Home Design Trends for Fall & Winter
There’s nothing like a chill in the air to give you a crisp, clean slate to work with when it comes to your home decor! Whether you’re looking to spice things up or cool down the vibe in your home for the end of the year, we’ve got plenty of inspiration for your home design trends for fall and winter.
Take Comfort in Neutrals
When staying in is the new going out, it’s even more important for your home to be your comfort zone! A neutral color palette creates warmth and softness, especially when you move past the standard gray and opt for mushroom, taupe and bark tones. The key is to create depth with texture—think velvet throw pillows, fur-covered accent chairs woven rugs and wall hangings, and natural touches like wicker and dried pampas grass. It just so happens that all of these accents are very in for fall and winter, too!
All Natural, All The Time
A throwback to the 70’s, rattan has once again become a staple in home decor. It’s lightweight, so it’s easy to move around and can be styled up or down. Cane has had a resurgence and appears on sideboards, sofas, chairs and beds. Cane can also be bent into incredible shapes, like this lampshade, creating a fantastic focal point. Add a natural jute rug – and plants of course.
Spice It Up
If you’re ready for something other than an all-neutral palette, earthy tones are another inviting option. Cocoon your living space with caramel tones, warm ferns and olives, and even dusty blushes and terra-cotta. Best of all, you can make the transition gradually and naturally—these tones blend spectacularly with existing grays and neutral palettes.
With terra-cotta tones all the way back on the scene, exposed brick is incredibly timely as well. Unfinished, exposed walls suit a wide variety of styles from industrial or mid-century to Scandinavian minimalism. Exposed brick really sets off softer colors and textures as well to create interesting depth.
Adjoining houses, renovating an old build, or simply stuck for an effortlessly-cool living room design? An exposed brick wall could be the exact solution you need. You can experiment with open-backed or floating shelves for books and decorative items, or set off its natural beauty with some greenery.
You may have seen a lot of textile art on your favorite home design blogs—and you can rest assured the trend’s not going anywhere any time soon. There are plenty of options if you haven’t hopped on the bandwagon yet. You can support a small business and purchase a handmade, one-of-a-kind piece, or you can purchase a woven statement rug meant for the floor and hang it on the wall, or you can even make your own!
Textiles That Check All Your Boxes
Traditional tartan is very on-trend, especially for this time of year. If it’s too old-fashioned for your taste, consider it in white-and-black or in greyscale. Black and white Buffalo check is a great option for the farmhouse style and layers beautifully with rattan, wicker or other woven pieces. Infuse small amounts of plaid into your decor with curtains, placemats, throw pillows or blankets. It only takes a small touch to make a big impact!
