Fall is definitely my favorite time of year. I look forward to decorating for fall almost as much as I do Christmas! And nothing makes me happier than incorporating things from nature to usher in the season. I naturally gravitate to a more neutral fall palette. As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of the bright oranges and rusts, haha! I like to do a more muted and pared down version of fall. And one of the easiest ways to do that is to incorporate items from nature as part of your seasonal decorating. With fall decorating, a little goes a long way. You don’t need 85 pumpkins on the porch with bales of hay! I sometimes think Pinterest has made us all think we need to go all-out with our seasonal decorating, but I disagree. Just a touch of the season brought in through nature says fall in a subtle way, and reminds us to slow down and enjoy the season we’re in!
Today’s post continues with more fall decorating, and as I did with my kitchen and mantel, I’m keeping it simple and subtle. This year I’m very into the faded versions of fall colors. Blush, faded greens and rusts, and some cream create a more subdued version of fall that really works for me right now. These are traditional fall colors, but in more muted and slightly toned down shades. This subtle fall decorating feels as seasonal as the brighter versions, and I love how soft and cozy it feels!
I am so thrilled to be joining a fabulous fall blog hop put on by my very talented friend Kristen of Ella Claire. Today I’ll be sharing my fall family room all wrapped up in it’s warm colors of fall!
Much like I did with the living room mantel I shared last week, I went with what I consider to be traditional fall colors, but in more muted and slightly toned down shades. I love that the colors make the house feel cozy and warm, yet they are subtle enough to work in my mostly neutral house.
