For my mantel I wanted to go with a natural elegance... white pumpkins, pinecones and acorns collected by precious little hands while apple picking and burlap... simple items that remind me of this season.
Do you feel anxious in a yellow room? Does the color blue make you feel calm and relaxed? Color theorists have long understood how color can dramatically affect moods, feelings and
emotions. Interesting therapy studies have shown that:
Red was used to stimulate the body and mind and to increase circulation, Yellow was thought to stimulate the nerves and purify the body, Orange was used to heal the lungs and to increase energy levels. Blue was believed to soothe illnesses and treat pain. Indigo shades were thought to alleviate skin problems.

I love fall colors but wanted to decorate my house with more neutral tones for the season. So instead I brought in a lot of texture to bring warmth and added outdoor items for the mantel to bring a more fall-esque feel.
