Embody the Warmth of the Season with the Leafbrook Autumn Living Room

Leaves fall in an array of colors all around your sitting area when you decorate with inspiration from the Leafbrook Autumn Living Room. Assembled by our in-house designers, this living room setup embodies all things fall—colorful leaves, warm hues, and a cozy atmosphere.

The Leafbrook valances and pillows bring in autumnal accent hues with leaves and stripes in shades of deep sage, chocolate, and russet on camel backgrounds, accompanied by the sentiment “Follow Your Dreams.” Drift farther into the coziness of the season with the loden, autumn red, russet, espresso, and nutmeg leaves strewn across the Fall Reflections Rug. 

Light the space with the warm glow of leafy designs and nature-inspired wonder with the Darent Stained Glass Lamp, settled upon one of the light bronze Alco Nesting Tables. Finish off your space with a striking focal point. The Gentle Breeze Wall Art draws the eye with its metallic autumnal hues and dimensional design.

Evanston Patio

The best place to start is with a comfortable patio furniture set with a wicker-woven design. This set has a durable, powder-coated aluminum frame that resists rust, is UV-resistant, and is designed to be used outdoors year round. If you’re looking for additional seating comfort and a pop of color, add a pair of reversible chair cushions that are mildew-, weather-, fade-, and stain-resistant.

Every decorated space needs intrigue, dimension, and personalization, and wall décor is the perfect way to bring in all three. Light up late evenings with scrolling wall lanterns that can be used for design year round. Add a dash of personality with the scrolls and bronze hues of monogram wall art that’s UV-, weather-, and tarnish-resistant. This JasonW Studios® wall art is made in the USA and can be displayed outdoors year round.

You can even add style to your door! Hang summer on your door with sun-kissed yellow and white flowers on a floral wreath. Hang the wreath on a multilayered and two-toned hanger from JasonW Studios®. Made in the USA with a UV-, weather-, and tarnish-resistant design, this scrolling wreath hanger can be personalized with the first letter of your name.

Finish off the intimate atmosphere with water-repellant and fade-resistant tab-top curtain panels and elements of nature. Perch plants and statues atop column display pedestals that bring back the classic style of a bygone era and add another layer of intrigue to your newly-refurbished outdoor space.

Get the Look: Clearwater Coastal Living Room

Would you love for your living room to feel like a vacation spot? When you decorate with Clearwater home decor, you can almost hear the water rushing to the shore or the seagulls in the distance.

How did we create this look?

We used the Clearwater Reversible Striped Furniture Covers to protect the furnishings and set a cool, coastal vibe in the room. Furniture protectors are exclusive designs available only at Touch of Class®.

We tied the look together with the coordinating Clearwater Nautilus Rugs, Clearwater Window Treatments, and Clearwater Decorative Pillows.

We hung a canvas triptych over the sofa and decorated nearby walls with wooden seahorse art.

We placed a beachy console table by the recliner and topped it with a coastal centerpiece, seashell lamp, and striped wall clock.

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.

Exclusive Riverpark Striped Reversible Furniture Covers

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.

This reversible furniture cover is a Touch of Class® design exclusive, so you won’t find it anywhere else. Click here to view measurement information and to order this cover.
