We're going beyond the basic burlap and plaid, instead opting for modern accents in our favorite seasonal colors!Fall is such a gorgeous season, and we love decorating our homes to look the part! That said, there are a few fall decor staples that are a bit overdone and outdated. If the sight of burlap and buffalo plaid makes you cringe and you'd like something a bit more creative than a pile of gourds on the coffee table, we have some fall decor tips that will suit your space.
Follow These Design Tips for a Fresh Take on Fall DecorPumpkin-spice up your life with these contemporary styling ideas that will elevate your indoor fall decor!
Add Drama with Deep Forest GreenTrendy and festive, yet bold and contemporary—deep forest green is a magnificent color for mellowing out the bright oranges and golds of the season. It's complementary to the classic autumn color palette but brings contrast and cool sophistication. Pick up some dark green plant pots, a plush throw for the sofa, or coasters and table settings to seamlessly incorporate this on-trend color into your fall decor.
Maximize Golden Hour with Statement MirrorsThe sunlight is dwindling as the seasons change! Make the most of our sunny golden afternoons by hanging a statement mirror across from your living room window. We love mirrors with an antique gold trim for fall—an easy accent to DIY with some metallic paints! To zhuzh it up a little more, pick up some silk fall foliage vines and arrange them around the mirror frame.
Autumnal Pom-Pom GarlandsA pom-pom garland might sound like something that belongs in a 5-year-old's bedroom, but trust us—they are so trendy and stylish! If you avoid bright primary colors and opt for more muted or rich tones, they're the perfect balance of modern and whimsical. There are lots of makers who sell them online, but you can also go the DIY route! Choose an assortment of pom-poms in fall colors like burnt orange, gold, cream, and chocolate brown, and hang your garland on the wall, mantle, or banisters.
