VINTAGE DECOR WITH WARM TONES AND COZY VIBES CAN
EFFORTLESSLY TRANSFORM YOUR HOME FROM SUMMER TO FALL.
WARM COLORED POTTERY - Vintage pottery is full of charm and gorgeous texture. Rich, warm shades of pottery look beautiful in the late summer months and into the fall. For summer, fill your pottery with dried palm spears or sea grass. In the fall, the same pieces can be filled with wheat or corn stalks. Gather several pieces of neutral pottery and make a vignette. Bowls can be filled with citrus for summer and pumpkins for autumn.
BROWN TRANSFERWARE - An easy way to add a touch of fall to your everyday is with your dishes. Brown transferware looks equally lovely with dried citrus and sunflowers as it does with gourds and fall foliage. Hang your favorite transferware plates on the wall or mix them with your year round white dinnerware to create a simple tablescape. It’s the little things that help create special moments. There’s nothing quite like eating a deliciously warm slice of pumpkin bread off of your favorite piece of seasonal vintage dinnerware.
BASKETS ADD WARMTH & TEXTURE - Sprinkling natural colored baskets around your home is a great way to add warmth, texture, and an overall cozy feeling during the fall. This vintage tobacco basket fills the space on this white wall and adds more depth and interest. Small baskets can be filled with seashells in July and acorns in August or September.
AMBER GLASS BOTTLES - Amber glass bottles look great year round, but my favorite time of year to bring them out is late summer to early fall. Their glossy sheen gives a sun kissed glow in the summer and a deep radiance in autumn. They’re beautiful alone or filled with your favorite seasonal florals.
GET COZY WITH A VINTAGE QUILT - Bright vintage quilts make the perfect summer throws and picnic blankets. In the fall, swap them out for vintage linens with rich jewel tones. A framed antique quilt adds a touch of coziness and warmth to neutral decor. Layer a vintage quilt on a blanket ladder or throw one over the back of your favorite chair. You’ll instantly create some cozy fall vibes that will make you want to cuddle up with a cup of hot cider.
