Who says fall decor needs to be orange and red? Let’s decorate for Fall this year with Teal and buffalo check.
In this house the color teal is a neutral. My family often jokes that everything I do is kissed with teal. So why should Fall decor be any different? Today I want to show you how I’ve skipped the normal autumnal colors and used teal, buffalo check and metallics.
Now this is the first time since my renovation that I have decorated for Fall. It felt really good pulling out my past decor and discovering a new way to decorate. Now this isn’t the first year I decorated with teal Fall decor and more than likely won’t be my last.
Teal Fall Decor
Now you are not going to walk into a pumpkin patch and find a teal pumpkin so you’re going to have to get inventive. I have been collecting my pumpkins over the years from TJMaxx, Target and some local shops. Can’t find teal pumpkins or the color you are looking for? You can buy some orange pumpkins and DIY them yourself with chalk paint. If you do that I suggest foam or plastic pumpkins vs real. Paint on real pumpkins speeds up the pumpkin going bad.
Decorating an open concept space
Since this area is an open concept kitchen dining and living room. It needs to feel connected and tied together. This space has teals, buffalo check patterns and black metal accents in the hardware, lighting and furniture.
Pick a theme or color scheme and use it throughout the whole space. I carried the different colors and patterns of pumpkins from the dining table into the living room area. The gold brass vintage candle stick also compliment the brass pumpkin on the shelf behind the table.
Creating visual interest through layers.
When starting to decorate a table scape or mantle I like to ground the design with a textile. In this case a table runner that is almost the same shade as my dining table. I consider this my first layer. I start to bring in varying sizes of pumpkins along with a faux eucalyptus garland.
Mixing old with new. I love to collect vintage candlesticks and baskets. When I create a table scape or a vignette I like to bring in some height. Candle holders are a great way to do this. Creating a layered and collected look.
Plants bring life into a room. It is seldom you will walk into a room of my house and not be greeted with 5 plus plants.
