Fall is officially here! It’s time to trade those air conditioners and bright colours for jewel tones and blankets. This blog post will focus on this using this year’s decor trends to create the perfect fall space.
This year is all about creating a cozy space with layered rooms using bold patterns and colours throughout your dècor. Try using rich browns and grays, warm caramel, and deep greens. Pantone’s colour of the year Greenery is an excellent choice as it translates across seasons. Not interested in deep colours? This fall is going to see sophisticated pastels like blush pink and dusty blue, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Finally, black is always a safe bet to creating a sophisticated space, and it will really help other colours pop. Try adding an accent wall, black furniture, or fixtures.
TEXTURE, TEXTURE, TEXTURE.
Remember “layered rooms?”, by using a variety of fabrics and textures, you can create the ultimate cozy space – think cushions, blanket throws, table runners, curtains and more. These are often easy and inexpensive pieces to update a space for the season. Fabrics to look for this fall: velvet, fleece, flannel and cotton. Velvet is a very luxe fabric that can really elevate a room and add the perfect touch of glamour, while cotton is the perfect choice for transitioning between seasons and has a simplicity that can work with any space.
HYGGE – WHAT?
You’ve probably heard of Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) by now—the Danish term is used to describe the feeling of homeliness and coziness.
Hygge is a concept you can apply to both your décor and lifestyle just by making a few changes. Try creating a light focal point, adding rustic elements or by incorporating an ultra chic fur piece to enhance any room. When welcoming Hygge into your home, woolen pieces are a must have – these work as cozy sitting room pieces but can be easily incorporated into the bedroom as well.
WARM METALLIC DÈCOR
Whether it be a light fixture, faucet or accessory – matte black and other dark bronze colours are making an appearance in décor this fall. While brushed metals aren’t going anywhere, they are taking a back seat for now. Adding warm metallics like brass, copper or golden bronze will instantly add a bit of glam to a space, but give that warmth sought after in the cooler seasons. If going for a light fixture, pendant lighting is still in demand this season, or try a few table lamps in these finishes to really bring a space together.
This fall, go ahead and take some risks with your dècor and create the perfect space! Z-Lite will be there to help with fixtures to match any style. We can’t wait to see what you create.
