Enchanted Autumn Decor Ideas

Zoe retro chic autumn theme decor idea thanksgiving diy decorAutumn is an enchanted time of year. It is the host to many beloved traditions, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, apple picking, everything pumpkin and so much more. After October 31 we put away the ghosts, witches and spiders to create festive decor schemes with a warmer more inviting feel.

Autumn decor draws on the colors of nature, bringing toasty orange, deep crimson, earthy brown and late blooming yellows inside for an homage to the season. Working with Fall branches and berries, re-purposing pumpkins into Thanksgiving settings, and playing with the warm glow of candles are all beautiful ways to enrapture your home with some autumn spirit. You can also play with leaves, gold glitter, feathers and late harvest beauties like sunflowers, mums, corn stalks and squash to entice a seasonal charm indoors. Decorating your mantle, adding traditional fall colored wall decals and creating pretty tablescapes with these hues and elements will create a welcoming look in your home. Adding pillows and throws in cozy colors instantly adds to the seasonal splendor of a room, too, especially when they play on the accent colors of your Autumn inspired decorations.

Fall 2013 Trends in Home Fashions

Fall Style Trends from Maison et Objet

maisonetobjet

Concurrent with Fashion Week in NYC and London, the Maison et Objet design show in Paris is the mecca of hip for home decor and interior design trends. Here is a full report on colors, prints, materials, and inspirations behind the beautiful designs, products and textiles on display.

The quatrefoil design, meaning four leaves, and its fashionable sister the barbed quatrefoil, were prevalent. This Gothic design is a decorative framework, and lends a cultured Renaissance flair to anything it touches. Watch for it in fabrics, furniture and accessories this year.

Florals are also enjoying a fashionable awakening. Pretty and artistic watercolor florals, mid to large scale blossoms, vintage floral prints and big open flowers were in bloom all over the place. Flowers are fresh, romantic and timeless in decor, it is no wonder they continue to evolve and pop up in different incarnations.

330277 The global-chic tribal trend has gone South. Southwestern designs have shed their salmon cinnamon and earth toned roots and re-emerged as vivid trend-setters in fun palettes. Native American and South American patterns have been energized with pinks, greens and purples for a vivacious twist on the cultured and spiritual design style.

Watch out paint because solid color walls are out and bold graphic wallpaper is back in big time. Patterned walls were predominantly seen implemented as feature walls, with a complimentary color rounding out the rest of the space, but this look was dazzling left and right at Maison this year. Novelty designs, artistic prints and unusual, vivid wallpaper designs have reinvented the traditional looks of yesteryear for unexpectedly high fashion walls that beg to be noticed.

Vintage Floral Print Vivid Wallpaper Feature Wall from Eijffinger

An amalgam of time periods and resources were being mixed with pleasing results, such as natural materials being modernized with sophisticated fittings. Vintage fabrics were everywhere, looking fabulous in contemporary stylings. Reclaimed wood and earthy materials like drift wood, clay and stone worked themselves into au courant designs with fresh colors and modern touches.

Color trends included lots of mid-tone pastels, like dusty pink, taupe, toned down lemon lime, peach, and especially everything aqua, giving a pretty and pleasant look to items. Orange and red were peppering in splashes of warm spice to designs, and opal, mother of pearl, and sequins were bringing an understated luxe. The result was quite lovely and not flashy for very livable looks.
