Having guest here at StoneGable is always such a treat! And fall is my very favorite time to open our doors to overnight guests. This area is so beautiful and the quintessential picture of what fall should be! I love to bring a little touch of all the outside beauty into the guest rooms as a special treat for my guests. Here are some fun, fabulous and oh, so fall ways to decorate a guest bedroom!
The room I am featuring today is not my primary guest bedroom. So, because I don’t share it very often I thought you would like to see it dressed up for fall.
Today we are talking about tucking a tad of fall into our guest rooms, not dumping the fall haywagon into the room. A little goes a long, long way!
I believe that a guest room should be very uncluttered to give my guest room to move around in their room. So, I’m very discriminating in adding bits of fall to the room!
This room has a distinctly farmhouse/cottage feel. To work with the room I used white, blue and orange fall elements.
Just something to think about, make sure your guest don’t have allergies to anything that you bring in from the outdoors.
ADD A PUMPKIN OR TWO
Mini pumpkins are perfect for guest bedrooms! They are small and unobtrusive and who doesn’t love these darling fall veggies-turned-decoration!
I added a baby boo pumpkin to the top of the books stacked on the bench. It’s so cute and a very fun way to add a little fall to the room.
I tucked a blue pumpkin (they sorta look green to me) in the scale of the clock. It wouldn’t be my decor if I didn’t add a little “fluff” around the bottom of the pumpkin! I like to add a little orange to blue and white in the fall. Orange and blue are complimentary colors and look amazing together!

USE SEASONAL PILLOWS
I say, “Any excuse to buy more pillows”! If you add one seasonal element to your guest room, or any room this fall, make it a fall inspired pillow! There are so many wonderful ones to choose from. Click HERE to see FALL PILLOW LOVE. A post that has lots of resources for fall pillows!
These over-the-top gorgeous pumpkin pillows are made from paintings by the very talented Lucy from Craftberry Bush. I love love love her blog and her too! What a sweet spirit! I purchased these pillows from SOCIETY 6. Their pillow covers are very reasonably priced.
Flowers are a must in my guest rooms. Just a small vase or pitcher of them on the bedside table makes any guest feel very cared for and special!
Mums that are transplanted in cute pots or marigolds from the garden would be a lovely way to let your guests know you are happy they are visiting you.
FALL INSPIRED MAGAZINES AND BOOKS
When my family comes to visit they love to go through my magazines and enjoy them! I try to stock up the guest room with some favorite fall reads!
I keep hunting and golfing magazines for the men.
LOTS OF COZY THROWS
This is the time of year I get out throws and tartans and put a couple in each guest room. Our guests can cover their laps as they sit in a chair or grab a throw and cover themselves if they want to take a little nap. Throws add a great layer of texture and color to a room too!
The blue tartan that is pared with the white quilt was bought in England when I was a little girl! Wool tartan “car rugs” wear like iron and a very warm. I love having them around the house in chilly weather!
