Fall is in the air! That crisp, cool season brings a feeling of renewal with it. Why not update your space with some fun fall home trends? Let’s look at some options to get you started.
Cottagecore florals are all the rage this fall—and why not? This easy, cozy look brings automatic warmth and coziness wherever it goes. Consider cottagecore florals like throw pillows to add a bit of color and fall freshness to your décor.
Cottagecore is also a great choice for your fall wardrobe, too! From big, chunky sweaters to floral prints in blouses and dresses to clothes that have a simple silhouette that you know is oh so comfy, cottagecore is a great choice for fall.
Kitchenware trends come and go. If you're a bit bored with your current options, consider adding some smoky glassware to your kitchen and home décor. Smoky glassware has a bit of a retro feel that is oh so in right now! Glassware (if you're not going for full-lead crystal) is also an economical way to update the look of your table. And if you have real people living in your home and visiting it, occasionally, you will count your drinking glasses and realize it is time for a new set. Why not donate the spares to charity, and upgrade to a trendy new look? It could make Thanksgiving dinner extra fun this year.
Chocolate brown is a beautiful trend this fall. Don’t worry, if you don’t have chocolate brown as part of your décor, there are easy ways to indulge in this trend and bring your space up to date. Consider a chocolate brown throw blanket or knick-knacks like picture frames or decorative baskets in chocolate brown. This is an easy trend to shop for in the fall as chocolate brown is a fall-neutral color that can be found in everything from tablecloths to fall jackets.
Consider adding a checkerboard pattern to your living room, family room, or home office. You can do this with a throw rug, throw pillows, or even wall décor. Checkerboard patterns have a tidy, beautiful look to them. We often think of checkerboard patterns as being black and white. This is a classic look, but you can go more subtle with colors like an ivory or cream background and beige for the checkerboard, too. It’s amazing what adding a subtle pattern can do to upgrade your space. It adds visual interest in a way that is not jarring like bringing in an entirely new color to a decorated space can do.
While you're looking at how to incorporate this fall trend into your space, why not do a little fall cleaning and organizing, too? Add some seagrass baskets or new storage bins to your space. A great way to organize is to separate it into three piles—donate, keep, and toss. By paring down your belongings to the ones that are useful and beautiful to you, your home will automatically seem both more spacious and inviting.
Another fun trend is dark wood details. You don’t need to go and buy new furniture for this one (unless you would like to!). It’s more about choosing dark wood for items like cutting boards in your kitchen, decorative bowls for keys, coat hooks, and decorative figurines. As you're planning your fall activities and enjoying that patio furniture before it gets too cold, keep an eye out for dark wood details that you would like to bring into your space. You’ll be surprised at how easy this trend is to incorporate and how it will give the look of your home a lift.
The new shape is circular. If you have a circular or oval coffee table or dining table, you're already on trend! If not, consider easy ways to update your space with circular silhouettes. A circular occasional table right where someone always seems to want to place a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine is a great use of form and function.
You might also consider rearranging your current furniture to create some curved edges to traffic ways. Interior decorators are quick to tell you that you need at least three feet around all major pieces of furniture. Tables with curved edges are also easier to navigate than their square or rectangular cousins.
How about incorporating circular silhouettes into your Christmas décor this year? If it’s a trend, you will no doubt find it in some of your favorite brick-and-mortar stores and sites. Adding circular Christmas tree decorations, a new Christmas tree skirt with a lovely contrast to the floor for a circular silhouette, or circular Christmas candle holders could all be fun options.
Have fun updating your space with the new fall home trends!
