September is just around the corner which means the weather will be cool and crisp very soon. Fall is the season when warm tones and textures are present in nature, so it makes sense to consider the same aesthetic in your home decor too.
Combine earth tones in shades of mocha, burnt orange, walnut, and charcoal gray for an enveloping space that welcomes you at day’s end. Get the look of this corner nook designed by Philip Gorrivan by installing richly textured grasscloth wallpaper on the walls and layering the space with wood accents, upholstered furniture pieces, and elegant light fixtures.

Botanical prints and wallpapers in neutral shades add an air of sophistication. Welcome contrast into a room with dark stained woods coupled with light upholstered pieces. Warm metallics such as antique brass and gold leaf play a role in a space layered with comforting earth tones. Yet another organic layer to consider is mineral or rock; introduce it with your lighting choice in a lamp that showcases the beauty of a centuries old stone such as marble.

The bedroom is a space that should envelop you with its serenity and comfort. Warm tones and dark woods together can lean masculine, so balance them with white linens and fresh flowers. To recreate a similar space, combine textural grasscloth wallpaper, an upholstered bed frame, a classic pedestal end table, elegant black and white art prints, earth tone botanical pillows, and a traditional table lamp.

Earth tones are comforting because they remind us of what we see when we venture into the great outdoors, from stunning rock cliffs to verdant forests. Welcoming warm tones and textures into your home decor will make it feel layered over time and ultimately a place where you seek relaxation for hours on end.
