“The most wonderful time of the year” usually refers to Christmas, but I’ve always thought of it as the perfect description for autumn, too. There is so much to love about the South during these months: leaves tinged with red, rust, and golden hues; spectacular displays of multicolored pumpkins and gourds; a crackling fire on the first truly cool evening. The charm and cheer of fall seem to find their way into everyday occasions and special gatherings, from cozy Sunday suppers to elegant dinner parties, setting a delightfully mellow mood.In this annual celebration of autumn throughout the South, we share with you our favorite ideas to make the most of the season.

accents of autumn

Natural Treasures Draw inspiration from outside your door, and craft a still life display on a rustic cake stand by grouping foraged materials under a glass cloche. Whether using a slice of wood, crisp leaves, dried mushrooms, or reindeer moss, the options are endless. Borrow from the harvest for a simple centerpiece, and plant a mix of black-eyed Susan, lavender, and lime-green coleus in a ceramic bowl. Conceal the dirt with moss and then surround the arrangement with a layer of luscious pears. Give a favorite bench a quick makeover by fashioning a fall-inspired pillow cover finished off with a couple of silk leaves.

southern charm

Treasure Trove Designer Libby Greene began working with Julie and David Chadwick of Birmingham, Alabama, as soon as the couple broke ground on their home, and years later, the project is still ongoing. “There’s nothing quick about finding antiques,” the designer explains. “It’s like a treasure hunt—a daily treasure hunt. I love to find unusual pieces that could tell a story, that make you wonder where they came from.” Upon entrance, a soft palette extends a gracious greeting with both distinctive heirloom appeal and refined feminine flair. Over time, the team filled the study with fixtures meant to create a cozy ambience—from the aged chestnut walls and mantel to a tufted leather wingback chair, tapestry pillow, and Oriental rug. “I love incorporating antiques because it gives a room a…

family style

The homeowners’ wish list included ample, durable seating for their high-traffic living room and their designers’ signature light, bright fabrics. Neutral tones enhance the room, while custom pillows and dashes of black and brass add a perfect dose of modern style. A mix of patterns and prints helps keep the overall look approachable and interesting. Au Naturel The Pearson family chose the firm A Well Dressed Home to ensure their Texas abode would reflect their personal style. “What inspired us the most was the home itself,” say designers Emily Hewett and Allison Walker. “It exudes a traditional charm that we knew we wanted to carry throughout.” Form & Function Located just off the entry, the Pearsons’ office needed to be tailored yet fully functional. The design team selected a…
