We are already half way through the month of September. Can you believe it? The weather might still be pretty warm up here in the PNW, but I've been noticing signs of fall! The leaves are slowly starting to change, it seems to get dark earlier each night, my neighborhood is suddenly silent during the day with all the children back in school, and pumpkin spice flavored everything is in every super market and coffee shop. Surely that means it's time to start decorating for fall. If you are looking for inspiration, or to add some new decor to your fall lineup, here are the top 5 fall design trends for 2023:
1.) Rawrrrr with Animal Prints
Remember how popular animal prints were in the late 90's/early 2000's? As with fashion, interior design is also taking a lesson from that era. Animal prints can be incorporated into your home through blankets, rugs, pillows, and accent pieces.
2.) Bring the fall colors indoors
Decorating with colors you see in nature during the fall, really brings the season into your home. This could include choosing to decorate with bold yellows, oranges, deep reds and browns.
3) Glass is the reason for the season
In the stores this season you will begin to see statement glass accents. When I was in Cost Plus World Market last week, I noticed they had a large selection of glass pumpkins. You will also see glass accents take the form of glassware, candle sticks, vases and more.
4.) Think British
Interior Design Expert Colleen Simonds says that fall design comes down to "warm & cozy cottage in the English Countryside come Autumn". Doesn't that sound amazing?! You can achieve this in your home through choosing items like a metal lamp, patterned bedding, pasture framed art & stripped curtains.
5) Get textured
Adding texture to your deign pieces makes the space more interesting. Velvet is expected to be the top material this fall. Switched up your duvet to a crushed velvet one would make your bedroom even more cozy. Other ideas include natural woven pumpkins, & throw pillows and blankets in different cozy materials.
