The sunny summer weather is suddenly gone and fall chills have set in! While we’ll miss the warmer temperatures, here at GR Home, we’re looking forward to fall decorating. We noticed some beautiful home design tips and trends that have been circulating for fall 2013, and we wanted to share:
Brighten a space with sparkling embellishments. Glittering chandeliers, sparkling fabrics, metallic accents – they’re all in for fall decorating, according to Elle Décor, and we agree! With the gray skies and gloomy fall weather, brighten up your space with something sparkly. Houzz.com also took note of this trend for gold finishes throughout the home.
- Pop some color into a neutral space. Graciela and our team here at GR Home love bright, brilliant color to perk up a room, and it seems to be a trend for many people – start with a neutral palette of grays, beiges, or creams and add some brilliantly colorful accents for flavor and personality.
- Bring in the black. We’ve loved using black in decorating for a long time – Graciela has said before (check out this interview from March) that she loves black. The home design world is catching on, recommending black accents and even black walls. The color makes a dramatic statement, especially if it’s adorning a whole wall.
- Add texture with feathers. Houzz.com is loving feathers for use on decorative accessories, as well as the featured pattern on home accents like tabletop décor and lamps. Feathers add eclectic textures and a unique design statement wherever you have them!
- Put some studs on it. Update tired furniture and accents with studs and rivets! The decorative accents add a metallic shine along with texture and a personalized statement. We love this trend as a way to add sophisticated detail to a space or piece of furniture.
As you decorate for fall, and prepare for the holiday season (it’ll be here before you know it!), we hope these tips and trend insights help to point you in the right direction.
