From Blue-Black to Stock Tank Tubs: Here Are Fall’s Top Home Trends
Dear decor addict, we know you look forward to the fall interior design forecast the way fashionistas await the September issue. And ohhh do we have a superb lineup this season. At once adventurous and easy to implement, these seven rising trends have us plotting the very best kind of fall makeover—a home one.
Blue-Black Paint Jobs
ICYMI, matte black urrythang is the premiere trend of fall 2017. And when it comes to walls, just about every color agency is dubbing deep bluish black their hue du jour. (The dimension gives character and luxe factor.)
A year after the Danish lifestyle philosophy of hygge took us by storm, Scandi-inspired decor accents are only picking up steam. Think shearling hides, Danish-modern accent chairs and loads of linen regardless of season, for a look that’s contemporary and crisp but also über cozy.
Your ’90s Steve Madden platform slides are back in style...and guess what? So is your ’90s living room palette. This versatile neutral has been on a lengthy hiatus, but it's back with a fresh vengeance. The key to sophisticated beige? Structured lines (no slouchy silhouettes, please) and a healthy mix with other creamy neutrals—like blushes and warm whites.
No-Rules Pattern Mixing
Every fall welcomes an onslaught of textiles, and this season it’s all about maximalism in the print-pairing department. We’re talking graphic palm fronds against rich ikats. Or a deer hide rug with a chintz sofa and chairs. Or all of the above. The only real “rule”: If you like it, add it to the mix.
Trims, mantles and moldings are traditionally painted in a contrasting color (typically white). But this fall, we’re seeing designers coat them in the same shade as the surrounding wall. The 3-D effect is simultaneously modern and storied, and we’re downright obsessed with it.
Heavy On Rattan
Natural wovens have been on the up and up for the past few years. This season, expect to see them in even more unexpected places—like a massive dining room pendant lamp or a porch chaise used indoors. Consider it the perfect antidote to your played-out reclaimed-wood addiction.
