Embrace the Magic of Metallics this Fall

Embrace the Magic of Metallics this Fall

When you think of fall decor, do you think of metallics? Maybe not. We often look to rustic textures–the flannel pillows, wooly throws, and burlap pumpkins–to convey an autumn mood . But take note: metallic and reflective surfaces can give you the mellow fall feels that you’re craving!

Gold, copper, antiqued silver and burnished brass–all of these rich, reflective metals are just-right choices for autumnal accents in your home.

For example, try mixed metal vases filled with dried flowers and grasses for your fall centerpiece. Especially when combined with white and glass pumpkins, these metallic touches really—shine! A natural wood finish table keeps the look classy but understated.

We all know that nothing ushers in fall like the gleam of candlelight on these shorter days. Lanterns in reflective metals like brass help cast that cozy mood around the room. From large to extra large, lanterns offer wonderful fall decor possibilities. On your console, mantel, hearth, or coffee table, it’s so easy to build a gorgeous vignette around a lantern.

Speaking of reflective surfaces, don’t forget the light-sharing power of mirrors. For example, set your candles (flame or flameless) in front of a mirror or on a mirrored tray to spread sparkle. Mirrors also double the impact of a fabulous fall arrangement. 


Metallic decorative accessories from vases to lamps and canisters to candleholders introduce golden autumn light around your rooms.

Go ahead and break out the flannel and faux fur for fall. But be sure to accent your fall favorites with the gleam of reflectives as you decorate in the golden season.
