With fall around the corner, it's time to plan some fall primitive decorating ideas. After a warm (or to be honest: HOT) summer, I look forward to the cooler fall season. That cool weather brings with it the leaves turning color, harvesting pumpkins, gourds, corn, etc, and smells of mulled cider and everything pumpkin spice. If your decor style is stuck back in summer, maybe these ideas will get you inspired.
Fall Primitive Decorating Ideas
Fall is probably my favorite season. Not just because I don't deal with summer heat well. I love the rich fall colors with trees losing their leaves coloring the ground like a giant collage. And there's the smells. Oh, the smell of a rainy fall day! I do enjoy bringing fall into my home to enjoy the colors, textures, and scents of the season. It makes a home feel cozy and warm after the bright sunny summer time has passed.
Color of Fall
Color your rooms with the rich colors of fall. Switch out your primitive home decor to fall theme pieces that rich in reds, oranges, and browns. You might even want to paint a feature wall in your living or dining room in a pretty fall color. Here are some color palettes to inspire you.
One of easy ways of bringing in fall colors is by bringing nature indoors. Fill a centerpiece bowl with mini pumpkins and acorns. Combine dried blooms, leaves, cinnamon sticks, and other natural ingredients. And then add a fall primitive fragrance oil. Match the scent with some candles or melting tarts and your home will be filled with wonderful fragrance.
While color is one of first things you notice about fall, it, also, has a lot of textures. And it's not just the texture of dried leaves or the smooth surface of pumpkins. Cool weather means pulling out warmer quilts and throws made of various fabrics and yarns. Nothing better than to cozy up under a warm quilt with some warm cocoa and a good book on a rainy fall afternoon!
Switch out your bed linens, throws, and decorative pillows for primitive fall colors. By having seasonal linens, you can quickly switch them out. This lets you have a new fresh look for every season, plus your linens will last longer.
It doesn't take a lot to create just the right balance of fall accent decor to make your home beautiful. Sometimes less is more. You avoid making your room feel crowded and it makes your favorite accessories draw attention. Visit Antique Farmhouse for beautiful fall home decor: pillows, table decor, more!
