Happy First Day of Fall!
Anyone who's active on social media will probably agree that over the last several years, Fall has developed a cult-like following. I see Fall-inspired pins on my Pinterest feed all year long, but as soon as August hits, it seems like my Facebook feed is chock full of excitement for the impending season. If "Fall" has become a cult, it's obvious that the "God" being worshipped is the ubiquitous Pumpkin Spice Latte. Seriously, type #pumpkinspicelatte (or even #psl) into the Twitter search bar and you will find enough references to keep your scrolling down for the rest of your natural born life.
Call me a follower, but fall is definitely my favorite season! While I do enjoy a good pumpkin spice latte from time to time, I think this season is more sentimental for me because its when Anthony and I celebrate both our dating and marriage anniversaries. Now when I think of fall, I get a warm fuzzy feeling thinking about the days and weeks leading up to our wedding last year.
In celebration of the change in seasons, I've put together a little fall color inspiration for you. When it comes to seasonal decorating, I tend to go for muted variations of the "typical" shades associated with different months or holidays. Especially for Fall, I like to do something different than typical orange and black so I can make my decorations last all the way through to Thanksgiving. This year, I'm planning to go with a rich, moody color, semi-70's inspired scheme of Persimmon, Charcoal, Apricot, Oxblood/Burgundy, Gold and French Gray.
I'll be posting throughout the next couple of weeks how I use this color scheme for my own fall decorating. I hope this gives you a little inspiration as you get started on yours!
