A Touch of Autumn at the Beach

The hot chocolate came out of the pantry this week; which means Autumn decorating is around the corner. Nature and all of its glory are our favorite items to decorate with, so we searched for inspiration and found these wonderful ideas…

Better Homes & Gardens created a garland of Autumn finds. By knotting clusters of fresh leaves and mini pumpkins onto a length of twine they created an instant window swag which we have put on our must-try Autumn decorating list.  You?

We used Hydrangea leaves as candle and glass coasters all summer long so why not use Fall leaves?  Place your favorite Autumn scented candles in clear jars or candle holders and set them atop real leaves. Silk leaves from the craft store work well too!

The muted tones of off-white, ivory and gray are combined with pops of color from the corn and leaves in this chic display.  This country cottage decor is Autumn-chic yet light and bright which is perfect for the beach cottage style.

It’s not always necessary to add traditional “Autumn” decor to your cottage.  The below vignette offers the colors of leaves in Fall yet is elegant, cottage chic and there isn’t a stereotypical “Autumn” decoration in site.

A wood tray is filled with seashells, rocks, a rusty star and wire basket which all provide beautiful Autumn hues and textures. How delightful! This is exactly the way we love to decorate during Autumn.
