The Colors of Autumn
Welcome Back Blog Readers,
Bright, rich colors are the hallmark of autumn. Your home should showcase the season with cozy pillows, warm window treatments, and decorative wallpaper. They create a sense of contentment and peace, reflecting that change of year into a time that we spend with friends and family.
The rich tones for autumn are bold reds, deep golds, and vibrant oranges. Incorporate these colors in soft but affecting ways, such as pairing a brightly patterned throw pillow against a warm leather armchair or sofa. Change out the lightweight fabrics of your window treatments for thick, soft brocades; pair them with cream-colored sheers to offset the darker tones and provide a welcoming atmosphere.
For your wallpaper, choose textures and patterns that will last you through autumn and into winter, but make sure that it gives you that relaxed, happy feeling associated with the colder seasons. Choose something simple but bold, that will make a statement but not overwhelm your home. Contrast reds with golds for a brilliant color scheme to bring the illusion of deep, warm autumn sunlight into your home.
It’s time to get ready for the end of the year, and the best way is to prepare your home to welcome friends and family. So come in, check out the latest wallcovering and fabric collections! And, as I always say, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”
