How to Mix Fall Colors With Neutrals

If you love fall but don’t like the harsh fall colors, keep it neutral by adding a subtle fall color. Fall colors are typically thought of as red, orange and yellows; but you don't have to feel limited to that. Browns, off-white, greys and tans are some neutral colors to start with that will add warmth to your fall décor without taking it overboard.

Add Texture:

Create some contract in your décor not with color, but by adding contrast. You can add

woven-wood baskets, a dried-grass bundle or a macramé table runner. Adding a few items like these will add depth to your neutral décor.

Pair decorations:

Create a pleasing table centerpiece or entryway table by pairing different decorations that look good together. If you are trying to pair items for a centerpiece on your dining

and real pumpkins with some dried plants. To keep the pumpkins with a neutral theme, you can paint them or use neutral colored gourds.

Add an accent color:

Adding an accent color with your neutral décor can also add depth to your interior. Some popular accent colors include black, orange-brown, green, red-brown, or gold.

Add cozy accessories:

Cozy accessories will top off your neutral-fall look. Add some fluffy pillows or soft blankets to create an inviting interior to your home.

Decorating for fall doesn't have to be the standard colors. Try mixing it up a bit! Need help designing the home of your dreams? Call Adolfson Interior Design at (651) 468-6208 or email
