! I love my fall living room too! It feels warm and cozy! 🙂
