Fall is here, and it’s time to rethink your interior decor. Making simple changes in your living room can create a warm, inviting, and trendy space to get you through the cold months ahead.
Here are the five must-have items to decorate your living room this fall.
Jewel-Toned Accent Pillows
Jewel tones are a huge trend this fall season. Shades of peacock blue, emerald green, plum, and fuchsia are making a bold statement and creating an aura of elegance wherever they’re incorporated.
To take part in this trend, grab some jewel-toned accent pillows. These simple accessories make a huge impact and change the overall vibe of your living room without breaking the bank. For those with a talent for DIY projects, pick up a few yards of jewel-toned fabrics and make throw pillow covers. Doing so will let you take part in the trend without having to store seasonal pillows throughout the rest of the year.
More interior designers are adding a touch of darkness this fall. Black kitchens and furniture have become fan-favorites in 2019. You can capture this look without replacing your furniture or undergoing renovations with dark curtains.
Dark curtains inspire a look that’s a little Gothic and a little hibernation-friendly. You can get functional black-out curtains to close and block drafts throughout the winter, or dark printed sheers that allow a little light through. The glow from sheers creates a warm, dark feeling rather than being oppressive.
Crystals and Minerals
One of the growing decor trends throughout 2019 is the use of more earth elements, and pushing the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. Using crystals and minerals in decor adds a chic, boho vibe that blends naturalism and elegance.
For fall, set out a display of clear and dark minerals and crystals. White crystals catch the light and bring the room to life. Dark minerals, like the septarian available at Fossilera’s website, add a cryptic, mysterious element for balance in all things.
Stone Planters and Succulents
Another aspect of the natural, elemental trend that’s dominated throughout 2019 is using stone planters for succulents. Whereas many of the minimalist looks put the focus on the plant, this fall, the planter itself is the focal point.
Buy stone planters that overpower the plant within. This creates a symbolic look that emulates plants breaking through concrete, emanating perseverance, and strength. If you have succulents or other green, leafy plants at home, look for planters that allow the current container to fit within. By doing so, you avoid having to transplant your succulents. Stone planters also work well for holding candles and fall decor pieces like pumpkins and gourds.
Don’t be off-put by the faux fur trends of the past; modern faux fur trends are a lot more subtle. Using faux fur as an accent in your living room this fall adds a sense of warmth and coziness. It creates an inviting space where people will want to curl up with a cup of hot cocoa and talk the night away.
Look for a simple white faux fur area rug to lay over hardwood or laminate flooring. This should be a background object rather than a focal point and looks great under a coffee table. A simple black or white faux fur throw blanket looks great on a sofa and adds texture to the room.
Look for a high-quality, matte faux fur. Many of the cheaper options shed and create a mess or have a shiny, overtly fake look.
Choose a few of these looks to create the living room aesthetic you desire. This fall is all about embracing the magic of the season while looking elegant and inviting.
