Using Autumn Color in your Home

Do you still have bright, cheery summer colors in your house?  If so, it’s past time to move them out and bring in some autumn shades!  Dark reds, browns, oranges, and yellows are the colors of autumn, and these warm, earthy tones are exactly what a home needs to fit in with the season.  Here are some tips for bringing autumn colors into your house.

Select a nice autumn centerpiece.  This can be flowers, a cornucopia around Thanksgiving, some pumpkins and other squash, or a selection of autumn colored candles.  The table is the focal point of your dining room, and its centerpiece can really set the tone for the room.  You can also place smaller versions of these centerpieces on your entertainment center or on shelves around the house. 

Change out your throw pillows and blankets in the living room and other areas.  Even though you may have furniture that isn’t done in a fall color (a light blue sofa, for example), you can place brown throw pillows or afghans on it to add fall colors.  Just be sure to select a fall color that compliments the furniture (that blue sofa might look odd with yellow pillows, for example).

Likewise, you may want to add an autumn-colored bedspread and pillowcases to your bed.  While you might not want to completely redecorate your home for each season, this is a good way to bring autumn colors into the bedroom.  Like the dining room table, your bed is the focal point of the bedroom, so doing it up in autumn colors is a great way to really change the look of the room.

Finally, add a fall wreath to your front door.  This will be the first thing visitors see, and it will help set the color tone for your entire house.  Of course, there are many other ways of bringing autumn colors into your home.  Be creative and you’ll find many neat little ways of bringing these great shades into your house.
