Fall Colors and Trends

Fall is an excellent time to update your home and add a few new touches before the short winter days keep you indoors. Not all of your modifications need to be huge alterations. There are inexpensive ways to add a little holiday décor to your home in the fall, or simple ways to bring in a few of the hottest trends.

Color
gray chest Though the days are getting cooler, the colors of autumn are warm and bright. Rich reds, yellows, and shades of orange are great choices when aiming to make a room feel cozy. A splash of color inspired by fall creates warm, inviting rooms with all-season appeal.

For fall of 2012, gray and yellow is the color combination of choice. All shades of gray are popular – the perfect neutral base upon which to add a dynamic burst of color. Driftwood grays are calm and restful while a touch of yellow will provide a highlight. A bold pattern on some accent pillows creates a sophisticated standout look.

The color of the year, Tangerine Tango, is still prominent in today’s design palettes. Look for it on everything from pillows and throws to lamps and rugs.

Accessories
Accent pillows allow you to change up your décor seasonally and keep your room looking fresh and new throughout the year. You can find a wide array of colors, fabrics, and designs, making it easy to match to your style or to add a touch of the current trends.

For a hot on-trend look, you may wish to incorporate colorful Uzbekistani-inspired Suzani patterns into your accessories. Design motifs for this tribal textile usually include flowers, leaves, or suns and moons. A Suzani pillow, curtains, or upholstered accent chair provides an instant update to your décor.

To make a room more intimate, include a quilt or a throw draped over a chair or the back of the sofa.

Décor
A key look on-trend now is gray washed finishes, inspired by the French antique style. The patina of grainy wood, unfinished with a gray or white wash, offers a rustic feel that can be dressed up or down.

If you’d like to bring in a piece of accent furniture, a great option for fall can be found in the upscale vintage looks inspired by French flea markets. Incorporating vintage-inspired fabrics, in particular, can soften your décor. Vintage color illustrations reproduced on natural fabrics like linen creates a fresh mix old style with new material.Rizzy Home bedding

Fur is in. Faux fur and animal prints bring a funky flare and texture. Today’s faux fur is made from materials that look and feel like the real thing. Place a faux fur throw on a chair as an inviting accent. An animal print rug or faux skin can bring a strong visual interest as well.

Holiday
Don’t underestimate the transformative power of new bed linens or a set of towels to update a room. As the holiday visiting season approaches, you may want to consider a fresh addition so that guests will feel that special touch in your home.

Much of the focus during the holidays centers around the dining room table. New table linens or a festively-patterned table runner can lend some autumn elegance. Layers of fabrics on windows, extra area rugs, or seasonal scented candles create a lovely backdrop for Thanksgiving celebrations.
