What Colors To Use For Your Fall Mantel

Think of yummy plums, golden yellows, gorgeous spicy oranges, and warm browns as a good color palette to start with.
Here are a few of my favorite colors to select from to get a beautiful autumn look:
Warm earth tones: These include burnt oranges and pumpkin hues, deep reds and burgundies, rich browns, olive greens and forest greens, and mustard yellows and goldenrod.
Neutrals: These include cream or ivory for a neutral base, taupe or tan for a warm and earthy touch, and dark gray or charcoal for contrast.
Metallic accents: Incorporate metallic accents like bronze, copper, or gold to add a touch of elegance and shine to your fall mantel.
