Rustic Cabin Decor Brings Fall Inside your Home

Finally, fall is in the air! All around our little town the leaves are beginning to turn color, the air is crisp and cooler, and our thoughts turn to mugs of hot apple cider, visits to the pumpkin patch, and fuzzy warm slippers.

What better way to celebrate the change of seasons than to bring the feeling of fall indoors? Your
home decor is not only a mirror of your personal style, but can reflect the changing seasons with a few simple updates .

One of our favorite ways to bring in a touch of fall is to use rustic cabin decor items throughout the home. Think rough-sawn wood, raw edges on fabric accessories, burnished metal accents, and thick fisherman-knit afghans.

Accent your usual decor with a few unique antiques that speak to you. Hunting for new treasures is half the fun of decorating! We love the look of old pottery in wonderful fall colors, mixed in with your usua l tableware as either serving pieces or in a warm, fall tablescape. Antique bottles make interesting vases for sunflowers, tree branches with fall leaves, or dried grasses. Or try putting an old pair of boots in the corner by the door, as if waiting for a romp in the dry leaves.

Changing up your decorative pillows is another easy way to bring that fall feeling into your family room. Look for fabrics with texture and warmth, in rich colors like browns, reds, and deep mustard tones. It’s amazing what such small changes can do for your decor.
