When the summer temperatures start winding down to fall, don’t expect fall design trends for your home to cool down at all. Despite the economic times looking cold, upcoming fall design trends are looking warm! Creating a festive autumn décor is your home is a cinche…whether you run to the store to decorate or you try some easy DYI projects, your house will be ready for fall.  Try these ideas to get your house looking wonderfully festive.

High Glamour:  There is no reason for your home to look like its feeling an economic pinch or to look to hokey with fall decorations! Using rich materials, classy colors and striking curves and shape, whether it’s in furniture or décor, your house will be looking luxurious.

Warm tones: Bring in some familiar warm tones, like reds and oranges, to help make your space resonate with the season and feel cozy. Bring in some bronze and copper hues; it is a unique way to bring in the fall colors with an elegant twist. If you don’t want such a bold statement, accessorize a neutral color palette with pillows and blankets and décor in fall colors. Don’t forget that fall is wine season, so deep purple and greens are also great colors to mix in to your decorations.

Outdoors Matter Too: Make the entrance to your house festive for the season and welcoming with some autumn inspired decorations (think scarecrows and pumpkins). Plant mums and even sunflowers to bring color to your porch. Adding different size and color pumpkins and gourds is also a creative way to add color and interest to your front porch.

Indoor Décor: The pumpkins and plants aren’t only for your doorway, bring them inside too. Use mini pumpkins and gourds and plants to create center pieces for your dining or coffee table. Using these natural materials will add textures and unexpected interest on your tabletops.

Easy DYI Décor: Just as you update your wardrobe, you can update your home as well.  A scarf can be used as a pretty and easy table top runner.  Or make a festive autumn branch tree for a center piece or side table decoration (see easy DYI decorations here : http://www.marthastewart.com/267415/autumn-branch-centerpiece).
