Since early spring, the whole world has been spending a lot more time at home than usual. You’ve probably moved furniture around a few times to change your home’s appearance and also to get some workout. However, it’s already fall, and the pandemic is still here. It is time for some trendy changes and additions to welcome the fall months. Changing your home’s aesthetic to fit better the season can help you feel more comfortable and cozy at your own house.
Autumn is closer than ever, and you should be excited to make your home cozier and warmer. Luckily, for you, fall 2020, home trends are not just about dark and heavy, and you don’t need to overhaul and change every single item to transform your house.
Much like fashion designers, interior designs take into consideration fashion, history, and modern art to find out what should be the next big thing in home decor. This year, many interior designers believe that fall is not about significant changes. In fact, a few additions or changes can make your house à-la-mode and fresh.
Uncertainly, there are some major decor suspects that translate to fall decor, including warm toned colors and rich shades, decadent textures, and of course, earthy scents. This season, interior design is all about smart playing with the lighting and a new focus on details. Layering with lighting includes buying the right lamp for the right living room. Choosing a lamp that suits your house is bringing light to your furniture’s details and evoking a certain feel in your home.

Layering And Textures
Layering textures in your house during fall is an art itself. Being around and touching various layers of cozy textiles is fantastic during the fall season. It gives your sofa and living room a nice feel and makes space look fresh but also stylish. Layering textures is downright fancy and posh! Much like your wardrobe during the cold times, having layers of different textures feels cozy. It’s a straight-up invitation to curl up in your favorite blanket, have your favorite tea while watching your favorite reality show. Many interior designs swear by this trend as it makes your home’s update feel effortless and modern. It can be done through layered rugs, textural throws on the sofa, and most definitely oversized colorful pillows.
Layering rugs is done right now by the savviest home decorators. A natural colored or unicolored rug overlapped with a patterned rug is the perfect add up to your house this fall. Also, PILLOWS! And MORE PILLOWS! There is absolutely nothing that screams comfort more than layered pillows. For a low-cost fix, you can get a pillow cover to your old pillow.
Rattan used to be for patios only, but in 2020, it became the superstar of home decor trends. It’s having a flashy moment in modern living rooms and even bedrooms. Rattan comes from a vine-like palm plant, and it’s a natural material used in baskets, furniture, baskets, and many other home accents. The material is so flexible that it can be bent and shaped to different patterns and forms. As it is water-resistant, it is mainly used in patios. However, interior designers have decided that Rattan belongs inside as well, in our living rooms and even bedrooms. It can be used on furniture, tabletop accessories, and even lightings. Whatever you put it on, Rattan looks and feels great. And don’t worry, it won’t mess up your home styles. Rattan goes well with boho, traditional, coastal, and even contemporary. It can easily be painted for more color and shape. If you have been shopping lately, you probably noticed Rattan present in many furniture pieces. If your budget is tight, you can find many vintage Rattan pieces on Etsy and other websites.
Monochromatic Color Palettes
Yes, colors are fun. Having a mixture of warm and cold shades can make your home feel fresh and tropical. However, this fall, there is a new trend concerning colors. Monochromatic palettes are so à-la-mode this year. Decorating with a monochromatic color scheme palette means using the same tone throughout most room elements, from the wall paint to the artwork, furniture, and even the floor. A monochromatic color scheme doesn’t mean that your entire living room needs to be one shade of blue or green. In fact, the shades of the same color can vary from a dark shaded floor to lighter furniture and a painting on the wall that combines the two.
Having layered lighting in a room evokes different emotions as the lighting changes and highlights different spaces in the same room. Layering Lighting in a home may not be as easy or complicated as you may think. Using different layers of lighting can evoke comfort and beauty. Focus on three layers: ambient, task, and accent lighting. The first can provide illumination so you won’t stub your toe at night when you go to the kitchen for your 2 AM snack. The second for specific tasks and the third for style. This latter may or may not add extra light. It comes in the form of candles and sparkling chandeliers. Layering lighting in a room simply means stepping beyond the simple general light and thoughtfully creating a generous lightscape.
A Touch of Nature
The pandemic has brought upon everyone’s stressful moments. While quarantined, most people missed nature, which is why it’s now more important than ever to have a touch of nature in our own home. Simple additions can help us stay calm and hope for a better future. Bringing a simple touch of the natural world into your house will make you feel relaxed and at ease. There are many ways to incorporate this fall trend into a room, including houseplants, natural materials like wood, and even fountains.
Home decor has switched recently to comfortable and stylish. Cozy corners are still trendy this fall. Creating a corner that gives your house that lounge vibe while also inviting you to sit on, read a book with a cup of tea is so much in style this season. Your cozy corner can be in the living room, bedroom, or even in the balcony. You just have to choose the brightest corner, add a houseplant, layered pillows with different patterns, a lamp if you are planning to read there, and an artistic painting as the cherry on the top.
While the world is one big chaos right now, adding a few items or redecorating your home for fall could be exactly what you need to get things in order.
