There’s a definite nip in the air, and it arrived just in time for the first week of fall. I’m betting that it won’t even reach 70 degrees today, but that’s okay. It’s been a hot and humid summer, and I’m ready for open windows, cozy sweaters and cowboy boots!
Over the past years, I’ve used many color combinations in my fall decorating – pumpkin and eggplant, pumpkin and sage, and my favorite pumpkin and turquoise. While I love rich color, I decided to go with a more natural or tone-on-tone combo this year.
The great thing about this palate is that it can be used in any style of home - traditional, contemporary, country, and of course, farmhouse. Here is how I incorporated the tone-on-tone look into my home.
Texture plays a key role in my tablescape. A combination of linen, rattan, metals, and natural elements provides richness to the space.
Golden preserved leaves and amber glassware provide a subtle pop of color.
A birch bark pumpkin, embellished with pinecones, leaves and acorns, takes center stage on the dining table while resting atop an oversized sea grass charger.
A touch of whimsy is brought in with miniature ceramic owl salt and pepper shakers.
Napkin rings created from vintage metal buttons bring a sense of nostalgia to the table.
On the buffet, a chipped, concrete urn corrals white and green pumpkins and gourds.
Stacked single-hued dishes topped with white pumpkins add dramatic appeal.
Mini cotton topiaries provide natural texture while flanking each end of the dining table.
A simple white bowl is adorned with colorful mini pumpkins and natural Spanish moss.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Happy fall!
