Fall 2015 Color & Pattern Trends

Autumn Has Never Ever Looked So Good!

cozy fall sweaters

September 23rd marks the start of the autumn season! The season of chunky knit sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, brisk mornings, LOTS of turkey, apple picking, leaves changing, boots, darker hues and days you just want to stay curled up in bed. Although our favorite memories and pastimes of this special time of year stay the same, trends are always changing! So what’s in store for this year? Let’s take a peek…

Color: This Fall we see a more toned down palette that incorporates hues such as mustard, muted orange, navy, olive green and even a pretty blush. There were two shades however that flourished above the rest and seemed to bloom not just from the runway but also everywhere in between…

Burgundy in Fashion:

Taking cue from marsala, the Pantone color of the year, this rich, earthy hue can take a variety of forms. Add a little purple and you get a beautiful sangria shade or add a little more red and you get a refreshing cranberry color. All these tones of burgundy and more can be seen taking front and center this autumn! Bags to coats, dresses to shoes, just add a pop of burgundy to stay stylish and on trend.

Burgundy in the Home: 

From fashion to your front door, burgundy can also be seen trending in home decor. From the switch to colder weather, this warm and spicy hue gives your home a cheerful energy without being over the top. Whether you are looking for a total room transformation or just a quick fall fix, easily layer in burgundy through rugs, pillows, throws, wall decor or even a new statement couch!

Greige in Fashion: The other color that’s trending is greige, a miraculous combination of grey and beige. The hottest neutral this season, greige can compliment just about anything. Even Bobbi Brown labeled her NEW fall collection after this perfectly chic tone, so you know it must be sticking around (at least for the moment!). If you want to dabble in this trend, we suggest trying a jacket or blazer, a pair of ankle booties, or even the greige eye palette to finish your look.

Greige in the Home: Although you can see greige trending throughout the home, it tends to stick to the walls. From paint to wallpaper to wall decor, this soothing and complimentary hue provides a peaceful and modern space that can easily be livened up with a pop of a brighter tone.

Prints: This season in prints we see some of the classics staying strong! There was a lot of Plaid seen on the runway including alternative prints such as houndstooth, gingham and checkered. A variety of stripes made their debut and a few other favorites that can be seen below…

Plaid in Fashion:

Plaid remains an iconic print for fall and winter and this year was no different. This classic and warm look could be seen adorning coats, dresses, skirts, scarves and bags. With more of a “tartan” influence, we were happy to see that this nostalgic print wasn’t going anywhere.

Plaid in the Home:

It’s very easy to add in a plaid touch to your home. Change up your bedding, swap out your summer pillows for a variety of plaid ones or throw a flannel blanket over your sofa for a warm and cozy fall upgrade.

Tribal in Fashion:

Being a huge fan of the tribal look, we were delighted to see it once more on the fall 2015 runway. From beautifully adorned jackets to printed skirts, tapestry covered totes and layers of global prints incorporated with tribal inspired jewelry, this trend is one of our favorites!

Tribal in the Home:

Bringing a chic and exotic touch to your home, incorporating patterned ottomans, kilim rugs and tribal inspired artwork and decor, can easily transform your home into a global oasis. Remember, you don’t have to be a world traveler to embrace this trend!

Florals in Fashion: 

This year, florals were larger than life and whimsical! Floral appliqués were a huge trend, transforming ordinary neutral garments into beautiful art. Giving clothes a realistic feel, we were pleasantly surprised at how much we fell in love with each and every floral design.

Florals in the Home: 

Although when autumn comes around we think of darker and richer colors, beautiful, eye-catching florals still have a place this season. From pillows to decorative wall murals, a refurbished dresser or new shower curtain, bring the whimsical floral to your home anyway you see fit.

Back to School: DIY (WALL)POP Family Organization Chart

DIY Family OrganizerWe love what Amanda from Mommy Mandy did with our Gold Confetti Organization Kit. She was so creative and decided to frame all the pieces! Plus, she did the middle section with chalkboard paint, for extra space to add notes.

“We are dead in the middle of summer right now with about 3.5 weeks left before school starts. My kids are having a wonderful summer yet are already looking forward to school starting (they miss their friends). I decided that with their summer activities and then activities come fall I would create a family organization chart using WallPops Organization Kit. I also used a old frame to make the Organization Chart.”

What a great idea! View the rest of the post and more photos here.

Do you have a bedtime routine with your kids? {A review of WallPops.}

Peel & Stick Solar System Poster

Michelle from The Adventures of Supermom recently wrote a beautiful post about how the Solar System Decal has become a part of her children’s bedtime routine.
They have such a creative way of combining an educational product with a fun activity. We love this idea!

“Superdad has created a special bedtime routine that he does with our girls before he reads them books….they explore maps and talk about far off places.

Before bed they pick a place, point a finger and off they go.  He likes to quiz them about continents and capitals and lakes.  I often hear them talking and laughing from their bedroom.  It really is a special time between a daddy and his daughters and I’m touched that I hear the sweetness of the moment.”

6 Smart Decorating Tips for Renters: Make a Temporary Spot Feel Like A Home

We love hearing ideas on to decorate rental homes and apartments! Mary Fetzer from She Knows compiled a wonderful list of ways to decorate your rental damage free— which included our NuWallpaper in Purple Ariel.

Purple Damask Removable Wallpaper“If your landlord won’t let you paint the walls, consider the easy alternative: temporary wallpaper. NuWallpaper is a peel-and-stick wallpaper that goes up in minutes (no paste!) and comes down in seconds without damaging the walls. Cover an accent wall or an entire room without worrying about how it might affect your security deposit.”

We love hearing about how our products are able to make people’s lives easier. We wish her daughter, Abbey, the best of luck on her sophomore year of college!

Dry-Erase Chalkboard and Calendar

“When I first heard about this company the first thing that came to my mind was my daughter who will be entering her second year of college soon [...] Wall Pops are great for college because they stick to your wall, without making a mess.  Many colleges will charge for damage to the paint or the holes left in your wall.  This isn’t fun; especially when you are already paying a pretty penny for tuition, room and board”.
