Three Ways to Decorate Your Modern Home for Fall

Because autumn-inspired accents are typically tailored towards traditional homes, it might seem easier for owners and renters of modern homes to avoid fall decor altogether. The truth is that you don’t have to compromise your unique aesthetic to celebrate the change of seasons at home.

No mater if you prefer simple vignettes and white walls, a chic editorial style, or something in between the two, you can find ways to integrate typical autumn colors and motifs into your existing modern decor. Here are three ways to do so!

#1: Get Creative With Thanksgiving Centerpieces

How fresh is a monochrome green centerpiece (styled with black and gold) for a thanksgiving table? And it’s not only the color palette itself that makes this tablescape modern; displaying fall produce in a nontraditional manner creates an avant-garde statement.

You could instead use a bold color palette in a non-traditional centerpiece. A dark backdrop creates an editorial feeling while also highlighting vibrant autumn-inspired colors.

How about forgetting the centerpiece altogether? Try putting a modern hors d’oeuvre tray in its place – it’ll make a stylish and functional statement.

You don’t have to have actual pumpkins in your home when you can find textiles in colors inspired by them. In a room with white walls, orange and/or yellow accents are great for layering. Layering textiles will create visual interest while keeping you warm as the nights get cooler.
