Throw pillows and blankets are the perfect way to change up your living room decor with the seasons… They can add splashes of color and texture, bring in prints and patterns, and add so much depth and style to your sofa. (Does anyone else feel a bit pretentious saying the word “sofa”? I grew up calling it a couch, so it still feels a little weird to me!) But I know it can be intimidating to mix and match colors and patterns. So today I just want to give you some visuals to work with. And I’ll take any excuse to go out and buy all the throw pillows I can fit in my cart. Anything for you, my lovely readers!
Fall is all about enjoying the outdoors… or the rain in our case, and then coming back inside to warm up, right? So cozy is my goal when I’m decorating for Fall. Warm colors, warm textures, and lots of layers are the keys to create a cozy and interesting feel in your space.
This season, I’m loving burnt coral, salmon, mustard, and navy. And I love teal- and I think it goes beautifully with Fall colors, so you’ll see it in here too.Don’t be afraid of orange… it’s not forever- just until Christmas! And no one said anything about Home Depot bucket orange. Look for muted hues like the ones mentioned above- salmon, burnt orange, mustard (I know this is more of a yellow).Plaids and check patterns are in instant sign of Autumn. That’s why we all wear our plaid shirts to the pumpkin patch, right?
The orange patterned pillow above is actually a DIY throw pillow cover. Check out my super-easy tutorial HERE! Still not feeling orange? Try plum instead!And if I can’t convince you to use some color, you can go neutral… but I couldn’t help but put some pumpkins in the pictures… you can handle that much orange, right? Now it’s time for a mug of cocoa or apple cider and a good book. Happy Fall! The pillows and throw blankets in these photos are from Target, HomeGoods, Fred Meyer, and World Market.
