While it may feel like fall is in full swing everywhere else in the country, we’re still walking around in our shorts and flip flops here in Charleston. The palmettos don’t change to fiery shades of red, orange and yellow in October in the lowcountry, but that doesn’t mean you can’t cozy up your coastal home with fall decor! Check out these tips to blend the elements of the coastal Carolina with fall decor we see all over magazines and our Pinterest boards:
Get cozy with layers in your living room
Outside it’s too warm for all the gorgeous fall layered outfits we see on Pinterest, but what about layers for your living room? You can get that cozy, layered look inside with throw pillows, stacked rugs and soft blankets. Knitted pillows and rugs in neutral colors are always a great option when looking to cozy up a space without losing a beach vibe.
Display fresh flowers in deep, warm tones
Fresh flowers aren’t just for spring and summer! Sunflowers, brown amaranthus, burgundy dahlias, artichoke blooms, purple scabiosa, thistle and more all make for festive fall centerpieces for your table, counter or bedside. You can pick up beautiful fall themed blooms like Grand Bohemian bouquet above at Charleston Flower Market!
We’re all about accessorizing our outfits here at Charleston Flower Market, but we’re also big proponents of accessorizing our homes as well! Find some fall themed dish towels, wall decor or placemats that speak to you and place them around your home. Don’t forget to accessorize your front door, too! We’ve got wreaths perfect for any Charleston home in the store!
Incorporate the beach
Before you pack up your seashells, sand dollars, and driftwood decor for the season, think about integrating it into your fall decor! Mix some white pumpkins with the whitewashed shells you found on your last beach day on your coffee table. Or, fill a clear vase with bits of driftwood and pinecones for a fall themed table centerpiece.
