Want to decorate your home this Autumn? Here are the biggest fall home decor trends this year!

Fall is one of my favrotie times of year.

The cool weather is such a welcome change from summer. Things sort of slow down and cozy up. We aren’t to the holiday rush yet – but we are starting to get together and enjoy being indoors.

If you like to decorate your home seasonally, fall is a great theme to decorate for.

When should you start decorating for fall?

Fall decorating wildly depends on where you live and the climate. In many places, you can start decorating for fall at the end of August. If you live somewhere hot, that can feel ridiculous. It might be better to wait until Labor Day – even if it’s still hot, Labor Day is seen as the definite end of summer.

It’s kind of your last chance to decorate for the year without it being holiday specific with Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas coming in quick succession.

You probably already own a lot of fall decor staples. However, mixing in a few pieces of trending fall decor can make your room feel more current and on trend!

Be sure to check out my tips for transitioning from Fall to Christmas decor!

Here are some of this year’s biggest fall interior design trends!

Fall Home Decor Trends

Here are the best fall trends to get in on this year!

Earth colors

It should be no surprise that earth colors will be trending this fall. Think of tans, taupes, warm browns, as well as deep lush green colors. I’m seeing a lot of green + white + brown fall room ideas continuing into the end of the year.

Lots of texture

A great way to add the feeling of autumn room decor is to layer on lots of texture.

Textured textiles are the easiest way to do that. Pick throw pillows, blankets, or even furniture slipcovers with unique textures.

Mix things that are smooth – like velvet – with rough materials like sisal. Then, add something bumpy like a chunky knit pillow.

Keep your color palettes simple and instead layer on the texture.

Rattan + Caning

If you are looking to add wooden furniture to your home, look for something rattan or with caning. These are usually light wood in color, with neutral natural tones.

But, the special rattan or caning elements add that trending texture to your autumn decor.

Luxe velvet

Velvet is here to stay in a big way. Go big with lush, plush pillows, a velvet headboard, or even a velvet chair.

If you are grabbing pillows or blankets, look for things with a velvet-like sheen to bring this trend entirely into your living room.

Natural elements

Nature has been trending for a while and isn’t going anywhere. Look for natural, light colored wood tones.

You can also add natural stone in tile or in your accessories. A slate tray, for example, is unique and trendy.

Consider things like twisted branches with a wall hanging from them or a coffee table made of drift wood for a very natural look.

Brushed brass + gold

While glossy silver tones have begun appearing on the runway, I don’t think we are going to see them in mainstream homes quite yet.

Fall and cooler weather is compatible with a nice brushed metal finish. Go for a matte gold or brass.

You can pull these tones in easily with picture frames, lighting, knobs and hardware, or small accessories.

Green + white pumpkins

Want to decorate with faux pumpkins? Skip the orange this year. Go for white and light sage green instead for a more modern look.

Or, try your hand at making concrete pumpkins. This matte gray finish is very on trend!

Cozy ambiance

Think cozy this season, especially for living room decor. A big part of coziness is ambient lighting – look to lanterns or wall sconces so you can cut off the overhead light.

You can also add coziness by covering hard surfaces like wood tables with a tablecloth or big windows with a think lush curtain.

Light colored leather

Leather is another great way to bring in texture and light colored leather is really trending. Look for something cognac or lighter in the warm, brown family.

It could be as simple as leather piping on a pillow or leather curtain tie backs or as significant and timeless as a leather sofa!

Plaid + checks

If you want to add pattern to your space, consider a thick and bold plaid or buffalo check. Stick to neutral tones – tan, chocolate brown, chocolate, black, navy.

Plaid rugs are also great for layering under smaller more neutral rugs to get that pop of plaid without it being overwhelming.
