Each year, we tend to see a parallel between fashion trends and home decor trends. This year is no different. Much of what is popular this fall in the home stems from what hit the runway this season. Let’s take a look at some of the hot pattern picks for fall.
Florals have been trendy for several years now but this year they seem to be a bit more inspired by botanical history books. Large, eye-popping florals are even bigger and brighter than before, especially in cotton prints and wallpaper.
Plant-based motifs, such as ferns, are also making a big comeback. Visit your local department store and you’ll see bedding, throw pillows, and so much more covered in them.
If you’re fond of geometrics, opt for patterns like houndstooth or quatrefoil this year. While black-and-white houndstooth is traditional, a bolder color will turn this menswear classic into something fun and fresh. Quatrefoil is a pattern that is quite plentiful in fabrics, wallpaper, home accents and much more. Keep it simple with bedding or pillows or go bold by creating an accent wall with it.
Checks & Plaid
Checks and plaids are classics that are often associated with the fall and winter seasons. These patterns can be a variety of things: serious, laid back, and even playful. Today, you can find checks and plaid in a wide array of sizes and colors, making it easier than ever to use them in your home. Whether you are uber preppy, prefer farmhouse flair, or something in between, these two patterns have got you covered.
It may seem as though bravery is a prerequisite for using animal prints, but it’s really not. Animal prints can be so much fun! If you aren’t sure what print you prefer, or where to put them, start small. Test the waters with some decorative pillows or a comfy throw to ward off cool nights. Like it? Take it a step further and consider an area rug, window treatments, or an upholstered chair (like in the picture above). The key, however, is to stick with one print at a time. You want to make a statement, not cause confusion.
We offer several fabrics that fall into each of these trend categories, so be sure to stop by or browse our selection online.
