Going for walks on trails that go through the forest always amazes me and the rest of our team. But decorating for the fall season – that’s my favourite part! All the warm colours that I have to pick from.
In art, some colours are classified as warm colours (red, orange, yellow), while others are classified as cool colours (blue, green, purple). And when decorating your home, room, (or even classroom), sometimes it is helpful to have decorations that align with these colour classifications.
I mean fall is a time where it begins to get cold. Frost is beginning to appear on car windows in the morning, the vests and sweaters have made it out of the depths of the closet … So when the cold begins to come, you’ll need the warm colours around you!
Pumpkins and gourds are some of my favourite things to decorate with. As it so happens, they are also quite easily available this time of year. Have you visited your local pumpkin patch? Choosing the perfect pumpkin was always a highlight for me growing up (and even today as I search for the perfect one for my front porch). This weekend find your perfect pumpkin! Grab some gourds, pinecones or leaves (preferably clean ones) and decorate your kitchen/dining room table, your living room, bedroom or another space that could use a touch of warmth during this cooler season.
Here’s some fun ways I like to decorate:
