‘Autumn Color Dining Room Inspiration ’ – Sammi Holloway
Mother Nature has unleashed her vibrant palette of golds,coppers, yellows and reds so why not bring a touch of Autumn into your dining room.
With the darker evenings setting in there is nothing better than sitting down to a hearty meal of seasonally inspired dishes with your loved ones.
Autumn inspiration for your guests
Be inspired by nature with its remarkable multicolored hues and wonderful scents.Then out walking, pick up fallen twigs or small branches with red or golden leaves. Bring in some greenery, golden gourds, orange pumpkins, fresh flowers and interesting branches. The simplest decorations are usually the most effective.
Wreaths can be used to decorate a wall or even used as a centerpiece with a pillar candle placed in the middle.
Scented candles add to the autumnal atmosphere.Not only does the twinkling of candles create a romantic ambience within your home, they also induce a beautiful aroma.Choose scents that reflect the season, such as cinnamon and cloves. They keep you feeling warm and encompass the room with luminous accent lighting.
Dining room embellishments from Autumn
From dinnerware with woodland themes to beautiful organic materials, the dinner table is the place to unite these inspirational elements in a coordinated fashion. Adorn your dining table with a mix of antique and reproduction creamware, vintage amber glasses and dessert plates that will compliment your fall decorating scheme.
Enhance the look of your dining table décor with some shimmering glass beaded accents, colourful table linens and festive napkin rings
Add warmth during the cool season with a cozy, wool accent rug and heavier, textured curtains in fall colours.
Create an evening to remember with seasonal place setting ideas that everyone will love. Take dried leaves and decorate each with your guests name using a gold metallic pen or attach a metal plant tag to stem fruit and write on it using a permanent black marker.
You may want to consider temporarily replacing some of your wall art with more seasonal pictures and artwork displays.
Remember the dining room table isn’t the only place to display beautiful decorations. The buffet table or sideboard is the perfect place to go for gold with lavish displays.
