If the surge in “banana bread” Google searches and the 80% increase in sweatpants sales from April tell you anything, it’s that homeowners have been looking for ultra-comfort in food, fashion, and even home décor these last few months. While fall has always been synonymous with comfort, expect to see a new level of “cozy vibes” this season. Here are 5 fall décor trends that will transform your home into the ultimate autumnal oasis.
If you’re looking for a new piece of furniture this season, you can’t get any cozier than a Bouclé accent chair. Similar to sherpa or shearling, this super textured teddy bear fabric adds both warmth and dimension to any space without the annoyance of shedding.
With consumers focused on sustainable products, eco-friendly materials like cane, wicker, rattan, and bamboo are gaining massive popularity in 2020 fall home décor. Once reserved for your grandma’s front porch furniture, these materials can be found in everything from cabinets, chairs, dressers, and light fixtures.
The easiest way to transition your space from summer to autumn comfort is by adding a few natural touches such as a large vase filled with fall foliage (see above) or a stack of artistically placed firewood. Other natural elements that look amazing in fall décor are pinecones, acorns, Indian corn, mini gourds, pumpkins, and of course—apples!
Who doesn’t love a soft, touchable fabric like velvet? This fall is all about jewel-tone furnishings in teal, burgundy, cherry red, and burnt orange. If you’re not in the market for a statement piece, adding a few deep jewel-toned throw pillows is a great budget-friendly hack.
Use Cozy Throws in Unexpected Places
While cuddling up on the couch with a hot drink and chunky blanket always puts me in the fall spirit, these cozy fabrics don’t need to be restricted to living room! Switch things up this season by draping a faux sheepskin rug over the back of a dining chair or using a tartan blanket as a tablecloth. Weaving in a variety of textures (think fuzzy blankets mixed with chunky cable knits) will instantly make your home feel more welcoming and “high-end” with minimal effort.
You don’t have to do a major overhaul of your home to transition your space to fall. Simply adding in a few elements like a knit throw, a rattan basket, or a small vase of beautiful fall foliage will instantly give your home the warmth and comfort we all crave this time of year.
