Design Recipes: Cathy’s Tip Of The Week – Northeast Inspiration: 7 Items to Decorate Your Dining Room for Autumn

December 12, 2014 Updated: April 23, 2016

With fall in the air, there couldn’t be a better time to bring a bit of Northeast inspiration into your home.

Picturing the Northeast in autumn conjures up images of crisp weather, rustic elements, wild apples, and vibrant leaves. Colors that are prominent in this region in the fall are an especially dazzling display of fiery orange, crimson reds, and chocolate browns.

If you’re ready to bring some rustic inspiration into your home this autumn, here are some décor elements that will help to transform your dining room into a Northeastern cabin…

1. Wall Art

Wall art is a great way to add a touch of rustic elegance to your dining room this fall. Maybe you tend to gravitate towards warm, welcoming colors -like reds and oranges, or perhaps you want to go with a design style that says modern, with just a touch of rustic elegance. Whichever your design style, say it loudly with a piece (or two) of art that reflects your eye for style, and your own personal taste.
