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.

Lovely Decor in Coral Inspired by the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year

The color experts at Pantone have unveiled the Color of the Year for 2019: Living Coral! This cheery, vivid coral has a golden undertone, making it both joyful and comforting. According to Pantone, Living Coral reflects optimism and playful expression.

How will you infuse your home with the color coral? Naturally, coral can be used to punch up any coastal decorating aesthetic, and it will certainly pop among cool blues and whitewashed hues. If you’re looking forward to spring, seek out floral and butterfly decor in coral tones. Of course, you needn’t adhere to a decorating theme; decorative pillows in coral can provide that desired energizing effect, and if you’re feeling especially bold, let coral curtains amp up a neglected window.

We’ve selected a few home decor items that have coral hues ranging from soft coral pink to deep reddish coral. Click on each image to learn about the item shown.

Decorating with Poinsettias: Holiday Living Room

Is your holiday decor looking a little humdrum this year? Let poinsettia accents flourish anywhere your home needs a decorative boost! With their saturated, showy red bracts, poinsettias are just the thing to perk up a floor, furnishing, or window. Decorating with poinsettia accents allows you to bring a cohesive element to your room while still giving you the flexibility to mix and match a variety of items.

For this holiday living room, we started with five larger pieces that would set the stage for all kinds of accessories to be added afterward. We used the following:

  • a full, coordinating window treatment (curtains with tiebacks and a matching valance)
  • a tall, flat-back tree that could be pushed close to the wall (decorated with faux poinsettias, of course)
  • a grand wall mirror set (central mirror and two grille-style sides)
  • a decorative stained glass fireplace screen
  • a statement rug (a poinsettia runner with shaped edges)

From here, we simply embellished the room with smaller poinsettia accents or glimmering accessories:

  • two different holiday throw pillows nestled together on a loveseat
  • a trio of glittering red wire tree accents grouped on the floor
  • a ribbon-and-greenery garland placed across the mantel
  • a pre-lit poinsettia wreath hung over the fireplace
  • an angel topper with poinsettias displayed atop the tree

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.
