A change of season is a great time and reason to update your décor. Redesigning for the season doesn't have to be major. It can be as simple as adding a front door mat, wreath  and mini-tablescape at the foyer that depicts the season. Or you can make it a little less routine, by updating your bedding or outfitting the bathroom with colors of the season.  This fall, here are some tips for incorporating a rustic-autumn feel to your home:

Colors

  • Most fall seasons, we repeatedly see a resurgence in rustic, changing-of-the-leaves colors such as deep auburn, maroon or amber. This year I’ve noticed an exciting exception to this cyclical trend in the form of deep jewel tones. Try a little something unexpected and embrace this unique trend by adding sapphire, emerald or indigo accents.
  • If you prefer a less risky look, all-grey is also a popular aesthetic for Fall 2016. Try mixing and matching different hues and shades to develop a cool, industrial-modern look.

Décor

  • Add a bit of glamour to an otherwise outdoorsy look, by mixing in metallic gold accent pieces by way of candleholders, catch-all trays, dinnerware or any other small accents that might work in your particular home.
  • A festive way to decorate for a certain time of year is to display a seasonal floral bouquet. To keep it fresh for at least a week, be sure to remove all leaves below the water line and change the vase’s water every three days.
  • Many people are too eager to pack up their patio furniture at the end of summer and they end up missing out on a great opportunity to decorate a cozy outdoor area to take advantage of clear, cool fall days and nights. Add colorful patterned throw blankets and accent pillows around outdoor fire pits, porches and decks.

Happy Fall, Tricia :)
