Fall Decor Trends – Five Tips To Spruce Up Your Homes
Fall brings with it melancholy, but also a dire need for change. And since changes always do good, give vent to this urge while redecorating at home where you have the opportunity to make small experiments which will in the end make a difference. Don’t let the bleak weather outside take over your spirit, so start playing with some redecorating ideas. To inspire you in choosing the best, here are some fall décor trends as seen on About.com
Let the colors in! This time, go for indigo blue, a color trend which designers say is a hangover from spring when denim accents came into the spotlight. Deep, indigo blues are still in fashion this fall, whether found in pillows, throws or lamp shades, and look especially beautiful with autumnal tones like orange and brown.
Last spring, home designers recommended mixed metals to spruce up interiors, but this falls brings with it the vitality and the warmth of copper. Try anything, from a set of candle holders, shiny bowls, light fixtures and the metal will invigorate the atmosphere inside with its unique reflections. If you happen to have some old accessories, such as vase, spray it with metallic copper paint and end up with lower costs.
From the vividness of copper we move on to the rigor of concrete. No, you don’t have to build anything, just bring in concrete lamp bases, terrariums, accent tables and tabletop décor. It may sound extravagant, but this is exactly what recommends this austere material, bringing strong accents into your homes this fall. It goes well with warm woods and metals.
Leaving the coldness of concrete behind, let’s turn again to color and texture. Do you remember the macramé in our grandparents’ homes? Well, after they were a huge trend in the 70’s, macramé is back in force in the interior design and this time climbs on walls for a more consistent visual effect.
Finally, since we went from color to texture, another tip to spruce up your homes is using textured ceramics. Ceramic vases, candle holders and lamp bases impart dynamism, setting to whole décor in motion.
