The best fall 2021 home decor trends
By Amy Wright | Sep 16, 2021
Even though fall is the season that winds up the calendar year, there’s something about this time of year that always feels like a fresh start. Maybe it’s the refreshing chill in the air or the back-to-school vibes or the gorgeous colors of the changing leaves that make us feel like the world is new again.
Whatever it is, every fall, we feel the urge to do some overhauling and updating to meet this new world with a fresh perspective. That includes refreshing our home decor to take advantage of the latest fall decor inspiration and the best of the seasonal fall wall art trends.
So what’s on our radar as we head into fall 2021? A focus on comfort, convenience, and (surprise, surprise), color.
Earthy colors that make you feel warm and cozy all over
Spring flowers and summer sunsets are beautiful, but does any season truly compare to the brilliance of fall? The vibrant foliage and bright blue skies are so stunning that we naturally want to pull these colors into our spaces with fall home decor in cozy browns, creamy beiges, sage greens, and pumpkin-spice-inspired oranges.
Throw pillows and blankets are an easy way to inject a rich, warm fall palette into your existing decor. So are table runners, area rugs, and tabletop accent pieces. But our favorite style trick to amplify earthy neutrals in your home is to add a wood float frame to an eye-catching print. Framed canvas prints add instant elegance to any photo print or piece of art, the earthy balance that the frame lends to the print adds a touch of rich warmth to any room.
Scents that capture the season
Don’t forget that your home environment includes more than just visuals. It’s about the total experience, including the way your home smells.
Create an instant ambiance with scented candles in creative seasonal formulations that feature notes of cedar, pine, smoke, cinnamon, and coffee. Or diffuse some essential oils that not only add an inviting scent to your home but also have aromatherapeutic benefits. Clove, patchouli, lavender, orange, and juniper are classic fall scents that also have a calming, soothing, and cleansing effect.
Because we all love to get cozy in fall, textures tend to become a major focus in fall home decor trends. Fuzzy blankets in wool and flannel, as well as furniture and furnishings accented with country-chic wood finishes, start popping up all over the place.
We like to take these textures as inspiration for our framed wall art pieces, and vice versa. Abstract art prints are particularly fitting since they often incorporate vivid textures that seem to leap off the canvas and beg to be experienced in a tactile way.
All things vintage and antique
There’s a wisdom and contemplativeness about fall that makes the past seem somehow more immediate. An amazing way to channel this energy is with vintage and antique pieces that connect us to the past and shed light on the present. There’s never been a better time to dust off those family heirlooms, such as candlesticks, vases, and photos, and give them a place of honor in your home.
If you don’t have items that have been passed down through the generations, you can still add antique flair to your home with wall art that has a vintage vibe, like this stunning linework sketch of a 19th-century French church or a charming vintage-style print of an Italian street scene.
