Seasonal changes don’t just happen outside. Bringing the newest season indoors is a quarterly decorating task. Fall is a short season. The sooner you begin to embrace it the longer you’ll have to enjoy its warmth and cozy appeal.

This season’s biggest color is classic camel. Whether your décor is black and white or pastels, you’ll find this delicious color goes with everything. From accessories to furniture you can find just the right touches to transform your décor from summer to autumn.

The biggest investment is furniture. If you are already considering the purchase of a new sofa or occasional chair, give serious thought to camel leather. It works great year around. In warmer seasons add pops of white and cream in throws or pillows to give it a cooler appearance.

Four Hands has a wide selection of new camel furniture pieces. For large scale spaces consider the 84” Emery Mid-century styled sofa. The top-grain leather couch has tailored lines and slim antique brass legs. Smaller sized living rooms will benefit from the 75” classic tufted Williams Leather Sofa.

Smaller budget, consider a new occasional chair. The timeless style of the Silas chair by Four Hands fits with any décor. Top-grain leather and a natural ash wood frame and parachute strapping is right on point with today’s “strappy styles”.

Need a rug and love the contemporary art movement? Then check out Crate and Barrel’s striking Hendrix, New Zealand wool, hand-tufted rug. It’s warm peachy, orange shades work beautifully with pinks, reds and earth tones. A mellow way to bring fall into your décor.

New accessories combined with existing ones can help you embrace the fall season without breaking your budget. You know I’m a huge fan of using what you have and updating it with some new touches. Look around. Perhaps just a few innovative pieces are all you need

We do more indoor entertaining this time of the year. Try updating your table with new dinnerware. If you are like most homeowners your dishes are almost vintage, time to redo. Crate and Barrel’s fresh 18th Street Dinnerware is a fun mix and match way to embrace the fall season. The rich brown and warm cream pottery is sold in sets or individual pieces. Prices range between $9.95 – $154.95.

cozy throws
Don’t forget to load up on cozy throws for those chilly fall evenings. Throws by Crate and Barrel.

Don’t overlook those sofa pillows. Replace summer ones with fresh fall tones. Metallics are a hot trend, so embrace coppery, bronze splashes of color. The Renato Pillow Arrangement by Crate and Barrel uses copper metallic embroidery to bring a bright warm glow to your sofa and chairs.

Terracotta
Refresh your tableware with new dishes from Crate and Barrel’s 18th Street Collection.

Terracotta and wood are two of my favorite fall touches. A wooden dough bowl filled with sand and an assortment of tower candles create an easy centerpiece that last to New Years. You can place it on a breakfront, coffee table, kitchen island or the dining table. Easier? Just load it with pinecones.

Small ceramic vases in terracotta, cream, brown or gold filled with mums, dried berries or other fall florals can transform your fireplace mantel or shelving. It doesn’t take large overwhelming accessories to help embrace the fall season. When planning your seasonal décor think color, texture, nature and warmth.
