Happy first day of fall everyone! Though I will certainly be posting some classic, rustic autumn inspiration boards this season, right now I’m really having fun playing with the idea of what works for fall. Can sweet pale pink be part of an autumn palette? I’ve paired it with cream and, most importantly, sepia, to give it a vintage look that would make for a stunning fall color scheme. Imagine fall leaves and acorns dusted with gold, rich textiles in shades of brown and pink, and I think you’ll see what I’m aiming for here. And though I sort of imagined this as a tea party wedding reception, it would certainly work for a luncheon, sit-down dinner, or dessert and champagne celebration.

Mood: sweet nostalgia with an autumn touch
Palette: sweet pink, sepia gold, cream
