In this blog, we will cover:
- Where to look for fall home decor inspiration
- 5 trends you need to refresh your fall home decor
Find Your Inspiration
The fun part about refreshing your home decor is deciding what you like. There are a ton of different resources you can use to look for inspiration.
Here are a few platforms that can spark your vision.
Google – “Fall Home Décor”
A simple Google search can lead to an abundance of ideas, plus it’s free!
If you’re a visual person, you can go to Google Images and see some options for your fall home decor transformation. You can even browse stores through Google Shopping and buy directly from the advertisements.
Here, you can get a general idea of how you can tie your home together with some fun fall pieces. The only downside is that you might become overwhelmed by the results, but you can use the suggested tabs to narrow down your search.
Instagram – “Fall Home Décor”
The next step you can take for gathering your home decor ideas is to visit your Instagram explore page.
Instagram is a great place to interact with accounts you like and discover what the latest design trends are. You can see how influencers decorate their homes in real time with video reels and explore different hashtags to get a feel for how you want to refresh your home.
Similar to Google, Instagram will allow you to view products that you can purchase directly from the app. The in-platform store offers items from many different brands, including small businesses that you can support.
Pinterest – “Fall Home Décor”
Although it may take a moment for you to get the hang of it, Pinterest is probably the most useful tool for creating a coherent plan for your decor transformation.
Pinterest is great for researching and exploring different aesthetics that you might not have come across on your own. You can pin the photos, videos, or articles you like and create a mood board that fits your theme. Additionally, Pinterest creators constantly provide fresh and trendy ideas for decor, which means you can easily stay up-to-date on what’s in style.
Just like Google and Instagram, you can shop directly through Pinterest via their website or app for all of your decor needs.
Now that we’ve covered where you can look for your fall home decor inspiration, let’s delve into some of the newest fall trends so you can impress all of your house guests.
5 Fall Home Décor Trends to Try This Year
It can be hard to keep up with what’s in style. Luckily, you can create the perfect fall vibe with some simple changes.
- Start Off Strong with Warm Earth Tones
In the past, cool autumn tones were used as accent colors for fall decor. Now, there’s a shift toward warmer earth tones like amber, brown, and rosewood.
Warm, earthy tones create an inviting and cozy atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. You can incorporate these colors with a couple of decorative pillows, throw blankets, or some coffee table accessories.
- Have Fun with Some Funky Florals
Fake plants are out. It’s okay to have a few plastic accessories here and there, but there are better ways to keep your home looking fresh and seasonal.
Dried flowers and grasses are an inexpensive way to spruce up your space. You can buy them from Michael’s or even get bouquets delivered from Amazon.
But, it’s more fun to dry flowers yourself with a newspaper and a heavy book. Instead of tossing out your spring flowers next year, you can press them for fall!
- Ruffles and Curves are All the Rave
If you’re looking for a unique approach to your fall home decor, this is the answer: ruffles and curves!
This fall, you can have fun experimenting with pieces that give a nod to the 70s. With some whimsical pieces like ruffled accent bowls and curvy tabletop accent pieces, you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood.
- Include Some Vintage Embellishments
There’s nothing like the satisfaction of finding the perfect accessory at a thrift or antique store. The feeling you get when you know an item will perfectly tie a room together is unmatched.
We’ve been seeing a trend that leans toward vintage fashion for a while now, and it is carrying over to home decor. It could be anything from a cool vintage vase to a secondhand ceramic pumpkin. Whatever it is, you can say it was hand-curated by yours truly.
Remember, vintage is in! Don’t hesitate to buy a cool vintage piece if you see something that catches your eye.
- Add Texture to Your Fall Home Decor
Since fall is the season of change, it’s a great time to explore some new materials and textures to use in your home.
Velvet and marble are super in style this fall, and incorporating some texture into your decor can really refresh the space. Something as simple as a velvet blanket or pillow and some marble coasters will give your living room a trendy fall vibe.
Here are some other textures you could try out this fall:
- Mixed metals
- Hand-blown glass
