Wake up to autumn in your bedroom, or bring some fall flair to your dining area! These nature-inspired home accents can be used all year long to infuse your decor with earthy elements, but they’ll be most appropriate during the autumn season. Dappled leaf designs mingle with warm hues and neutral shades for a gorgeous effect.
Are you looking for a unique take on autumn home decor? Try contemporary furnishings in warm, metallic shades! Gilded shades of aged gold, bronze, and copper provide a sophisticated alternative to those ubiquitous fiery reds and oranges found in fall decorating. Here are just a few ideas on how to infuse your room with modern verve and metallic hues:
Select a bold geometric rug with an avant-garde, art deco flair to provide the foundation.
Choose complementary window treatments that utilize similar shades.
Protect furnishings with solid-color covers to break up the striking patterns found in the room.
Illuminate the posh setting with a multi-arm floor lamp finished in a metallic tone.
Accessorize with shimmering throw pillows, an abstract sculpture, or a pair of sleek metal sconces.

Is that solid color furniture protector looking a little drab and worn? The Riverpark Furniture Cover would be an excellent replacement, featuring a colorful stripe pattern and reversible material.
This striped furniture cover provides you with two looks in one. Display the stripes in warm, earthy hues, or flip the cover over to show stripes in shades of green and brown. The nature-inspired color palette is perfect for late summer and autumn—or all year round, if you choose.
The channel-quilted, brushed polyester microfiber furniture cover has a divided side pocket for your accessories (and the reverse does too). All sizes except the recliner cover have straps with D-rings, so you can keep the furniture protector in place. Cover your recliner, wing chair, loveseat, or sofa, and simply remove the protector for washing when it collects too much pet hair or dirt.

What sort of ambience will your fall table have this year? There’s always the cheery atmosphere cultivated by decorating with autumn’s warm, fiery tones; or the sophisticated aura that seems to radiate from gleaming metallics. But if you’re looking for a casual, homespun feel, opt for a subdued palette of neutrals with a few flickers of accent color. Muted tones like straw, cream, khaki, tawny, brown, and espresso play nicely with ember glow, vermillion, gold, sage, chartreuse, or dusty teal.
Next, decorate that table! Look for aged ceramic pitchers and vessels to place on top, as well as faux leaf sprays or grapevine orbs. Select a woven basket and fill it with pine cones and artificial fall foliage for an effortless centerpiece. Or, nestle small pumpkins and gourds inside an openwork bowl. Complement your earthy accessories with dinnerware and napkins in understated colors.
Depending upon the number of dishes on your recipe list, fall gatherings can involve quit a bit of prep work. And then, of course, there’s the dreaded cleanup after the feast is over.
