Bring Fall’s Bounty Inside


Autumn Palettes || Warm up your home with rich fall colors

The fall season is an ideal opportunity to update your rooms with fresh colors that reflect nature’s bounty. From upholstered seating to accent tables, and plush area rugs to throws and toss pillows, you can add colorful layers of comfort to any room. Traditional fall hues include red, yellow, and every shade of orange. Pumpkin orange is a popular favorite. For inspiration, simply look out your window at any New England landscape, and admire the many color variations of the leaves.

Balance out your color scheme with earthy browns plus greens like ivy, olive, evergreen, and eucalyptus. Elevate your fall color palette even more with purple, burgundy, and shades of grey. In general, fall hues are darker in contrast to spring’s sunny yellows and bright greens. For added depth and definition, mix rich fall colors with black. Ultimately, you should create a mix of colors and patterns that suits your style, and makes you feel most comfortable. Fall is one time of year when it feels natural being a homebody, so why not make it as richly colorful inside as it is outside?

Velvety Upholstery || Fall means velvet season, and few furniture pieces feel cozier than a plush velvety sofa. Because of its softly brushed quality, velvety fabric takes on different color variations depending on how the light hits it. One thing to keep in mind, some velvets can wear out quicker than other fabrics. Durable microfiber fabric is a good choice for upholstered pieces because it has the look of velvet yet handles everyday wear extremely well.

Furniture || Complement your upholstered furniture with a coffee table or accent tables. Weathered, distressed wood finishes help create a vintage vibe that works well with autumn hues. Your dining room and kitchen are easy rooms to update for fall. It can be as simple as adding a vase of dried flowers to your farmhouse sideboard or hutch. Though we usually picture classic fall colors in traditional dining rooms, they will work in contemporary settings, too.

Leather furniture is a great option for adding a cozy fall feel to any room. Leather sofas, sectionals, loveseats and chairs come in traditional and modern styles, often in luxurious earth tone colors like chestnut, burgundy, chocolate, terra cotta, and sienna. Upholstered leather bar stools add a cozy fall feel to a counter-height table in your dining space. They can work equally well placed around your game room pub table.

Area Rugs || An easy way to bring a mix of fall colors to your space is with an area rug. In addition to intricate patterns and colors, a rug provides warmth and comfort underfoot, and protects your floor. A rug will also help tie together many of the colors already featured in your room. It can act as a vibrant focal point or work as a comfortable neutral depending on your design style.

Accessories || To complete your warm and cozy fall space, take out your soft throws and drape them over your favorite accent chair. Layer plump toss pillows on your sofa, sectional or loveseat. Add potted or hanging plants, glowing candles and warm lighting for welcome ambiance. And, make your dining room more inviting with a beautiful centerpiece for your rustic dining table. Arrange pumpkins, gourds or pinecones in a bowl or on a tray for a bountiful fall look. Think of it as your own still life painting you’ll love to admire every time you enter the room.
