Autumn is upon us, and it’s a favorite season for decorators. There are lots of inexpensive and even free accessories out there, that make it easy and fun to add a little Fall flavor to your home. And if all that comes to mind is black and orange, remember that Halloween is just a small part of the season.
Above, several collected items are grouped for a table arrangement. The artificial orange berries add some texture and Fall color. The table is covered with a shimmery leaf patterned fabric, and then a Fall colored scarf centered to ground the vignette.
Bring natural elements in. Branches of colored leaves, pumpkins, gourds and even pretty rocks. Below, the same arrangement is adjusted a bit with a vase and multi-colored branches, adding height, texture and more interest.
The grand piano is opened to display beautiful glass pieces and colored leaves.
A wooly scarf serves as a runner on the coffee table. A pretty orange plate holds a tiny pumpkin, unusual rock and and petite vase with berries. A few little books to the side balance the vignette. Toss pillows in colorful textures and patterns keep the Fall colors going.
Red twig dogwood branches below stretch from a brown glass vase, and are accompanied by a plant in a colorful container (a thrift store bargain at $0.25), a glass pumpkin and some green walnuts right off the tree.
A corner shelf unit presents an interesting collage of items in Fall subject and colors.
Note how many arrangements here work from three main pieces. Again, the magic number 3 is so helpful. Employ everyday items like scarves, books and plants. Just use your imagination and have fun with it.

I enjoy your design ideas. If I ever switch from being a bit of a cluttered, everything I like is out somewhere decorator to the spare, Japanese-style, with a couple of pieces shown off in a simple space I’ll incorporate your ideas for seasonal changes. Meanwhile, I guess I’ll just enjoy the pictures and consideration of alternatives that do exist, even if I don’t take them up.
I’m glad you’re enjoying Artzzle. My style isn’t too spare though, I just try to make groups of things rather than spreading treasures out more. It works great for us because 1. I’m a constant “rearranger” so I like frequent change, and 2. staying more basic makes our small home seem a bit bigger, gves us a little extra work and table surfaces. I don’t like taking too much time to clean either 😦 so this makes that chore easier and faster! Have a good weekend!
