Musings from Plüsch Decor » autumn
With a crisp turn of winds, Fall has officially fallen! As October marks the beginning of Autumn, we decided to help you get a seasonal makeover for your home. When we think of fall, we get these warm and cosy images of beautiful porches, with pumpkins and of course Halloween! But when you think of Fall and home décor, what pops into your head?
Here are a few things that pop into our heads when we think of Fall home decor.
The colours associated with Fall are supposed to be cosy and rich in tone. They reflect the seasonal change of natural life around, and add the right amount of warmth to your home. Shades of Orange and rich Reds are most definitely in! Along with them, it’s safe to also explore some daring colours like Mustard, Terracotta, Butternut, and Coffee! Prussian blue is the trump card (the only one worth using!) that can completely add a royal touch to the shade cards you’re already playing with.
Fall is all about bringing the rustic into the house. A good mix and match of potpourri on display is one of the best ways of commemorating the change of season. Use elements from the season- twigs, leaves, nuts- to effectively channel the feel of Fall. A good potpourri is not only aesthetic to look at but also gives out a beautiful fragrance. Add spices like Nutmeg, Clove, Cinnamon into your potpourri to bring out the smell of Fall. Dried Orange peel is one of the best additions to your potpourri this season.
We’ve told this time and again, playing with lights in your home always changes the tone of warmth required. Candles are big this season. Ditch the artificial lights, bring out the beautiful candle holders or baskets and deck up your home with a wide array of candles. Spice-fragrant candles are of course the number one choice. Also go for coloured candles, to add the right touch of aesthetic drama. The candles can adorn your mantels and corners with ease and charm, undoubtedly.
The change of season demands a change of upholstery around the house. Fall signifies the homecoming of Winter. Hence, while choosing fabrics for your upholstery, that’s the number one pointer to be kept in mind. Faux fur is one of the most quirky additions this season, which can work on your rugs and carpets. The other big fabric to do up your home with is plaid linens. Plaid can work on your curtains, cushions or even your couch depending on its tonality. Always go with the sombre tones of plaid for Fall.
This Fall, work on an extravagant yet simplistic centrepiece to completely level up on your home décor game. A Fall centrepiece most definitely includes everything natural- Candles, Seasonal Leaves, Exquisite wreathes, Seasonal fruits in a basket, Hay- they can all be decked up around your mantel or front porch or even your living space in the most rustic fashion. The use of Pumpkins and Lanterns adds to the drama in the most autumnal fashion imaginable!
