At the first sign of cooler weather when there’s a slight nip in the air, thoughts often turn to inviting the lovely colors of fall into interior spaces. Decorating for fall can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. Here are five ways to infuse your rooms with foliage and flowers for fall:
Inspiration for fall decorating can come from all kinds of unexpected places. For example, take a closer look at your favorite artwork. Color inspiration from a painting, such as the beautiful contrast of light and dark elements below which might inspire a floral arrangement of creamy blooms and foliage that ranges from golden yellow to orange tones and then to dark hues of purple kale, eggplant, and red pear.
Fall foliage in all its glorious hues can make a big impact on the table for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Below, a large white vase of branches is carefully placed so as not to impede conversation at the table. The upholstered banquettes make for comfortable seating.
Sometimes, we think that we need a large arrangement of stunning blooms to make a big statement. A simple glass container filled with branches in fall colors can be just right for the entryway, dining room, or kitchen.
Welcome family and friends with the colors of autumn outside your front entry, inside in the foyer or both. Right now, before the holidays might be a good time to add those solar lights you’ve been considering lining the walkway to guide your guests to the front door. From fall wreaths on the door to colorful swags above, you’ll have fun decorating your entryway for fall. Faux potted trees like Japanese maples and topiaries made of fall foliage are also a great touch on either side of the door.
Nothing epitomizes fall in the United States better than the Thanksgiving tablescape. Go with the traditional look of a floral centerpiece surrounded by tiny pumpkins and set with your best dinnerware and crystal or add a twist like mismatched dishes, linens in the currently uber-popular buffalo check, or strings of mini lights entwined among your table decorations.
We hope you enjoy exploring ways to add touches of fall to your interior spaces with foliage, flowers, and more.
