There’s something about fall that just calls for a touch of country decor in your home. You could just toss a couple of pumpkins out on the front porch and call it a day, or you could bring a little October inside and keep the cozy going all year ’round.
Bring in some outdoorsy elements–a pair of the handsome Muir Wood Acorn Bookends add a touch of elegance to any space. Sure, you can use them as bookends, but they’ll also look great as part of a tablescape or on the mantle. Add the Nona Root Tray to the center of the table, load it up with colorful fall gourds and place the bookends on either side for a rustic seasonal centerpiece that will take you through Thanksgiving.
Some North Woods pottery in the pine cone motif adds a nice touch to your table. These pieces are hand-thrown, salt-glazed, and are dishwasher and microwave safe. This pottery wants to be useful– fill it with hearty soups, yummy dips and sandwiches made with sourdough bread. They’re also pretty, durable, and a few pieces are large enough to display on a side table as a catch-all for mail or keys.
Adding a new design element or two gives an area an entirely new feel. A new sunburst style mirror in a reclaimed teak warms up a powder room or entrance hall, and you can add a pair of sconces on either side for softer lighting effects. If you’re really bold, and careful, use vintage ones that hold real candles.
A few simple accents will infuse your home with a welcoming warmth for the cold months. If you’d like more ideas on decorating with a rustic touch, please visit us online any time.
