No experience compares to the feeling that comes along with sitting by an appealing fireplace on a crisp fall evening. That’s especially true when you’re surrounded by seasonally appropriate elements like fragrant candles, eye-catching pumpkin patterns, and colorful foliage to bring the outdoors in.
Adding seasonal touches to your mantel is a simple way to incorporate the colors and elements of the season into your living space.
Consider colors such as delicious plums, brilliant yellows, magnificent fiery oranges, and warm browns. You can replicate fall motifs with seasonal symbols such as woodland creatures, autumn foliage, acorns, and symbols of the harvest to create a cohesive look.
Baskets, cushions, blankets, frames, mirrors, and vases are just some of the items you may utilize to create a unique fall display.
