It's here! The season of pumpkins, boots, and family gatherings. With the change in the season comes new inspiration for your home. Fall gives us two major holidays - Halloween and Thanksgiving - that are the perfect opportunity to embrace the spirit of the season! This time of year it is easy to draw inspiration from everything around you...from the changing leaves to the holiday traditions that bring your family together. No matter what inspires you...create a space that is uniquely you with these 3 easy ideas.
Color is one of the easiest decor elements to add to your space and incorporate both your personality and seasonal hues.
Choose a color palette that works with your existing decor or use new seasonal pieces. You don't necessarily have to stick to oranges and yellows to create the feel of the season. You can also use deep purples and browns.
If you're decorating with the furniture you already have, the best way is to add pops of these colors with accent pieces throughout the room. Try finding fabric accessories like throw pillows, blankets, and rugs that incorporate different shades of the color palette you're working with. For example, find some dark brown throw pillows with orange or purple highlights.
Fall tones also make GREAT neutral upholstery colors!
Gourds Aren't Just for Pumpkin Pie
Carving pumpkins is definitely a favorite fall past time, but with a little creativity you can use your favorite gourds to create beautiful and sophisticated decor pieces (that won't make a mess of pumpkin guts!) The good news is that you don't have to have amazing art skills to make some really cool creations. It can be as simple as painting a simple pattern or as detailed as creating a custom design. Here are some of our favorites:
Keep it Fresh
Pumpkins not your thing? Get your green thumb going with fresh flowers to make your color palette even brighter. Arrangements can be as simple or as elaborate as you'd like. You can create festive centerpieces for a special meal or simply brighten up your room. Gerber daisies and Sunflowers come in the perfect fall hues...and you can even incorporate things from the outdoors like acorns or leaves to add that extra pop. Fresh arrangements will also givey you that great fresh flower smell!
