Six Ways to Add Autumn Warmth to Your Kitchen

Posted by Jenna Frederick on September 17, 2015 0 Comments

I don't know about you, but September means one things for me....FALL DECORATIONS! The mantle, front door wreath, pumpkins on the porch, and fall scented candles are all simple ways to add a little autumn warmth to the home. However, what about the number one most used room in the house.....the kitchen! So often, the kitchen gets overlooked when it comes to decoration. Here are six decoration ideas http://designthusiasm.com/ recommends!

 

1. Light! Soft, overhead lighting and especially candlelight are the first things that come to mind when I think of adding warmth to a room. I keep candles in various spots around the kitchen!

2. Color! Autumn is a season of magnificent color. If you're going to add candles or other decorative accessories, why not add them in a nutmeg, cinnamon, or caramel color?

3. Seasonal Dishes. Beautiful plates can play the role of lovely artwork when displayed on the walls. I like to use glided plate racks that are pretty in themselves, and make it easy to change plate motifs in a matter of minutes!

4. Spicy aromas. There's nothing quite like the smell of autumn. Spicy aromas like cinnamon and the like can be found in potpourri and candles, and add a delightful feeling of warmth to the room.

5. Nature Imagery. In addition to the imagery on dishes and ceramics, you can use actual items from nature like pine cones, acorns, and leaves to bring the season indoors. I like to use these tiny treasures as filler around my candles. 

6. Food! No autumn decor could be complete without gourds and pumpkins. I have them sprinkled throughout my house and in my kitchen, I have a basket of warm toned gourds.
