With the chaos of back to school behind us, and October slowly inching up—everyone finds time to pause and look at nature’s masterpieces. One of my favorite seasons is fall -the rustic oranges, deep auburns, and rich yellows of the leaves and the gold light of the autumn sun are so inspiring! I can't wait for the leaves to change! If only the leaves stayed this way for longer…they seem here and gone in an instant.That is why I love to bring these colors into my home through artwork! I get to enjoy the beauty of the short season, for longer—and bring the energy from the outdoors inside.
What is your favorite part of this season? Is it the colors or the energy? The memories of jumping into a pile of leaves when you were young? Or maybe it’s the calm, quietness of cool days, when we cuddle up to the fireplace with a good book. Here are a few of my favorite contemporary representational artworks. Each piece adds glowing warmth to the space.
If representational works aren’t for you, then an autumn abstract is! The vibrant yellow with splashes of blue remind me of leaves playing in the wind. Pieces like this can really add an energetic and inviting quality to the space!
To really make a statement with the beautiful and bold reds of fall pair them with a dark wall and watch how the artwork instantly pops! This elegant contrast creates a beautiful contemporary space that is both warm and welcoming.
