Whether you love fall or you’re sad to see summer go, there is a decor trend that will work for you this year, without you having to go with traditional fall colors and themes. Pumpkins everywhere is just not everyone’s cup of tea.
I’ll confess- I’m a summer lover, and am sad to see colors fade, days get shorter, and temps grow cooler, but at home, there is something to be said for fall decor- more colors, textures, and warmer tones. Cozy is always a key component of fall, and that’s never a bad thing when it comes to home. Remember too, that you don’t have to take every component of the trends and go all in. Take a look at some of the trends and see how you can incorporate them in a way that feels comfortable to you. If your home is on the market, or is going to be, thinking less about yourself and more about how it appeals to the masses is definitely the way to go. Either way, I bet you have many pieces that can bring your fall decor to current trends without having to buy much!
Without further adieu, here are all the trends that we’re seeing in home decor this fall…
Warm Neutrals and Earth Tones
We’re continuing to see more neutrals, and heading into fall, we’ll see more and more earth tones as well. Think taupe, ivory, linen colors, but paired with rusts, olives, coppers, and rich browns. (Yes, we can skip orange completely if we want!)
I always think one of the easiest ways to transition into fall and cooler weather is to incorporate more textures. Put
away those lighter fabrics, and bring out the chunky knits, weaves, boucles, and flannels, and add in some natural wood pieces to add in a little more warmth and texture.
Adding in some natural wood tones is a logical step when you’re trying to warm up a space, and you can accomplish this even if you don’t want to replace all your furniture. Add in a
Tonal Color Palettes
Another trend we’re seeing this year is the use of tonal color palettes. That’s basically using various tones of the same color- sometimes with an accent color, but not more than three colors in a room. This is one that can really create a calming, “unbusy” space, while being striking at the same time. It all depends on how far you want to take it. Generally
you’ll see this trend used with neutrals, but that’s not how it has to be. Pick a bolder color and your room takes on a totally different look.
Mixing Vintage and Modern
This is always a trend, in my book at least, and is one of my favorite types of decorating. I tend to call this style, “storied” because you are folding in pieces that may have a story, that add interest, and in my case, at least, pieces that mean something to you or that you just love. It definitely keeps things interesting, and ensures that your space is unlikely to look like anyone else’s.
