Fall for This Season's Coolest Decor Trends
Are you ready for sports watching, family gatherings and weekend snuggling? That's what the fall is all about! As the sun sets earlier and the air outside gets brisk, you'll be spending more time nestled in the coziness of your home. Here are some fresh decor ideas to help you appreciate your stay in the great indoors.
Big, bold florals
Gardens won't flourish again until the spring, but you can still gaze at pretty flowers every day. Make a floral mural an artistic accent to any room. Just keep the other walls sleek and simple to let the feature wall pop. Do you prefer your flower power in smaller doses? Choose cushions, bedding and throw pillows that are on-trend to add floral wow factor.
Bright colors are a salute to the fall. Ditch the traditional matchy look to incorporate multiple colors that play well off each other. Your furniture, curtains and accessories are all an opportunity to add pops of orange, blue, pink, yellow and gold, the hot color of the season. The key is to create a flow that complements, not overwhelms.
If you love to spend Saturday mornings at a flea market, thrift store or antique shop, your home is probably already full of distinctive pieces you've either restored or personalized. Pick one for design inspiration, then build the look of your room around it. Check Etsy or World Market for quilts, rugs, lamps and throws that add folksiness to the coziness.
If you can't show off who you are at home, then where? Make your books and magazines part of your decor. Incorporate your quirky collection of coins, coasters or touristy shot glasses into your design aesthetic. They tell the story of who you are and, when done with cohesion and a bit of flair, they make great conversation pieces for your guests. Is that a bicycle helmet as a plant holder? Why yes, as a matter of fact it is.
