Want to create the latest Fall 2021 looks in your home? Then it’s time to put away the beach towels and embrace Fall’s earthy fabrics and cozy textures. Decorating can sometimes feel overwhelming with all the choices available, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to create a warm seasonal-inspired look with a designer feel. If you’ve just moved into your new home, you can quickly spruce up your space with these fabulous and affordable ideas from the design experts who set home trends each year:
- Comfy Natural Textures
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the pandemic, it’s how to create a cozy and comfortable space to work and learn virtually. The latest Fall-inspired décor takes that one step further with the addition of earthy, organic textures that lend a relaxed feel. Think boucle, Sherpa and furry fabrics that you’ll find in throw pillows and chair covers that make you want to sit down, put your feet up on a furry pouf or stool and just relax.
- Create a Private Nook
Today, there is a trend towards privacy with minimalist detail and natural décor, reminiscent of Scandinavian design. The pandemic forced us to create private spaces to work and learn in, but it also taught us to cherish our alone time. Now, you can turn those spaces into a chill nook or retreat of your own. Fashion your private space with wood furnishings cushioned in organic fabrics like cotton and linen. Then curl up and relax with a good book under a cozy wool blanket or handknitted throw.
- Warm Walls and Furnishings
Fall 2021 is all about warmth and inviting style. Designers are taking it one step further by creating a “curl up by the fire mood” using vibrant Fall colors and super cozy décor. Paint your walls terracotta, burnt orange or amber, or top furnishings with pillows and throws in orange and yellow shades. Orange hues found in accessories like candles and baskets will energize neutral sandstone or gray seating.
- Fall Indoor Decorations
This season is all about keeping your home’s vibe relaxed and welcoming. You can enhance your furnishings and announce Fall with touches of warm color in plush throw pillows, a knotted macramé rug with a Bohemian vibe, candles with earthy smells, flannel blankets and wicker baskets in neutral brown and beige tones. Don’t forget to scatter lots of pumpkins in all sizes around your home.
- From the Outside In
Creating an indoor-outdoor connection is always a popular design choice. Everyone loves the look of house plants because they add organic style to your home. However, you can also create an organic feel without using tons of greenery. Try enhancing your kitchen or dining area with natural fiber furnishings and patterned motifs. Complement your space with a coffee table or dining table in wicker or rattan. Add tablecloths or runners with floral or leafy patterns, neutral tone knotted-wool rugs and linen or cotton curtains to let the sunshine peek through.
- Mix Vintage and Modern Style
Nostalgia is always in vogue, and what better way to explore this look than mixing vintage style with modern design. According to trendsetting designers, a return to velvet is big this Fall because of the comfort and warmth this plush fabric exudes. It’s not surprising that a retro palette of warm yellow shades circa the 1970s is trending this season. Designers suggest topping clean-lined gray sofas with scattered velvet pillows in sunny yellow hues to achieve this modern retro-chic look.
