Yes, a menagerie of pumpkins and autumn leaves gathered about speak to the time of year. But that doesn’t mean you have to turn your home into what could pass for a fall festival in order to capture the spirit of the season. Leave the gourds behind and embrace these fall interior design trends for a chic home that oozes fall coziness.  

Natural materials

We’re all about different textures when the weather takes a cooler turn, but this year’s natural materials takeover has us excited. “Woven textures in all their forms add softness to any space and are having a moment in fall decor,” said Jane at Home. “Think baskets of all shapes and sizes, interesting textiles, woven pendant lights, natural rugs, and cane and rattan furniture.”


This luxe material continues its dominance into yet another season. Expect to see the deep, rich jewel tones you love, and some more unexpected choices. “Soft, plush, and gorgeous velvet is a fantastic addition to your home decorating,” said The Turquoise Home. “Velvet is HOT this fall. You are going to see so many different velvet items that you won’t be able to prevent yourself from tossing a few into your cart. 


Speaking of pink, it’s super hot for fall. “Blush is no longer making an appearance just during the spring and summer months, Abbe Fenimore of Dallas-based interior desighn firm Studio Ten 25 told MyDomaine. “This versatile hue will be taking over fall color palettes with its subtle undertones and ability to make any space instantly chic.”

Benjamin Moore’s just-announced 2020 Color of the Year is First Light, a soft, not-too-sweet pink that is flattering and fun,” said Architectural Digest, so incorporating this hue into your home is as easy as a trip to the paint store.


Yes, this goldish-brownish yellow is a bold color choice. But, it’s one that instantly reads “fall,” and it offers a wide range of options when it comes to color pairings. Use it with dark blue or gray for a modern look. 

“Optimistic, earthy, bold and rich, ochre isn’t all that new—in fact, there’s something nostalgic about this burnt-yellow, all-natural hue,” said HGTV. “And now it’s back in a bigger way. Literally. We’re talking couches, duvet covers and throw blankets.”

Plinth Style Table

This “minimal, slab-style table trend” is everywhere right now, and you can take your pick of materials, from wood to travertine to marble.
