One of my favorite seasons is without a doubt Fall. There is something to be said for the fresh comfortable air and Fall colors. The kids spend more time outdoors during the Fall then they do in the summer, most likely, because the summer is just to humid here to be outdoors. We even have an outdoor fire pit and living space in the backyard that we enjoy more with these cooler temps and sitting out there last weekend I decided how I was going to decorated my home this Fall. In previous years I have stayed more neutral with a white color scheme but not this year. I always enjoyed the gorgeous vibrant colors of Fall leaves from the yellows, brassy tones, and oranges so this year that became my base. I think.
Well, here is the thing. I have an interior with colors and mostly different shades of blue. I was nervous to see how these pops of orange would work with my deep blues without it seeming like I was paying a tribute to my Alma Matar (GO Illini). Yeah, they are blue and orange. So this past week I slowly pulled some pieces from the spaces, left others that were not too overpowering, and brought in those orange tones. I tested it out on instagram first and the feedback has been great!
Who knew that when you are actually looking for orange, yellows, and gold tones to decorate your home the choices are endless. Seriously, now every corner I turn I can find more pieces in orange and gold tones when I thought everyone was doing whites, browns and more neutral palette.
