Layla Palmer of The Lettered Cottage dressed up her bookshelf with foliage and pumpkins. The bold orange color really stands out against the white bookshelf, so no other decor is needed. Layla placed pressed leaves inside a frame for added effect.
Wrapping sweater remnants around a candle brings warmth and comfort to your home. Camilla stuck a leaf in the sweater scraps to add texture and bring a touch of nature indoors. These candles work well as decor or as a hostess gift.
Wheat Drink Stirs
Apple cider, a fall staple, is the perfect drink to serve during your fall get-together. To give a nod to the fall-inspired drink, Camilla tied a wheat seed head to the end of a chopstick and skewered pieces of apple for a flavorful twist.
A white chalkboard brings texture while keeping your living space light and airy. Alicia of Thrifty and Chic made the chalkboard using plywood and reclaimed wood for a rustic look. Spray-painting pumpkins in metallic colors brings in a natural element while adding some shine. Other natural objects, such as deer antlers and pinecones, ground the space.
Camilla Fabbri covered basic candles with cornhusks and adorned them with black feathers for an instant way to bring a fall look to her living room. She carried the look to the fireplace, where she hung a cornhusk garland. Green apples and wooden acorns complete the look.
Even though harvest decor is normally associated with a rustic design scheme, it can still bring elegance to your home. Beth Hunter of Home Stories A to Z displayed chic white pumpkins at varying heights for visual interest. She staggered the pumpkins by placing some on a stack of old books and vintage scales.
Old Book Pages
If you like the look of nature in your home — but can't handle the allergies — then use paper instead. Julie Ryan of Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss made a wreath using old book pages. To enhance the theme, she hung a leaf-shaped garland made with book pages and covered old books with black cardstock written on with chalkboard pen.
To add a fall look to a kitchen, Liz Regalado of Savvy Seasons suggests placing wood acorns in a cake platter for a simple decor idea. The acorns can act as a centerpiece for a dining table or as an accent piece on a kitchen countertop.
You don't have to go over the top to bring a fall-inspired look to your interior space. Alicia decorated her rustic dining table by placing pumpkins and gourds in a row. A tall vase filled with wheat sits in the center, adding height to the space.
Camilla suggests saving the seeds next time you cook with squash to use to accent candles. To get the rich, blackened look, clean the seeds and bake them for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F.
Camilla found great use for an old toolbox by filling it up with pinecones, candles and clementines. This one-of-a-kind candleholder is a great way to warm up any room in your home.
Alicia surrounded a metallic pumpkin with deer antlers for an easy way to add characteristics of fall to her living space. She spray-painted the coffee table and pumpkins similar colors to simplify the look.
