Jewel tones can create a cozy atmosphere.
According to Gray Joyner of Gray Joyner Interiors, there has been a huge shift to jewel tones this season.
“These hues create warmth in a room and make you want to curl up in your little cocoon and read a book or even work on your computer,” she told Insider.
Green, in particular, has become a fan favorite this fall. It’s even showing up in kitchens, according to Leigh Spicher, interior designer and national design director for Ashton Woods.
Organic materials replace plastic decor pieces.
As more and more people think about sustainability, it translates to the interior world as well, according to Jennifer Verruto, interior designer, CEO and founder of Blythe Interior.
“Not only will throwing out plastic decor help the environment, but it will also look better,” she told Insider.
For example, instead of potting your fall mums in plastic pots, opt for something like terra cotta. It’s affordable and durable, and the earthy color is perfect for your fall decor.
Neutral living spaces infused with texture keep things interesting.
Some people seem less inclined to spend a lot of money on non-neutral pieces, according to Lori Evans, interior designer and co-owner of Evans Construction & Design.
But that doesn’t mean your home has to be boring. You can still go for a neutral color palette, but the designer recommended incorporating textured pieces into your decor to keep things more interesting.
For example, you can embellish the room with a velvet chair or sofa, or you can even add some rattan accents.
Curves replace clean lines in home designs.
According to Evans, curves are also making their way into the home space.
“Bogs are everywhere as furniture pieces and structural elements — windows, cabinets, doorways — you name it,” she told Insider. “They are graceful and soften a space almost instantly.”
The curves can still have both a modern and contemporary look, Spicher added. Just think of places where you can include circles, curves, or even octagons over the standard rectangle.
Vintage pieces replace overly modern interiors.
With frequent supply chain issues, vintage pieces make even more sense now, Evans told Insider. Older pieces also provide an air of authenticity that new, large pieces just can’t.
“You don’t have to run to antique stores (especially if your town doesn’t have a great one) because now you can buy from all over the country and have them delivered to your door with ease,” she said.
As a bonus, you know your neighbor won’t have the same stuff.
On the other hand, word art decor is out.
According to Verruto, creating family and cozy atmospheres has become more important than ever in recent years.
“Instead of plastering words all over your decor, you’re instead working on creating that vibe in your home,” she told Insider.
In other words, ditch the “gathering” sign and create a warm and welcoming space worthy of a grand gathering.
Seasonal decor is replaced by timeless, casual items.
Seasonal decorations are being replaced by timeless pieces that last longer than a specific holiday, according to Verruto.
“You save time, space and money by investing in decor that isn’t just for a specific holiday, but that lasts from fall through winter and even into the new year,” she told Insider.
For example, you can invest in a simple gold vase that can be easily updated to reflect a particular season or mood. As the holidays come and go, swap out different seasonal flowers or leaves to match the winter or fall vibes you’re trying to capture.
The modern farmhouse style looks a bit dated and boring.
Unless you actually live on a farm, the farmhouse style is officially on the wane for the rest of us, according to Spicher.
As a substitute, she recommended trying the ranch’s cool, urban cousin: industrial style.
“It’s still casual and comfortable, but a little hipper,” Spicher told Insider.
Sterile, minimalist interiors are the trend this season.
Minimalism, according to Joyner, creates the feeling of a sterile space.
“We’re done with simple and smooth in favor of features that tell a story,” Spicher told Insider.
Add bold paint or texture to walls, the designer suggested, or choose some funky, playful chairs from a local furniture store or resale store.
Open floor plans are replaced with designated spaces.
According to Eilyn Jimenez, interior designer, founder and creative director of Sire Design, open concept is a thing of the past.
People are drawn to spaces that are more separate and tailored to their use, rather than wide open spaces where furniture floats.
“For example, one client wanted to turn their living room into a bar and lounge area because they love to entertain and no longer need a second living room,” she told Insider.
Completely white spaces are replaced with natural wood to bring warmth and character.
While many people love the fresh, clean vibe of an all-white kitchen or bathroom, Spicher says it’s time to let it go.
To keep it warm, wood is much more common this season as a substitute for the all-white look.
According to Joyner, the natural material brings warmth and grounding to a space.
Over-embracing trends is a thing of the past.
According to Jimenez, trendy patterns and colors, like fashion, can often go out of style and quickly feel dated.
“We often compare fashion to interior design because it has a lot of the same ebbs and flows,” she told Insider. “Just as it’s always helpful to have timeless staples in your closet, it’s also helpful to have timeless pieces in your home.”
Instead of going all in on a trend, the designer recommended experimenting with accessories first. Switching up a blanket or adding a bold vase are easy ways to dip your toe in a trend without spending too much time or money.
