Rustic Fall Elements

fallelements

Fall is in full swing! Which means switching from summer barbeques to gatherings around the table for some spiced apple cider and a taste of Autumn harvest. When I think of Autumn, I immediately gravitate towards rustic elements with an organic touch. I love creating a table scape with items of form and function, as well as items that easily transition into the next season. Here are some ideas:

1. Neutral colored pumpkins translate the aesthetic of fall without being “too” focused on Halloween.

2. Leafy herbs are aromatic and make for beautiful centerpieces that never go to waste. The beauty of such tasty and organic centerpieces not only bring life to a table, but also brings flavor to our plates. I like it when decor can later end up potted in a garden versus stashed in my storage closet.

3. Wooden blocks add a great rustic element and can be used for anything, from staging a beautiful cheese plate to being used as a cutting board. Lastly, re-cycling wine bottles into candle holders creates an intimate ambiance while bringing out the beautiful, rich colors of fall.

So whether you’re gathering ideas for a pumpkin carving party or a Thanksgiving dinner, consider the rustic elements of what we love so much about this time of year.

About Charmie Stryker

Yes, Charmie is my real name. I’ve recently left the sunny land of Austin and is currently freelancing as an expat in Thailand. I'm currently soaking in the amazing culture and the design aesthetic that comes with it. An eclectic nature at heart, I gravitate towards patterns and pieces that tells a story of a well traveled home. From the traditional art of wood carving to the meticulous weavings in fabric, these are influences go past the suitcase and into my design.
