There is something magical when fall leaves turn such vibrant shades of reds, oranges, and golds. I love fall in the Midwest, but I haven't embraced bringing those colors inside our home. Instead, I like to approach fall decor with a more subtle, softer nod.
I was up north this past week and enjoyed changing out our more vivid summer accents for some fresh and understated fall design elements.
Meanwhile, pale green grasses and ivory candles say fall in the living room,
and cotton bolls in a twine-wrapped bottle make an easy nod to cooler days in any casual
corner of the house.
I put ours in the laundry room.
Textures and heavier fabrics are another quiet but effective way of embracing
a fall feeling in your home.
I layer the chairs and sofas with blankets and
for the past two years, I have looked forward to pulling out these wonderfully cozy
brown nubby pillows.
It wasn't really intentional, but I like how they repeat the brown of the ottoman.
I have always thought it is fun to change up our Iowa home with small seasonal accents and I knew I could do more than garlands of fall leaves. Autumn's colors are much more varied than that. Think of softer shades of golds, greens, and reds. Don't want color? Bring on the neutrals and enjoy your personal style salute to fall.
