Color Your Home with the Shades of Fall

Looking out my window today I noticed the trees – the leaves are a riot of different shades of reds, from deep burgundy to fire engine red. Ditto for the trees whose leaves turn yellow; gold, butter yellow, soft lemon and flame orange. Fall colors are everywhere, bringing with it a wealth of tones and shades. Here are a few simple ways to bring the colors of fall into the rooms of your home.

Bring Fall Colors into the Living Room


The living room is where you relax; spend time with your partner; watch TV with the kids or just sit and do nothing for six seconds before you have to make supper. This is the one room in your home that will benefit the most from a pick-me-up of fall colors. Give the room an inviting feel with lots of pillows, a cozy throw or an accent rug in a warm autumn palette.

Bring Fall Colors into the Dining Room

Change the look of your dining chairs to match the season by adding chair covers in oranges or deep reds for a bold  statement or rich neutral colors like taupe, light brown or gray.

Create a centerpiece from found objects straight from nature or place a vase of seasonal flowers like chrysanthemums or carnations in the center of your dining table.

Dressing your dining table with table linens in reds, browns or yellows is an inexpensive way to color your dining room in autumn. The richly toned Daniadown Sateen Turkish Red Tablecloth is a perfect example.

Bring Fall Colors into the Bedroom

Bringing autumn from the outdoors into the bedroom adds a naturalistic element to the place most of us think of as a sanctuary after a tiring day. Mixing rusts and soft greens introduces a calming aspect to the room. Oranges and blues with warm undertones give the room punches of color. Medium to dark browns, especially a comforter or duvet, are particularly soothing.
