Draping Fabric for Fall Decor

I love fabric and using it to create a mood or season is so easy to do and really enhances all of your decor.  Look through your scarfs and shawls or create a few table toppers that you can use in unusual ways to add some fall color and do some soft scaping to enhance your displays.  Here I have used a shawl to add a little interest and drama to this vignette.




A table topper square scrunched on the coffee table adds a ton of interest and color.




A table runner achieves the same effect. 




Mandy @ Wise Designs and Inspiration uses a shaw on her buffet to add color and interest to her vignette. So much prettier than just bare wood and more interesting than a straight tablerunner.



You have all seen that I use table squares on my dining table all the time.



Here I've used one of my favorite shawls and created a totally different look.


Same shawl and a scarf laying on an ottoman for added color and pattern.


Two different scarfs for a totally different look.



A peek at a tabletop that I am working on, again usuing a scarf.


Look through your stash of fabric, your old scarfs, shawls or whatever you have and see how you can add a little fall color or change things up with a little soft scaping in your own home.

  8. Those are fantastic looks, Marty. It really is surprising how the addition of the colors and patterns in the scarves gives the vignette a warmer look. I especially like the second one with the fern and globe. It seems too soon to decorate for fall because the temperature is still so high here but the calendar says it's time so I will get started, soon. Shannon

  10. I love it when folks use table squares, especially when they have gorgeous tables like yours, Marty! My dining table is an ugly brass and glass monstrosity from the eighties, so I like to cover mine completely with a tablecloth.

  12. I love the way you use fabric in your vignettes. I've tried. Mine usually looks as if I accidentally left a scarf on the table.

  29. Being able to work with fabric is an art form. You, Marty, are an artist. As for Fall Decor, I'm still in denial, even if the leaves are already turning colour. ;)

    Great ideas.
