Fall Decorating Inspiration

To me, fall decorating is scrumptious. Borrowing shades of brown found in bark and leaves, roasted meats and Indian pudding is a great jumping off point for cozy interiors. Additionally, fall fashion tends to influence how I see the fall-inspired interior. The tans and browns of handbags, attaché cases and gloves (or even a Patchwork Open End Leather Log Carrier!) control most of my waking hours! Yes, I admit that was a tad dramatic, but how can you not love the brisk call of fall?

I suppose incorporating brown into your decorating scheme need not be seasonal, but brown leather has such a "clubby" feel that I can’t help the association. From well-worn saddles to elegant English interiors, brown leather decorative items create a sense of old world elegance. You can also create a clubby vibe by using brown colored replacement shades on wall lights, sconces, and table lamps.

Interior inspirations can come from anywhere. From seasonal clothing to vintage bicycle seats, shades of brown translate beautifully into fall decorating ideas.
