Fall Color Trends for the Home

There are so many ways to transition decor between seasons. Check out my Fall Color Trends for the Home below, along with some fantastic decorating ideas from Hunter Douglas and Décorview.

Fall Color Trends for the Home: easy ways to switch out seasonal decor throughout the year.
Fall is just the best, dontcha think? I got to experience real fall last week on my trip to New York and Connecticut. Down here in Texas, we have to truck in fall by the pallet-load (AKA: our make-shift pumpkin patches). Our leaves just don't quite have the punch of a northern fall. But man...last week, I was in autumnal paradise. Some of the other ladies on my trip giggled at me taking photos of trees and leaves...but, y'all, WOW. Just gorgeous. When decorating for fall, I love to take my cue from nature...and let those beautiful colors just glow amongst the neutral backdrop in my home. Below, I'm sharing some simple ways to incorporate seasonal decor as well as transition between the seasons in your home.

The majority of the walls in our home are pretty neutral. I like to bring in the color and cha-cha-cha in the furnishings and decor. That way, it's simple to transition out from season to season. Above, my entryway table just has a few pumpkins and fall-colored books added to it...along with a brown wicker tray. Red, orange, and brown...just with a few quick accessories. And when Christmas rolls around, I can switch out the pumpkins for ornaments and maybe add another mini banner to the top of the mirror.

Again, the walls are pretty neutral...just to give everything else the spotlight. My shelves in the kitchen are full of fall colors...straight down to the artwork. Even the colors of the cutting board bring in nature.

Again, with my neutral backdrop. Our white fireplace makes the perfect backdrop for seasonal decor. I always like to layer things up there, too. From flowers to pumpkins...it's the outdoors comin' on in!

I wanted to show some beautiful spaces that also embrace the whole neutral background feeling. They allow lots of fun to be added through accessories and other fun things. And y'all, all of the window dressings featured below are Hunter Douglas custom window treatments from Décorview. They are to die for! So elegant and understated...but adding so much fabulousness to each space.

So pretty and understated. Those chachkies could easily be simple metallic gourds or even holiday pieces as well. The neutral setting makes it easy to switch things out seasonally.

Isn't this dining nook so lovely? Those Hunter Douglas custom window treatments from Décorview are so gorgeous. They let nature in when they're up or down. And you can see how easy it would be to add seasonal touches here...perhaps in the bowl of fruit? It could easily be a bowl of acorns, pumpkins or pinecones...they would be a fun way to bring more of nature into this space.

Ahhh...another great neutral eating area. Again, a perfect backdrop to allow for simple seasonal changes. If I were to guess from the food, it looks like a lovely summery day here. But, add some plain twigs to that large floor vase, and perhaps a candle or two here or there and the place can easily take on an autumnal feel. I have very similar chairs (both in color, texture, and shape) in my own dining room. They make it so easy to keep the space light and airy. And the window treatments in this space are fairly understated, but look so amazingly functional. 


Wall to wall windows can be tricky to work with...but look how great these Hunter Douglas custom window treatments from Décorview look in this room. It's another fantastic neutral space that can be dressed up or down to taste for holidays. And I love that beautiful mirror...even with the windows closed, it still bounces the light around the room. Window treatments help make a bold statement about your tastes, or, they can be a subtle reinforcement of your existing décor...like seen above.

While the above space is still neutral, look how much oomph those beautiful window treatments add to the area. I'm a red-person, so I was instantly drawn to the warmth here. And the neutrality of the rest of the space makes it easy to bring in seasonal touches here and there.

Sometimes tackling a space can seem overwhelming. After all, living in the space day in and day out requires you to be happy with what all is going on there. Schedule your free design consultation from Décorview and save on your window projects before December 16th.
