If our summer weather has been anything to go by, then autumn is just around the corner. Technically it starts in September; we really are only a matter of weeks away. As with fashion, home styles change with the seasons too. So if you’re looking for some fall/autumn home decor inspiration, then look no further. So I’ve been scouring the web (basically, Pinterest) for all of the hues and designs that are going to huge over the next few months. It does go without saying that you should choose whatever styles you love regardless. But if you happen to love the latest trends, and are looking to update your home, then now is the time. When the weather shifts, you kind of want to create a cosier environment too. So here are some of the trends to look out for. Are there any that you’re particularly looking forward to?
Dark Green Vibes
Outside, the leaves will be changing, so why not bring some green leafy vibes in the home? When you combine dark green with natural wood or leather, and accent with rose gold or cream, it makes for a really classy look. From bedrooms to kitchens, this colour trend is really versatile. It makes for a really cosy look as we enter autumn and winter.
Creating a Retreat
When the evenings start getting darker earlier, then it is the perfect time to embrace hygge. You might have heard that buzzword around this time of year, but it really is perfect for this kind of thing. It is all about being cosy, comfortable, and hibernating during the cooler months. You could create your own tech-free sanctuary in your bedroom using drapes and canopies to create an enclosed retreat. You could invest in zip and link mattresses to make the most of your bed and create a larger sleeping space. You could get a hammock or hanging chair, as well as create a cosy reading nook from bean bags or soft blankets.
Woven textures and textiles can create depth and style for any room; don’t underestimate the power that they have! They can create a cosy look in colder months too. You could use woven baskets on the wall as a feature, or go for something more subtle, like putting houseplants in woven planters or switching out your lampshade to a wicker or woven basket light. A basket for logs near the log burner or simply to store shoes in by the door are great options too. Chunky knit throws are a good addition too, as well as combining the look with some smoother textures, like a glass coffee table.
Over the past year or so, it has all been about copper for home accessories. While copper is still going to look good, especially teamed with the dark green vibes, brass is set to take the home decor world by storm. Keep it subtle, though, using brass in things like mirrors, and frames.
