Autumn announces its arrival with the reappearance of such old friends as a Halloween carved jack-o-lantern, the colorful colleague of fallen leaves, Friday night high school football and an abundance of crisp fall apples. As daylight hours shorten and the temperatures become cooler our thoughts naturally turn to decorating our home for the coming months. Fall is the time to enrich our rooms with warmth, color and texture. Adding seasonal accessories transforms the look and feel of any room. A few well placed touches in any room add character and visually welcome your guests for this favorite time of year.
As seasons change, so does our decorating sense. Transform your cool, summertime rooms into cozy comfortable settings. The colors and texture in this reading nook feel warm and natural – it leisurely invites you to relax, linger and curl up with a good book. Note how the simple white vase adds a crisp feeling to this traditional fall color scheme.
This typically neutral space comes to life with fall colors. Adapt your surroundings with rich color, natures bounty for bringing the outdoors in and a layered warmth of texture. This simple formula allows you to create rooms that celebrate the comfort of autumn. I love the solid wood accent table in between the two chairs. A touch of organic authenticity that’s perfect in this eclectic design.
Orange and Blue – a stunning color combination that easily welcomes you home. It’s a bit of fall without the clichéd fall decorating theme. It’s beauty and balance, freshness and fashion – it creates a setting that compliments style and welcomes the change of season in a relaxed, inspired way.
This subtle orange and blue palette is both beautiful and stylish – a casual atmosphere that feels natural and calming.
Fall is a season for gathering – a time of plenty. Whether it’s sharing an abundant harvest from your garden or enjoying frequent get-togethers with family and friends, prepare your home with all the beauty this season offers. Nature’s bounty is waiting!
