I recently had the pleasure of contributing to an article on NewHomeSource all about fall interior design trends. Along with other design experts, I shared some of my favorite ways to decorate during the autumn season. When staging a home for my clients through MHM Professional Staging, I incorporate specific elements that connect with the seasons so that the home feels warm and welcoming—just as it would if you were living in the home yourself.
What follows is my contribution to the article; if you’d like to see even more fall interior design trends from the design professionals, you can view the article on NewHomeSource here.
Spruce Up Your Space
The fall season always makes us think of warmth and coziness, and we are excited to see how these elements are working their way into design trends. This year’s trends are all about bringing natural and earthy warmth into the home with soft and organic lines, natural wood and stone finishes, bold colors, and lots of texture.
Natural woods and stones bring a tremendous amount of warmth to a home and there are endless possibilities on how to implement these elements. We’re seeing wood finishes with a more muted and natural look on flooring, cabinetry, furniture, and even smaller accessories like vases & decorative accents. An excellent complement to natural woods is, of course, natural stone! The organic lines and veins add character and warmth to any space.
In addition to natural finishes, rich and earthy color tones are gaining popularity. Indigo and muted robin’s egg blues, mustard yellows, sage and forest greens, light, earthy browns and taupes, and more are great colors to bring into your space to add that perfect amount of warmth and character. As the all-white and minimalistic trends are fading, we’re seeing color come back in a big way: these earthy and moody colors can be implemented in kitchens, other cabinetry, wall paints, and décor accents like pillows, artwork, rugs, etc.
Last but not least, one of the best, and sometimes easiest, ways to add warmth and coziness to any space is to bring in varying textures! Faux furs are continuing in their popularity, fabrics like linen and velvet, woven accents, and fall branches and simple greenery are the trending accents to spruce up any space this fall.
Bring the Colors of Fall into Your Home
I hope that this post inspires you to bring the beautiful, warm colors of fall into your home. Just a touch of natural wood accents and colorful throw pillows can make a big difference.
