When the weather gets chilly and I need entertaining and dining room inspiration, I turn to my favorite hobby: baking! Not only do I like an excuse to look at photos of ooey-gooey treats, I love to get inspired by the colors, textures, and feelings that autumn flavors suggest. For me, fall is about comfort, warmth, and family and friends gathering together.
So naturally I jump on the chance to create entertaining and dining room decor vignettes that encourage successful get-togethers. Whether you're planning a boisterous pancake brunch or a quiet tea for two, starting with a favorite recipe is an unexpected yet surprisingly effective way to focus on selecting a few key pieces. Above, the crisp, pale flesh of apples is reflected in the rustic tones of linen cushions and ash, whereas below the bright hues of pumpkin are echoed in ikat pillows and acacia. Can't you just smell the cinnamon in the air?
