Blue Green Kitchen

Give your kitchen a simple but stylish facelift this fall by bringing in a color palette of soft blues, greens and rich yellows. You can easily give the high-traffic room a subtle makeover with the help of some great accessories. Perk up the walls with some pretty wall tiles that can be arranged in a mini gallery in any space that needs some color. A rustic-chic striped tablecloth and pitcher in blue balance out a rich ocher serving tray perfect for entertaining this fall.

Our picks: Wall tiles (, $49), farmers market basket (, $20), tablecloth (, $88), pitcher (, $30), serving tray (, $40)


Blue Green bedroom

Take a summer-to-fall approach in the bedroom by switching out overtly summery colors and accessories for those that will work better once the cooler weather hits. We love the idea of an ikat print duvet in a warm, sunny yellow that's just deep enough to also work for fall. Add some vases in blue, green and yellow and some bold pillar candles, and tie everything together with an understated wall clock for a look that's refreshing but seasonally appropriate.

Our picks: Ikat duvet cover (, $89 to $119), flared top vases (, $19 to $24), blanket (, $130), pillar candles (, $11 to $15), wall clock (, $50)


Blue green bathroom

Balance out darker, more fall-ready hues with lighter colors for a bathroom facelift that works for any season. Since you can never have too many hooks (especially in a busy house), line one wall with three or four in a coppery hue for extra towel storage. Add some golden towels to warm up the space and then bring in some cooler tones with a wall cabinet, bath mat and shower curtain that play well with all of the colors you're working with.

Our picks: Ironwork hook (, $14), towels (, $38 to $78), paisley shower curtain (, $69), wall cabinet (, $13), bath mats (, $12)
