As summer winds down, we can’t help but start thinking about about cooler weather, pumpkin everything, and of course, current fall decorating trends. With the beautiful new neutrals that have been everywhere this year, it only makes sense that bright pops of color are on the home decor horizon. The colors feel especially fresh as they’re not all the typical fall favorites.

According to Pantone, the authority on all things color, Fall/Winter 2018 is all about bright, bold hues. “The Fall/Winter 2018 palette continues to show designers expressing the need for individuality, ingenuity and creativity though fashion,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices.” 

Leading this fall’s Top 10 list are Red Pear, Valiant Poppy and Nebulas Blue, followed by Ceylon Yellow, Martini Olive, Russet Orange and Ultra Violet. Ranking eighth through tenth are Crocus Petal, Limelight and Quetzal Green. As you can see, most of these shades don’t feel traditionally autumnal. pantone-ftr-img3-copy.jpg

Designers are making big statements with a singular bright hue like never before, though if that’s not your style you can absolutely incorporate these shades into your decor in smaller doses. The real trend here is self expression, so do what makes you feel happy in your space. As always, trends will come and go, the trick is integrating them into your home in a way that fits your personal aesthetic. Here are some of our favorite spaces that incorporate the 2018 fall/winter palette to help inspire you!

Decorating Your House for Fall

Summer is officially over. And you know what that means. Pumpkins, falling leaves, crisper air, the holidays will be here before we know it. And while there are so many things to love about this time of year, one of our favorites is decorating around the house! There are so many ways to “Autumn-ize” your home; here are a few ideas we really love.

Pumpkin Everything

When decorating for fall, you can’t go wrong with pumpkins and gourds. And there’s almost no such thing as too many pumpkins when creating your look. Pumpkin decor has come a long way since someone first carved one and stuck a candle in it hundreds of years ago. Today, pumpkins can be incorporated into really any design aesthetic. There is almost no limit to what you can do with pumpkins, this is just a short sampling with some of our current favorites.

Wrapping white pumpkins with bittersweet is an easy way to make a big statement as a centerpiece or on a mantle. Some people are hesitant to use bittersweet inside, and while they’re not wrong, we think it’s impact far outweighs its potential for messiness.white-pumpkins-386x580Photo: Your Cozy Home
Stacking smaller gourds in glass cylinders of varying heights is another way to modernize your fall decor. You can use gourds of all shapes and colors. Putting a little water in the bottom and placing a short length of live pumpkin vine (pulled out and the root and then cleaned of dirt) really gives this display something extra.BHG155276.jpg.rendition.largestPhoto: Better Homes & Gardens
Glitter is a really fun way to mix up your pumpkin decor. If you like the natural tones or want to go more outrageous with your design, it’s all up to you with this DIY project. It is important to note that the glitter and glue shorten the shelf life of a real pumpkin, so this may be one instance where faux pumpkins are better suited. 4400856_284854_GlitterPump2Photo: Sweet Paul
 Gold paint fancies up any size pumpkin. You can paint the gold directly onto the pumpkin, or paint it another color and and put gold on top of that. Either looks absolutely beautiful.

Fall Foilage

Colorful leaves and fall flowers look beautiful in any home. These elements also add a fun textural element to your fall decor. Rich yellows, oranges, golds reds and browns dominate and are what you want to look for here. Whether you choose to use the real stuff or go for faux, it’s all about bringing the outdoors in.

These simple arrangements pack a huge punch in this kitchen. The tall branches also create a lot of impact with their height, ensuring the countertops underneath aren’t cluttered and still available to be used. The candles and gourds finish the look nicely.

Faux fall leaves are used here to make these amazing wreaths and as the base of the mantle decorations. The pinecones and pumpkins complement the look perfectly. Putting the small twig pumpkins on the shorter candle bases is a lovely touch.

Faux leaves are used here in conjunction with corn and small acorns to create a great windowsill focal point. This is a great example of the different textures you can achieve using multiple fall elements. Even though every cylinder is filled with something unique, they still create a cohesive look.

Indian Corn can be used in a myriad of ways. You can hang it in bunches, or decorate a wreath with it. It also looks beautiful in a vase or incorporated into your mantle or centerpiece.decorating11Photo: Ten Thousand Villages
