Bring in the Right Colors

Burnt orange reflects the color of the changing leaves outside. This color is welcoming, warm, and easily found in Blue Ridge and Blairsville’s leaf changes in the Fall. Bring burnt orange tones into your home through throw pillows, rugs, or floral accents for the Fall season.
Red is another color that reflects the changing seasons. Red is also associated with energy, movement, and life. Reds can be brought into your space through blanket throws, lamps, vases, artwork, or bedding. Adding a hint of rusty reds to your home will make it reflect the Autumn spirit or changed leaves and new life.
To add some contrast, try using some earthy greens in your Fall décor. The easiest and most simple and natural way to do this is with plants and greenery. Earthy greens add life and an organic twist to your space, really making it feel like you’ve brought the great outdoors inside! You can also add green accents through pottery, artwork with natural landscapes, or throw pillows.
Browns add warmth and create a clean look. Many rustic homes in Blue Ridge and Blairsville will already have lots of brown in them if they are wooden cabins, lodges, or homes.
