Kitchens are for more than just cooking, being the room where you talk, laugh, and share memories with the ones you love. The coziest place in your house deserves to embrace the seasons by bringing in warm and rich fall colors like chocolate brown, golden yellow, and burnt orange. The changing colors of the leaves can become the perfect inspiration to warm up your favorite room of the house. Use raw wooden accents and textures like hay or cornhusks to represent the changing moods of the season.
Get in the spirit of fall by embracing rustic touches, like dried wheat bundles, twigs, or corn husks. Use pumpkins, gourds, and squash to decorate kitchen tables and countertops, pairing them with coordinating florals and foliage. If you can find it outside when the temperatures start to drop, then it belongs in your cozy fall kitchen. So light some candles and bundle up!
The air is crisp and the nights are shorter. Here are 10 Ways to Get Your Kitchen Ready for Fall.
1.) Gourds & Pumpkins
Gardens in the fall bring an abundance of unique offerings, including different types of pumpkins, gourds, and squash. Pick up an assortment at your local supermarket and then have fun pairing them with various fall offerings, like warm-toned foliage and seasonal fruit. Arrange them in a bowl and set them on your table for a centerpiece, or set them on countertops next to cozy candles,
2.) Fresh seasonal fruit
Seasonal fall fruits like pears, plums, apples, and figs make great arrangements on your kitchen table or countertops. Create a fall fruit bowl and place it on your kitchen counter to bring in the feeling of the season, or use fall fruit in an arrangement with other decorations to create a centerpiece for your kitchen table.
3.) Fall florals and foliage
In the fall we can guarantee that the leaves will change colors and the chilly wind will strip the tree branches bare. This drastic changing of the seasons and the decor that comes with it pairs surprisingly well with florals, lending an unexpected touch of softness to your kitchen. Collect fall foliage from your neighborhood or supermarket, then pair elegant florals like roses or hydrangeas. It's easy, fun, and inexpensive to arrange your own fall-themed bouquets to use as centerpieces around your kitchen.
4.) White pumpkins
White pumpkins are a great blank canvas to bring the spirit of fall into your home, providing a subtle touch of the season without overwhelming the palette. White pumpkins pair well with almost any fall-themed decor. Pair with fall foliage, twigs, florals, and cozy candles for an instant centerpiece, or simply place them on kitchen surfaces like countertops, kitchen tables, or on top of your appliances.
White pumpkins are a great blank canvas to decorate your pumpkins too. You can even use them to write quotes that remind us to be thankful this fall season.
5.) Classic fall colors
Fall introduces a lot of earth-friendly tones, and these tones can be used to easily add coziness to a kitchen that is starting to cool down. Colors like burnt orange, chocolate brown, olive green, and mustard yellow are all fall-appropriate colors that will instantly bring warmth to your kitchen. Most fall colors can be found in nature, so anything goes to make your fall-kitchen your own.

Fall is a great time to use natural herbs as decorations in your kitchen. Keep bundles of herbs like rosemary, thyme, or fresh sage around your kitchen to use as a decoration, for cooking, or simply as an organic air freshener.
