If you’re looking to make more of a drastic change in your home for this season, Pantone has recently released this year’s 10 colours for fall that are perfect for your walls or furniture. Of the ten, more natural tones such as “neutral grey”, “autumn maple” and “butterum” are ideal for a nature inspired home. However, if you’d like to create a little colour contrast in your décor, more vibrant colours such as; “ballet slipper” and “grenadine” are beautiful for accent pieces and accessories.

Leaves are typically the first thing that come to mind when you think of fall. The trees turning red, orange and yellow is the marker that the season has arrived. With such an abundance of them during fall, leaves are the perfect natural item for creative and festive decorations. They can be incorporated into wreathes, table settings, mantle decorations and even art work. Or if you find one you are particularly fond of you can press and frame it to hang on the wall.

The unique and beautiful colouring of birch trees makes them perfect for decorating. Logs and branches are ideal for decorating planters and help accentuate the rich colours of fall flowers. If you have a fireplace they also make stunning decorations for the mantle, as well as being decoratively stacked inside the fireplace, or used to create a centerpiece.

More of an antiquated décor element, dried corn can bring a classic feel to your front entrance. Better suited to outdoor designs, corn can be fairly messy but creates a beautiful rough and authentic look. Corn is a wonderful element to add to wreaths, hang against an exterior wall, or use to make planters look more full and lush.

Pinecones are the ultimate filler accessory as they can be scattered almost anywhere, for an authentic natural feel. Place a few along a book shelf for a subtle hint of fall, or incorporate them into your mantle decorations to make it look more full and rich. Or if you plan to make a DIY wreath, glue some on for more texture.

Pumpkins are a staple in fall décor, and because they come in an array of sizes, shapes and colours they are very versatile as décor. Pumpkins are amazing for creating stunning fall tablescapes and centerpieces, can be painted and carved or even hollowed out and turned into a flower pot. Pumpkins have come a long way since their initial jack-o-lantern beginnings and can now be used to decorate practically any space in your home.
