It’s that time of year where all the fall decorations are out in store and maybe even some Christmas decor. In our personal opinion, we think it might be too early to shop for winter holiday decorations. We think fall inspired decor deserves our full attention for all the fall color pops out in nature or however we want to incorporate it in our homes.
In the spirit of fall decor and the joys that come with this season, grab a cup of cocoa and check out some of our fall styling ideas and tips that we have for you. These tips are unique and may even make fall decorating easier with some of your existing decor.
Tip: Embrace Yellow
If you have seen some types of birch, aspen, or poplar trees around during early and mid autumn, you will have noticed the bold and vibrant yellow that gradually turns into a mustard yellow as the season progresses. Bold yellows or mustard yellows can be both year round colors or easily perfect fall leaves inspired decor.
Tip: Teal For a More Eclectic Fall Color Palette
Many don’t identify shades of blues or greens with fall. However, teal is the ultimate complimentary color for most traditional fall colors like yellows, oranges, browns, beiges, or other neutrals. Blue and white fall decor has definitely been trending as of late, but try testing out teal and white or teal and natural wood and earthy tones for a more eclectic or even moody feel.
Tip: Save Yourself Some Decoration Storage Space
Decorate your fall centerpieces, fall mantelpieces, and fall sideboards or consoles with some of the existing decor pieces you already own. Alternatively, invest in pieces that you can use and move around your home year around. Try woven decorative table runners, natural wood trays, rattan chargers, or our favorite earthy stoneware vases to start. Then you can add classic mini pumpkins from your local farmers market or grocery store or dried natural florals to make a perfect fall touch. This way, you don’t have to store additional decorative accents and you end up spending less in the long run as seasonal decor trends change every year.
Tip: Take Advantage of Pops of Color
If you are one of the many that decorate using primarily neutral color schemes, here is your chance to safely add a color pop to your interior aesthetic without too much commitment. Seasonal decor, especially fall inspired decor, is a great time to introduce jewel tone colors like teal, navy, burgundy, and burnt orange or amber. You could consider going with bold and eclectic colors like mustard yellow, orange, bright blues, or even black. Regardless there is no commitment and you can switch it out once December is here. Or keep the pops of color around, we would encourage that, especially if you’re like us based here in Seattle where the weather stays pretty gray for a few more months.
