Hi, everyone, I’m Susi and I write as a guest blogger for Design Shuffle, a fantastic social media site where you can post pics of your design projects and browse our database of tens of thousands of pics for inspiration for your next project. I love visiting amazing design blogs, like Open House, and sharing ideas. I'm a huge fan of Open House's posts on Etsy finds and wish I lived closer to Richmond to stop by the store. I'm thrilled to be here guest blogging today about autumn interior designs and accents. Falling for fall is easy for me; it's my favorite season. I've pulled together some great ideas for autumn inspired interiors. Enjoy!

Autumn Accents

Falling for autumn is all about celebrating nature's golden season. Bringing the outdoors inside, through colors, patterns and textures is the best way to create autumn accents for your home.

Autumn Accents

To highlight the lovely fall foliage, add warm gold to your décor. Warm metallics like bronze, copper and rose gold are also good choices for metallics for autumn.

Autumn Accents

Adding velvet's and knits to your décor is a sure way to fall for autumn decorating. A thick cable knit throw is so cozy for a favorite reading chair, sofa or bed. Adds such great texture too!

Autumn Accents

Fall for autumn's glorious rich colors by adding accents of curtains and runners to your dining room. Swapping out summer sheers for rich velvet's makes a big difference. Love the plum color.

Autumn Accents

Autumn decorating ideas inspired by nature need not all be riots of foliage colors. Creams and browns are great colors for autumn accents. Look for natural elements that have great shape and texture for interest.

Autumn Accents

Create a harvest vignette in the entry or dining room. This group features a sunflower head (so sculptural) and beautiful earth toned pottery. The potted herb adds a little Tuscan or Napa style.

Autumn Accents

Find creative ways to incorporate fall colors into your décor. So many clever DIY ideas out there on blogs can help you get started.
