Fall marks the start of peaceful days and cozy nights, and the beautiful shades of brown, yellow, orange, and red apple are some of nature’s most awe-inspiring images during the season. Whether you’re tired of your year-round décor or decorating a new house in Irvine, reinvigorate your living space with a few autumnal touches.
Flowers and Branches
Welcome guests with an autumnal focal point by placing natural elements and warm tones in the foyer or entryway. Try a gold hammered vase full of earthy accents like wildflowers and twigs or fill a clear vase with pinecones to mirror the feeling of fall.
Instantly bring warmth into a living room or sitting room with rattan baskets. Consider stacking the baskets with fruit or interesting coffee table books. Display them on coffee tables, end tables, and mantels.
Throw Pillows and Cashmere Throws
In the same way you dress for the cool weather, you should dress the rooms of your home in layers. Drape a toasty brown cashmere throw over the back of a wingback chair or at the foot of the bed. Another option is to place gold throw pillows on chairs, couches, and beds to add a touch of elegance to any room.
Rugs and Runners
Bring the season of fall into the dining room with an area rug that incorporates deep candy apple red, golden yellow, pumpkin orange and chocolate brown. Or consider placing a burlap runner on the dining room table to give a little texture to the room.
Stools, Benches, and Poufs
Accent rooms with colorful stools, benches and poufs. Place them throughout the home to create a “stay for a while” feel. Stage them in front of couches, under tables, and in corners to add liveliness to a boring library or den.
From the coffee table to breakfast in bed, every room needs a tray (or two). Use seasonal colors to welcome fall with open arms.
