Autumn decorating trends and ideas for your home

Autumn is most certainly upon us and, if you have not yet decorated your home, now is the time to do so. Even if you have started your annual autumn decorating, you might be looking for some added inspiration. Here are some tips to help you make the most of the beauty nature has to offer during this time of year.

Living displays

Over the years, there has been an increasing demand for sustainable natural displays and this extends to autumn decorating too. Instead of placing cut stems in every room, you could change it up a bit with something that will last so much longer. Living walls, for example, improve the air quality in the room and they add colour. They are easy to grow and maintain without frequent attention.

Going big

While the minimalist autumn decorating trend has remained popular, there is a somewhat parallel trend that takes interior design to the other extreme. Maximalism involves larger, more detailed and extravagant displays with plenty of rich colours. Since the weather is not all that pleasant outside, you can warm up your home by choosing plenty of bright orange and red blooms.

Organic décor themes

This season, it’s all about keeping things as natural as possible. In other words, you want to opt for decorative items made from brass, stone, wood and so on. A brass vase or pedestal stand for your autumn flowers, for example, will certainly stand out in any room.

Oldest trends

Apart from trends that come and go, there are some autumn decorating trends that have remained for years. One example is the use of alternative decorating items. Do no limit yourself to flowers and foliage this season. Nature has so much more to offer in the form of sticks, berries and even pumpkins.

These autumn decorating ideas as easy to implement in your home and many of them can be adapted to suit any season. With just a few minor tweaks here and there, you can transform an autumn display into a Halloween decoration and later make adjustments for Christmas.
