Fall is one of our real estate agents' favorite times of the year. With apple cider donuts, spooky themes, and pumpkin spice lattes, we can't help but feel excited about all things fall. And while nature's magic is happening outside, it's time to dress your home with colors and materials that make your space look and feel as cozy and homey as possible. The interior décor trends we're seeing for fall 2021 revolve around comfort, color, and convenience. Here are the biggest fall home décor trends of 2021.
- Heirloom Furniture and Décor
Bespoke furnishings and vintage décor are all the rage for fall 2021. This trend centers on taking accessories and furniture often seen in grandma's house and pairing them with modern ones to create a mashup style. This, for instance, could mean displaying an heirloom vase on a simple, modern dining table or dusting off old picture frames. This fall is the perfect time to display your flea market finds, grannie's heirloom pieces, and travel mementos.
- Brushed Brass and Gold
Among the top décor trends of this season, they could not miss the gleams of brass and gold. The cooler weather of fall is compatible with an elegant and refined metal finish. Gold and brass can elevate the occasional table to a decorative category, enhance a simple ceiling lamp, and dress up charming seats. You can pull these tones in easily with bookends, candlesticks, picture frames, knobs and cabinet pulls, lighting, or small accessories. Make their presence known.
You only need to peep at Instagram and Pinterest to see that indoor plants are back. From retro-style hanging creepers to blowsy blooms, you're sure to find houseplants that will suit your style and space. Not only are they beautiful, bring color and vibrancy to our homes, houseplants also freshen the air, releasing oxygen and filtering out pollutants. Surrounding ourselves with nature allows us to feel freer and more alive. Do not forget to bet on species that are easy to care for.
- Cozy Fabrics with Natural Textures
With people spending more time at home, creating an inviting, comfortable atmosphere has become a top priority in design. And for this reason, textures are taking control this fall. Whether it's a rustic rug or smooth velvet, we're seeing more people embrace the freedom of mixing patterns and textures. One of the easiest ways to incorporate this trend is to layer on lots of texture. Take throws and blankets in autumnal tones, add a chunky knit blanket, and then bring in faux fur throws to add depth. Layer them up on sofas, beds, and chairs to add bags of comfort and a welcoming look.
When it comes to upholstery, velvet is a big player in this year's fall interior design trends. Luxuriously plush and all-around irresistible, velvet is the perfect way to add texture, coziness, fall-ready ambiance to your aesthetic. To embrace this luxe textile, think in terms of pillows, blankets, chairs, drapes, table linens, or a headboard. You can go for earth-toned hued velvet or have fun with bold, cooler colors because velvet is warm and comfortable by nature.
- Warm, Earthy Neutrals
Warm, nature-inspired hues will be trending this fall. Think of warm browns, deep greens, tans, taupes, creams, reds, and everything in between. Like all your favorite fall desserts, these color trends are warmer and more inviting. Terracotta is also huge this fall. The warm shades of orange, brown, and red will create a cozy atmosphere perfect for the fall weather. Look for pieces featuring earthy tones to imbue your home with visual warmth and a touch of spice.
