Warm and Inviting Finishing Touches
Style Guide: 10 Essential Autumn Dining Table Accessories
Leaves are tumbling from the sky, and temperatures are growing crisp enough to leave your windows open at night. You may have already invited a pumpkin-related ingredient into a recipe, and you’re likely to invite family and good friends over for brunch, a Halloween party, perhaps even a Thanksgiving celebration.
There’s something about the way the light changes at this time of year that calls for warm colors rather than cool. Chocolate and copper and burnt orange and burnished apple add cozy touches.
If you’re looking to shift décor gears for the season, here are 10 easy-to-add accessories to style your dining room and kitchen this fall:
1. Large Monterey Copper Bowl:
Because those fresh-picked apples (or fresh-fallen pine cones) can’t go in just any old bowl.
A countertop essential, all the more essential at this time of year, when baking utensils should be kept within reach.
Wicker, rattan and all things made of woven grass are back, and this basket will hold everything from cookbooks to sweet potatoes.
For tossing over a dining room bench or the back of a barstool.
Elevate a place setting with a napkin ring hand-made from a timeless, earthy material.
Ticking stripe evokes easygoing country cottage charm year-round; in red, it contributes a seasonal nostalgia that will carry your table settings from the Fourth of July right on through Christmas.
In 12”, 20”, 30” or 36”, this is a classic dining accessory that makes passing the pie easier and even more fun this time of year. (No longer available in Acacia, as shown above)
Hot toddy, apple cider, whiskey straight-up. Whatever your autumn libation of choice, rest it on one of these.
With so many soups to make and cookies to bake, this spoon rest will keep your counter tidy.
