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.
