Accessorizing for Fall
Have you gone outside recently and felt a little crispness in the air? How about the leaves on the trees? Have they begun to turn colors in your neck of the woods? Whether we like it or not, summer is blowing its last breath and fall is stepping around the corner. Personally, I love fall and everything it brings. The darker rich tones are a personal favorite and I love bringing fall inside with those colors through accessories.
Don’t think that fall accessories have to be red, orange, and yellow. Think antique gold, burnished pewter, and deep bronze to add a sophistication to a room.
Change bright colored objects for rich tones of deep walnut, dark cherry, or grey reclaimed wood that will give a space a sense of history.
Mix pieces that are clean and crisp with antique family heirlooms.
Cut some fall branches, rich berries, or decorative grasses from the yard and place them in one of grandpa’s old trophies, a tarnished mint julep cup, or a seeded glass jar.
So, bring on the fall and let her step inside your home a little! I promise, you will be glad she came for a visit.
