If you love changing leaves, crisp air, and pumpkin everything, you are certainly not alone! And if these design trends are any indication, people are falling for fall-inspired interiors.
We’ve already talked about some of our favorite fall decorating trends here. But if you’re looking for some further commitment, these home interior design trends are certain to win you over.
If white-on-white or white-on-gray interiors were never your cup of tea, here’s some good news: warm interiors are coming in strong! Rich browns, dark greens, and blush are all proving to be popular color choices for any (and every) room of the house. Balance out the darkness with sheer curtains and lighter accent pieces.
Just as warm, rich interior paint palettes are coming into their prime, so, too, are earthier design elements. Goodbye gold everything, bright copper, and stainless steel everything. Wood, clay, and worn-metal finishes are making their way to living rooms everywhere. Classic-aged brass, in particular, is making serious impressions in the design world.
Are you sensing a pattern? Much like the hygge trend that was popular in 2016, Fall 2017 is all about feeling warm and cozy inside. Hot apple cider? Thick flannel shirts? Carve out a space in your house that makes you feel equal parts warm and intimate. Oversized throw pillows, thick carpets, a comfy reading chair, faux wood beams coupled with delicate lace, or gauzy curtains can go a long way in transforming your bedroom.
Matching furniture sets work well in any room, but that isn’t the only way to furnish your home. People are ditching “bland” furniture sets more and more frequently in favor of a “one-of-a-kind” look. If you want to avoid going too eclectic with your interior design, stick with similar color palettes, fabrics, and don’t go too bold with patterns. If there’s a “method to your madness,” the entire room will come together on its own.
Similar to the popular mix-and-match furniture style, the “curated” look is very much in right now when it comes to decorating. This trend emphasizes displaying the things you love—whether it be family photos, flowers, antiques, or other knickknacks. If you love it, you should be proud to display it because it will add a sense of you everywhere throughout your home. If it adds to the warm, cozy, and intimate vibe, even better!
Woven texture is very popular when it comes to textile and decorations, which isn’t much of a surprise given the emphasis on warm and natural. Woven textures, like wicker stands and baskets, bring depth into the room and can serve as a focal point if included in the wall art. Couple these rough textures with soft velvet, wool throw blankets, or other smooth materials to help create that cozy, intimate space, too.
Speaking of velvet, this soothing fabric not only adds visual interest to a room, it also adds tactile coziness. A velvet-upholstered chair, or even throw pillows, can transform a room.
