The captivating shift from lush, vibrant landscapes to the warm glow of sunsets announces a welcome change in seasons in the beautiful Sunshine State. The gentle lull of waves takes the place of the crunching of leaves, and pumpkin spice lattes. Yes, it’s fall in Florida.
As you transition from airy linens to cozy, chic layers and swap your flip-flops for stylish boots, it’s time to give your home a corresponding refresh. Cast aside the lingering vibes of summer and embrace the latest fall decorating trends of 2023, bringing a dash of autumn elegance to your Florida dwelling.
1. Organic Textures
Natural materials are always in style and are especially popular for fall decorating. Think jute, rattan, wood, stone accent walls, and wicker make great fall textures. Incorporate nubby throw blankets in natural fibers or add rattan and wicker baskets filled with blankets, cushions, or autumnal decor.
Mixing natural textures with contrasting smooth or glossy surfaces creates warm and inviting fall vignettes. Moreover, introducing natural textures to your decor adds an element of earthiness and authenticity, bringing the outdoors in.
2. Warm Metallics
Warm metallics like antique bronze, brass, copper, and gold add a touch of glamour and sophistication. Use metallic candle holders, lamps, vases, or trays as statement pieces. Gold picture frames, brass lighting fixtures, and copper mugs also fit well with autumnal color palettes. Warm metallic accents can add a touch of luxury and elegance to your fall decor. They beautifully complement the warm, earthy tones that dominate the season.
3. Plaids And Tartans
Buffalo check and classic tartan plaids make a welcome comeback this fall season. Spotting rich autumn colors, use these patterns abundantly on pillows, wrapping bakeware, shower curtains, throw blankets, table linens, wallpaper, or even upholstered furniture.
Plaids in red, black, orange, and tan are perfect for creating a cozy cabin or lodge vibe at home. Go ahead and mix various sizes of tartan and plaid patterns for visual interest.
4. Warm Lighting
Switch to soft, warm-toned bulbs and fixtures for a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Opt for amber, yellow, or orange-hued lighting.
Add pendant lights with a warm, diffused glow and table lamps with fabric shades for the perfect relaxing evenings. Candles can also be a cost-effective way to cast a cozy glow with a hint of intimacy and comfort at home.
5. Foraged Finds
Incorporate foraged finds like pinecones, acorns, twigs, and dried leaves into your fall decor decorations. Display these natural items in bowls, jars, or vases to create rustic fall displays. Or use them to make mini wreaths and garlands for your mantel or table.
Scattering foraged finds across your dining table or counters adds an organic, seasonal touch. Foraging is also a great boost for your mental well-being.
6. Cozy Throws And Pillows
What fall decor is complete without lots of cozy throws and pillows? Get comfy with oversized knit throws and soft velvet or faux fur pillows. Layer chunky blankets at the end of beds or sofas in rich autumn-inspired hues like garnet, mustard, forest greens, and rust orange. These extras instantly make your living room or bedroom feel warm and inviting.
7. Rich Velvets
Velvet makes a chic statement, adding a touch of luxury and sophistication to any space. Use velvet pillows, poufs, draperies, furniture upholstery, or linens for a glamorous contrast. Or try a deep green or navy velvet sofa or accent chair to indulge in the rich texture.
Go a notch higher and incorporate deep jewel tones like emerald, sapphire, and burgundy that work exceptionally well with velvet. These add depth and luxury to your fall decor.
