Looking for blue and orange Fall decor ideas?
Here are four tips on how to harmonize these two colors when decorating for fall.
Orange is a color that can be a bit gaudy.
Especially if you like neutral decor, adding a striking color like orange can be tricky.
But I want to show you how combining blue and orange adds a majestic, beautiful look.
It’s like they were always meant to be.
The colors in my home are blue, white, green, and grey.
Having the backdrop already blue, adding orange to my home was easy.
And if you decorate with blue, too, this will be an easy way to decorate for fall.
Tip No. 1: Add little orange pumpkins here or there.
Getting a pack of faux pumpkins, like these ones, and putting them around your home can be simple but sweet.
Like in the photo above, I place one textured orange pumpkin inside a creamer like these ones here.
And a beautiful orange maple leaf tucked behind it to give it impact.
I’m linking some pumpkins that are soft velvet. (The photos are links.)
The velvet ones have a nice texture.
I don’t know if you love the feel of things. I sure do.
This set below also has grey and white pumpkins. I love the shape of them.
These make a nice change from the plastic. But any will do.
Another way to add miniature pumpkins is to place them on the dining table.
At each place setting, put a single pumpkin.
Setting a simple table is a goal, especially when having a large gathering.
The pumpkin can easily be set aside when guests are ready to eat.
But it gives a nice nod toward the season and makes for a beautiful fall-decorated table.
Another great way to incorporate orange mini pumpkins is by putting them on a tiered tray.
I like adding orange things like the “Hello Pumpkin” sign and the stuffed striped pumpkin with thick white rope for the pumpkin stem.
I bought the stuffed pumpkin from Hobby Lobby a few years ago, but here is a cute plaid pumpkin that would be so stinkin’ cute! (The photo is a link.)
On top of the tier tray, I added my favorite blue teacup and saucer.
It’s an unexpected addition that is whimsical. I love that when decorating for fall.
That leads to tip No. 2: Use blue dishes to enhance orange.
In the photo above, I tucked a saucer in the back of the “Hello Pumpkin” sign.
Do you see how it makes the orange pop?
This is a perfect illustration of how well these two colors interact.
They are perfect for each other.
Here is a link to a similar “Hello Pumpkin” sign here.
Adding blue to enhance orange, or vice versa, is so beautiful.
Especially since my home is already decorated with blue.
Adding orange to what’s already there is so easy!
Like the single pumpkin in the above photo.
That leads to tip No. 3: Decorate for fall by adding pops of orange leaves or berries.
This is super easy.
Finding faux orange maple leaves and berries this time of year online is easier than in person.
I have run into empty shelves by waiting too long.
If that happens, here is a blog post sharing three simple last-minute fall ideas.
I love adding orange berries & leaves to a bouquet of white hydrangeas or roses.
It’s a seamless way to decorate from summer to fall by keeping neutral-colored florals and adding a pop of orange.
Tip No. 4: Change out wall art.
My wall is already blue.
It kind of dictates how I decorate my living room.
I have tried other colors, but it just doesn’t work out for some reason.
It is a perfect color against my blue wall.
I found some beautiful Autumn prints for under $5.00 on Etsy.
Afterward, I set up the size I wanted online at my local FedEx store and purchased them for under $1. Now, that’s affordable!
The bigger 16×20 print is a poster. It costs $17.00 (September 2023 price).
I roll up the prints every season and put them away to use the following year.
One of my favorite pieces of art is this one of a Victorian house.
I found it on eBay for $50.
It’s a print. It’s not the real deal, but I love how it looks in my Victorian Farmhouse-styled home.
What I love is the one tree that is turning color for fall.
On top of the dresser is a single orange pumpkin alongside a blue Currier and Ives platter, which completes the look.
I hope these four tips gave you ideas on how to mix orange and blue.
They are a perfect pair.
