Give your home warm, cozy vibes

When decorating for fall this year, try to combine a mix of pieces that reflect your lifestyle impeccably and express all that you love. Take inspiration from the warm hues of autumn, found naturally and beautifully in nature. Luxurious textures, exciting shapes and cozy, neutral tones are what this season’s home décor trends are all about.

The autumn palette is warm and earthy. Vibrant colors like amber, ochre (a natural clay earth pigment), creamy neutral shades and burnt orange are reminiscent of fall foliage. These hues are naturally inviting, giving a warm and natural feel.

Deep colors, like rich plum and warm burgundy, will bring the fall season to life in your home. Layering a few lighter pastel shades with deep autumn hues can create a magical balance in your home. 

A few items probably come to mind when you think about fall home décor, such as gourds, pumpkins, patterned throw pillows, candles, cotton, straw bales and cornstalks. These can be incorporated throughout your spaces to create a beautiful fall ambiance. Candles are essential, too, as they create a warm, intimate and inviting atmosphere.

An Interior designer I follow, Nate Berkus, says, “It’s all about mixing different materials, finishes and textures. Choose natural materials and objects that feel well-worn or have patina. Antique and vintage furniture are great for this, and also metallics, geodes, and wood.”

Rich wood tones, mossy greens, tumbled brass and ceramic décor are the perfect nods to nature. To achieve a timeless appeal, add some clean lines, earthy textures and rustic finishes. Accent pillows are an effortless and cost-effective way to transform your space — bringing a pop of color, texture and pattern. 

Throughout fall, you can find many home décor stores stocking an array of throw pillows and blankets in warm, earth-tone colors. Fall-inspired motifs are also trending. It’s easy to find a wide variety of pillow covers featuring pumpkins, fall foliage and Thanksgiving and Halloween themes. Make your space cozy by layering throw blankets over the back of the sofa and arms of accent chairs, or draping them at the foot of the bed. 

Luxurious velvet, faux fur and soft sheepskin throws add an extra touch of elegance and make the perfect seasonal statement. Mix and match throw blankets and accent pillows in bold shades of red, orange and yellow, or subtle hues of wheat and ochre. A new rug is another fast way to instantly transform the look and feel of any room.
