Home Design Trends for Fall
Posted September 20th, 2012 | by The Update
Just in time for the turn of the season! Check out these tips for the latest decor and home design trends for Fall 2012:
Mixing and Matching Styles
Gone are the days of matchy-matchy rooms and here to stay are rooms that incorporate diverse design styles.The combination of Mid-century modern mixed with a traditional wingback chair and Ikat draperies gives this room personality.
Gray: The New Neutral
“Everything is going gray. It’s the new beige,” says interior designer Shane Inman. ”Neutrals have been huge since the start of the recession, and over the last year or so, gray has become the dominant shade,” Stacy agrees. Combine various shades of gray for a rich layered look.
Bring On the Gold
“Gold is totally back. But in a brushed finish versus a dated, high-polish version,” says Shane. Bring a gold accessory, like these painted glass bottles, into your space to create a bit of glamour.
The Jewel Box Effect
Make the most of the space with big-drama style, rich jewel tones and elaborate detailing. “Homes are like little jewel boxes. Think smaller-scale items that are flashy, with precious metals woven into the fabrics, finishes on furniture done very richly or wallpaper studded with rhinestones,” says Lori. This rivet-studded wallpaper creates both texture and glamour, even in a small room.
“Mad Men mania is driving a return to midcentury modern with clean lines,” Stacy says. “But most people don’t want to live in a home that looks like it was taken off the set.” To get in on the trend without going overboard, mix a few sleek midcentury pieces — like color-blocked pillows or a vintage Murano glass lamp — with your existing furniture.
