Autumn interiors can be interpreted in many ways. Some of the more obvious looks include orange-colored everything, leaves scattered about and pumpkin spice candles on tabletops. But, there are other unique fall home decorating ideas that are less literal and that look terribly chic. I was inspired by some images I found on the blog Belgian Pearls that made me think about autumn interiors in a more organic way.
The fall seems to be a time when we welcome natural and organic items into our home such as gourds, wood for fires and fruit for cooking. I love how these images highlight natural decor such as linen, roughhewn earthenware and woods. A cozy fire or soft lighting from traditional table lamps can round out the look. Even something as simple as a spool of thread, artfully displayed, can become a work of art and add a unique touch to your fall home decor.
Speaking of fires, make sure your autumn home has ample wood storage. Whether it’s a basket, a canvas carrier or metal caddy.
The natural autumn home should also have pale, soft furnishings like pillows, throws and bedding in cream, gray and subtle plaids. This color palette is a great transition from pale summer colors like watery blues! Additionally, elegant light fixtures above the nightstands will compliment the fall bed.
