These Fall Wedding Color Palettes Are Divine

When choosing Fall wedding color palettes, the choice goes far beyond the standard white and blush concoction. In nature, Fall is an abundance of stunning colors; a picture-perfect painting of golden leaves and burnished orange flora. What better place to draw Fall wedding inspiration from than nature itself?

Whether you are getting ready this Fall, next Fall, or just dream of saying those vows under the cool October sun, this inspiration post is dedicated to you! Here’s our favorite Fall wedding color palettes that are the sheer definition of ‘divine’.

Cranberry, Orange & Ivory

This palette is a softer take on typical Fall colors. Burnished oranges are replaced with softer, more tangerine-like hues. Cranberry stunningly reflects the seasonal berries, whilst the ivory tones keep it traditional.

Cranberry bridesmaid dresses are a stunning choice for an Autumnal wedding. Darker hues will compliment the Fall landscape and will also ensure that the classic, ivory bridal gown really stands out. After all, this day is all about that lady in white! Tie the bridal party together with seasonal bouquets with pops of tangy orange and dark, green foliage.

This mason jar seat embellishment is a must-do for wedding DIY-ers! The concoction consists of a glass jar, some ribbon and a bunch of Fall flora, making it an embellishment that is cheap and stunning in equal part.

For A Beauti-Fall Table

For a fresher look, begin by layering your tables with a clean, cream table cloth. Bring out cranberry and orange tones with a table runner and placemats. We recommend the damask style table runner and the floral paisley placemats.

Red, Rose & Green

Exchange those vows surrounded by the classic colors associated with love: red and rose. But this isn’t your standard Valentine’s Day chocolate box palette; deeper reds and duskier pinks give it a classier and more grown up edge. Add dark forest green into the mix and you are looking at a palette that is reminiscent of a Fall forest fairy tale.

A deep green suit is a wonderful alternative for any groom, whilst dusky pink lace is what dreams are made of for vintage-loving brides.

These lanterns look like they have been hand picked from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Red berries give an undeniable Fall edge to any classic red or pink rose adornment.

Everything’s Coming Up Roses

When styling your table in this stunning palette, we would suggest keeping deep green to an absolute minimum. Leafy centerpieces will make the green look more complimentary and less St Paddy’s day! As for rose and red, keep them in perfect harmony in soft table runners and floral embellished place mats.

If you’re special day is headed into the Winter months, this palette is one way to make it look slightly festive, without it looking like a literal chorus of ‘Deck The Halls’.

Despite the combination of both velvet and glistening gold, the cream base of the table layout above ensures it looks classy.

Burgundy is one of the few darker colors that can look truly uplifting and this is certainly true when it comes to bridesmaid dresses. Although darker bridesmaid dresses can be viewed as gothic, the plum undertones of this piece keeps it fresh and modern.

A gold cake? This beauty shows that anything is truly possible! Deep red flowers and perfectly placed leaved make it look almost too pretty to eat.

Despite gold being associated with Christmas, if used in moderation, it can look incredible. Vintage gold dining-ware and candles are a wonderful way to inject the color into your table layout without going overboard. The lace runner gives this table an extra innocent edge too.

Going For Gold

Out of all the Fall wedding color palettes, this one is undoubtedly the trickiest. However, keep the gold as an embellishment and the effect is perfect for Fall. Burgundy table runners with gold accents are a great way to do this.

Orange & Navy

If you are really looking for a color combination that your guests have never seen before, look no further than navy and orange! Because these two tones sit at exact opposites of the color wheel, they are incredibly complimentary. Plus: they are so Fall! Navy echoes the darkening skies, whilst orange refers to the falling leaves.

Stripes and navy are like salt and pepper: they always seem to come hand in hand. Despite navy and white stripes having a nautical edge, orange tones make them incredibly Autumnal. To ensure that you’re table doesn’t look too cluttered, keep the majority of it plain.

Navy has to be one of the most flattering colors out there and it makes a wonderful choice for Bridesmaid dresses.

In The Navy

You don’t have to be Einstein to know that orange is an incredibly brash color. To ensure it stays classy, decorate the majority of your tables navy and add bright splashes of orange in flowers and placemats.

These Cozy Homes Are SO Fall

How on Earth is it almost Halloween! As I sit here pondering on how this years seemed to go faster than a NASA space ship, I got thinking about how close Winter is. Cozy homes are becoming more and more appealing. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was some sort of scientific connection between falling leaves and the need for hot coco.

Now it’s over to you! Today, I am to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, whilst inspiring you for the colder months. I think you will admit that these cozy homes are so quintessentially Fall. Now go and get some chai tea, snuggle under the blanket and take a look at these cozy caverns…

Straight Out Of A 90s Family Movie

cozy homes that are perfect for Fall

This is the kind of home you expect to see in every 90s family movie that is based in Fall or Winter. The classic, white fireplace looks like it’s being photo shopped straight out of ‘Home Alone’.  Although you may think that the red sofas are a bit too ‘Deck the Halls’ to be Autumnal, the pale green walls tone them down and give them more of a harvest-like edge.

The rug, the footstool and the mantelpiece are all so 90s, but I think that is why we love it! It provides a sense of childhood nostalgia, of chilly nights snuggled up by the fire next to Holly the Border Collie. And that, my friends, is what makes you feel all warm inside!

Get The Look

I can’t sell you a fire, or even start one for that matter! But I can recommend a stunning combination of red and apple green table runners and pillow covers that will give you the color-scheme reminiscent of the one above.

This bedroom is one big fat materialized oxymoron!! Silver, possibly the coldest color known to the human eye, is padded and cushioned to absolute snug perfection. Ah!! The lashes of mustard add a big Fall stamp on top of this high-sheen silver too.

