Fall-color-trends 1.) When decorating for fall, be sure take advantage of all of the colors on the fall palette: deep reds, warm browns, pale mauves, vibrant purples, and the more traditional orange and yellow shades of pumpkins and fall vegetables.

2.) To bring charm to your entryway add golden, red, and orange maple leaves to a plain wheat wreath for your front door and plant red and orange mums in outdoor planters.

3.) Set your table and spruce up your kitchen. Create a centerpiece out of small pumpkins, maple leaves, berries, feathers, and seed pods.

4.) Use strategic fall accessories to bring elegance to each room. Place autumn berry vines in the window sills, and autumn colored throw pillows and blankets on the couch.Colorful candles, simple pictures, and wooden pumpkins give your living space a charming feel.

To create a warm, cozy feel, decorate with a few wooden furniture accents that complement the couch such as a coffee table and end tables. Only use three or four pieces in your living area to avoid clutter and keep the look contemporary. (Pictured - Bilbao from Weiman)

6.) Don’t forget candles! Carve out the center of fruits and vegetables such as apples and pumpkins to create votive holders, and use larger pumpkins for pillar candle holders. Even when not lit candles bring warmth and beauty in their season’s colors. Fall-fruit-sculpture

7.) Tuck small pumpkins, Indian corn, and apples into corners of vanities in the bathrooms and bedside tables.

8.) Tie your fall décor together by making your home smell like fall. Boil three cups of water, and reduce to a simmer. Add four cinnamon sticks, one teaspoon vanilla extract, two teaspoons of ground cinnamon, half a teaspoon of nutmeg and slices of oranges and apples. Allow to steep for thirty minutes, remove from heat, and let the fragrance fill the air!

I love fall especially when the golden brown colored leaves start to fall on my backyard and me and my siblings start collecting them. But the best part of the fall is the relaxing colors that it can give the house.
