With autumn upon us, even if the temperature has only dipped a little, it’s time to start thinking about the fall decor for your homes in Chelsea AL. While you could go for the more obvious and sometimes kitschy fall decorations, why not consider looking more to your home’s actual decor, turning to paint, furnishings, fabric and art. These ideas may seem made for autumn, but they are elegant and stylish enough to suit your home all year long.
Whether it’s an entry foyer or a dining room, consider using a fall-themed wallpaper. Think of autumn colors, leaves, and branches, and look for elegant wallpaper designs with lighter golden backgrounds to keep it bright throughout the year, and with silvery and red branch and leaf patterns that add a more modern touch to the design. Using a lighter background keeps the paper appropriate throughout the year, but really brings in the coziness during the colder months.
To go all out, you could turn to the on-trend blend of rust-colored velvet sofas set against brownish bronze wall colors, with accents of gold and black in the rest of the furnishings and fixtures. Even if you don’t go with velvet, rich earthy-toned fabrics for the sofa really stand out against the darker wall, while still looking incredibly modern and stylish.
You don’t have to make such a big commitment, though. There are plenty of smaller ways to bring the season into your home. In your dining room, consider seasonally colored slip covers for your chairs. They can quickly and easily change the look and feel of the room and if your covers have ties on the back, consider tying in sprigs of dried herbs, or autumnal silk flower branches for an added touch.
Vases and bowls and what goes in them are integral to seasonal decorations. If you have a light-colored dining area, consider using darker tones in table decorations. An oversized dark bowl serves as a dramatic background for seasonal fruits and gourds. Frame the bowl with dark candlesticks and earth-toned candles.
If you have a fondness for vintage glassware, pull out your red and amber colored pieces for simple decorations on side tables and credenzas. Any orange and amber pieces will look particularly complementary against cooler blue tones you may have in your home interior. Also, don’t forget to make the most of vases. Use tall glass ones to hold bold plant branches, or use rounded earthy vases to hold a collection of loose, leafy greens that add a natural, organic feel to the setting.
Look for a blend of pillows, throws, candles, and art that aren’t necessarily found in the seasonal section, yet still create a sense of warmth and coziness. Bringing in earthy tones certainly makes the switch to autumn more obvious, but even rich creams in blankets for the sofa, especially in bold knits or plush fleece, add a real sense of warmth.
Of course, if your homes in Chelsea AL have comfortable front or back porch seating areas, make the most of the milder temperatures and get a fire pit. Then use some plush, rust or orange throw pillows on your outdoor seating (and have a basket inside to store them when not in use). Whether you go big or small, there are plenty of ways to bring autumn into your home decor without relying solely upon pumpkins, gourds, and the more obvious autumn paraphernalia. Think of ways to make it a part of your home’s interior design for a more sophisticated take on holiday decorating.Tags: homebuilder in chelsea al, new homes in Chelsea AL
