One of the easiest ways to get your home in a fall mood is by swapping out summery cushions for fall pillows in rich hues and interesting textures, and layering on plush throws. For 2018 I’m noticing a softer, more elegant take on fall coziness: think plum, cocoa, shimmering copper, and a bit of super-fluffy faux fur or sheepskin
Make a cozy first impression: Kick off the fall vibes as soon as you step through the door with a textured throw, pillow, and rug in warm, neutral hues. Pair up natural wood pieces plus a shiny accent for a can’t-miss look.
Consider color: When you’re planning your fall decor, it can be helpful to gather a few items on a table first, to see how they go together. Pick a soft blanket and layer on artwork, items from nature, and any decor you would like to use. Use your phone to snap a photo of your items together and refer to it while you’re out shopping to find pieces that coordinate.
Play up texture: If you’re going for a neutral or low-key color palette, but it’s looking a bit flat, you could probably use more texture. Aim for a mix of at least three different textures for a rich fall look. A few of my favorite textures for fall decorating include velvet, faux sheepskin, faux fur, nubby linen, woven items, copper, brass, and sisal.
It’s not all pumpkin and spice: Not a fan of pumpkin orange and maple leaf red? No worries. Try a rich plum as your main hue instead, and pair it with linen and cream. It’s elegant, current, and classic.
