Whether it means enjoying Halloween celebrations and candy, planning to cook a delicious Thanksgiving feast with family, or otherwise embracing all the best that autumn has to offer, we’re all excited to begin embracing the season! However, when decorating Naples luxury homes, you might run into a few stumbling blocks. Mixing autumnal elements with your coastal, modern home could pose a bit of a unique challenge. However, with just a bit of practice merging fall flair with Floridian style, you’ll soon be setting the seasonal mood in your space flawlessly.
Consider Your Color Palette
When you think of autumn colors, your mind will often jump to Halloween palettes (oranges, purples, and black) or anything reflective of changing leaves (like reds, yellows, oranges, and browns). However, we don’t often see these seasonal transitions in Florida’s natural world – making these shades stand out starkly against the beachy hues of your décor! If you’re not a fan of that bold contrast, consider modifying your fall decorating to meld beautifully with the rest of your home. You could adopt neutral or while pumpkins and gourds, mixed in with sandy browns, mellow blues, and even crisp metallics. A bright and breezy color palette will help keep your space feeling coastal and modern – no matter the time of year.
Combine Coastal Materials with Fall Touches
It’s not an impossible task to blend classic falltime elements into your home while keeping your personal sense of style. It’s all a matter of finding fresh, clean, modern design elements that fit. Playing with natural, beachy materials can be a perfect way to combine autumn décor with that seaside feel. Try incorporating burlap, rope, or natural wood into table settings, wreaths, or more. Pumpkins can actually pair great with seashells, starfish, and driftwood accents.
Look for modern fallish design elements – metallic or wire sculptural pumpkins, cornucopias, or branches, or even pampas grass or wheat bundle bouquets in mason jars to introduce a harvest feel. If you’re seeking a touch of Halloween design, incorporate a “haunted” feeling with some antique touches – like a lantern, aged books, or old seaside photographs or illustrations.
Keep Things Cozy and Comfortable
While sweater weather in Florida may still be on the horizon, it’s always possible to create that comfortable atmosphere you crave inside Naples luxury homes. When you’re planning to spend time inside enjoying warm tea or cocoa, relaxing with a new read, or watching spooky movies with the family, think about how to create a cozy, fallish living space. Turn down the lights and warm up the space with some candles. Many overlook the power of scent to transport your mind to new seasons. Pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, apple, cranberry, pine, or clove scent notes will have you excited about autumn right away! Plus, add in some cozy blankets – fringed flannel throws or knits work perfectly.
Hopefully, these ideas will get you thinking about how autumn and coastal design can coexist – and can create a special, seasonal look for your home!
