Extend a Warm Welcome
Fall marks the start of holidays and guests galore, so give them a gracious welcome with a happy entryway. This Palm Beach foyer features an inviting window seat and nautical rug that softens the space.
When adding fall color, orange is not your only option. Jewel tones of deep purple, magenta, and even dark teal can go a long way in warming up a space.

Fire it Up
A get-together or solo evening at home becomes even more inviting with a roaring fire. Make yours shine even brighter by freshening your mantel décor. Earthy accents, like wildflowers and driftwood, are great for fall.

Create a Cozy Nook
Even seldom-used areas of the home can be cozied-up. The addition of a daybed turned this pass-through porch nook into a comfortable destination for curling up with a good book. Throw pillows with plenty of texture warm up the cotton duck mattress cover.

Show Off Fall's Bounty
From gourds to colorful squash and pumpkins, farmer's market produce is a classic and easy way to decorate. Display them in a vase or casually on a cutting board.

Bring in Color with Books
This richly hued library gets a pop of warm raspberry tones from the casually-placed coffee table books. The next time you crave a colorful accessory, try looking to your bookshelf.

Cozy Up Your Porch
Spring and summer aren't the only seasons for porch sitting. Crisp fall days can be some of the best for enjoying a screened or open-air living space. Just add throw pillows, a cushy rug, and a blanket.
