Just like that, summer has come and gone. With the temperatures cooling down and the leaves starting to descend from the trees, it is time to welcome fall into our homes. The change of seasons welcomes the change of design. Of course this doesn’t have to mean a total revamp, but changing a few details here and there can really get you ready and in the spirit for the cooler months ahead. Can’t get enough of fall design? Grab even more inspiration here! Enjoy our favorite fall interior design trends of 2017.
Luxurious, cozy, and welcoming. Velvet is a great texture to incorporate into your home for the fall season. The texture alone welcomes you to cozy up with a blanket and enjoy some peace and quiet. While velvet furniture can be on the more expensive end, try incorporating it in smaller ways. Blankets, and throw pillows cost much less and still give that warm and cozy feel
Velvet is great at adding visual depth to you space. Another great plus of this versatile material is that it can blend into nearly any design style. From traditional to contemporary, this timeless fabric has been bringing comfort to homes for many, many years. Some people associate velvet with “fancy” spaces and this isn’t the case. It has such a wide range of uses, even in the most casual of spaces. Try pairing it with raw and natural materials to add an additional level of depth.
2. Woven Textures
With such a wide range of uses, this fall interior design trend may just be one of the easiest ones to integrate into any home. One of the coolest examples we’ve been seeing a lot of in the design community is swapping out your kitchen pendant lights for basket pendant lights. The texture of the baskets immediately draws your eye up and adds so much interest into the space. Another great example is finding a variety of sizes of baskets and hanging them on the wall to create a beautiful focal point.
Of course, there is the never fail basket on the floor. Not only does it look great all on its own, it’s also a great use for storage. Finally, a place for all your favorite throw blankets. It’s important to keep in mind offsetting the rough texture of the basket with something soft, like a cozy chunky knit throw.
3. Faux Fur
Fall interior design trends aren’t all about pumpkins and scarecrows, it’s about what makes you feel cozy. What makes you feel at home. Texture has a huge part in that, which is why faux fur is our third fall interior design trend. Weather it’s a faux fur rug draped over a sofa, a pillow on your bed, or an ottoman in the corner, seeing and feeling faux fur in a room immediately make you feel comfortable, welcomed, and at home.
With faux fur being so popular in recent designs it’s so much easier to find good quality faux products than it used to be. Don’t worry, this is a fall interior design trend you can utilize while still being animal friendly!
Terracotta is yet another example of one of the timeless interior design trends. Though they weren’t being used as often in design they are back and here to stay. Terracotta is a great way to incorporate a classic warmth with very little effort. This neutral earth tone adds a great deal of character to interiors.
Again, another great example of a fall interior design trend that can be incorporated with any design style, even contemporary and modern spaces!
5. Cork Wall
Our final fall interior design trend is cork walls. This super fun, cheap, and easy design trend can be easily incorporated into any home. Although it is most commonly seen in offices, it could be used in any room of the house that could use a little sprucing up. Not only does the cork give off a great sense of depth and texture, it’s a great opportunity to pin inspiration images, calendars, etc. The possibilities are endless!
