Should you require encouragement to enjoy the process of design and decorate simply for the seasons, look no further than my friend, interior designer, and blogger Kathysue, who shares her secrets and sassy signature style at Good Life of Design. Kathy possesses the most energetic, life-affirming and beautiful spirit she pours out lovingly and graciously online…so let’s see what is inspiring this designer this fall.
Hi, Everyone! Today when I was driving home from an appointment I started noticing that some of the trees are already starting to turn. Just the other night for dinner I made a soup that I was craving, even though I am still in shorts and flip flops.
Every year when Fall comes around I find it hard to get motivated to change out my Summer décor to Fall décor.
Wooden turned candlesticks
Wooden cutting boards
Such a beautiful pinky/red color.
Brass candlesticks that glow
I love to use purples, white, and yellows for Fall.
Adding texture with baskets adds warmth to any space.
Bring in the warmth of Bakelite silverware.
Nuts and acorns
Fall Branches in a vase
By having this list on hand it makes it easier for me to change my décor to a more Fall-like look.
This year I chose to add a touch of gold to my black, white and blue color scheme in our great room…..
The gold added to the blue brings in a nice warm glow.
This Chinoiserie fabric was my combiner fabric in the room. It pulled together my color scheme for me.
As the weather gets cooler I will add some simple touches, nothing too thematic. It’s nice to use natural elements so I will be referring to my tried and true list of 18 items!
For more ideas that I like for Fall go to my Pinterest board…….
(just click on the word Fallish!)
Thanks, Kathysue, the addition of gold to your living room is so lovely! Please do visit my post over at Good Life of Design!
