Here in Northern Hemisphere we are about to celebrate a big season change, Fall is at the door 🙂
How do you celebrate the change of season? We used to highlight it with some vignettes all around the house but since we moved into a smaller place, this fun habit has been a bit left aside… And I miss it, a lot! So why not starting it back and get some inspiration from the past and its eclectic style!
60’s and 70’s were really deep into brownish and orange colors , just think of the dishes set that your mom were using! I grew up surrounded by brown plates, brown mugs, brown fondue sets, brown Pyrex, brown pots… Sometimes, often, adorned with orange flowers and details… Lolll!
Remember these? Doesn’t they feel like Fall? They were everyday dishes at one point…
Fall is the perfect time of the year to display your own collection! Centerpieces, Thanksgiving dinner, display cabinet… It might also the perfect time to switch your daily dishes if you have more than one set! Look for dark, warm colors that screams COMFORT and coziness!
Some ideas from the Bazaar here and here…
Plaid, velvet, crochet, corduroy, thick fabrics of different colors, I have so many souvenirs of the mix and match patterns and textures that we had at home! I have this specific living room curtain in mind, so thick that it looks like a sofa fabric loll! Beige with brown and orange stripes… Something really similar to this:
Do you have a Fall set of curtains? Or maybe some vintage pillows or a thick throw that you can spread over your sofa and get that instant seasonal vintage twist? Play it soft, don’t go overboard, focus on these rich autumnal shades like burnt oranges, chocolate browns, burgundy reds, forest greens…
Pssst, we have a little something for you, not listed yet but if you keep your eyes open, you might see it appears online really really soon!
Tinted glass, does it ring a bell? I remember my mom displaying a big amber glass bowl on the middle of the table when she was having company… She used to fill it with chips 🙂 Popular colors back in that time were: brown, green, red and orange… (lots of blue too). You can go anymore Fall that that! If you don’t own some tinted glass pieces, you early need to get onboard now cause they are soooo vintage and soooo 70’s! Look for Indiana glass, this is the style you’re looking for!
Different shapes and sizes are still available, look for some accent pieces that you’ll place here and there: centrepiece, console table, library, living room side table…
Looking for some? We got your back with these three. First one is already listed, second and third one, you’ll have to stay tuned for the fall collection but they’re on their way and we are announcing them in primeur to give you an avant-gout of what’s coming up 😉
And what about a flowery or scenery porcelain piece to display in a bathroom, a guest room or a dining room?
Bold and original, Fall vibes for sure!

Have fun with materials: old brass, enamel iron, recycled wood… These all have a vintage look and can easily be used in a fall decor due to their roughness. It might be time for some little diy projects or upcycling! Think outside of the box and give a second life to this old unpolished tarnished brass tray and fill it with cone pines, dried leaves, branches and nature finds… Like this:
And what about this enamel pitcher beautifully settled for fall:
