Autumn Colors, Designs, and Flowers

Now that fall is here, it’s time to change up your décor.  The bright, cheery decorations, pillows, wreaths, and other items of summer just don’t look quite right in this chilly weather.  instead, you’ll want to go with some amazing fall colors.  What does this mean?  It means red, yellow, orange, and brown!  But not incredibly bright shades.  Instead, you’ll want darker reds, golden yellows, and bold oranges.  You can accent these colors with some dark green, purple, and even a little bit of dark blue, although you have to be sure you mix these colors together correctly or it might look odd.

One thing to remember is that you don’t have to remove all of your summer decorations.  You might be able to mix in a few of them, such as your red candles or some of your yellow throw pillows.  They will help brighten up your darker fall décor, and they’ll really stand out in amongst the bolder autumn colors.

For decorations, you’ll want to put out a new tablecloth, some new placemats, and a new table runner.  You’ll also want to put out a new centerpiece on your table and maybe some new flowers or an arrangement of fall items on your end table.  You don’t have to stick to just flowers for these arrangements.  You can add some gourds and pumpkins, some fall leaves and branches, or some pinecones.  Imagine a small vase of sunflowers surrounded by pinecones and leaves.  Think outside the box during the fall and use a few things from outdoors in addition to items you buy.

Naturally, you will want a few fall flowers in your decorations.  Think red, orange, and yellow, like sunflowers, orange roses, and some gerberas.  A few daisies and tulips work well as accent flowers, and green plants also look very nice.
