The official start of fall has come and gone however most people don’t start to think about decorating for the fall until later in the season. Usually typical fall decorating revolves around Halloween and Thanksgiving. While those are both wonderful holidays there are lots of different, unique ways that you can incorporate fall colors into your décor for the entire season, not just for a few weeks at a time.
Combining different fall colors into the textures of your home decorating can really make a big difference in your home. The combination of browns, teals, grays and other fall colors can work for even people who aren’t a fan of traditional fall colors. Use orange and brown slip covers on pillows to accent on a white or gray couch for an instant pop of color. Use a rug with different fall colors in your living room for an extra dimension.
Yellows are traditionally thought of as spring and summer shades however yellow works great with fall colors as well. Combining yellows with browns and oranges will help bring the traditional look of the changing leaves outdoors inside your home. Dark browns are easy to decorate with. You can find an abundance of furniture with shades of dark brown to use in your home during fall.
If you’re thinking of using fall colors to paint your home, but you want something that will last all year long think about burnt red. Burnt red is a color that works great with cremes and mossy greens and it is a versatile color that screams fall but works just as well the rest of the year. Painting will get you in the mood for fall and using burnt red means you won’t have to update the look to your home anytime soon.
Patterns are another great option for using fall colors in your home decorating. Earthy accents that are combined with fabrics (like drapes in the living room or your bedspread) is an eye-catching way to add the colors of this changing season to your home. Patterns will create a cozy feel for your home and will welcome your guests into a relaxing environment.