Although silver isn’t what comes to mind when we think cozy homes, it really does work well in this case. The red-toned wood, lashings of cushions and warmly-dimmed lighting certainly help too! We certainly could imagine snuggling up in here and watching Halloween flicks. Pass the popcorn!

Bouncy cushions, a pop of mustard and seem silky silver are what you need to recreate this Autumnal juxtaposition .

This conglomeration of stereotypical Fall prints and textures is about as cozy as it gets! With an overriding palette of grey-toned beige, this dark sofa is uplifted by red far isle cushions, neutral grid prints and classic tartan. The glowing candles make a gorgeous centerpiece that have us craving crackling logs, fluffy blankets and egg nog.

Wintery prints and beige tones will give you this country, cottage style kind of look.

I don’t think that anything looks more appealing for a cold and cloudy day than this! Snuggle up in a knitted blanket in front of a coal or wood fire, or indulge in the glowing atmosphere of a fake fire. The hanging lights add a modern, festive touch. But if you have an open flame, don’t try this at home! The tassel adorned blanket and textured cushions add even of a cozy air. All that’s missing is a warm cup of coco and a furry pal!

Alongside a chunky knitted blanket, layer up printed cushions in cute, Fall prints.

If the thought of a cozy hallway makes you snicker, look no further than this Autumnal hallway above. The harvest-themed centerpiece stunningly combines the rawness of corn with the luxurious silk ribbon. The tall candles and fruit bowl give it a comforting and elegant vibe. This is a hallway you could see in your Grandmother and Sister’s house alike and that is what makes it so comforting.

Now that you’ve indulged in these cozy homes, it’s time to update your home for Fall! Whether you inject chunky blankets, harvest-themed decor or just an Autumnal printed cushion here and there, you are sure to feel instantly warmer!

Embellishments Explained: From Beading To Batik

Here at Banarsi Designs, we love a good embellishment. From florals to sparkles, there is something so intricate and unique about embellishments; they have the ability to truly transform a piece of home decor or fashion alike.

If you’re reading this, I could bet my bottom dollar that you can’t get enough of embellishments either? But do you really know the different between embroidery and applique? Those decor lovers who think that batik is a food: this post is specially dedicated to you!

Today we give you a little insight into the most common embellishing techniques. Whether you are a decor junkie, or maybe want to try your hand at embellishing yourself, this post will give you the perfect insight!

I remember attempting to create a batik cushion at school. It’s safe to say that clumsy little me ended up with a waxy mess . However, if done well, batik can be a unique and stunning embellishment.

Batik is an ancient, Indonesian tradition that involves placing hot wax on fabric. The wax is applied prior to dying the fabric and the parts covered with wax resist the dye and remain the original color of the fabric. This can be repeated over and over to create multi-colored and stunning multi-faceted designs.

As opposed to traditional batik, which derives from the Indonesian word for ‘dot’, modern Batik can be done in many ways. Artists are known to use etching techniques, stencils and various tools.

Traditional batik patterns vary from region to region, with Inland Javanese Batik often consisting of earthy colors, with diamond and floral shapes. Coastal Javanese Batik is colorful and is inspired by the wide range of cultures that infiltrated the country via trading. Motifs were often inspired by nature and included European-style flowers and peacocks.

Shop Batik Style

Although batik itself can be expensive and hard to find, batik inspired prints can be just as stunning! Our chic jacquard table runner echoes traditional batik styles perfectly.

The most well-known of all embellishment techniques, embroidery consists of decorating via artistic stitching using a needle and thread. Although the definite origin of embroidery is unknown, evidence of this decorative technique date back to 5th-3rd Century AD. Fast forward thousands of years and embroidery is a mass-produced embellishment technique that is seen on a range of home decor and fashion products alike.

Some more luxurious pieces are still embroidered by hand, such as our range of hand embroidered home decor products.

Hand Painting

Hand painting is literally as it sounds: applying paint to a piece of fabric as you would a canvas.

Fabric painting is one of the most ancient embellishing techniques and can be traced to as far back as 3000 B.C. Originally associated with royalty, fabric painting used colors from plants and animals and pieces were gifted to elders as a form of respect.

By 200AD fabric painting had become mainstream and was available all over the world. Fabric painting still remains popular as a form of art today, however, hand painted textiles are more of a rarity.

The best thing about hand painted pieces is that exactly no two pieces are the same! Add a little bit of luxury and uniqueness to your home with our hand painted deluxe accent pillow cover and our hand painted deluxe floral table runner.

Applique quite literally means ‘application.’ This embellishment technique involves applying one piece of fabric on top of another.

Although these types of embellishments have been around since the start of sewing, they are traditionally associated with Benim in South Africa. It is also commonly used in quilting.

Several types of techniques are used in applique. The first is straight stitch, in which the embellishment fabric is attached 20-30mm from the edge. Satin stitch attaches the piece all around, overlapping the edge, Finally, in reverse applique, the attached materials are sewn together then cut away.

Beading refers to the attachment of beads, either individual, or in strings, to a piece of fabric. Bead embroidery refers to when the beads are added as a final embellishment after the fabric has been produced, whereas bead knitting and bead crochet are embellishment techniques that are woven into the fabric during production.

Bead embroidery dates back to ancient African cultures over 72,000 years ago, where it was used on a variety of clothing and textiles. There has also been evidence of beading embellishments in Russia as far back as 30,000 years ago.

Beaded pieces are always just that little bit special! Our hand embroidered pillow cover combines intricate embroidery with beautiful beading.
