Get the Look: Scrolling Leaves Dining Room for Fall

Fall is in full swing with warm scents that linger on wandering breezes: caramel apples, woodsmoke, pumpkin pie, and spiced apple cider. Bring that warm, cozy atmosphere right into your home with the Scrolling Leaves Collection. Tantalizing aromas of scrumptious sweets blow across your tablescape, and airy window treatments draw your eye to the magnificent vision of fall’s radiance.

Embracing the splendor of the season, these table linens and window treatments will enhance your dining room with the allure of autumn’s palette.

Exquisitely embroidered in crisp colors and embellished with intricate cutwork, the Scrolling Leaves Accents show off your table’s rich hue or the splendid scenery outside your window. With a variety of styles and sizes to choose from, you can keep those lovely autumn shades around for the entire season. Accentuate decadent food with oblong tablecloths, table runners, placemats, or napkins. Invite nature’s beauty into your home with curtain pairs, tailored valances, swag valance pairs, or ascot valances.

Scrolling Leaves Dining Room

Alongside the harvest season’s delicious dishes and outdoor abundance, you won’t need much to complement these lovely table linens and window treatments. If you want to add another aspect of the season to your dining space, however, consider a hanging lamp, rug, or nature-inspired wall art.

Although the Scrolling Leaves Collection is stunning all on its own, it also lends itself to a variety of decorating styles. Fully embrace the season with other autumnal decor such as napkin rings or wood serving trays. Let your Tuscan and Italian side shine through with wine rack storage furniture or olive wall art. Embody all things natural with leafy wall toppers or centerpieces.

Fresh Farmhouse Decor for Fall

Pick your favorite pumpkin—and some farmhouse-friendly fall decor too!

Below are a few ways to give your home country flavor this autumn. With farmhouse decor, your style can be as relaxed and imperfect as you like; weathered surfaces and worn edges will only add to the charm of this decorating aesthetic.

  • Decorate with cozy plaids in orange and rust tones—think tier curtains, runners, and throws.
  • Fill a Mason jar with artificial sunflowers. Let the blossoms beam back from your kitchen table.
  • Let some potted hardy mums watch passersby from a spot on your porch.
  • Pop a pumpkin pillow with stitched detailing on your entryway bench or a comfy chair.
  • Adorn your space with home decor embellished with raffia, fringe, buttons, or burlap.
  • Look for kitchen towels or tabletop accents depicting vintage pickup trucks and produce.
  • “Plant” a couple scarecrow standers just inside your front door to welcome guests.

8 Creative Uses for Table Runners

The humble table runner can be the ultimate versatile piece for savvy decorators. Though it’s typically displayed length-wise across a dining table, a runner is not limited to a certain room or setting. If there’s a flat surface that needs dressing up, a table runner just might be the answer!

Here are a few ideas:

1. Embellish a vanity table
Feel all the more pampered when you sit at your vanity table. Drape an elegant runner across the vanity, and place your mirrored tray and accessories on top. Look for a runner that’s more ornate than usual, like one with lace or fringe.

2. Love the layered look
Let table runners decorate in tandem! Place a solid color runner down first, then top it with a narrower runner in an intricate design or an eye-catching print. If you’re feeling especially bold, try two contrasting prints; this approach works best if one pattern has a smaller scale than the other.

3. Glam up a bedside table
Give the top of your bedside table instant charm with an embroidered runner, candleholders, and a decorative jar. Or, if you prefer a more carefree vibe, select a Bohemian-style runner and top it with a small paper lantern.

4. Beautify a console table
Give a little life to a neglected console table with a pretty floral runner. Complete the look with tabletop accessories and wall art in similar colors.

5. Make an entertaining change
Keep a TV console or media cabinet from looking stark by softening it with a runner. A runner with cutwork edging provides a quaint touch, while a striking pattern amps up the drama.

6. Festoon the fireplace
Use a table runner as a mantel scarf. Evoke an elegant, vintage ambience with classy candleholders, faux flower bouquets, and blossom wall art. This solution is great for holiday decorating too—a specialty runner atop the mantel is the perfect place to put all those seasonal baubles and figurines.

7. Change your perspective
Instead of placing the runner down the length of a dining room table, turn it so it drapes across the width. Add multiples if it works with your place settings.

8. Cozy up a coffee table
After you’ve piled decorative pillows and a throw on the sofa, the coffee table looks rather bare. Warm up the surface with a table runner; play with textures like cutwork, burlap, or macrame.

The Christmas tree:
A popular holiday song celebrates the loveliness of the Christmas tree’s branches, but you can give some decorating love to the base of the tree too. A buffalo plaid tree skirt looks wonderfully cozy encircling the foot of the tree. Decorate with pine cones, berry garland, and ornaments depicting deer or cardinals. Top the tree with a simple country star or a rustic angel embellished with faux fur.

Benches, chairs, and sofas:
Bare furnishings can seem chilly in the winter, so make them snuggle-ready with buffalo plaid throws and pillows. You can even layer the pillows atop your bed and drape a folded throw across the foot.
