How to Decorate for Fall using Art

As promised in the last blog post, here are a few favorite fall paintings and tips on how to decorate for Fall using art. For those who are the DIY types, you can easily purchase art supplies and create your own Fall decor. Acrylic paints are the easiest to use for a quick Fall creation.

In conjunction with fall elements, such as garlands of autumn colored leaves, using art as part of your decor enhances your space. Candles, nuts, dried flowers, satin floral arrangements, and many other Fall-themed items, will enliven any room. Your guests will feel welcomed and cozy with the addition of these decor ideas.

“Pumpkins” oil on canvas is a favorite little painting I created just for use in my Fall decor. At 4″x4″, this small painting is a perfect addition to any tablescape.

Surrounded by a candle, dried corncobs, and chestnuts atop a fall-themed table runner, the “Pumpkins” oil painting makes a bold statement.

Decor Ideas ~

You can see how using small Fall-themed paintings in your decor creates a unique feeling since art can help set the mood for this beautiful season. Mixing store-bought items with original paintings in your decor brings about a quality of richness to your environment because it’s all about texture and color.

One of my favorite decor ideas is to display small paintings with a garland of fall leaves as a backdrop. “Abstract Leaves 2″ is a 4″x4” oil painting on gallery wrapped box canvas. The painting sits on a shelf in the entryway and adds a pop of vibrant color.

Fall is all about explosions of color and is my absolute favorite time of the year! I am inspired each season to paint new art works of vibrant color to celebrate the season like this painting:

You can see how easily I changed the design of my side table simply by moving the “Autumn Leaves” painting to the opposite side.

Celebrating Nature ~

A colorful celebration of leaves reminds us of the beauty of nature. In this next painting, cool hues of purple and blue are juxtaposed with warm tones. “Colorful Fall Leaves”, a 4″x4″ oil on gallery wrapped box canvas, shares the space of the entry way shelf.

Hanging Artwork on a wall adds to a Fall-themed decor, as well. “Lil’ Pumpkins” oil painting can be seen on the gallery wall and is painted in oil on a 6″x6″ panel. The painting is framed in black with a gold liner which makes the pumpkins vibrate with excitement. Click HERE if you’d like “Lil’ Pumpkins to be yours!
