As I was mirthfully walking down the isle of my favorite home décor stores when I was stopped dead in my tracks by the site of brightly painted pumpkins. Yes, that is what I said, pumpkins! The vision of the plastic, pulp free robust symbols of the upcoming holidays got me thinking of Fall. Believe it or not, it’s just around the corner and I’m setting my sights on what hues and home design trends are about make their presence felt. When the weather makes a shift (a slight one for those of us here in Florida), you can make a few modifications to your home as well. There are a lot of trends that are really beautiful, but not everyone wants or needs to give their home a complete makeover. I can show you a few and easy ways to transition your home to the look of fall 2017.
The beauty in velvet is its ability to speak. It should have an elegant soft voice that’s heard, without over powering the conversation. It’s important to choose one show stopping upholstery fabric and velvet may just be your ticket! The fabric feels luxurious and welcoming for fall. When combined with smooth metals and natural textures it adds visual interest and palpable alleviation. If you don’t have the budget for an upholstered sofa add a velvet throw or accent pillows instead!
I am loving everything blush! From vintage glassware and bedding to my Sunday Brunch’s eye shadow, this refreshing color speaks of youth and femininity. If you’re not the frilly type popping a blush throw or frame into a space is less serious, and overwhelming. By coordinating blush with elements and materials found in nature you can create a more contemporary edge and looks stunning mixed with stone and marble. If you are looking for a more ethereal look you can create a space that’s monochromatic. No matter how you choose to add this gorgeous color into your space it will certainly keep you blushing.
I’m asked what colors look best with blush from time to time. I say it looks great with greys or warm neutrals, and fresh when paired with rose gold metallic or trendy copper. Here are a few of my favorite ways to incorporate the color blush into your home’s decor.
Hardly boring, neutral white can virtually go with everything and anything. From glossy to chalky it’s a calm and cool vibe that I love! White adds an inherent easiness to any space it graces. It fits seamlessly into any design scheme or style. I love how crisp white walls can bring a modern edge to a room’s vintage stylings or how a white accessory can pop against a dark wood toned console table.
Furniture & Accessories That Double As Art
Art is taking center stage this fall. It’s no longer an afterthought or left as the last part of the puzzle. People will be basing their entire rooms around it and I’m not just talking about the art you hang on your walls. I’m talking about furniture and accessories that double as art. We will see interiors that are anchored not only by art but artful design pieces.
