Autumn/Fall Decorating Ideas

I love Autumn when all the trees start to change colour, the beautiful oranges, reds and russets are so inspiring as a colour palette. Why not bring the outdoors in with these great decorating ideas courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens?

1. Woodland Wonder

A bunch of orange/red roses gets a makeover by adding autumnal pieces such as acorns and some ferns as a contrast; cover your vase in a tree effect paper for more impact.

2. Chestnuts Roasting

Make a simple display by placing a candle in a bowl of chestnuts or other autumnal fruits and nuts.

3. Complementary Colours

Contrast autumn leaves with colours from the opposite side of the colour wheel: red, orange and yellow contrast well with blue, purple and green.

A simple wreath of leaves looks stunning suspended in the kitchen window.

5. Soft Furnishings

Autumn colours can be added in your soft furnishings by adding a few cushions and throws. This orange cushion takes centre stage on the cream chair.
