How to Welcome Fall with a Stylish and Cozy Home
Out of every season, fall can be quite tricky when it comes to decorating. It might be easy to settle for kitschy autumn decor, but this year, why not take it up a notch with everything from eye-catching wreaths to floral patterned throw pillows?
Here are some wonderfully practical tips from professional designers to inspire you to celebrate the beauty of the season with chic decor.
Orange velvet accents
A dose of velvet never fails to add warmth to a room. To celebrate the fall season, go for an orange velvet accent, like a throw pillow or a curved sofa, which can be the highlight of your space year-round.
Faux fur throws
Who doesn’t love the sumptuous look of a drape of white faux fur throws over the back of dining chairs? It’s such an easy and luxurious look.
Seasonal nature tablecloth
A tablecloth adorned in an autumn floral motif is an easy way to add a sophisticated touch to a fall table arrangement. Check your own fabric stash for inspiration or material before you shop. Why not add a chic runner when you find two lovely complimentary fabrics? Add elegant place cards and monogrammed cloth napkins to make your harvest table feel even more special.
We’ve all done sunflowers, orange pumpkins, or mums to grace a fall table, and there’s a reason why it’s popular! It’s adorable and traditional, but have you ever thought about taking things up a notch? This year, try an unexpected combination of pheasant feathers, pine cones, and white pumpkins. These pieces truly pop against a palette of white and gold dishes and serving pieces.
Rethink the wreath
A fall welcome wreath doesn’t have to be orange. Take a cue from nature and consider incorporating blackberries, pine cones, dark feathers, peacock tones, wheat stalks, and rich jewels into dried greenery.
Tablescape of plenty
Embrace the harvest season by thinking farm to table style when you prepare for your next dinner party. Fill your tablescape with an abundance of pomegranates, tangerines, figs, and grapes, with colorful leaves and plenty of long, tapered candles throughout. It’s gorgeous, so easy, and perfect to share with guests.
It may still feel like summer out there, but one of our most beloved times of year is almost here. Let’s make it lovely!
