Today, we plan to just sit back, relax, and let the colors of fall inspire us. Soon those colors will be all around, but until then, we can take a sneak peek at some wonderful decor ideas that bring autumnal delight right into our living rooms.
One of our favorites for fall is the classically named “Indian Summer” pattern. In mango and coral, and inspired by sari prints, this richly hued, hand-printed cotton is vibrant and natural all at once. Indian Summer curtains will instantly brighten your space, and remind you that warm fall sunshine can’t be too far off.
A global, organic style curtain rod or finial is a must with this soft fair trade curtain. I can’t help but love the little birdie perched atop the Hector finial, but ultimately, I am most drawn to the warm wood tones of World Market’s Nobel Rod. Mmmm… decisions, decisions! Which of the three do you like best?
Fall calls for cozy comfort, and what could be more comfortable than a scattering of plump throw pillows? Try solids in tangerine and chocolate, or add a layer of pattern with our own Spice Route euro sham.
Speaking of cozy, we have to have a heap of soft blankets stashed in our living room for those nights when cool weather edges in! Don’t you think there should be one for each person? Try these three out – in classic fall colors: rust, chocolate and wine. These solids will sing with Indian Summer. Beautiful!
For finishing touches, a bit of seasonal decor will tie your whole look together. I’m not huge on faux florals, but I have to admit – branches like these Faux Rose Hips from Pottery Barn are very realistic, and can be introduced year after year! I actually really love them.
We have to talk about our inspiration photo (up top, and again here…) – Indian Summer Paper Flower Bouquet. What a lovely piece of art! This amazing origami arrangement is made from book pages. Perfect for those of you who just can’t stop reading.
Finally, add a little hand-touched glow with a simple DIY leaf candle project from Martha Stewart. I know you can do this, and you’ll love the results!
Putting it All Together
By now, you may almost smell the apple pie baking and hear leaves crunching outside. We hope our fall festivities have inspired you! Enjoy a look at our Indian Summer Room – all together.
