Make sure to incorporate these trends sure to make your house cozy this fall!
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
As we transition out of the “staycation” vibes that come with summer house decor, we begin to move into the cooler, more luxurious style trends for autumn. While it’s nice to celebrate the warm weather and easy feel of the summer season with lighter fabrics and colors-- and include beachy or nautical themes as well-- it’s also fun to change it up when school starts and the leaves start to change. As we start to prepare our homes for the coming winter season-- and cold weather-- the house decor trends tend to shift to darker colors and heavier fabrics.
Autumn is also a great time to go through your home decor and decide what is-- and what isn’t-- working for your space anymore. Consider having a garage sale or giving some items away that don’t seem to compliment your decor. There’s no need to completely revamp your home for the changing season either-- just picking up some autumnal elements should do the trick just fine, and give your home an instant feeling of coziness that comes with the season.
Indoor Autumn Decor Trends
When considering some autumn additions to your home, it is first wise to consider what your budget will work with. There’s no need to break the bank each time the seasons change, but sometimes just adding one or two of the following elements is enough to give your home a fresh feeling. Sometimes if you do a little digging, you can even find nearly exact replicas of more expensive pieces at antique stores or even on Amazon, so do a little research before splurging on that gorgeous statement piece! Below are just some of the most popular autumn decor trends for 2019, but this list is by no means exhaustive!
Wood and organic furniture create a homey feeling
If you’re interested in adding a little more warmth and all around sense of “home” to your space, consider changing up some of your furniture. By adding a wood set of table and chairs to your breakfast area or dining room, you are creating an organic setting that is reminiscent of a welcoming country farmhouse. Wood furniture is a way to incorporate nature into your overall decor as well, and that seems to always be a popular trend.
Don’t feel like you have to change your whole set though-- perhaps pick up a wooden side table instead to add to your living room or dining room-- or even an upholstered chair or couch with prominent wooden legs. These types of pieces also give off a warm, autumn vibe that encourages gatherings and conversations. Check out your local antique or thrift stores for some gorgeous one of a kind pieces that will add a little extra to your autumn decor.
Incorporate hygge to amplify coziness
If you could sum up autumn decor in one word, it would most likely be hygge. The Danish word conveys a cozy, special feeling-- either experienced at home or outdoors. This seems to get right at the heart of autumn trends, and welcomes us to enjoy our home, and those we might share it with. The concept of hygge could mean creating a space in your home that makes you, and others, feel comfortable and relaxed.
It’s easy to get caught up in a stressful day, so when you return home, make it your space away from everyday annoyances and deadlines. Add blankets to your couches, and make sure there are comfortable pillows available for lounging. It also helps to have some candles on hand to create a truly cozy mood, especially as the temperatures start to cool. There is no right or wrong way to do hygge, it simply encourages you treat your moments at home as special. So why not make some tea and snuggle up on the couch with a good book. You can’t get much more hygge than that!
Interesting mirrors add space to your indoors
Another hot autumn decor trend that never really leaves is mirrors-- in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Whether you have the space to add a large statement piece to your wall, or simply want to add some texture and glow with smaller mirrors, you really can’t go wrong with this trend. Mirrors, especially large and intricate ones, can be on the expensive side, so if you’re unsure of whether you want to incorporate this into your fall decor, perhaps start smaller. Pick up a mirror at a thrift store or garage sale and if it doesn’t fit exactly with your taste, it will make a great DIY project!
Amazon and Etsy also have a great selection of mirrors that are sure to spark your fancy. An easy way to incorporate more mirrors into your space is by putting many smaller mirrors together on the same wall. Make sure there is an element that ties them all together-- such as a shape, color, or size though. Not only is this a great way to make your space seem larger, it’s also an interesting conversation piece.
