Fall is one of our favorite seasons, not just because of the changing leaves and the cooler weather, but also because we genuinely love the aesthetic. We’ve still got a few months until the holidays start to take hold, so why not (pumpkin) spice up your home with a few items to celebrate autumn?

Our friends at Society6, an online retailer for artists and makers, just curated a Fall Feels collection, highlighting four hues that are all the rage this season: terracotta, pale lilac, charcoal, and straw. Here, learn how to decorate your home with each, and shop a variety of Society6 products to achieve your fall design goals.

Terracotta

Oranges are all the rage in autumn, between fall foliage and the proliferation of pumpkins. Society6 has decided to take an earthy approach to the hue, selecting terracotta for its fall palette.

Throw pillows are an easy (and oftentimes affordable) way to spruce up your home decor with some seasonal accents. This fall, try this one with a geometric print that looks hand painted.

Pale Lilac

Lilac might traditionally be more associated with spring given the floral blooms, but its soothing tone does seem to pair well with the cooling temperatures. We’re also a fan of pairing lilac with oranges. Don’t believe us? See below.

Hanging a wall tapestry is a much easier way to change your wall color than painting or wallpapering. Remember how we said lilac and orange pair well together? Case in point.

Charcoal

Charcoal certainly grounds the brighter hues in Society6’s fall palette, recalling burnt logs in a fireplace or the ever-lengthening nighttime.
