After months of heat, when fall rolls around, we crave cozy layers, nights in and shorter days. Also comes the need for texture and layers that create visual interest while retaining cozy feel to help get us through the darker, colder months. Whether you lean modern or more traditional, there’s something for everyone - so grab a cup of hot cider and read on for basic ways to upgrade your home décor with fall’s hottest trends.
Velvet, Fur & Plush Textures
Velvet, fur and plus add texture and warmth - which are great for cooler months! Go bold with a jewel-toned velvet sofa, or keep it simple by adding a few velvet pillows for the fall and winter months. A well-placed and practical fur blanket draped on the sofa or a sheepskin over the back of a chair or foot of a bed transforms a room into a haven of warmth. Or try a cowhide rug to convert your living room into a comfy oasis.
Think rich jewel-tones: Rust, navy, burgundy, dusty pink, and emerald all work especially well alongside metallic, contemporary grays and creamy neutrals.
As we cozy up indoors, bring the outdoors in by adding natural materials in earth-inspired color schemes. Layer cozy knits, try earth-toned art or display branches in a large vase or urn. Style your walls and bookshelves with seasonal shades like rich chestnut and soothing vanilla and display your firewood in a pretty woven basket.
Believe it or not, wallpaper is making a comeback! Consider adding moody, floral wallpaper to a powder bath for a dramatic statement in a small, safe space. A textured wall covering like grasscloth can help add depth to a space – like behind bookshelves - while a geometric would be neat in a mudroom, laundry room or pantry.
Keep your eye out for cutesy vintage crockware to warm up shelving or hold utencils. Candlesticks, wooden chests and bowls, and other gems can easily warm up your space with whimsical charm for the holidays.
