With the autumn season fast-approaching, it’s time to start trading out bright and bold summer decor and experimenting with the textures, patterns and color palettes of fall. If you’re looking to adorn your home in a new ambiance of style, here are some of the top interior design trends that will inspire you for the upcoming season.

Matte Black → In contrast to the bold metallics that have become a mainstay in homes as of recent, matte black is gaining popularity in interior design for many reasons: it’s sleek, sexy and sophisticated. Trade out your shiny knobs and trinkets for a few matte black finishes. Mixing matte blacks with bold colors is also another trend to try.

Spruce up your living room with new pillows, add new window treatments to in your bedroom, or even try your hand at a daring kitchen accent wall. Finding small ways to incorporate patterns into your decor can make a big statement.

Vintage Finds → In this day in age, old is new again, so there’s no better way to refresh the look in your home than by stopping by a local flea market or yard sale to find some interesting vintage pieces. Add a custom touch to your newfound furniture or accessories by repurposing them to fit your style.

Browns, grays, and creams are a major trend for the season, and mixing shapes, textures, and tones can help to bring dimension and contrast to more muted hues.

Metallics →There’s something about metallic that adds an elegant touch to any space, but what makes it so unique is that it can be mixed and matched with practically any combination of design elements. If you’re not a fan of the shine and luster that metallic generally brings, you can tone things down with a more rustic or matte finish. Don’t limit yourself to just gold and bronze, which have been fairly popular as of recent. Rose gold and silver are popular choices as well.
