This post will explore fresh new fall color ideas for the home.
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?
You don’t have to walk or drive very far too find amazing colors on display during the autumn months. Vibrant breathtaking colors are abundant. I found these fresh new fall color ideas not far from my front door.

The fall leaves above provided so much color inspiration for my home this year. Because the main floor of my home is alive with similar bright colors, the bright colors of fall were not over powered.
So my friends, here are:
Fresh New Fall Color Ideas for the Home
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. \
AND…..do you want to know the best part about the fall décor for this entry way?
Believe me, you do!! It was kind of sort of FREE!
I didn’t have to make one NEW purchase to create this. I had the burgundy, fuchsia, and blue flowers and picks in a tub in the basement from previous floral creations; and the velvet pumpkins have been making appearances for several fall seasons. The burgundy fall candle rings were spray painted, as was the super star pink woodland animal.
Four Tried and True Fall Decor Items in Fresh New Colors
- Velvet Pumpkins
- Fall Floral Picks or Garland
- Candle Rings – revamped
- Fall Focal Piece – Special Woodland Animal
1. Velvet Pumpkins for a Fanciful Pumpkin Vine
This is no ordinary pumpkin vine, right?
This pumpkin vine has the most vibrant soft velvet pumpkins nature has ever grown! I mixed them into the vine I created and described below.

2. Fall Floral Picks or Ready Made Fall Garland
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 for this fresh fall color scheme. You can make the pumpkin vine as full or as simple as you like.
This vine took three large focal fuchsia stems, four eucalyptus stems, and three statice stems that I cut apart. I chose a plum, blue, and a natural color to use here.

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 craft store after season clearance a few years ago. So, with a can of fuchsia spray paint, and the rose colored statice I used in the pumpkin vine, I revamped the once brown berried candle rings.
4. Fall Focal Piece
What would a pumpkin vine be without fall’s favorite varmint? See him? He was “enhanced” with the same fuchsia spray paint I used on the candle rings. I think every fall home needs a fuchsia colored squirrel. He brings just the perfect amount of fancy to this fall entry way.
