Fill your home with the spirit of the harvest season—starting at its very heart. With the smell of cinnamon floating from the oven and the colors of autumn everywhere you turn, the kitchen is arguably the most important space to embrace fall. And with the Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to add in a few last-minute touches that will welcome friends and family with a little extra coziness. Let this collection of our favorite autumn kitchens inspire your space.
Neutral farmhouse style is the perfect backdrop for fall’s most iconic colors—and this cozy space proves it! With pumpkins piled in and around the sink, on their way to various displays, a simple wreath, a spray of wheat, and a seasonally scented candle are more than enough to infuse the room with warmth!
Bright and Bold
Don’t want to go overboard with the décor? Turn up the saturation in a handful of details—like the vibrant florals and drinkware used here—and create a showstopping focal point. A few bold branches arranged in a colorful vase will do the trick!
Pumpkins are iconic, but they’re far from the only motif the season has to offer. Red-and-gold apples are a crisp, classic element that are right at home among timeless design. Topped off with a few foraged branches with berries still attached, this display is the definition of timeless.
Feeling a touch more neutral this year? Take a cue from this white-heavy space that incorporates color in impactful ways. Pumpkins collected under a cloche and a muted wreath on the range hood are fun details that are easy to implement in your own home.
A Fresh Take on Fall
Lean into your kitchen’s existing color palette when selecting your fall décor. Green gourds and white pumpkins are right at home here, alongside a few warm orange details. Consider fresh floral elements for a little extra charm.
Keep it Simple
If your kitchen is already filled to the brim with cozy, a few thoughtful touches may be all you need to make your gatherings special. Complement vintage touches and a natural color palette with a tablecloth in a rich shade, a pail of freshly picked apples, or even a bowl piled with pears. Add a glowing candle for that extra touch of ambience, and you’ve got a kitchen that will have your guests lingering well after Thanksgiving dinner ends.
