Let’s get outdoors and decorate for fall. I love the colors of fall so today I’m celebrating the saturated, brilliant colors that are distinctive of my very favorite season. I’m teaming up with Balsam Hill and Thos. Baker to create a cozy spot by the fire pit on my patio. Come on over and join me…
It’s HOME STYLE SATURDAY! Thanks, Lory for putting this group together. Please check out her gorgeous blog Designthusiam.
Today I’m sharing how to bring the colors of fall to your outdoor decorating. So let’s walk down to the fire pit where I have my new favorite chair!
Our fire pit gets the most use from now until Christmas. It’s the perfect place to read or take a meal and enjoy conversation with family and friends! Even when it’s not lit it’s a little piece of heaven in our backyard!
For me, the best way to add seasonal colors to outdoor decor by creating vignettes using touches of seasonal elements. Did you notice that the Adirondack chair and the table are very neutral? Yes, that way I can use them and change the decor around them all year! I mostly choose neutral foundational pieces because they are more versatile!
The Bainbridge Adirondack chair is perfection around the fire pit! This chair is so comfortable and deliciously crafted! I like to wrap myself in a tartan throw and relax!
My well loved Tartan throw adds a big punch of fall color! And doesn’t it pair so well with the teak chair?
Other items that would nice on this chair are…
- fall inspired pillow
- flannel blanket
- faux fur throw
- burlap lumbar pillow
When it gets darker I can turn them on and they will not go out in if it’s breezy. And they look amazingly realistic!
The juxtaposition of the neutral table and candleholders with the color arrangement under it create an area that is both restful and seasonally cheery! It’s so important to balance areas of calm and neutral with those bright and bold colors of fall even in outdoor decorating!
The mums were placed in a nubby basket and a trio of pumpkins sit next to it. I like to add fall decor to the base of my foundational pieces like chairs and tables! Just a few fall touches makes this area festive and very usable!
Wouldn’t a stack of pumpkins look great here too?
Two outdoor teak lanterns flank the stone stairs dotted with pumpkins in oranges and white!
Use colorful fall elements such as pumpkins to sit on stairs, chairs, ledges etc. Here are some other fall elements that look great tucked there…
- flowering cabbage
- potted ornamental peppers
I’m using the lanterns with the Miracle Flame candles to light the stairs this fall. I like using white candles in lanterns so when they are lit there is no other color in the lantern but the glow of the flame.
These lanterns would also look beautiful filled colorful fall elements like…
- fairy lights
- white mini pumpkins and small pinecones
- mini corn
Using fall colors is a balance. A little bit of color goes a long way! And just the right amount will make your outdoor decorated spaces fabulous!
So, if you are thinking of adding a little bit of fall color to your outdoor decor I hope these simple tips have helped!
