Fall is upon us, and while pumpkins, cider and bonfires might be the first thing that comes to mind when the weather turns chilly, what really excites us is the prospect of a new look for fall. We have rounded up five of our favorite fall trends worth trying to give your home that cozy feeling all season long.
The last thing you want is frozen toes on a chilly floor, so fall is the just-right time to treat yourself, and your home, to a soft rug. There’s plenty of rich new tones, patterns and textures to choose from this season so you can add a warm look and feel to every room.
Globes and Stems
As trees lose their leaves we can really see the architecture of nature. The simplest of shapes—circles and lines—make for wonderfully simple-yet-abstract lighting fixtures. These fixtures are a great way to add modern drama without being ornate or over the top.
Everything that glitters is gold, and gold is not going away anytime soon. There has been a huge gravitation toward this classic finish, which is beloved for its rich, warm tones that are right at home in the fall (and any season, really). The natural warmth and reflective quality of this finish adds a special golden glow to any space.
A perennial favorite, matte finishes can help create a softer feel in your home. Glossy or polished tones can come off cold or sterile in a modern space, but matte finishes bring a smoothness that feels comfortable and livable.
Velvet has been underground for a while now, but the classic fabric is having a revolution. Done wrong, velvet can come across as drab and old fashioned, but in bright colors with clean silhouettes, it’s perfectly contemporary and brings a luxe look to modern spaces.
