With fall in full swing, you’re sure to see the lovely colors of autumn decorations in nearly every store and on every street. Perhaps you are feeling a desire to bring those fresh fall colors into your own home to add flare and excitement, or perhaps a sense of peace and relaxation. It’s clear that one’s home decor has a huge impact on our state of well-being, so it’s easy to see how playing with one or more of the following fall color and decorating trends for autumn can be an invigorating project:
Pumpkin and asparagus – as if preparing for a lovely Thanksgiving meal, using the flavorful colors of pumpkin and asparagus can bring a warm and cozy feel to a room. Warming oranges keep the mood light while the healing hue of green lends a soothing effect.
Rich browns – there’s no need to think of brown as boring, as the number of shades are limitless. Mixing a variety of rich browns among your furnishings, walls, window dressings, and decorations can set a very inviting tone, particularly for living rooms and other gathering areas.
Walls of rust – adding the dramatic flare of rust colored walls can bring out the best in your lighting and serves as the perfect contrast for lighter colored pictures and decorations.
Bring on the wine – the striking color of deep red wine serves as an intense accent. Pillows and chair coverings provide excellent mediums to bring the rich color into a room.
Maple red – reminiscing the falling leaves of a maple tree, adding a splash of red can really invigorate a room. Your “splash” can be something as small as a table lamp or as large as a bed comforter – but either way, it is sure to attract attention.
Orange tones – gentle enough to use in large amounts such as entire sectionals or covering all or part of a wall, orange tones bring an appetizing energy to those privileged to enjoy the space.
Bronze elegance – when you want to prepare a space that will hold an elegant feeling, bronze colors should be at the top of your list. They also serve as the perfect background, as you can place a variety of more boldly colored accent pieces.
Exotic blends – with no rules in the trends of fall decor, you can really express your own creativity by using an exotic blend of rich autumn colors to create a work of art. Mix up shades of reds, browns, and oranges and dazzle yourself with the results.
Regardless of which fall color and decorating trends are most appealing to you, the most important thing is to have fun through the entire process. From selecting the perfect pieces to their final arrangements, you can really give your space a makeover with these lively autumn hues.
