Feeling fall: 10 seasonal ideas for the 2017 fall season

Something about fall sets us dreaming about cozy nooks and charismatic spaces filled with rich textures and bold accent pieces. This season is all about swapping the wispy décor of summer for surroundings with a little more substance. And boy, does it make for a striking statement. Here are 10 seasonal home design trends worth falling for.

1.    Everything Old Is New Again

Vintage accessories add character, especially if you’re on a budget. Scope out flea markets and yard sales for one-of-a-kind gems.

 

2.    Go with the Faux

 

Who says home design can’t be fashionable and frugal? Faux finishes are a great way to incorporate fall trends without breaking your home improvement budget.

 

3.    Opposites Attract Attention

 

And you thought blending was just for smoothies. Unleash your creativity and mix and match furniture, patterns, prints and textures throughout the room.

 

4.    Neutral: No Longer a Wallflower

The shades may be the same, but the personality is decidedly different. Neutral tones are showing their true colors with unexpected shape and texture.

 

5.    Brass from the Past

 

Brass is back and showing its mettle (see what we did there?) in surprising ways this season. Think furniture trim, light fixtures and unique accent pieces.

 

6.    Welcome Matte

 

Matte finish appliances and accessories are making a name for themselves this fall—especially in the kitchen, where stainless is steel is so last season.

 

7.    Museum-Worthy Walls

 

Turn a broad expanse of bare space into an art gallery wall by arranging framed photos, shadow boxes and wall hangings in a museum-style display.

 

8.    Touch and Go

 

This season it’s all about texture. From three-dimensional backsplashes and woven textiles to rich faux fur and chunky knit pillows, be sure to tie in all things tangible.

 

9.    Breathing Room

Nowadays we all need a soothing space to unplug and unwind. Create a cozy reading nook or bedroom hideaway with soft colors, comfy blankets and plenty of pillows.

 

10. Bring the Inside Out

Why should cooler temperatures keep us indoors? Create a fall-friendly outdoor retreat with plush patio furniture, soft lighting, warm rugs and a crackling fire pit.

October design trends: home office edition

.

Shelving, Shelving, Everywhere

 

Home offices are becoming increasingly more of a necessity for anyone working from “la casa.” Maximize and organize that space by putting an office wherever it fits. Shelving above and cabinets below a built-in desk keep the workspace tidy.

 

Let There Be Light!

 

Creating an office around a window is a great way to bring natural light into your workspace – and maybe even a spectacular view. Built-in bookshelves keep office supplies neat and close by. A soft chaise offers a comfy place to read or take a break.

 

Natural Wood

 

To create a cozier ambiance and add personality to your home office, use natural wood on the floor and exposed real or faux brick to accent the walls. The window seat cushion in red adds warmth while providing an inviting place to relax.

 

Under-the-Staircase Desk

 

When work comes home with you, a late night at your under-the-staircase desk may be just the occasional workspace you need. While everyone else is upstairs asleep, this hallway approach to an office is quiet and close to the kitchen for wee-hour caffeine cravings.

 

Clipboards Are the New Bulletin Boards

 

Ideas become inspirations when you display them visually above your desk. Clear clipboards hung neatly in rows against a dark wall color make your ideas stand out with a more organized and chic appearance than traditional bulletin boards.
