Pumpkin spice and everything nice. Say hello to cozy nights of autumn with these fall trends endorsed by the pros.
From changing leaves to fond memories, we can all agree that fall is the best season. Yes, who doesn’t enjoy the leaves changing into magnificent colors before finally falling away? I remember I used to call them “tree stars” because of its vibrant golden-yellow and red. Plus, who doesn’t love the cozy wool throws and earthy fall scent? Also, fall is the perfect weather to start making hot cocoa and lighting a fire in the fireplace. It’s also a great time to redecorate your home into a cozy and warm place. After all, fall is full of family holidays, so it’s the best time to make your family and friends go wow with your fall decor.
To help you achieve a cozy and warm home, we collected these fall trends you need to know. Yes, they are all approved by the pros.
Yes, we know that fall is all about decorating your home with warm, earth tones, but interior experts believe that rich, deep, saturated hues can create a beautiful contrast in neutral painted spaces. We suggest creating a focal point by painting a piece of furniture or your walls with bold colors, such as dark orange or bright red.
Cozy Textured Fabrics and Materials
One of the fall trends everybody loves is adding cozy fabrics and materials that will make your home feel inviting and warm. For example, bouclé, fake furs, and heavy linens. You can add thick wool throws on your bed, couch, or patio.
Earthy and Fall Scent
Of course, earthy notes of cedar, spiced florals, and tobacco is a must this season. We advise you to avoid buying artificial sprays and chemical-based products. It’s best if you can create your own fall scents, such as mixing rum punch and warm cider. This will definitely make your home smell nice and a great way to welcome guests.
Muddy Jewel Tones
Adding to our list of fall trends is to choose a softer, brownish-white palette. Alison Giese of Alison Giese Interiors is breaking the autumnal color tradition. According to her, muddy jewel colors, such as cocoa, eggplant, mustard in doses with bone, putty, and warm whites keeps your home from feeling too heavy.
Bring some of the outside in by furnishing your home with natural materials. For example, bamboo, caning, rattan, rough woods, etc. These materials can make your home look casual and elegant. Plus, the layering of these natural materials brings warmth to any space.
One of the easiest fall trends to apply to your home is to change the color of your bedding or pillowcases to rust colors, such as burnt orange or rust velvet. It is still vibrant, but it’s a little more muted.
According to Kerry Vasquez of Kerry Vasquez Design in an interview with MyDomaine, “Form is taking a front seat in furniture design right now. Anything remotely chunky, sculptural, or curved is very en vogue — all those things together, even better!“
Terra Cotta Tones
One of the fall trends to make your home look cozy and warm is to add terra cotta and rust tones, such as an art, a flatweave rug, a pillow, or a throw. Interior expert Brady Tolbert suggested combining terra cotta with a minimal and very neutral color palette to create harmony.
Mandy Cheng of Mandy Cheng Design recommends creating textured walls in your home this fall season. “Textured —Roman Clay or limewash — walls offer depth and a feeling of the warmth you thought you could only feel in an old Parisian loft, and it is magical at all times of the day,” says Mandy Cheng in an interview with MyDomaine.
Velvet began last year, but it’s still getting even more popular this 2020. Plus, it’s easy to combine it with any interior styles like modern, rustic, and even minimal. Additionally, velvet proved that it’s one of the decor choices that can and will stand the test of time. So if you want to hop on the velvet train this season, we suggest that you go big and bold with a velvet armchair or sofa.
