Dress Up Your Home with these Fall Décor Trends

Summer is over and it’s time to update homes in Leander TX with the hottest new fall design trends. These are stylish tweaks you can make now to keep your home in step with the latest décor.

Velvet

This plush fabric has great visual and tactile appeal. Especially popular in rich jewel tones, it can be used for accent pillows, sofa and chair upholstery, throws and more. Velvet is available in an array of textures and patterns that you can mix and match.

Graphic Prints

Large geometric patterns can be relaxing, dramatic or somewhere in between. This fall you’ll find them on everything from area rugs with subtle geometric shapes to groups of boldly colored framed prints. Mount a quartet of bright prints above your fireplace for an unmistakable focal point in any room.

Animal Prints

Faux fur is big this fall in both fashion and home décor. Make a statement in your home with a faux leopard-print wing chair or tiger faux-hide area rug. As with any bold trend, if you’re unsure of this look, start small. Try a throw pillow or ottoman before you splurge on a leopard-print sofa.

Low Seating

Short people rejoice! Low seating pieces are all the rage. Modular sofas and chairs with soft lines and sinuous curves will bring a hip lounge-style vibe to your living room. Pair them with lower coffee tables and ottomans to make your place the top hangout for your friends and family.

Bohemian Global

Key characteristics of this eclectic style are layers of colorful patterned fabrics, a mix of high and low design and items from around the world. You might mix Grandma’s antique English china with sumptuous fabrics from India and cheap flea-market baskets.

Plaster

At once subtle and yet incredibly detailed, plaster art objects and furniture are on trend. They’re often presented with an element of humor. Some designers have displayed formal plaster busts wearing bright knitted caps or scarves.  

Macrame

Yes, macramé is back! The familiar knotted plant hangers are accompanied by macramé shelf hangers, wall décor and even large knotted room dividers.
