6 Decor Trends You Can't Miss This Fall
Chunky sweaters, falling leaves, and pumpkin-spiced coffees … fall is definitely in the air! If you’re ready to pack your beachy, summer-themed furnishings away and start to warm up your home for the season, there are a few key trends you can’t ignore. From simple pillow swaps to an entire style overhaul, there are a variety of ways that you can add the perfect hint of autumn to any room. With just a few curated pieces and easy upgrades, your home décor can be effortlessly on-trend for the season!
Sumptuous, soft and timeless, velvet accents offer a visual feast in any area of your home. Whether you want to create subtle corners of warmth with velvet throw pillows, or make a grandiose statement with velvet armchairs, upholstery or drapery, this sophisticated fabric looks luxurious and feels elegant underhand. Opt for velvet fabrics in dark or neutral tones for a way to easily blend this trend into your existing décor.
When it comes to fall home décor style, you can never have too many rugs. Layering rugs offers an easy way to infuse multiple textures, patterns and colors into your space to create a mood that’s cozy and unique. Try mixing multiple rugs in different shapes, sizes and textures over an 8 x 11 area rug, in complementary colors and patterns to create a display straight off the pages of a design magazine.
Boho never goes out of style, but this fall, it's back with a grown-up twist. All of the kitschy, worldly elements that make up modern Bohemian style get a sophisticated spin with high-end furnishings and artistic touches. Look for mix-and-match prints in bold hues and luxurious fabrics, unique light fixtures, exotic printed area rugs and hardware and statement-making décor pieces with organic motifs. Think of it as Bohemian with a polish; neat edges, clean lines and all of the personality, color and imagination that Boho style is known for.
Rich Jewel Tones
Want a way to instantly update your space for the season? A signal that summer is truly over with rich jewel tone accents. Swap out your summery couch throw pillows for cushions in dark sapphire blue, emerald green, amethyst, and ruby red. Don’t shy away from deeply colored décor in every area of your home! Try a navy 8 x 11 area rug in the living room, a bold red chair in the entryway or deep green curtains to help add a robust color story to your home.
Travels, hobbies and general interests take center stage with the trending home décor style of Experiential Design. What once was hidden away in scrapbooks and closet shelves is now encouraged to become a part of your décor landscape; framed art from a cherished vacation, your favorite instrument, and other ephemera can become new, attractive forms of artistic expression. Create a gallery wall, or dedicate a particular room to this trend and let your personality become a part of your décor.
Floral prints are a beautiful way to outfit your home year-round, but for fall, be sure to choose floral motifs with a slightly darker edge. Consider floral embroidered pillows with a dark background, floral area rugs with fall-hued motifs and even bedding in deep purples, ruby reds, and forest green. If chosen correctly, autumnal floral accents can blend beautifully with many of these other must-have fall trends, like velvet, layered rugs, and the modern Boho. Dark floral wall art is also an easy way to embrace this trend for the season, and can be easily swapped out again for lighter motifs when spring rolls around again.
When it comes to updating your home for fall, you don’t have to go all out to make a big impact. A bold area rug, throw pillows and even a little bit of rearranging what you’ve already got can go a long way towards giving your space an autumnal feel. Mix and match these trends, or infuse a little fall style of your own into your living room, master bathroom or dining room for a great way to ring in the season in style.
