Ready to give your home a facelift? Check out some of these fall trends:
NEUTRALS. Rather than color and contrast, how about trying to blend your room with a palette of whites using texture and shape, such as corduroy and chunky knit pillows or a faux-fur throw in varying shades of white, beige and tan.
GALLERY WALL. Try combining the pictures and objects you love together as a gallery wall, giving your room a centerpiece attraction.
MIX AND MATCH. Gather together some of your more unique pieces and group into sets of three to five. Sometimes just changing up the pieces that you already have can give you a new appreciation for them. You can even check out flea markets for some great finds.
TELL A STORY. Instead of putting together a room using matching pieces, tell a story about your life with special photos and collectibles such as books or art by grouping them in a room. It not only adds your personality to a room, it can be a great conversation piece.
HIGH CONTRAST. Try painting a wall black or dark gray, then add some bright accent colors to give your room some life.
TEXTURED DETAILS. Hand-carved wood, hammered metals and textured glass are a wonderful way to inject life into a room. Handmade pieces can give your neutral room a strong focal point.
ADD AN ANTIQUE. Old toys, quilts and kitchen items can give your room an inexpensive, but one-of-a-kind touch.
THE COLORS OF FALL
Bright white, neutrals such as cognac, mauve and light gray, or cheery tones like orchid or light yellow are all part of the fall palette when decorating your home.
A glamorous brown, cognac gives a room warmth. Use it on walls, headboards or bedding. If you want to go with a cleaner, cooler look, work with a bright white to give your room a Scandinavian feel. It will reflect the available light.
If you’re looking for a neutral with some color, the pale pink-purple of mauve can be accented with deep purples, whites or even natural wood tones. Paint your room gray, then add in some bright accents such as red or yellow.
Soft yellow that leans a little toward green can add some cheer to your living room, kitchen or dining room.
A puple plum color can make a dining room or entry pop. Adding muted accents can tone down the feeling. A bright orangy-red color gives the room a true feel of fall, especially paired with deep reds, yellows or gray-browns.
Cobalt blue is still a favorite color and can be brightened up with some orange and white accents.
An earthy dark green hedging toward brown can give your home a feel of fall. Pair it with purples or other earthy colors like brown or gray. Royal blue is also a great fall color with a little brighter feel than navy. Add in white or light wood colors.
Bright fire engine red, paired with white or warm gray will let fall into your home. Or use burnt orange on your walls, then pair with navy blue and metal accents.
Dark teal is a great color behind accents of red, orange and yellow, giving your room a vibrant look.
