With the cool drop in temperature, you might be tempted to make room for fall decorations, but don’t let go of summer just yet! Indian summer is a period of unusually dry, warm weather occurring in late autumn, and with this temporary heat wave you can have fun mixing bright summer colors that pop when matched with rustic fall decor. Check out Furniture Row’s take on this eclectic new trend with these fun tips to create your own Indian summer styled room.
Add rustic and reclaimed.
Nothing will remind you of spending cozy fall in the woods quite like rustic and reclaimed furniture. Distressed wood pieces such as tables and cabinets add an organic aesthetic that brings nature directly into your home. Let the natural wood grain show its true colors with pieces like the Nantucket Server made of reclaimed Indian hardwoods that is sealed for luster to maintain the authentic paint residue on the wood. Take tree-loving design one step further with a unique table like the Montana Coffee Table that’s crafted of exposed teak roots supporting a sleek glass top. Stay rooted in Mother Nature, and let the forest inside!
Mix bold patterns and textures.
Incorporate the Indians’ love for intricate and colorfully detailed patterns with soft textures on room accents like rugs and chairs. Summery blues such as the dyed and luxurious denim colored Marbella Rug look great when paired with bold patterns in earthier autumn tones found on pieces like the Evelyn Accent Chair that boasts a mosaic-inspired print in red, brown, and beige. Just like the seasonal twist in temperature, don’t be afraid to mix the opposites for a look that’s truly one-of-a-kind.
Incorporate soft seating.
We all love curling up by the fireside to watch a movie or read a good book during the fall, so make sure your living space is full of soft places to sit! Sofas in warm neutral tones like the saddle brown Denver Loveseat look cozy with fluffy pillows, cushions, or blankets that match your color scheme like the green Escape Pouf. An extra amount of fluff can go a long way!
Bring in a pop of color.
Last but not least, liven up your Indian summer room with a bright pop of color on room accessories like lamps and art! Beautiful shades of turquoise are reminiscent of summer skies and look great with fall tones of red and orange. Furniture Row’s Tivoli Table Lamp adds a beautiful tint of blue for some cozy lighting. And nothing says Indian Summer like feathers! The Wind Song Canvas is the perfect finishing touch with bright watercolor painted feathers in orange, pink, and blue. Don’t say goodbye to color this fall!
