Posted by Barbara Haaksma on Aug 7, 2018 12:17:55 PM

Fall colors take shape in many memorable forms, from red and golden leaves to burnt orange pumpkins. One of our favorite places to explore with color in the fall is at home. With the fall season ahead of us, we’re exploring three simple design elements that make subtle seasonal statements.

Fall brings the opportunity for multi-functional design elements into the home, including layers of textiles that provide warmth and beauty. Incorporate the season’s rich tones with a light throw on the couch, decorative pillows, or complementary kitchen and bath linens. The kitchen table is a fitting medium to showcase botanical-inspired table linens or a vibrant centerpiece. In any space, the added texture of textiles lends to a warm, appealing feeling.

Chrysanthemums, known commonly as mums, are a quintessential nod to fall. Available in a variety of sizes and shades of red, orange, yellow, peach, and white, they illuminate porches and gardens with festive pops of color. For a year-round celebration of color, consider pansies — fall flowers that can bloom again in the spring.

For a practical refresh in the kitchen, switch out a set of plates for the fall. Consider deep, alluring tones like navy blue, burgundy, and elegant greens. PANTONE reports a "continued transition away from cyclical trends, and instead a strong focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure."
