Fall Home Décor Trends: What’s In and What’s Out

Last Updated on January 6, 2020

Fall is an exciting time as we transition from warm summer nights to the cool and crisp ones found in autumn. Longer nights mean spending more time in your home. Whether it’s cozying up by the fire or entertaining for the upcoming holidays, today’s homeowners are switching things up by swapping their light and airy summer looks for warm and cozy fall décor.

Before you break out the pumpkins, however, here’s a look at what’s in and what’s out for this season’s fall home décor.

What’s In

Warm Colors and Velvet Textures

Warm up the room by swapping out cotton pillows and throws for richly colored orange and red velvet ones. It’s an easy way to welcome the season – and your guests – while bringing a cozy feeling to your home.

Go Dark, Go Green

Dark colors like black and dark brown are making a comeback and this fall season is all about the dramatic. Dark green is a popular cabinet color choice for this fall and winter; this natural hue blends beautifully with almost any home décor.

Marble Look

Marble is totally in. Granite Transformations makes quartz countertops which create the gorgeous look of marble, without the scratching, staining and heat damage that tend to accompany regular marble. Pictured below is Carrarra from the Trascenda™ Collection.

Layered Look

Layering your furniture with soft, cozy throws is a beautiful way to add a touch of warmth to the space while also providing the convenience of a quick wrap on a chilly night.

What’s Out

Copper Furniture

Copper home accessories, along with marble and rose gold, have had their day. The new trend is shying away from these overly shiny pieces and moving toward classic, aged brass. If you’ve already invested in real copper fixtures or a copper farmhouse sink, however, your investment is safe, as these genuine accessories remain timeless and will hold their value.

Bland Furniture Sets

Generic furniture sets are on their way out. The new fall décor trend is to mix and match different designs and styles to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Brushed Metal

Brushed metals can give off an industrial look that designers say have seen their day. This fall, look for shiny, warm metals like bronze and gold, as these will add a new dimension of sophistication to your home.
