{decorating with style} Get Cozy with Non-Traditional Fall Colors: Part1

Monday, September 14, 2015

I used to think I couldn't change up my decor for the fall, because my teal and gray living room isn't exactly a natural fit for traditional autumn colors. But over the years, I've realized that you don't have to have a neutral home in order to bring in different colors to change the mood of the room for the changing seasons - you just have to think beyond the traditional color palettes. 

With that in mind, last year I came up with 10 non-traditional fall color palettes - one for just about any home and style! That post turned out to be pretty popular, so I thought this year it would be fun to take it a step further and create a mood board for each color palette. I'm sharing the first five today, and the final five will be on the blog next Monday.

Non-Traditional Fall Color Palettes Mood Boards Part 1

I have kept these mood boards pretty simple - pillows and blankets, baskets and trays, and small accessories. These are the types of items that make it quick and easy to change up your seasonal decor without spending a lot of time or money. You'll notice in the mood boards that while the colors may not be those traditionally associated with fall, you can achieve a cozy feeling of fall in just about any color palette by selecting textures and patterns appropriate for the season.

Below each color palette and mood board, you'll find the source list for the included items.
