Burgundy, pink, fuchsia, turquoise, aqua: these are all top of the mind colors for autumn, no? If not, welcome to my autumn and fall décor ideas for the home. I love the traditional orange, brown, and cream palate of fall décor. But, nature has more to offer, so why not expand our fall color palate? Here is how I used Fresh New Fall Color Ideas for the Home.

The fall leaves provide so much color inspiration. Because the main floor of my home is alive with similar bright colors, I use them in my fall décor. Here are:

Four Tried and True Fall Decor Items in Fresh New Colors

  1. Velvet Pumpkins
  2. Fall Floral Picks or Garland
  3. Candle Rings – re-imagined
  4. Fall Focal Piece

1. Velvet Pumpkins for a Fanciful Pumpkin Vine

The turquoise desk in my entry way would have been sweet with brown, cream, and a dash of orange fall decor. But, you wont’ be surprised that I went in a completely unexpected direction. I used the turquoise desk as a jumping off place to create a fanciful pumpkin vine. I didn’t have to make one purchase to create this. I had the dreamy burgundy, fuchsia, and blue flowers and picks in a tub in the basement. The velvet pumpkins have been making appearances for a few years in my fall decor. You’ll find them on this blog post nestled on the sofa, creating a different look altogether: Five Items to Create a Traditional Fall Look.

2. Fall Floral Picks

You can find ready made fall garlands at the craft store that will work great for building a pumpkin vine. For my fanciful pumpkin vine, I combined several picks, and flowers in the colors I wanted in my entry way. You can make the pumpkin vine as full or as simple as you like.

3. Add Fall Textures to your Wall Sconce with Candle Rings.

I had several beautiful brown and cream candle rings that I picked up a a craft store after season clearance a few years ago. So, the only purchase I made for this entrance display was a can of fuchsia spray paint, and the rose colored picks shown below that were nine for $2! I used the paint to add the desired color to my clearance candle rings shown here on the wall sconces. Oh, how I love spray paint! The rose colored picks were added to provide fullness.

4. Fall Focal Piece

What would a pumpkin vine be without fall’s favorite varmint? See him? He was “enhanced” with the fuchsia spray paint as well. I think we all need a fuchsia squirrel in our fall home decor.

    Wow. I love all these bright berry hues. The color and textures of velvet make it all feel so lush. A fun change of pace from traditional autumn color and the neutral farmhouse style you often see. Beautiful.

    I love seeing fall colors that aren’t traditional!
    JUst like Christmas decor isn’t just red and green color combinations neither should fall decor be tradiitonal colors.
    Decorate to the color of your rooms!
