When we think of fall, we imagine spaces layered in rich textures, sun-washed colors, and loads of comfort. One of the easiest ways to achieve a fresh, fall look is to incorporate airy and organic accents. If you’re ready to say goodbye to summer and breathe new life into your home, follow along as we share our favorite ways to style your room with these natural elements.
Focus on Natural Woods
We love using organic wood tones because they instantly make the space feel warm and inviting. Don’t be afraid to mix various wood tones in your room. Allowing a mix of organic woods will create a layered look that lends just the right amount of texture and depth.
Botanicals and Houseplants
When it comes to natural elements, botanicals and houseplants are a no brainer. As the weather gets cooler we begin to spend more time inside, so why not bring the outdoors in? There are so many ways to bring your home to life, from fresh plants to faux.
One of our favorite tricks is to mix the two together. Try mixing faux stems with fresh cut flowers, dried branches or in bunches to make a striking fall statement.
Weave in Woven Pieces
Woven textures may seem like a summer staple, but when the weather cools we love to use these materials as a way to layer in natural warmth. In this dining room, we warmed up the space with our Blakely Dining Chairs, which are hand woven in double seagrass rope. To tie the look together we used our Ventura Woven Placemats on the table.
Better in Leather
It’s no secret that we are big fans of leather. We love how this natural material adds in warmth and masculinity to a space. Not only is it beautiful, but it’s inherently kid and pet friendly since the texture is very easy to clean and usually requires a little dish soap and water. Another perk of leather is that it ages beautifully overtime, making it the perfect investment piece for your space.
How do you keep an all-neutral room from feeling stark? Spice it up with warm terra cotta and earthy textures. In this room we mixed various natural elements using terra cotta vases, textured throw pillows, a woven tray, and faux stems. Although each piece is completely different in tone and texture, they all blend together to create a harmonious balance.

Thank you for the kind words! We love helping everyone find their inner decorator with helpful posts like this. Glad you found it insightful.
Just beautiful! At this point I believe Ballard leaves West Elm, Pottery Barn, and even RH in the dust. I’ve been a fan for years and your last couple of catalogs are spectacular.
Thank you for the kind words, Barbara! So glad you like them.