Vintage and throwback items are always great additions
Everyone loves a throwback item, whether it’s art deco, mid-century, or an interesting item from the 1980s, vintage pieces rarely go out of style or off trend. There are lots of opportunities to find a gem too, from garage sales, estate sales, antique malls, and even Ebay or Etsy-- these are all great places to find that perfect throwback item you didn’t know you were missing.
The appeal of vintage items in your decor stems from the fact that typically they are a one of a kind addition to your space. Maybe it’s a porcelain lamp, a glass decanter, or a set of brass candlesticks-- chances are you don’t have more than one of these items. They also go well with many types of spaces, whether your prefer minimalist decor or are going for the French cottage look, there’s room for a vintage piece to add to your collection for fall. It need not be autumn themed either-- as long as contributes to the happiness and coziness of your house.
Outdoor Autumn Decor Trends
While adding some pieces to your indoors is a great way to welcome autumn, don’t forget about your outside autumn decor as well! Having a porch, deck, or patio is another way for us to connect with nature and to incorporate it into your decor. These are a couple of ways to add those elements of hygge and coziness to your outside spaces that are a breeze to put together. Try some of these ideas out this autumn before the cold weather hits and you need to close up your outdoor space for winter!
Pops of color in your outdoor furniture
Whether you have a porch swing, a couple of chairs, or an entire living space outside, there is always room to add some of the colors of fall to your outdoor decor. One of the easiest ways is to add some cushions or furniture covers in orange, deep red, dark purple, or mute yellow. It’s amazing how just adding a couple of pillows in a fall color, and in a cozy fabric such as velvet or velveteen, really add an autumn vibe to your outdoor space.
Because this is your outdoor space, feel free to also incorporate autumn vegetables such as pumpkins, squash, and corn into your space as well. The colors of these items will fit in perfectly with your space, and bring the feeling of fall a little closer to home.
Flowers in the colors of fall
Once September hits, it’s time to switch modes in your garden. The bright, heat loving flowers and plants of the summer will be gone soon, so now is the time to add a little fall to your pots and containers. Mums are the go-to favorite of most people, and for good reason-- they come in a variety of gorgeous fall colors and can withstand the first touches of frost. But don’t just stop at mums! Consider adding some texture as well and include celosia or croton, both of which also come in wonderful autumn shades.
Flowers can be nicely contrasted with corn stalks as well, which are always a great addition to your outdoor autumn decor. One of the best parts of using flowers and other natural items to your outdoor space is that they seem to be just an extension of all the natural autumn beauty that’s taking place around you.
DIY wreaths add a welcoming vibe
One of the easiest ways to bring that welcoming vibe to your outdoor space is to put together an autumn wreath to hang on your front door. It’s easy to visit your local craft store and pick up some wonderfully autumnal items in all your favorite fall colors. You can also choose to go a different route and create a wreath that’s still very on trend, but celebrates the darker colors of fall. Incorporate dark berries, purple grasses, and even feathers into your wreath instead. This way, your wreath will not only welcome the autumn, it can celebrate Halloween as well!
Lanterns to light the way
As the days grow shorter, we start to incorporate more light inside and outside of our homes. Candles are a must-have, but for your outdoor space, consider putting them into a season-appropriate lantern. Lanterns come in all sizes and colors, and look right at home on your outdoor dining table or even to frame your door. They also mix in nicely with flowers, pumpkins, and hay barrels for an authentic country-style autumn look.
If you’d rather not have candles outdoors, not to worry, there are plenty of places that sell candles that are battery operated. This way you still get the cozy lighted lantern look, without having to worry about wax or forgetting to blow them out. Whether using wax or battery operated candles, lanterns seem to bring a vintage, welcoming feeling to your outdoor space and will definitely contribute to your beautiful autumn decor.
Autumn is always a welcome change after the heat of summer. It’s a time when we start to harvest the items from our gardens, and think about creating an atmosphere of warmth and coziness in our homes. Consider adding some of these indoor and outdoor autumn decor trends to your space and see how much more welcoming your home feels!
