Fall 2017 Decorating Trends

Welcome the arrival of autumn with these fall decoration trends! Here are some tips on how to bring bright fall colors and fun designs to both the inside and outside of your home.

Warm-Colored Walls

A few major paint companies deemed black as their 2018 color of the year! Black invigorates a room and makes a bold design statement. The color gives homeowners a refined and eclectic feel while simultaneously promoting a cozy space.

A black, dramatic wall functions as the perfect backdrop for architectural features or even a strong contrast to wall art. Black can even make a room with high windows feel more homey and welcoming. You can even paint your kitchen cabinets black to bring a more elegant touch to one of your favorite spaces.

If you’re not quite ready to transform a room with intense black paint, don’t worry–a dark shade of blue can accomplish the same goal!

Navy blue and dark shades of royal blue can bring the same comfortable and warm environment to any room in your home. The color pairs well with any color scheme and won’t make the room feel small at all. Other colors that can bring a warm hue and feeling include chocolate brown and forest green. Don’t be afraid to go all in to cozy up during cold weather this fall and winter!

Trendy Coffee Table

A simplistic way to bring fall into your home is through adding sleek accessories to your coffee table!

Items equipped with smooth lines, such as books and boxes, make for great decoration this fall. Add a shimmery centerpiece vase equipped with a silver candle, and you’ll create a coffee table that’s interesting and dynamic. Feel free to bring in season-appropriate flowers, too!

A good strategy to use when decorating your coffee table is to look at it from every angle. This way, you can experience what each guest will see based on where they’re are in the room. It will also help separate which items belong on the coffee table and which items may work better on a mantel or side table.

You can also take a slightly more direct approach when preparing your coffee table for fall!

Decorating with a pine cone is fall-appropriate and catches the eye right away. Partner the pine cone with a slice of wood that can double as a tray or even the perfect place for a plant.

This down-to-earth design will serve you well this fall and during the upcoming seasons. You can easily customize the pine cone to be winter-ready with textured snow paint, or give it a gold glitter dusting. Bringing the outdoors inside allows you to have endless decorating possibilities!


Use the arrival of fall to bring depth to a room with texture!

Pillows propped up on a couch are a great opportunity to bring heavy textures into the home that you may have forgone over the summer. Large geometric prints show that you put a ton of thought into a room’s design. Pillows are one of those items that allow you to showcase your taste without overwhelming a room, and they’re easily switched out each season!

You can even pull which colors you want your textured pillows to be from art in the room. The strategy is subtle but goes a long way. Consider pillows made from velvet, smooth leather, or suede. Rustic textures made of rich fall shades pair well with a smooth material and make any texture stand out even more. The luxurious fabrics will give the room a smooth and sophisticated finish!

You can even add textured pillows to a bedroom!

With neutral and white color schemes being so popular in bedrooms, they make the perfect place to prop up these pillows. A silk or corduroy pillow is striking against a down comforter, especially in chilly weather.

The different materials blend well together and feel natural to touch. The neutral pallet you have to work with allows you to bring nearly any warm fall color into peaceful rooms in your house!

A Fabulous Front Door

Put all the attention on your front door this fall!

Autumn is the ultimate time of year to create beautiful outdoor decorations. Top fall colors go hand-in-hand with anything Halloween- and Thanksgiving-related, such as pumpkins and gourds, and will be impossible to pass up.

Brightly colored fall wreaths will accentuate the front of your house in the best way! If you’re crafty, take this time to show your skills and make your own wreath. You can purchase small husks, bright red berries, a floral vine, a few small gourds, and some flowers to make a wreath to remember. Just buy a sturdy wreath ring to start with and keep everything held together with hot glue. Be creative and throw in some oak and maple leaves as well!

Getting in touch with nature is a good way to go about this design and simple decor will make a huge difference. Create a warm entryway with fall flowers in a large pot or container. One possible arrangement you can use consists of floral bushes, burgundy fox-tail bushes, and a leafy blend. You can even add small pumpkins for a more intense pop of color! The fall foliage will bring life to the front of your house after the leaves have turned and fallen.

Don’t forget to get your fireplace ready for fall, too!
