Why wait for the New Year to revamp your home decor? Whether you’re ready for a total renovation or simply want to add a splash of the newest “it” color to your kitchen, fall is the perfect time to freshen up your home. We dug through Pinterest to find timeless and emerging trends in various categories, and here are a few of our top fall home decor trends.
Fall Home Decor Trends for 2017-
Dark Green Kitchens
The leaves outside may be changing, but inside things are going green — especially kitchen cabinets. This room designed by Erin Napier on HGTV’s Home Town highlights the kitchen fall home decor trends for 2017. Combined with rich natural wood and leather and accented with brass and cream, this cozy green color is a perfect fit for fall and winter.
Pronounced “hoo-ga,” this Danish concept roughly translates to a feeling of cozy contentment and is how the Danes survive their notoriously long, cold winters. So upgrade your throws, light a few candles and hunker down until spring comes.
What could be more soothing than velvet? It’s a fabric that feels luxurious and welcoming for fall and winter. Countryliving.com contributing editor and stylist Heather Bullard says that when velvet is combined with rough natural textures (think reclaimed wood and woven baskets) and smooth metals and ceramics, it adds visual interest and tactile coziness to a room. Don’t have the budget to spring for an upholstered chair like the one pictured? Add velvet pillows or a velvet throw instead.
Due for an update but don’t have the funds? You don’t have to spend a fortune to make some improvements. Increased availability of faux finishes, from removable wallpaper and floor decals (pictured) to stick-on subway tiles, to the faux florals and wooden beams of Fixer Upper fame, have made it easier and cheaper than ever to make quick home improvements that look the part.
Brass is the new copper, especially when incorporated into furniture in an overt way, says Anne White, personal styling manager at BHLDN + Home at Anthropologie. Take this sectional with a beautiful brass frame as a perfect example of this trend.
Heads up! You’ve heard of accent walls, but how about an accent ceiling? Whether textured wallpaper, tin or embossed foam ceiling tile, shiplap, wooden beams, or a bold paint color, homeowners are adding texture to the oft-overlooked “fifth wall.”
Matte Black Home Accessories
In both the bathroom and the kitchen, look for matte black light fixtures and faucets, as in this design by Love Create Celebrate, and appliances (hello, super-cute KitchenAid!).
Extending the Outdoor Season
Start by investing in a deep seating patio set and complement it with a fire pit or outdoor heater for warmth. This is also a good time to update your planters, rugs, and throw pillows by transitioning to warmer fall colors and textures. Another small detail that goes a long way is adding a fall wreath. All of this plays into the theme of creating that cozy, calm, inviting space and home to help combat our crazy-busy lives.
