Fall is just around the corner and homeowners are getting ready to give their home a refresh for the autumn season this year. So, where to start? First, browse images for inspiration through sites like Houzz, Pinterest, and Instagram. Second, read about what home decor trends will be popular this fall to see if you want to incorporate any of the trends into your home makeover. Whether it’s creating intimate spaces with darker colors, adding texture through plush fabrics and woven accents, or creating a more homey and cozy space through quilts, there are ideas to inspire you to make a few changes to one room or several rooms. Regardless of what’s trending or what’s popular right now, the most important thing to remember is to go with what you love. Below are some fall home decor trends to consider.
1. Dark Colors
Rich, bold, dramatic colors are all the trend this fall season. PPG Paints, Glidden Paints, and Olympic Paints & Stains announced intimate shades of black as their 2018 color of the year. Even adding a warm chocolate brown to your home decor can create a luxurious and cozy feel, which is perfect for the autumn season. If you aren’t ready to paint your walls, ceiling, or trims in a darker shade, try swapping out your pillows and throws for darker patterns and thicker textures.
I love the look and feel of velvet. It’s so soft, soothing, and has an upscale look. It’s great for fall, especially with accent chairs or a sofa upholstered in velvet combined with rich chocolate accents, woven textures, and wood. If your budget doesn’t allow for re-upholstering your sofa, headboard, or dining chair, consider velvet throws, pillows, quilts, or drapes.
3. Bone Inlay
Create a focal point in your bedroom or entryway with bone inlaid furniture such as a console or a dresser. What is bone inlay? Bone inlay, specific to the Udaipur region of India is an art that requires delicate skills through craftsmen. One craftsman carves pieces of bone into intricate shapes, the second craftsman is responsible for attaching the bone onto the timber frame in patterns, and the third craftsman fills in around the bone with resin to craft the background in each piece. It’s a very detailed and intricate process that can take on average up to one month to create just one piece of beautiful bone inlay furniture. Bone inlaid furniture is definitely trending for the fall season and you can make an elegant and exotic statement by incorporating this beautiful work of art in your home.
Metals are still very popular this year, especially brass. Many home decor shops have their buyers source furniture and accessories with brass seen on the legs and frames of sofas, dining tables, coffee tables and nightstands to name a few. It’s quite easy and affordable to incorporate brass into your home decor this fall. You can even DIY by spray painting your existing chandelier, dining chair frame, lamp base, or picture frames in a gold color.
