Falling for Autumn Decor

Posted by author Real Sliding Hardware publish date

There’s a chill in the air and the days are getting shorter.  This sets the scene for decorative inspiration and creativity around the house.  Let Real Sliding Hardware spark your imagination!

Find an old basket, a bundle of pine cones and a string of little white lights. Place the pinecones and lights into the basket while carefully concealing the lights. Hit the switch and the lights will give the basket of pine cones a warm glow for a festive interior or exterior accent.

For savvy DIY’ers, handmade tree trunk candle holders always impress guests. If you have a downed tree this is a great way to repurpose the wood. Trees with interesting bark color or texture are great! Ultimately, you would need to mortise out the top of the wood chunk just big enough to hold a tea light candle. Vary the heights of the candle holders for a visually balanced look. Place the candles on a buffet or dining room table staggering them in height. Handmade candles such as this will add warmth and a sense of peace into the home.

Rustic barn doors by RSH are a great design element to incorporate into your home this time of year. Decorative and functional, there are so many design possibilities. Rugged, distressed barn doors can bring antiquity and a sense of heritage to the home. Rustic Alder features naturally occurring knots and grooves original to the wood.  Rustic Alder can add to an already rustic space or bring a rugged edge to a not-so rustic decor.  Not surprisingly, this door is a RSH favorite.  

Our other favorite door is the Reclaimed. All of our reclaimed doors originated as old barns and vintage outbuildings from across Washington and Oregon. They offer a history and authenticity that is hard to come by these days. With original nail holes and distress marks revealing the evidence of a “previous” life, these doors are genuine. They are the real deal.

Whatever you have planned this season, try incorporating a personal touch into your autumn décor. It’ll warm your heart and your home. So get inspired! Get creative! Then get with us on PinterestInstagramHouzzFacebook and Twitter!
