EASY AUTUMN DECORATING IDEAS

Tuesday, October 10, 2017


We're in the heart of Autumn and I want nothing more than to head out the door in turtlenecks and darling tights. Today's weather has me hopeful that day will come sooner than later, and in the meantime, I'm getting festive with Autumn decorating in the house! 

It was important for me to incorporate color, texture, and patterns, to create a feeling of warmth and coziness for the Fall season. Pops of navy and black have been my favorite colors this year, surrounding a color palette of neutrals and wood tones. Leather has also made a big impression on me this Fall because I love the rustic qualities in the furniture and accessories. Rather than choosing pumpkins as the main decor prop, I've been using beautiful pears and wheat bunches to adorn my home. And let's not forget the main show piece, plaid prints! Autumn decorating could't be anymore inviting!


Here are some easy ways to infuse the feeling of Autumn into your home:

WOOD TONES




Wood tones add rusticity, warmth, and a natural element to any space. Try using a combination of lighter and darker wood tones to give that cabin like feel in the home. After growing up in Northern California, it reminds me of the times we would camp & hike in Lake Tahoe during November. I can already smell the pine trees now!


PLAID, BUFFALO CHECK PRINT + LEATHER




Add texture and interest through classic patterns. Plaid and buffalo check print are huge this Autumn! I love seeing this cozy print in pillows and even in this stunning chair by Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.  Lived in Leather also adds a cozy and masculine quality, which works so beautifully in the small details and with larger furniture pieces.


ADD WARM COLORS

Infuse warm colors to create a Fall color scheme! For me, I wanted to start with a neutral color palette that included vintage brass and earthy tones. I then brought in accent colors of navy, black, and cognac for depth and mood. You can incorporate color casually, like in the flowers in my inspiration board or in a wreath or small area rug. Wheat bunches, like this from Magnolia Market would even make a lovely centerpiece, with it's graceful golden tones. I also hope to add this darling farmhouse bench in our entry that will work perfectly now and year round. ** wink, wink, hubby **




FRESH PRODUCE

Although I love adding a decorative pumpkin here and there, I think adding fresh produce to a harvest basket or wood tray is a brilliant way to add interest and liveliness to your Autumn home.  I was drawn to the gorgeous fall colors in the Pears I found at my local grocery store and thought they were a festive way to complete this look. 



Of course, I couldn't include an Autumn post without pumpkin decor. So, here are some pumpkin pretties that would be cute to add on the dining table. 



Be sure to also check out places like Home Goods and Hobby Lobby, which have tons of fantastic decor options. That about rounds up my Autumn picks for 2017 and I hope this inspires you to transform your home into an inviting and cozy space. 

Warmly ~
