Coastal fall mantel ideas and even though it may still be summer we are look ahead to inspire your seasonal planning. I wanted to share these exquisite silk velvet pumpkins and acorns that are perfect for a COASTAL look. They will just bring that amazing aqua autumn color to the fall decorations in your home and something really different!

Aqua is the perfect color to bring the beach coastal look in and a color that you can truly use year round. Like on this mantel! You don’t need a mantel to style this way and can do a similar look on a shelf or bookcase and even create fall table decorations by piling the pumpkins on high. I showed you how to do that in THIS POST, one of the most popular around here!
Let’s go through a little step by step to get you started!

Coastal Fall Mantel Ideas With Velvet Pumpkins

  • Clear the clutter…just like I always recommend when styling something new.
  • After clearing the previous clutter I wiped down the mantel and added some silver tipped eucalyptus just tossed lengthwise across the mantel.
  • Then I just began layering and you can see more of how I styled this look in the straight on photo below. Don’t just line things up…look at your angles and put some of the pumpkins sideways or prop against the wall or each-other.
  • Watch for movement of color and use a variety of colors in your mix.
  • Add in any additional accessories, and here I added some velvet acorns, old tattered books and some white roses. Notice how I used a vintage Mason jar to hold some roses and picked the color aqua back up in that?

If you love a coastal look you can add in some of your treasures from the sea that you’ve collected over the summer months. How about some bleached white seashells or coral? What about mixing in some vintage bottles or inkwells that you find at a flea market in aqua colors? I’ve seen some nice reproduction bottles lately in the big discount stores that so pretty to collect. The velvet pumpkins are from Love Feast Shop and I’ll be sharing some more coastal fall mantel ideas soon, so watch for that.

I can envision these on my beach farm table and they will make for a fabulous centerpiece. You can see that I don’t have a million gazillion velvet pumpkins here, but have filled in with a bird’s nest and everything else that I’ve mentioned. This is how you stretch your decorating dollar to go further…by filling in your main focal point with what you already own or can grab from the garden!

    Hi, I have been a follower of yours for awhile and would love a chance to win a set of the pink pumpkins to share with my little sister ~ she is a 2 yr breast cancer survivor. This would absolutely be a wonderful addition to her milestone celebrations!!! May god bless!

  40. I too love the turquoise and taupe combination and Love Feast's pumpkins are beautiful in any color! I have hunter green leather couches from the 90's that I have to work around so I would probably stick with the taupe pumpkins. Your blog inspires me with your neutrals and whites, and the thought of slip covering those green couches is pretty tempting….Thanks , Janet, for all the efforts you put into making life beautiful!

  41. I love the NEW Velvet Pumpkin Halloween Large Set w/ Acorns.
