Autumn is one of our favorite seasons here on the coast. We savor the arrival of warm days, the cool, crisp nights and the deeper oceanic hues of fall lighting. You can bring autumn style to your clients’ homes with ideas that go beyond placing a typical pumpkin on their porch.
Hang art with the colors of fall. Deepen the effects of fall decorating by hanging art that boasts fall colors. It’ll look as if your home has embodied autumn from the outside in. Our coastal art galleries are loaded with beautiful beach photography and canvases shimmering with golden, rosy light.
Whip out serving platters. So much of our beautiful dishware and servingware is hidden away in upper cabinetry. Since this is the season for serving and gathering, bring them out front and center and use them to display gourds, autumn leaves and flower arrangements.
Make it multi-sensory. Holiday baking features fragrant spices like cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and other herbs. They’re colorful and smell amazing, so set them out in artistic displays.
A-typical pumpkins. If you prefer a more understated look, paint your pumpkins and gourds white, grey, cream or another muted tone. Perhaps one golden or orange globe can be left as an accent.
Don’t forget the floors. Use woven rugs to warm up the floor, both literally and figuratively. Cottage & Bungalow offers plenty of cotton woven rugs in rich autumn color combinations.
