It's that time of the year - the leaves are starting to turn and you might even catch the smell of fall in the air. That can mean only one thing: It's time for autumn decor.
Don't get us wrong, there's still plenty of time to experiment and revel in the joys of summer pigments, but if you're itching for a change in scenery then it may be time to give your rooms a fresh coat of paint. If paint isn't what you're looking for, switch out your blinds and shades and other room accents instead.
As always, earthy hues are the pinnacle of fall interior design. Rich brown, burnt orange and crisp olive always mark the season, but this year, try tempering it with slate instead of cream. Ditch Thanksgiving in the countryside, and try turkey day in the city on for size. And even though gray is reminiscent of the concrete jungle, it can also be a way to add a primitive feel to the area. Think cobblestones and blacksmiths and use your imagination in your decor.
Deep jewel tones are a great way to bring autumn into your home. If you don't feel like giving the living room the complete royal treatment with lush plum, dark teal and emerald green, just try painting the walls a few shades darker than what they are. It'll match your color scheme while still making the space feel brand new. If you need to venture from your palette, taking even a few steps in a different direction but within the same color can do wonders, and make your home feel cozier in the frosty fall.
