I love rich, muted reds, warm-toned neutrals, and deep greens for fall. To support this palette, we’re layering in different fabric types (hello, velvet!) to help bring dimension to these colorways. From waffled throws to block-printed linen pillow covers, texture and color bring richness to our Fall designs.
Here are my 4 favorite trends and tips for fall styling:
Incorporating patterns and textures like bouclé, plaids, and stripes evoke a moody atmosphere. These patterned and textured pillows make the window seat welcoming and cozy. Having a wooden tray and some brass candlesticks invites you to sit down with a cup of tea and read a good book. The details only matter by what you do with them!
Decor pieces from elements like glass, ceramic, and marble give a grounded aesthetic in warm and cool hues. Used in simple yet functional ways, these details help keep you organized when adding styling layers like branches and flowers. Geometric marble objects give our styled vignettes a grounded feel to the consoles and coffee table.
Reclaimed wood’s natural texture and imperfections are part of what draws us to this beautiful wood. It feels almost vintage, old-meets-new look. I’ve styled the wood with all the other details we’ve discussed: glass, ceramic, marble, organics, books, and metal, to create these curated moments. Each vignette adds warmth and a vibe of moodiness to the decor.
One of the best ways to infuse nature into your space is through organic signs of life: branches, plants, and decorative grasses. In many ways, it establishes the room’s tone and adds a finishing layer to each space.
I always have a pair of planting shears on photoshoots to walk into nature and use real branches from the homeowner’s fall foliage and trees. It costs nothing and helps the homeowner prune for the fall!
