Earthy, Nature-Inspired Colors:
Orange, red, and yellow are the conventional colors of fall. However, designers are increasingly turning to other nature-inspired hues to create refined fall color combinations. Warm, richer tones come in the fall season, such as deep greens, blues, and browns. Although these tones might not be traditional for fall, they feel appropriate for the season when used in deeper shades with warm undertones.
After seasonal gatherings were put on pause last year, many of us are cautiously looking forward to welcoming family back into our homes again this fall. Common spaces such as the kitchen, dining room, and living areas will be the focus of fall decorating this year. Is your home ready for hosting? Incorporate elements that cater to all five senses. This may include candles or essential oil diffusers. The power of scent is an incredible element in hosting gatherings in your home.
As the weather turns colder, warm, comforting fabrics are a must. Texture is a key trend for 2021. Layering chunky knitted blankets and decorative pillows with velvets and other rich, textured fabrics will quickly transform your space from light, and airy summer feel to a warm and welcoming fall vibe. As you refresh your sofa or bedding, mix in a variety of fabrics in different textures. These may include nubby bouclé, plush faux fur, and soft cashmere, for a cozy, layered look.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the notion that your home should be a sanctuary, and this idea will be at the forefront of fall decorating this year. Take the change of seasons as an opportunity to carve out a special nook somewhere in your home. Outfit a window seat with cozy pillows and a plaid throw, or pull a comfy armchair into a corner to form a reading nook.
