What’s hot in home decor this season? Ten top design bloggers share the fall decorating trends they can’t get enough of. Plus, big and small ways to incorporate the looks into your home.
The Trend: The New Neutrals
“Colorless design is something that is really striking a chord as new and fresh,” says Brian Patrick Flynn of Decor Demon. “It’s all about the use of texture and shape rather than color and contrast.” Here, grass-cloth wall covering, 3-D art and fur accessories add interest without bright hues.
Get the Look: White on White
“One of the ways I’m using it is by layering several shades of parchment with ultra white,” Brian says. “It’s gorgeous, fresh and unexpected. Hmmm, beige and unexpected are two words I never thought I’d use together.”
The Trend: The Curated Look
“The ‘curated look’ is the biggest design trend this fall,” says Lynn Byrne of Decor Arts Now. “It is a liberating trend; the only rule is that you collect and display what you love. What something costs is irrelevant; whimsy and quirkiness are a plus.”
Get the Look: Create a Gallery Wall
“The easiest way to inject the ‘curated’ look into your home: Hang your pictures and objects ‘salon’-style as a gallery wall,” Lynn says. This gallery wall in her home includes architectural drawings of the house, a Fornasetti plate, a print by Hugo Guinness and art sourced on Etsy and at thrift shops and flea markets.
The Trend: Mix-and-Match Styles
Designer Julia Buckingham Edelman adds that the curated look extends from accessories to furniture. “Instead of the idea that all interior spaces have to match, my clients are allowing me a more creative and unique approach to their interiors,” she says. We are taking more risks in mixing and matching style and design genres.” Here, a white-and-silver palette unifies new and old items.
