By far my favorite room to decorate in our house is the Keeping Room. The room is a beautiful backdrop for endless color combinations since it’s made up of mostly neutral, classic furnishings and finishes.
Orange and Teal Fall Decor
Because I already had several accent pieces in teal, I decided to start there with my fall decor this year. I highly recommend shopping your existing decor before going out to purchase everything new every season. Who can afford that?
To make your rooms look really pulled together, try this trick: repeat elements at least 3 times in the room. When you repeat an element around a room at least 3 times it looks like you did it on purpose and that it belongs.
In the pics below, look for these elements I repeated:
- the color teal
- the color orange
Even though my goal was to bring in some fall color, I didn’t want it to be overwhelming. When working with bold colors you don’t have to add a lot to achieve a dramatic effect.
As you look around the room you can see I’ve sprinkled a little orange and teal fall decor throughout the entire space.
Let’s take a closer look at the focal point of the room.
The large wood and metal architectural piece stays up year round, and I get my husband to change out the wreath seasonally. I made this wreath using a plain grapevine wreath as a base, then I tied a swag around it. Some burlap ribbon tied in a knot finishes it off.
The mantle is pretty symmetrical this season. A framed fall print with 3 grapevine pumpkins in front is at the center of the mantle.
Moving out from there on each side are coral, glass teal candlesticks topped with golden pumpkins, and teal vases with orange flowers and bittersweet.
This fireplace has an elevated hearth. In my house that means I can use some of my more fragile pieces here since I don’t have to worry about the Golden Retriever knocking them down. The fireplace is filled with real firewood, and battery powered fairy lights on copper wire intertwined. I love the glow of these tiny lights in the evenings!
The teal vase and lighted twigs are from Kirklands. I filled the lantern with seashells, a wooden candlestick, and a pumpkin. It’s topped off with a burlap ribbon that matches the one in the wreath above the fireplace.
Some wooden candlesticks and a cute little stool occupy the other side of the hearth.
The Coffee Table
A wooden tray holds a few nods to fall in the center of the coffee table.
I used a little wood and cotton in each of my rooms downstairs this fall. Those 2 elements allowed me to tie everything together and still have each room take on a unique color scheme.
And it wouldn’t be my home without a few seashells scattered about.
A black framed mirror hangs above the buffet flanked on each side with 2 black 8×10 frames. I change the prints in the 8×10 frames seasonally. To go along with my orange and teal fall decor I created colorful fall leaves on a teal background. You can find the prints HERE for free to download and print.
You can see my orange and teal fall decor theme is repeated here, too.
