Fall 2018 Décor Trends for Your Consideration
Interior design firms and product creators have begun to release their fall look books. While summer design is full of light, bright fabrics and ideas, autumn provides an excellent opportunity to lean into proper design; individuals will be spending more time within their spaces, pointing up the importance of functional but well-designed, beautiful spaces. Whether you work independently or for a large design firm, fall is your time to shine. This year, we’re going to see a lot of velvet, a lot of statement colors, and countless modern lighting options. Read below for our full assessment.
Velvet: Velvet has been a popular choice by interior designers for some time now. Expect this fabric to move from throw pillows and accessory pieces to more functional statement pieces, such as couches and chairs.
Statement Colors: This summer saw a lot of new colors and patterns. This trend will continue into the fall, incorporating bright colors and unexpected patterns. Whether in the form of a media console or a new bedspread, statement colors are sure to add a pop of life into your living space.
Modern LED Lighting: Nearly all interior designers recommend LED and energy-efficient lighting these days. Homeowners and designers can choose from a variety of bulb shapes and designs, but furniture producers are beginning to catch up. Expect to see sleek wood and brass light fixtures.
Graphic Prints: We’ve been putting graphic prints on our walls for years, but they’re finally making the transition to functional fabrics. Large-scale patterned rugs will be the centerpoint of autumn 2018 living rooms—just don’t go overboard with both graphic prints and statement colors. Looking for a low-cost alternative?
