3 Fall Decor Trends We're Loving for 2016

Abigail Sawyer | 08 Sep 2016 | Seasonal Trends

Want to break away from just pumpkins and cornucopias for this year's fall décor? Give these 3 modern, unique autumn décor trends a try!

1. Modern + Metallics

Tone down traditional harvest jewel tones in favor of a more minimalist look. Blend contemporary styles with bronze, copper and silver for a warm fall look.

2. Fall Brights

If you're not one for the moody crimsons and burnt oranges of fall, give your home a more cheerful palette with bright pumpkins and splashes of teal and mustard.

Use autumn flowers like mums and sunflowers in bright hues to bring in color that's season appropriate.

Take This Look to Your Windows

With a bright palette, let your accessories be the star and keep your window coverings neutral with a classic choice like the <a href="https://www.blinds.com/p/blindscom-simplicity-wood-shutter/521178">Blinds.com Simplicity Wood Shutters</a>.

3. Natural Romantic

Soft, dusty hues and natural elements will give your home an old-world feel for fall.

Lots of white (including white pumpkins!) plus greenery and wood tones for contrast is the key to this look. We especially love the soft dusty miller that's a part of many of these arrangements.
