Fall is a wonderful time to enjoy nature. The crisp air allows you to linger outside and take in the beautiful fall colors. Outdoor rooms are wonderful to have. Elegant and elaborate or simple and cozy…they will be the perfect place for a respite after a long day.

If you don’t have an outdoor space, you can pay homage to nature’s beautiful creations by using elements found in nature in your décor. Choose knobs with a leaf or twig motif, or go a little wild and use animal print rugs and fabrics. Natural materials, such as teak tables or seashells, add warmth and create texture in your home.

Add bits of nature around the house with tiny air plants in glass globes, or create a container fairy garden with moss and succulents. Place tiny bird figurines on a rough hewn mantle or use actual feathers in a wreath or as an accent in a flower arrangement.

There are so many ways to show your love for nature in your decorating. Enjoy this beautiful time of year whether you are inside or out!
