Fall is here!

Personal photo taken just outside of Boston

Autumn is my favorite season. Perhaps it is because of my East Coast upbringing, but there isn't one thing I don't love about the fall. I love the smells, the cool weather, sweaters and scarves, the comfort food, and of course the changing leaves. Just as any other season, autumn can be transformed into your home as well. The colors of browns, burnt orange, burnt red and gold can bring a warm palette through throw pillows, blankets and accessories. Tabletops, (more posts on this to come) mantles and doorsteps are the perfect canvas for festive decorations. And of course a pumpkin spice candle burning in the background sets a cozy mood.

Thomas Paul always has brilliant products to accessorize the home; such as this Artemis throw pillow in brown


paired with this pillow from Jayson Home & Garden

or the Blossom runner in Persimmon to liven up an entryway.

You can easily spray paint the pumpkins and change out the florals to the color

that works best for your space...vibrant red? chic white? gothic black?

I just loved the twist on color for this serving table:

With a neutral palette such a grey, drapery and floor lamps can easily be interchangeable for future seasons. I love the punch of gold to the already swanky room:

For a more traditional approach and shades of pumpkin:

Or add some moroccan spice paint and caramel ottoman as a more subtle approach in a modern room:

Our community is sponsoring an Oktoberfest Festival this Saturday, and I couldn't think of anything better to welcome this beautiful season! Happy Weekend!

  1. One day I hope to be rich enough that I can change out my accessories for the seasons! I love the fall!
