Yes, I know it’s over a month away until the official start of Autumn (Wednesday, September 23rd to be exact), but good design takes time to plan and execute. So I encourage you to start thinking about your fall seasonal decor now. I have some favorite accessories to share with you. I really think the whole “orange” accent color can be taken too far for this season, so I like to add some navy blue and wood tones to pare it down – and not feel like anybody is living in a pumpkin patch.
All images have the link back to the source, so just click on the pretty and whip out your credit card.
Let’s start with pillows. These are an easy accessory to switch out seasonally – and if you get a good pillow insert, you can just switch the cover. Check out this beauty from West Elm:
And I would love to put this furry little pillow love with the navy, to continue an autumn feel:
And because you can’t leave orange out altogether, this throw would be a delicious complement. Plus it’s named “Sweet Potato” and I love sweet potatoes.
I love the burnished finish on this mustang sculpture. Be sure you click through to the site and read about how this (and other) pieces came to be and are hand sculptured.
I am in love with Grapewood branches. And returning to West Elm, here is a very affordable option.
You can leave the grapewood “naked” or place 1, 2, or 3 of these succulent balls in the branches to dress it up a little. I love succulents year ’round!
A good tray is useful year round too, so I like to switch mine out seasonally to coordinate the colors. These trays corral magazines, your cocktail table decor, bar decor & bottles, nightstand pretties, and so forth. This orange one from ZGallerie is a steal. Plus, the orange is a little muddied in color, so won’t blind you when you walk into any room it sits in.
Are you ready for the best shopping deal I have seen in AGES? This X-Base stool from Target is a smoking hot $70. I would totally get two of these and the places they can go are numerable: under a console or sofa table, at the end of a bed, in front of a fireplace, oh the options! (And if The Handsome Hubs is reading this post, um, you may be finding these in our casa soon.)
And finally, adding a signature scent is key for the season as well. I have some custom orange-vanilla candles that I give to my clients, but Pier 1 also has some delicious fragrances.
So what do you think? Is this autumn-y enough for you? Or do you need more orange tones to feel like it’s really the fall season? Let me know below – I would love to hear from you! And head on over to my Autumn Pinterest Board for more ideas and inspiration!
