It’s really difficult to combine a “beachy vibe” into Autumn Centerpieces, isn’t it? Blending coastal blues with bright pumpkin orange isn’t the best look in my opinion. Our contributing editor, Caron White, might disagree! She recently shared some Tangerine Orange with an Aqua Turquouise decorating inspiration and we were quite impressed.
The main element when creating, or purchasing, an Autumn Centerpiece, is to stay with natural fabrics and soft neutral colors. Cotton and burlap are perfect natural fabrics. Neutral colors include off-white, ivory, tan and light blue.
A little tip when decorating for a beach house: use what natural has provided! Driftwood, sea shells, flowers, leaves, greenery, fruit — you can’t go wrong!
Here are a few favorite Autumn Centerpieces; which will work in numerous beach houses, whether you prefer cottage chic or a modern interior design style.
