We are well into the fall equinox, which means the seasons have finally changed over. (Unless you live in Texas) It’s time to say bye-bye to those cute summer espadrilles and pull out your favorite pair of knee high boots. I’m always sad to see the days of summer come to an end, but the change in season and colors of fall can be truly inspiring. As you prepare to update your wardrobe, take the time to update your home with some of my favorite fall design trends.
Gold is portrayed as the richest of the metallic tones and can be used to add warmth and beauty to any room. The layering of different golds can be used to add depth and elegance. For the most effective use of gold, tone it down with a neutral color to keep it from appearing gaudy or stale.
The Touch of Texture
Fall design expands farther than the use of warm hues. Texture can also be placed around the home to balance fall’s neutral colors and rich metallic tones. To add that extra cozy touch to your home place a plush area rug to keep the look grounded.
The use of texture and shape will bring comfort into your home. Many of us look forward to curling up on the couch with a pumpkin spice latte on a cool fall evening. To achieve absolute warmth, use fur pillows and throws to add interest to any couch. Fabrics like thick tweeds, wool and velvet are great for nights by the fireplace.
One of the biggest ways to change the mood in your home is to explore the neutral palette. Colorless, pared-down design is standing out in the industry as new and fresh. Consider swapping out brightly colored accent pieces with more seasonal hues like taupe, mauve and moss. Using muted hues like wine red, golden yellow, plum and chocolate brown will bring plenty of warmth to any room
Illuminate Your Space
The autumn season brings lower temperatures and shorter days. Embrace the glowing evening light and early nightfall by lighting candles around the house. The ambiance of candlelight is great for relieving the stress and anxiety of a long day of work or shopping.
Updating your home with these great design trends will allow you to take on fall without missing a beat. Use that extra hour gained from daylight savings time to transform your home.
