It’s still pretty hot here in Austin, but here we are daydreaming about the cool weather that should be right around the corner. This autumn, I hope that the leaves turn their brightest, boldest colors and that the air will stay crisp and cool. Other than the weather, my very favorite thing about the fall is that the home becomes its most inviting all year. Maureen and I compiled these fall favorites for all you readers to get inspiration from when prepping you own home for the cozy season to come!
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.
