Fall Decorating: An Autumn-Inspired Kitchen for Your Philly Home

After just a few days enjoying autumn outdoors in Philly, you’ll probably have plenty of inspiration about how to spice up your kitchen. Celebrate the season, and give some of these fall decorating ideas a try!

Philadelphia is one of those US cities that experiences all the seasonal benefits that come with the autumn season. When October or November rolls around, red and orange leaves fall gently from the trees, the streets fill with their colors, and a cool autumn breeze whistles through every city block. When you get that “fall feeling,” you might be inspired to inject some of it into your home decor — and the kitchen is a good place to start. Here are a few simple fall decorating tips for how to add the zest and beauty of the autumn season to your Philly home.

Take an Autumn Art Stroll
Look around your kitchen. What kind of art do you have hanging in this room? Chances are, when you’re home, you spend a great many hours of your time in your kitchen, so it’s worth refreshing the decor. This season, consider reviving your kitchen with some fall-inspired art.

If you’re looking for decor ideas, take a stroll through the art district on Broad Street or attend a fall fair, like the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Showl on Walnut Street, to find great art. Focus on art that centers on autumn scenery to bring that fall theme into your kitchen.

Give Your Kitchen a Fall Paint Job
One of the simplest yet most effective ways to change your kitchen’s appearance is to repaint it. Pick a set of autumn paint colors inspired by warm earth tones of falling leaves, and use that to redo your kitchen with a fall theme. Such autumn hues include browns, yellows, oranges, bold reds, and soft blues (to match the crisp fall skies).

E-A-G-L-E-S Eagles!

Football season begins every fall. Whether you were born and raised in Philadelphia or you’re a transplant, odds are that you’re going to be paying a lot of attention to sports scores during this time of year. Eagles fever takes over Philadelphia, energizing this city with team spirit — so why not add some of that Eagles-inspired energy to your own kitchen? You’re not limited to plastering Eagles logos on your fridge (although you certainly could). If you’re looking for a more subtle way to root for your favorite team, add infuse your kitchen with “Eagles green” (sometimes called midnight green) decor, maybe as the color for the backsplash of your countertop.

Bring the Pumpkin Patch Home
As holidays go, Halloween is a big deal in the Philadelphia area. At this time of year, you can find everything from Halloween pub crawls to haunted houses that stretch all the way to Northeast Philly. So add a bit of Halloween flair to your home kitchen. For instance, you might use a ceramic pumpkin to hold your kitchen tools. Your Halloween-tinged decor might even inspire you to bake a delicious pumpkin pie.

After just a few days enjoying autumn outdoors in Philly, you’ll probably have plenty of inspiration about how to spice up your kitchen. Celebrate the season, and give some of these fall decorating ideas a try!
