Hey y’ll! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
Let me introduce you to my guest poster.
Christina Johnson works for Elliman Prudential and has written some articles on interior design and DIY tricks to increase the value of your home. Today she is sharing some upcoming fall trends in home decor. I’m a visual person so I added some photos that demonstrate her ideas and tips.
As summer gives way to autumn and the air turns crisp, it’s the perfect time to revamp your home decor. Bring some of the rich textures and colors of fall indoors, to create your own cool weather sanctuary. Take a peak at some of the fresh trends in fall decor.
A Splash of Color
Transforming a room does not need to involve construction and money. Imbue your home with fall’s popular warm, cozy colors. Whether you want to go bold or stick with neutrals, this season’s palette offers something for everyone. Among the trendiest paint colors are soft gold, burnt orange, mocha, creamy beige, asparagus green, earthy browns and tans, and shades of gray, ranging from peppercorn to a pale gray violet. In a neutral room, an accent wall in a bold color can add depth and interest. Some popular choices are creams and beige with a brown or red accent wall.
Bold, neutral, solids, and patterns can all add texture to a space. Wallpaper has become easy to apply and remove, making it an affordable way to update a room from season to season. Metallics can add glamor to a room, while printable wallpaper allows home-owners to customize the design to their tastes.
Change it Up
These days anything goes, no need to match. Eclectic decor is one of the bigger trends of fall. Mix masculine and feminine, antique and modern, or combine artwork of different mediums and styles. Try pairing your antique coffee table with a modern sofa. Try adding a splash of pink, or vases full of flowers, to an otherwise masculine room. Location no longer matters either, whether you live in a Manhattan Rental, or a country colonial, whatever you call home should be decorated based on your taste.
Recycled home goods
Take recycling to a whole new level by using up-cycled pieces. Whether you want to take on a craft project or browse Etsy; you’ll be amazed by the range of re-imagined materials. Recycled-content counters have seen an increase in popularity but are still unique enough to drum up some compliments. Accent items, like clocks made from old records or bowls made from magazines can be chic and functional as well.
Dress your Windows and Doors
Dark and dreary window/door treatments are out. Design aficionados are predicting that linen panels will be huge this fall. These window treatments can soften any room. The classic fabric comes in a variety of colors and patterns to complement the colors of the room. With lighter material, the fall days will not seem so dark and dreary.
Décor for the Wall
Throw pillows, candles, art, sheets, comforters, slipcovers, floral centerpieces, and knickknacks, can complement the color of the room and add a fun or sophisticated feel. While neutral furniture has been the standard, don’t be afraid to experiment and add a splash of color, as accessories can be easily swapped out with the change of seasons. Black, copper,red, chocolate brown, brass, wine, and funky patterns are popular this season. However, shades of orange have been stealing the show. Add some burnt orange pillows or a few pumpkin orange vases to give your home a fall feeling.
I hope you were able to get some inspiration to help update the look of your home this fall!
