Adding Fall Colors

Fall is the season of elegance, style and sophisticated colors, so you might want to consider adding some gold, pumpkin orange or Bordeaux to your fall home decor color scheme.

These colors balance out the colors of fallen leaves, gray days and cold nights. I feel comfortable and warm just by looking at them. Even though the look this year has more neutral decorating tones, swap out your decorative pillows, and a fancy chunky knit blanket for your hints of fall. Then curl up on your sofa with a fire slowly crackling in the background.

We’re talking wood, we’re talking metal, we’re talking animal elements and we’re talking other outdoor elements.

Modern Fall Home Decor Elegance

If your home is designed in a modern way and you feel there is no way to combine your décor with fall’s rustic elements, create your fall home decor with a minimalist look and feel in mind.

Use monochromatic tableware, like a chocolate brown table runner and white tablecloth or white utensils with brownish accents. Since the table should be minimalist, do not over crowd with elements but keep it simple and neutral.

If your rooms don’t feel full with the coziness of fall, use scented candles to layer fall scent into your decor.

Your Tea Cups Matter!

Be happy fellow tea lovers, because tea season is finally here!
