Forget About Boring Pumpkins and Gourds…Autumn Décor for 2010 is Fresh and Exciting
It doesn’t matter if you revel in the season or prefer to just let it drift on by with a friendly nod; there is autumn décor that is the perfect match to your home and your personality. We’ve checked out the hottest decorating trends for this fall season and included pictures and links so that your home can be the picture of the autumn spirit!
Autumn Colors for 2010
The colors for the fall season this year have stepped back to the basics of harvest splendor. The colors are richer and deeper in tone than in years past. Think of earthy gold tones, deep brown greens, and rust colored accents. Adding a touch of these to your home will instantly put you in the mood for the crisp fall season.
Autumn Fabrics for 2010
This year the fabrics for autumn are comforting. Soft chenille in fun fall shades, warm flannel appears in both standard bedding and decorative throws. Green is more than just a color this year as many manufacturers make the move to organic blends.
Autumn Accessories for 2010
The accents and accessories of this autumn season have moved beyond scarcrows to more elegant ways to show your fall spirit. While the traditional displays of gourds remain popular, autumn themed candle accessories allow you to spread your seasonal decorating throughout the house with minimal investment. Glass and mosaic designs in rich harvest tones seem to be the must have of the fall season.
Autumn Wreaths for 2010
This year, perhaps in response to the economy, silk florals have gained popularity. Stunning fall inspired wreaths are gracing the doors of homes across the country. The styles range from grapevine with a hint of silk foliage to full wreath designs of silk foliage and miniature pumpkins.
Autumn Garlands for 2010
Garlands have moved away from gracing doors and windows and have now come to rest on tops of mantels. Again, as silk florals regain popularity, garlands are being seen as a quick and easy way to add seasonal décor to a home in an inexpensive way that generates a big visual impact.
Autumn Centerpieces for 2010
Again, in a nod to the current economy, live arrangements are falling by the wayside and silks are taking their place. The glitz and shimmer this year will be reserved for the Thanksgiving table. Autumn centerpieces this year will be smaller and more understated with more focus on the container than on the foliage. Designs are moving toward goblet designs, unique bowls, and one-of-a-kind vases. When vases are out of the limelight, the arrangement follows a more traditional design of understated elegance.
