With Summer coming to a close and school back in session, many are turning their attention to their homes to prepare for the upcoming cool Fall months. As whether you’re working from home or have returned back to the office full time, it’s nice to elevate your home space to keep it comfy, warm, and relaxing during the cooler seasons. Plus, if you’re looking to sell, it always helps to have some of the latest trends integrated throughout your home.
From paint colours to on-trend decor pieces, here are our top 5 interior design trends that will help you feel relaxed while boosting your home’s aesthetic.
Earthy, Neutral, and Warm Tones
During the cool Fall months we all crave a little warmth and comfort, especially from our home. Adding in decor pieces, furniture, or colours that have earthy, warm undertones is the perfect way to create the ideal space we all need.
Now if you’re looking to vamp up any of your rooms, choosing paint colours such as Muted Terracotta or Sandstone (both available from Behr) are ideal colours as they’ll not only warm and brighten up your space, but they’ll work all year round.
Finding decor pieces such as throws, rugs, pillows, or wall art within these same colours are also simple ways that can help you to achieve the on-trend, desired Fall look, without having to completely repaint or redo a room.
In With the Old: Hello Vintage
Over the past couple of months many homeowners have been hitting up vintage shops for furniture and decor pieces that elevate their space. Not only is it possible to find great items for incredible prices, but it also helps to create a unique space that is true to you, your design, and your home.
Instead of hitting up your go-to furniture or decor store such as the Brick or Winner’s, why not try finding a local antique or vintage place instead? It can potentially save you some serious money and will add a unique flare to your home!
Think Cozy Fabrics
Of course warm, neutral colours can help make your home appear more inviting, but during the cooler, rainer seasons, we all want something soft and cozy to cuddle up to. When changing up your space for the Fall, try adding in more rugs or throws that will keep you and your guests warm and cozy all day long.
Wool blankets or Sherpa rugs are very on-trend this season and the best part is that they can easily be swapped out for something a little less heavy in the Spring. Stick with neutral tones and colours and they will surely go with everything in your room.
Minimalist Home Office
While some may be heading back to the office, others are looking for ways to amp up their home work space. In the beginning, working from home was new and exciting, causing a great deal of owners to create extensively designed home offices. Now that the fun has worn off and working from home has become normal, the design trend has changed.
Minimalist work spaces are now key! Not only are they great for staying focused and attentive during work hours, but the look and vibe are easier to maintain. Try adding in storage bins or shelves to hold your work items so they are out of sight and mind. A decluttered, clean line look is simply the way to go!
Let There Be Light!
Natural light that is! Over the past two years and three lockdowns, we’ve all realized the importance of exposing ourselves to natural light throughout the day. As we head into a darker and gloomier season, it’s important to try and get as much natural light as possible!
Try swapping out your window fixtures or curtains for neutral tones and options that are semi-opaque. This will easily allow natural light to flow through, while maintaining your privacy when the curtains are shut. The best part is, you can easily switch back to heavier shades during the warmer months with little to no effort at all!
While we love Summer, it’s always exciting to embrace Fall! By thinking cozy, warm, and neutral during your design upkeep, you’ll easily be able to create a relaxing, comfortable and homey environment for the entire season. Just remember to have fun with it, make it your own, and enjoy!
