Go Green

While orange and black are easily identifiable as Halloween colors, you don’t want your house to scream spooky time the whole season so consider other fall colors like greens and browns. Green is going to a popular color this fall for walls and even cabinetry. It works real well with wood accents and can create a cozy atmosphere in your home.

Velvet, Not Just for Little Girls

Don’t worry, there is so much more than you can do with velvet especially in your home. Velvet is fabric that connotes luxury and is associated with the chillier weather of the fall and winter seasons. Add Velvet curtains to your bedroom or even the living room to bring some added warmth to the room on cold days. If that is too much of a bold statement, go for a more subtle look with velvet pillows or velvet swathes in the couch or reading chair.

Contrasting velvet fabric with natural textures like wood and woven baskets and metals and ceramics will create a sophisticated space that is at the same time very comfy and cozy.

Become Basket Case

While you might think wicker and woven textile to be more suitable for the summer time, they are going to be big this fall. You will see hanging baskets in kitchens and foyers and even family rooms. And look up when you are visiting the homes of family and friends because you will also see more basket pendant light fixtures. Just make sure you soften the rough texture with some softer textures like hand-knit throw blankets or a soft cowhide rug.

Show Your Softer Side with Blush

Besides shades of green, blush is also going to an IT color for the fall season. It will be perfect when you want soften a design like if you have a lot of hard lines and metal and glass. If you don’t normally like such a light color, find small ways to include it in your mouth with overwhelming your design. Maybe it is just one of the colors in the wallpaper or you just paint one wall blush. Have fun trying to figure out what works best for the look you desire.

Brass Is Your New Copper

This is fall is the perfect time to replace all your copper finishes with brass which exudes a more subtle sophistication. You will feel like you landed in Downton Abbey, you will be surprised how luxurious you feel.

Celebrate Fall with Fresh Flowers

Probably the easiest way to bring a little nature into your home is to have fresh flowers in vases throughout your home. They bring the bright colors and sweet scents of the outdoors and the fall season in your home. Fresh cut flowers can really brighten a space. For a real natural touch, use only wildflowers.

It is not just flowers though that can be brought in from the outside. Think creatively about how you can arrange other natural items into the house like a basket of sticks or pretty stone scattered around the living room. Even an arrangement of fresh vegetables in a bowl on the kitchen table can be a nice touch.

Indulge in Some Cowhide

Think about a cowhide rug to warm up the living room floor or by the fireplace in the master bedroom on a chilly fall night. The great thing about cowhide is that it is very versatile. It also works great as a throw rug over the couch in the den or as a tapestry to warm up the walls of the dining room.

Another great thing about cowhide is that it is very versatile and comes in very different colors and patterns so you can find whatever you are looking for. And each cow’s hide is unique so you know no one else will have the same exact piece that you have.

Homemade Decorations

Homemade creations that use natural elements will also be a big hit this fall. String some beautiful leaves together to decorate your stairwell or make a centerpiece out of acorns this fall. Your guests will love that you put your own personal stamp on the space.

All You Need Is the Right Illumination

Fall is definitely a time when we feel closer to nature. It is not as hot as it is in the summer so we come out from the air condition and really try to connect to with the world for a while before we being to hibernate for the winter.

And of course, what is the most natural source of lighting besides the sun? The first thing that comes to mind is probably candles. Try scattering some scented candles around the house that you can light up after a hard, stressful day. You will be amazed at how much better you will feel after relaxing in a sea of candlelight.

Get Cozy By the Fireplace

If you have a fireplace but don’t really use it that much, now is the time to clean up it and decorate with some fall foliage and candle to make it the perfect spot to snuggle up with loved ones at night.
