Modern Americana

Celebrate the season with an all-American palette of red, white and blue that features a warm, autumnal twist. To add texture, layer bright reds and blues with tablecloths, napkins and placemats made of natural materials.

Elegant Earth Tones

Bring an organic touch to your harvest table by layering pumpkin and mustard tones. For a textural approach, mix in woven seagrass chargers or placemats underneath ceramic dinnerware.

Crisp and Clean

Sometimes the less-is-more approach is best. Choose one color and a mix of creamy neutrals, then add a simple, organic accent for a seasonal touch. Here, we used an oversized silk leaf as a charger to bring a graphic element to the ensemble.

Traditional With a Twist

Put a modern twist on traditional style with contrasting colors and classic patterns, like large-scale botanicals or florals. Finish the look with an antiqued turkey napkin holder that's perfectly in season.

Classic Blue and White

One of the most popular year-round color schemes for both decorating and entertaining is blue and white. Adapt this duo for your fall table by introducing brown accents through wooden chargers, vases or candleholders.

A Mix of Warm and Cool

Apply creative color contrast to your fall table with a mix of warm and cool hues. To avoid a summery look, stick with faded blues with gray or brown undertones. Here, we used warm shades of tan and cream for balance.

Neutral Metallic

Play with sheen by layering various metallic hues. While silver and gold tones are timeless and loved by all, shades of champagne and bronze feel a bit more unique and can take on a more masculine vibe.

Light and Bright

For an unexpected look this season, go against the grain with non-traditional fall colors. Mix various shades of blue and white, then add depth to the look with chargers, napkins and placemats made of organic materials, like woven seagrass.

Make It Monochromatic

Take a tone-on-tone approach to your fall table by layering shades of the same color. To keep the overall look from becoming flat, introduce a variety of materials through glassware, textiles, vases and chargers.
