The natural, rustic look of terra cotta pots is such a sweet way to add charm to annual flowers in the Spring season. But terra cotta pots shouldn't just be relegated to the warmer months. There are other ways you can use these pots inside your home — planted and not — throughout the year. Keep clicking for a few ideas.
They may know how to grow the lushest shrubs, but even green thumbs are known to break a pot every now and then. When a terra cotta pot bites the dust, don't toss it in the trash. Take the shards and turn them into something useful. Break the bits into small pieces (carefully of course!) and add them to the bottom of other planters. The broken shards will help with drainage and keep plants perfectly moisturized!

Donna Karan's Fall collection is the epitome of Autumn. Warm browns, vivid rust, olive green, terra cotta, mustard, and burgundy were the plush colors the designer used to spice up her line. Now is the perfect time to draw inspiration from it and fill our closets with similar pieces. You can even get inspired from the changing colors of the leaves outside. Stick to one or two colors at most. I've found that gray tights are the perfect accent to any autumnal color. If you're still frazzled, study the Fall collections, see my suggestions below, and be full of Fall.
