“It was a beautiful bright autumn day, with the air like cider and the sky so blue you could drown in it.” A quote from the book Outlander could not have described my color story better (admittedly I’m a fan)! I pulled the blue right out of the sky and the gold straight from the falling leaves. Fall decorating with blues and golds has never been so chic.
Many of you know by now that my degree was actually in Fashion Design , so creating a striking color pallet with interesting patterns and texture is in my blood. My goal is to always create a home that feels cozy and inviting while maintaining an elegant yet edgy look. This year I brought the blue and gold with a splash of fashion influence to my fall home tour.
The bold pillow combination was my jumping off point. I brought in a rich navy floral pillow, a textured light blue woven pillow, a golden velvet lumbar, and a touch of leopard because its always so chic. I don’t think you would find this bold marriage of patterns and color on any furniture show room floor, but I love how it visually jumps right off the sofa. The rest of the home just kinda came together after the “marriage” of these pillows lol.
Adding layers of comfort is always a good idea as the weather gets colder. Layers are not only reserved for throw pillows and throw blankets, but also for art, books, trays, and boxes. Take my coffee table for instance, do you see all the layered boxes and trays, each holding their own pattern, color, and texture. These design layers bring warmth and comfort too.

My fall mantel features layers of modern art, framed script, and a large golden antique mirror. Although the art doesn’t feature blue at all, the rich color tones still carry the feeling and remind me of falling leaves. Golden wheat stacks tied with blue ribbon and textured blue vases filled with fall foliage finish the look.
To create the fall mantel you will need:
Antique mirror (mine is 5ft size)
Fall decorating with blue and gold – Entry way & kitchen
Here is a peek into my entry way. I love changing up the table decor to greet each season. This year I added these gorgeous colorful autumn branches to my large ginger jar. A golden brass sculpture stands atop a black fashion book and a poured some metallic acorns in the black urn. Although my entry doesn’t feature any blue, it does carry a similar color palette and aesthetic as the rest of the interior.
To avoid the look of “fall exploded in my home” create little vignettes that nod to the season. You don’t need to have a fireplace spewing with pumpkins (like seen on pinterest) to make an impact. Try grouping together interesting objects of 3 or 5 that feature pumpkins, wheat, fall foliage, books, acorns, candles, & seasonal fruit to name a few. This technique works esp well on entry tables, side tables, and on kitchen counter tops. Here are some examples from my kitchen. Click Here for all kitchen sources and details.
I created an easy fall table scape that coordinates with my over-all blue and gold theme. I’ll be sharing a video next week on my IG TV so make sure you are following me there. I hope you found this fall tour both inspiring and helpful. Please tag me in @remingtonavenue with your fall home inspired here. Now here is a little peek at the fall table coming to the blog soon!
