While autumnal colors and leaf-inspired ornaments are always centerstage in the fall, there are fresh interior trends each year that are totally worth redecorating for. Whether you're planning your Thanksgiving decor this year or sprucing up your house for Veterans Day dinner, keep in mind these 2019 fall decor updates -- and how you can apply them for a home that will wow your guests.
Wood and twigs as autumn decor -- no-brainer, right? This year, it's not just a seasonal style; it's more like a design movement. Furniture designers and interior decorators are even exploring well beyond hardwood. There are lamps made of piled branches, mirrors framed with woven grass (above), and even chairs accented with coconut shell pieces. This is a go-ahead for the rest of us to mix and match various natural elements and textures.
If you like the feel of natural materials but want a fresher, softer atmosphere than all those somber browns, this 2019 trend is for you. It's all about the light, almost faded look, like sun-drenched wood colors and warm, barely-there grays. Sounds like an unusual palette for fall? It's actually quite adaptable with a few accents, like a vase of wheat on one corner and a foliage wreath on another.
It seems like the reign of millennial pink isn't truly over! This time, though, this sweet color is more grownup, subtle, and refined. The dominant hue is blush, which is exactly as soft and light as it sounds. There are also sightings of dusty rose or old rose, which is more in tune with the traditional colors of autumn. Both these shades are a far cry from the bright, sugary pinks of our childhoods.
Blue, yellow, and red have gotten a luxe update in recent design seasons. Instead of the usual crayola brights or baby pastels, decorators are using the deep jewel tones of these primary colors. Think midnight blue, navy, mustard yellow, burgundy, and ruby red. Word to the wise, though: Apply these hues sparingly. Just one or two investment pieces -- like a mustard sofa or a dark blue wall -- would be enough.
Another decor trend in recent years that just keeps resurfacing is the use of velvet and similar textiles. This trend works so well with the jewel tones described above. We're seeing an array of velvet couches, throws, and even headboard upholstery. The best part? This soft, warm fabric is perfect for autumn cozying.
Big patterns in bold colors! This unstoppable decor trend is splashed all over the wall, with wallpaper, decorative molding, and of course, artworks. If you're not feeling brave enough for this trend, don't worry -- you can simply browse affordable canvas prints to see which eye-catching beauty you can hang on your wall this season.
This design movement first flourished in the 1920s, characterized by geometric patterns, dramatic colors, plus sparkle and shine (especially gold). If you want an example, look no further than The Great Gatsby -- both the book and the movie embody the opulence and glamour of the Art Deco era.
The 2019 version of Art Deco is more minimal and uncluttered. It's about incorporating a few key pieces: a choice artwork, a brass umbrella lamp, and some scallop-patterned upholstery should do the trick.
