While we love summer as much as anyone else, there’s something very special about that first crisp fall day. Prepare for the season of apple picking and pumpkin patches by readying your home with the latest fall decorating trends. Here are some of our favorite ways to bring the spirit of fall into your home.
Opt for Fabrics that Make You Feel Cozy
While summer has us craving light and airy fabrics like linen, autumn is a lovely time to incorporate fabric textures and weights that make you feel cozy and warm. You’ll likely want to hold off until winter to incorporate materials like velvet, but thick cotton blankets, light wool, and cashmere throws make excellent accent pieces for sofas and chairs—and will help you fend off that first chill of the season.
Bedding Options to Keep You Toasty
The transition from summer to Fall calls for heavier bed linens and additional layers. Trade out your light layers and cue the flannel sheets, fleece blankets, and duvets that will keep you warm throughout the night. Switching out your bedding colors also help you get in the mood for the fall season. Fall decorating trends for the bedroom include vivid plaids with bright, innovative color combinations and chunky, broomstick knit throws and accent pillows that will add a nice dose of texture.
Find Inspiration in the Colors of Fall
Fall is famous for its vivid foliage and inspiring colors, so take a cue from the outdoors when thinking about your palette. This fall, the decorating trends call for rich, luxe hues that mirror the colors found in nature. Look for vibrant crimsons, rich marigold yellows, rusty oranges, and luxurious bronze tone tablecloths, napkins, and table runners, which will add a sense of depth to your home’s color scheme.
Incorporate the Bounty of the Season
Consider incorporating some elements of the Fall harvest into your table decor. A few carefully-placed pumpkins and gourds will add a fun, seasonal touch to your table. And even with those warm, sunny days waning, there are still opportunities to decorate with floral and botanical motifs. For your entryway or stoop, consider classic mums, or showcase shown off in pretty planters, to greet family and guests with a touch of color.
Create an Autumnal Tablescape
Fall is a perfect opportunity to switch from the pale pastels of summer kitchenware. Wood serving bowls are a nice way to add an earthy, autumnal look to any meal. Consider serving water or cocktails from a glass pitcher in red, orange, or yellow for a hint of color. For parties, a centerpiece using a combination of greens, gourds, and pumpkins will instantly draw admiration from your guests.
Add Warmth with Candles
With the days getting dimmer and nightfall coming earlier, you’ll likely find yourself thinking about lighting options. Candles are a lovely way to add a warm glow to any room, whether you are hosting a holiday party, an intimate gathering, or a family dinner. We love taper candles in moodier Fall colors, like gray, sage, cream, and crimson. If you like fragrant candles, this can also be a way to add the smells of fall to any room of your house, with comforting scents like pumpkin, cinnamon, or candles in a fresh cedar scent, reminiscent of the outdoors.
Get Holiday Ready
In addition to the vibrant foliage and the refreshingly crisp air, autumn is also the time of year for some of our favorite holidays. Adding some orange table linens once October hits can be a nice way to acknowledge Halloween. For Thanksgiving, start planning your table settings early, and consider how different elements of your dishware and your table linens can be combined to create a multilayered effect.
Wreaths and Garlands
Add an inviting touch to your front door with an autumn-themed wreath. The latest fall decorating trends incorporate creative materials for wreaths like leaves and branches for a natural and seasonally appropriate look. Garland made from fall greens and flowers can also be a fun substitute for a centerpiece or drape one over your mantle for some extra fall flair. And if you’re feeling crafty, there are plenty of great wreath and garland DIYs online.
Festive Fall Patterns
For some of us, fall patterns mean classic plaids, while for others it is a time to use prints inspired by the natural world. For an earthy twist on the fall standards, we also adore equestrian themed accessories for the home, which bring in the warm brown tones of autumn in a subtle but unexpected way. Mix equestrian style decor with other prints or break up patterned tablecloths and table runners with solid colored napkins for a multilayered approach.
