The warm tones of amaranth and sorghum are taking the lead this fall, with tassel-like flowers that can brighten up floral arrangements and tabletops. Decorate with them now and then plant them next spring if you want to grow your own for years to come.

Mum’s the Word
Chrysanthemums are a huge highlight of fall, and the Terrain team has their eye on “tonal, color-driven mums that run the spectrum from pale peach to deep burgundy and rust.” Use them in a varied arrangement or in a single-stem vase to highlight their beauty.
This fall is going raw, according to Terrain. “Black is always trending, but right now we love bringing it into living spaces with raw materials like wood and oxidized metals like iron. Whether it’s a primitive, blackened oak or ceramic serving ware in the kitchen, or a striking, black-based cloche on an entry table, this is a look we expect to have lasting power.
The one consistent theme for this fall? The unexpected. The Terrain team see their customers creating decor with a twist, like adding aged metal flower stems to a pair of doorstep planters, or hanging dried wreaths to welcome guests for the season.
A backyard bonfire is functional in more ways than one. In addition to adding a warm element to cool evenings, it also provides an outdoor cooking zone. Terrain’s newest arrivals include a marbled enamelware popcorn popper suited for an open fire (perfect for a fall party snack!) and a latticed log holder to keep firewood at-the-ready.
