Wednesday was the first official day of Autumn, and we are celebrating it by sharing four fall-tastic design trends to try at home. Cooler days call for cozy, warm and earthy tones scattered throughout the house. Grab your Pumpkin Spice Latte, purchase some new candles from the Farmer’s Market and pick a pumpkin because fall is officially here!
#1 Warm Earthy Neutrals
Start bringing elevated neutral tones into your house. Warm earthy colours work the best because they can easily match whatever colour your rooms are. Add an autumn orange to your gray living room or sandstone to your cool blue bedrooms. Convenience and colour are going hand and hand this fall.
#2 Cozy Fabrics and Natural Textures
This fall, we want only the softest fabrics to cozy up with. Selecting blankets, pillows or poufs that have a natural texture, like wool or flannel, can add a touch of sophistication while remaining relaxed. These quick changes can make decorating incredibly simple.
#3 Hold Onto Summer
With summer just coming to an end, why not hold onto that outdoor lifestyle just a little bit longer? Switch to natural furnishings like rattan, wicker, wood, wool or cotton and maximize natural lighting as much as possible. Invest in floral or nature-inspired scents for your diffuser and add a few house plants.
#4 Room Dividers
As much as we love an open floor concept when entertaining, we are starting to see the perks of walls and doors. With most of us spending more time at home, having a designated space for work, school, or quiet time, has become very important. One solution to incorporate into your house this fall is decorative partition screens. These can act as a definition between kitchen and living space, or hallway and den. And at the end of the day (or your five-minute teaching break), they can easily collapse for storage.
While we start to see more permanent changes to our daily routines, our homes do not have to change enormously. A few additions here and there can be the exact switch you need heading into this new season.
