Autumn or fall is the best time of the year with cooler temperatures, nature changing and the emergence of fall colors; it’s no surprise it’s one of the best seasons! It is every interior decorator’s dream to design your home to give it that fall or autumn feel. The incorporation of earthly tones to your home to give it that autumn feel is perfect for transitioning into the new season with the excitement of the passing of the year.
A change in season usually always calls for a change in interior decor, for fall season it’s all about layering and opting for colors that reflects the foliage, making your home embody the warm and inviting mood that comes with the crisp autumn months.
From the exterior to the interior of your home, fall colors can be rich and robust or subtle and subdued. And while some decorating tips and ideas are popular, but these are the top five tips/trend for decorating during fall season:
5. Fall Hue Fabrics
Oranges and reds are always a good choice during the fall season, and interior designers are going all in on fall hues this season. Incorporating some pops of red or orange in your space would give it that warm, welcoming feel perfect for fall season. You could play around with the color of cushions for your sofa, curtains or even pillows on your bed.
4. Gold Accents
Gold is a color that will always stay in fashion! It is making a comeback and is going to be big this autumn. When using gold for decorating during the fall season, it’s best to incorporate muted gold accents with a brushed finish instead of the highly polished and bright gold. Incorporating muted gold in your home during the season can add an understated elegance to your home. It could be adding gold lamps near your burgundy or brown furniture or a luxurious gold bedspread for the bed.
There are also other ideas that can be used:
- Gold leaf candle holder
- Anything gold that says “Happy Fall.” You would typically find this on wreaths, doormats, wall art, and pillows.
- Sparkly gold lights – It could be glass hurricanes, garlands that are pre-lit with small twinkling lights or gold colored glass pumpkins.
3. Woven Textures
Woven textures offer a homey and warm feel which is needed in colder months. There are many ways to incorporate woven textures in your home; from hanging baskets, using wicker stands for plants or hand knit wool throws. It’s also a cozy and comfortable feel when you add woven textures with contemporary furnishings like an old stool or even layering them alongside each other.
2. Pumpkins and Gourds In A New Light
Bringing nature indoors is a very popular trend for decorating during the fall season. Although a lot of people do this typically with flowers, this year try adding pumpkins and gourds to your decor ideas.
Pumpkins come in different shapes and different shades of yellow which makes them perfect to be combined with your favorite flowers and grasses. This year try using a rustic lantern to display pumpkins, gourds, and acorns instead of the conventional pattern of spreading them across a table as centerpieces.
Another creative idea is to display pumpkins, gourds, and acorns in planters, flower boxes or hanging baskets. This is perfect for decorating the outdoors or the kitchen.
1. DIY Decorations
This is a major fall decorating trend this year – looking for DIY solutions to make decorating easy so you can focus more time on enjoying the season. Dress up your table centerpiece, add fun lights or a fall beverage bar.
Some creative ideas include:
- Yarn pumpkins: this is very easy to do with yarn, and it can be fun and educational for the kids.
- Fall wreaths: this is made simply by layering a chalkboard paint on the inside of a tray and adding autumn branches and bittersweet berries for a perfect finish. Use chalk paint to write “Welcome” or “Fall Y’all” and hang on your front door
- Painted Acorns: paint a few acorns and place them in a bowl, for a fun and festive flair.
During the fall season, it is important to incorporate warm undertones in your home to leave you feeling comfortable and cozy. These ideas will leave your home feeling and even smelling like autumn.
