We hear you. You love summer. We love summer, too, but our love for the balmy breeze and long days doesn’t keep the cosmos from doing its thing. Autumn is a beautiful season and we think more people need to get behind the majesty of the autumnal equinox.
The leaves are changing colors and your interior decor has a marvelous influence that doesn’t need a calendar. It’s time to decorate for fall and prepare your home for seasonal entertaining. How should you go about it? We thought you’d never ask.
Arguably the season that naturally boasts the most beautiful tapestry of colors is happening right in front of our eyes. The leaves turn deep red, golden, and burning orange, while the days get shorter. Tone down the brightness of summer with subtle, rich earth tones that sing in harmony with the soft colors of the season. Incorporating autumn colors in your interior decor builds an illusion of being outdoors while bringing the comforting warmth the fiery colored leaves so deceptively embody.
Americans are pretty set in their ways when it comes to their home’s look. About 44% prefer traditional, 22% like modern, 13% lean toward eclectic, 10% to country style, and a mere 2% for global inspiration. Subscribing to certain looks can be limiting, we think. Autumn calls for a certain embrace of naturally rustic motifs. We discussed color above, now it’s time to implement more accessories. Wood, burning candles, autumn fruits, and natural light are just some things that help speak the palette of the room and set a mood. Don’t be bound by classifications.
Area Rugs and Hardwood
Don’t forget your floors. Lots of people have lovely hardwoods that were born to emulate the fall season. Show them off. On top of that, earth-toned custom made area rugs strewn about the hardwood gives the floor even more personality, spreading splashes of color all while providing little islands to keep cool feet warm.
How you decorate your home is entirely up to you, but we’re mightily fond of following the seasonal influences. If you’re looking for some inspiration, we can help you out. It doesn’t matter if you want an outdoor rug, luxury rug, or a few custom cut rugs you’ve dreamed about, we’re happy to help. We want your home to be as cozy as possible as the days grow cooler.
