Use Warm Colors in Your Fall Home Decor

Fall is one of our favorite times of the year. At Prairie in Bloom, we’re preparing for the season with a variety of home accents and florals that will bring the warmth and beauty of autumn into your living space.

Browse the aisles of our Omaha store or view our fall collection in our online shop and you’ll notice a range of fall colors – from the traditional oranges and reds to earthy hues to gorgeous jewel tones – and they all have a place in your fall home décor.

Why Do Colors Matter in Fall?

When you transition to a fall palette, it signals a definite shift from summer and brings a cozy, welcoming vibe to your home. Brilliant autumn colors complement neutral tones, with nature serving as the inspiration for all those hues.

Think about the colors that appear side by side in nature this season – the color of the turning leaves, the bark of trees, and the vibrant pumpkins, gourds, and plants. Think also of intense jewel tones – crimson, dark green, yellow, and plum – for accents. Choose neutral earthy tones such as brown, tan, wheat, beige, grey, and white for balance.

How Do You Use Fall Colors in Your Home?

Here’s some inspiration for transitioning your home décor from summer to fall, including faux florals and everyday greens, accent pieces, linens, and signage.

Fall Florals

Traditional Fall Colors – When most people think of fall colors, they think of bright oranges, yellows, and reds and you’ll find those traditional hues in our selection of fall florals, including the gorgeous orange pampas grass pictured below. Also popular for fall are bright yellow, lime green, and orange eucalyptus cascades, as well as white berries paired with orange leaves and pinecones. If you aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to summer, everyday greens with white sunflowers are a nice late summer and early fall look and they pair well with candle rings, lanterns, or dough bowls.

Neutral, Dried Botanicals – Dried botanicals are an up-and-coming faux floral trend with various color and texture options for realistic-looking arrangements. We like the neutral tones of dried eucalyptus, pampas grass, dried thistle, and dried palms shown below.

Non-Traditional Fall Colors – But don’t think that fall colors are limited to the traditional yellow, orange and rust colors. Think about a more subtle pop of crimson, plum, deep green, or purple. Look at these beautiful roses, grasses, and succulents with various shades of purple, green, and cream.

Home Accents

Incorporating fall colors into your home accents is another way to transition your rooms to fall décor. We love these deep green pillar candle holders. Wood vessels and figurines are another great option for fall to showcase natural elements in your space.

Of course, you can’t decorate for fall without pumpkins. Choose from a variety of textures, from metal to ceramic to fabric, and from a range of colors – orange, white, brown, green, grey, and even red. These fabric plaid pumpkins would look adorable on a shelf or fireplace mantel.

Add a beautiful burst of color with these green glass bottles. Prairie in Bloom also has glass bottles in cranberry and seafoam colors.

Fall Linens

Keep your space cozy and warm with fall linens. Choose neutral hues like grey, olive, sage, or blush cotton throws or add some color to a neutral chair or couch with pillows – like this wine-colored chenille cotton pillow.

Fall Signage

If you love signs – and who doesn’t, especially for farmhouse décor – then change out or add to your wall décor with autumn-themed signs. Some of our favorites use phrases like “Hello Fall,” “Grateful,” “Thankful,” or “Blessed.” But here’s a new favorite with a quote from Emily Bronte.
