Interior Touches To Get Your Home Ready For Fall

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Fall is approaching, and it’s time to make sure your home is ready. Temperatures are set to tumble, and there are new trends to try out. Here are some fabulous interior design touches that will ensure your home looks fantastic in fall. 

Color switches

Summer is all about vibrant tones and bright colors. In the fall, we tend to adopt a more muted approach and embrace darker, more opulent tones. The great outdoors is always a source of inspiration when planning palettes, and many of us choose warm reds, oranges, and browns. If you’re looking for an alternative to autumnal classics, go for rich jewel shades. Think sapphire blue, emerald green, and ruby red. These colors work brilliantly when used as accents in plain rooms. A red vase will look incredible on a granite worktop in an industrial style kitchen, for example. 

Soft furnishings

When the days get darker and colder, most of us start looking forward to cozy nights in at home. One way you can prepare your house for cooler temperatures is to invest in soft furnishings. Throws, cushions, and rugs don’t just add color and interest to rooms. They also inject warmth and give your home more ambiance. Go for faux fur if you want the ultimate in snuggly chic. 


When it’s warm outside, it’s natural to want to make the windows a feature and celebrate natural light. As the colder months approach, you may be looking for a new focal point in the room. A fireplace is a great addition to living rooms and formal dining spaces. You can choose from all kinds of different styles to suit your taste and the look of your home.

Retro vibes

This fall, retro is big business. You’ll find everything from Art Deco frames to 60’s style standing lamps. The beauty of retro trends is that you can combine pieces from different eras to create really playful, unique looks. Trawl through yard sales or take a trip to antique stalls to find treasure from days gone by. The Internet is also a great place to scout out furniture and accessories.

Scandinavian chic

If anyone knows how to design interiors for cooler temperatures, it’s the Scandinavians. This fall/winter, channel the minimalist approach and celebrate your natural surroundings. White wash wooden furniture, stick to neutral shades for the walls and add intrigue with quirky accessories. Bring the outside in with large potted plants, and go for crisp, clean lines. Geometrics are popular this year. Add a chevron rug to a monochrome bedroom or go for printed wallpaper in the living room. Take a look at for more ideas. 

Fall is upon us, and this is excellent news for those planning a mini home makeover. Now is the perfect time to experiment with different tones and colors, try out some new looks, and add a little coziness to your home.
