What’s Hot in Home Décor This Fall 2018

September 2, 2017

Hard to believe it is the end of August. The days are getting shorter and there is a definite chill in the air in the evening.  Fall equinox begins on September 22 this year which is less than a month away! Are you ready to change Seasons? Here are a few highlights of the popular Autumn trends this year:

Number one is Texture,texture, texture.

The use of natural wood in decorating is everywhere and makes the room feel complete with the balanced look of soft and durable:

The key is to create a balance of contrast between softness and textured items. Creating a cozy room is mixing in soft and comfortable textures with layered rugs, chenille blankets, weathered woods and woven baskets and rough natural textures such as trays and ottomans:

And macramé wall hangings!:

Popular in flooring and kitchen cabinets is using cerused wood (also called “limed wood”)  which provides depth and texture for a look that’s worn yet polished. The finish blends seamlessly with today’s popular muted color palettes where gray is still popular:

Another textured item that is hot this Fall is Velvet being used for sofas and pillows:

As I mentioned here, the vibrant color of red-orange is being seen in accessories such as throws and pillows to transform a room into the cozy days of Autumn:

Fur is still going strong as is the color navy blue.

Round mirrors are super popular right now! I have always loved round mirrors in a room to help break up the square, hard edges of the walls:

One more item I want to mention, is that all white bedding seems to be on it’s way out. Colorful quilts and comforters are becoming more prevalent in bedrooms:
