Top Interior Design Trends for Fall 2013

By

I hope everyone had a fun and safe Labor Day weekend. I enjoyed my time on Lake Gaston having fun with friends and family. Despite the advantage of an extra long weekend of fun, Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. I enjoy the summer months but fall is definitely my favorite season. With that said, I was curious as to what are some interior design trends for fall.  I have to say, I’m loving what I’m seeing.

 

Emerald Green.

Green certainly isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It’s everywhere! I read in Harper’s Bazaar that they are calling it a “Green Movement.” This fall, I suggest going with a deeper green, it will make an even bolder statement.

Brass, Gold and Metallic Leather?

I have never really been a fan of gold, but the more I see it, the more I’m starting to give it a try. I really like the elegance it brings to a room. I especially would use this brushed gold book shelf.  Brass and Gold are on everything! Lamps, chandeliers, faucets, and of course nail head trim.  I like the brass railing on the staircase below.  gold rush - brass bookshelves_habitually chic_phoebe howard

…………and yes I did say, METALLIC LEATHER! I’m not really sure if I’ll follow this trend.  It seems more like a fad than a trend.

High Contrast

Black and White are daring together. These two are bold, drastic, and adds the drama! I like these two together and adding a pop of another color.  If you do use a pop of color, remember to be sparingly, rule of thumb is “three is all you need.”

Feathers.

I wasn’t expecting to see this one, but they are in fact feathers! Feathers are showing up in a vast amount of home accessories.  I like the less literal interpretation, like this wall paper.Screen-Shot-2013-05-15-at-11_51_31-AM

Gray.

Move over beige, Gray is the new neutral. This crisp, clean, modern look is to die for, and not to mention it can be paired with almost any color!  This could be my favorite look for fall.

Last but not least.

Pantone has selected these paint colors to be the trend this Fall. Emerald Green was chosen in January as the color of the year. I’m more attached to the bright orange named, Koi. That color would be great as an accent wall or maybe as a couch?

Okay Trend Setter, which color or colors will you be using this fall?
