Bringing fall into your home:
The fall season makes the world come alive with beautiful, rich colors. Nature’s color palette during this season is striking with tones of red, orange, gold and brown. From the changing leaves to the hot chocolate we sip while sitting by a glowing fire, it’s hard not to be inspired by its natural beauty. Decor with fall colors can create a warm, inviting atmosphere that hugs you the moment you step foot in it. They evoke feelings of home, family, and being one with nature. This year consider decorating with fall colors to create a warm and cozy home you’ll want to nest in all winter long. There are 3 levels you can explore, depending on your time and budget:
Level 1 - Major Fall Decor changes:
- Paint the walls. Warm and neutral colors.
If we are planning on decorating the living room for the first time or want to spend some time and money, go big by painting the walls. You can choose traditional neutral colors such as sand, wheat, mustard, stone, or clay, which are just a few of the colors that blend harmoniously with most existing decor schemes. These colors also make rooms appear larger and more open.
Or you can opt for warm colors which make the room cozier and comfortable just right for this time of the year. Orange, plum and burgundy are the favorites for the fall time as they resemble the leaves falling all around. Don't be afraid of making the room too small, just create balance by painting only one or two of the walls with a warm color and the others with the neutral tones.
Level 2 - Medium Fall Decor Changes:
- Furniture in strong and powerful colors.
Rearranging furniture can be a fun way to play with the decor this fall. There are beautiful contrasts that can be created between the walls and furniture. Choosing a sofa that has one of the most powerful colors of the season, will immediately set a tone for the whole living room. Also, tables and chairs can be complement your decor style.
- Well-combined Cushions.
Changing the cushions and mixing some unicolored ones with printed pattern. Combining one of the strongest colors of the palette (dark lilac, plum, dark orange or curry) with two or three of the other colors such as ivory, white, light grey or an olive green will give you the feeling that a whole new space has been created.

Adding a blanket can also be a way of making the living room stand out in a very simple way. Choose one with powerful tones to combine with the neutral colors of the furniture and walls and you’ll end that with a space that looks more inviting and warm.
