When fall rolls around each year, I’m so inspired by the change in seasons and the breathtaking colors it brings that I often want to go pretty over-the-top with my fall decorating. Between the uptrending oxblood and fall’s ever popular orange, I just can’t get enough. Although it’s pretty easy to get carried away by the autumnal palette and cozy textures, your home will look a lot more pulled together using a few easy tips for seasonal decorating.
Here are my top five tips:
ONE pick one pop which you love. This season, I’m all about oxblood (even painted my nails a similar shade last night!!)
TWO incorporate some patterns which support that color. Pillows are a great place to do this!
THREE texture texture texture! This keeps the look from being too ‘canned’ and gives some dimension to your room.
FOUR use naturals and whites to ground the color and pattern. Too much will look like walking into your fave store. You want it to look like your home, just more fall-y.
FIVE bring in some greenery. an herbal evergreen (like rosemary) doesn’t need to be watered too often, smells amazing, and you can use it in your holiday cooking.
And what’s more, I am a big advocate of thinking throughout the whole holiday season. It’s easy to transition this look into the winter holidays… Pick items that will look great (swap a pillow or two) with your Christmas decor as well. If you replaced the patterned pillows above for some sequined beauties, that looks like a total holiday transformation to me.
