Spoiler Alert: They left traditional orange pumpkins in the patch this year and gave plaids and checks a year off.

Cozy bedding in natural tones and textures

Plaids and checkered-patterned bedding are taking a rest this year as natural tones and textures take the top spots. This year, it’s all about soft and subtle by creating a warm, earthy, and cozy vibe.

Dreamy kitchens

Move over oak cabinets. There’s a new kid on the block. This year’s cabinet trends are chic and sophisticated. And, can we talk about the marble countertops? Timeless. Colors that you would use to paint your walls are now part of your cabinet décor. Darker cabinet colors paired with stone countertops are today’s signature elements and a beautiful way to transform your kitchen into a stunning hub for friends and family to gather, as seen is this beautiful kitchen by Granite and TREND Transformations.

Work From Home Soothing retreats

Last year’s “new normal” is today’s “back to normalcy”—with a fresh twist. Over the past year, many transformed their living areas into “work-from-home spaces.” This season, it’s all about taking back those spaces and transforming them into areas of soothing retreats.

White Pumpkin Fall Decor

Orange pumpkins are getting a pass this year, while white (and green) pumpkins take center stage as this season’s centerpieces and home décor. This beautiful look is consistent with this year’s clean and fresh seasonal trend.

As for die-hard traditionalists who won’t give up their orange pumpkins—we get it. Just think: This trend leaves more pumpkins in the patch for you to pick and bring home! And lest we forget about delicious pumpkin pie! White pumpkins can’t compete with that!

A Return To Velvet

Although velvet never goes out of style, designers may give it a rest for a while. This year, designers are bringing velvet back into the spotlight as part of this season’s home décor trends. As one of the most luxurious fabrics, velvet adds instant class and sophistication to any room while also elevating the “cozy factor.” Whether you go all out with a velvet couch or use it as an accent for pillows, throws, or even an accent chair, velvet is one fabric that registers high on the cozy meter during this season.

Vintage pieces

Vintage treasures have a way of bringing a sense of nostalgia to any space. These pieces of the past have a story to tell. So, what better time to showcase them than now? Design experts are breaking out everything vintage this fall and incorporating them in fun and functional ways that are sure to be real conversation starters.

Fresh take on tablescapes

You may be surprised to see this “lighter” version of an autumn tablescape. This season, fall leaves and jewel-toned tablecloths are replaced with nature’s own greenery, complemented by crisp white linens. And, you can’t help but notice the white pumpkins and pastel candles. It’s a beautiful design twist that also welcomes a renewed sense of calm as we give thanks.
