A Harvest Hearth Awaits: How to Decorate Your Fireplace for Autumn

The fireplace is lavished with attention during the holiday season—bedecked with garland, twinkle lights, and stockings. Why not spend a little time making sure your harvest hearth is just as festive? Before long, everyone in your family will want to gather as the fall season reaches its peak beauty. You can almost smell the apple cider and (of course) pumpkin spice treats now!

Here are a few decorating tips for your fall fireplace:

  • Draw the eye upward with an autumn canvas placed above the mantel.
  • Add width to the wall display if needed by hanging a vibrant fall wreath on each side.
  • Top the mantel with a dimensional fall arrangement and figurines.
  • Bring interest to the fireplace base with a grand candelabra, pumpkins, and baskets.
  • Cozy up the space with an autumn area rug, fall decorative pillows, and soft throws.

Mix It Up! Chic Fall Entertaining with Mixed Materials

Decorating your fall kitchen is as simple as adding a little texture with mixed-material home decor: a wooden tray topped with homemade bread or decadent cheese adds warmth to the arrangement. Then, create a little contrast with fall table decorations fashioned from metal and glass. A metallic luster adds a bit of flash to your table, while glass allows you to show off the contents within, be it a bouquet of sunflowers or tiny rolls of colorful paper scrawled with all of your blessings.

Wondering just where you should start? On your countertops, a trio of fluted glass canisters adds a sweet note of simplicity. The whitewashed wood lids convey a kind of rustic charm; build on that with a vintage milk can that meshes metal with glass for a chic, mixed materials vibe.

Put your sideboard to good use and show off a wooden serving tray with a glass dome cloche. Gourmet crackers can be arranged to one side of the cloche, while the dome itself protects your fine cheese and only heightens the presentation. Easy Thanksgiving decorations might also include a decorative beverage dispenser for punch or apple cider.

Be sure to pay close attention to your fall tablescapes as well, whether this means the coffee table or the dining table. Metal candleholders with glass hurricanes could be just the thing to spice up your living room. The looped ring design in gold will assuredly catch eyes. Work in a sculptural branch, some acorns, and a smattering of fall leaves for a natural accent.

Or, let candleholders bring a metallic gleam to your dining table. You’ll want to pay special attention to this area of the home – it’s the crowning glory of your fall decorating! Incorporate a marbled-style texture with placemats resembling this cool, smooth stone. Topped with charger plates in gleaming gold, your placemats will combine with other mixed elements for a high-fashion fall look.

Color Feature: Decorating with Cinnabar in Your Home

We’re shining a spotlight on one of our favorite fall colors: cinnabar! This deep red-orange shade can be used all year long, but it’s fabulous in fall as a sophisticated alternative to pumpkin oranges and bright reds. Here are a few ways you can decorate with cinnabar in your home this autumn.

1. Pair solid-color cinnabar curtains with drapes in a compatible color like antique gold, bronze, beige, or brown. Complete the window treatment with matching waterfall valances, then use metal wall art panels at the sides to accent the arrangement in a symmetrical fashion. If you’re feeling adventurous, choose artwork with complementary color pops of golden orange, turquoise, or sage.

2. Drape a furnishing in a sunset-colored furniture protector to keep it looking great and brighten your living room for fall. Hang framed wall art prints in neutral tones over your loveseat or sofa to provide a polished look while keeping the attention on the beautiful sunset hue.

3. Layer European shams and decorative pillows in ember glow atop your bed to enhance the pattern colors and give your bedroom a luxe look. Place a sleek lamp with a clear glass font on your bedside table and hang a mirrored wall art piece above the headboard for sumptuous appeal.

4. Place plush, solid cinnabar mats on your bathroom floor for cushion underfoot, and choose a toilet lid cover in a matching color for a unified appearance. Then add your classiest bath furnishings in metallics or neutrals, or choose accessories in autumn tones for a full-out fall aesthetic.
