The air is cooling and it’s time to start thinking about autumn decor—be it mantels, porches, or table settings! Decorating for fall is all about taking inspiration from nature. Let these five autumn color palettes inspire you to get started on your fall decor!

Autumn Spice is a classic fall color combination inspired by the changing leaves on the trees. The brown and taupe are accented by spicy red and orange tones for a warm and inviting atmosphere. When using this color palette in your home consider using pumpkins and mums as accents combined with neutral foundation pieces.

The Soft Fall Colors palette is warm and comforting. The warm gold with muted browns and taupes provide almost a layered effect due to their closeness in hue. Try layering the browns-like this nutmeg table cloth-in your tables linens with pops of gold as an accent color.

Autumn Canyon is a striking fall color palette. Incorporating reds, golds, tan and green this combination takes advantage of the entire range of beautiful fall colors. A classic look, these colors can be incorporated easily into a tablescape by adding rich warm fall flowers with plenty of greenery or adding a saturated overlay or table runner to your table setting.

Warm Breeze is an inviting color palette consisting of khaki, peach, rust, and mahogany tones. Again very evocative of the changing leaves that are the hallmark of the season, this color palette is easy to incorporate into decor with simple touches like cinnamon sticks, pumpkins, and apples.

Finally, the Corn Husk Harvest color palette was inspired by the colors of a corn field at harvest time. The rich maize combines with saturated tones of olive green and a muted taupe to give an elegant combination suited for late summer to fall decorating.
