“The geometric pattern is always trendy as you can use it in either a modern or a classic way. It’s classic because it originates from ancient roman marble floors, so it’s perfect for any home surrounded by antiques and velvet curtains. It can be also very 20th century — because it reminds us the Art Deco 1920s skyscraper interiors, full of geometric marbles and brass sufaces. But it’s also modern if you leave it alone, as unique decoration, without any atrezzo around, maybe just with painted white walls and clean white stone floors —that’s it. It’s young, it’s fresh, it’s sophisticated, but always depending on the soul you want to add to your space.” — Lorenzo CastilloCourtesy of Lorenzo Castillo
“We added some visual texture to the original charm of this 1880 Catskills farmhouse with a black and cream rug. The classic pattern, a bold counterpoint to the natural rustic wood, adds a modern, graphic element while creating separate areas behind the dining, entrance and living spaces.” — Stefania Skrabak, Art Home GardenNick Glimenakis
Give heirlooms and heritage pieces a new quirky role in your home. Use faux antlers as both ornaments and unusual hooks on which to hang your family’s hats. Decorate with warm, tonal colours, think heather-coloured walls and dark slate flooring that takes its cue from an autumnal palette to create a cosy, cocoon-like aura. Line up wellington boots – an autumn essential – along an authentic iron rack.

Add an atmospheric glow at suppertime with candle flames reflected in an oversized mirror. Close the door on those first frosts and settle down for a hearty meal surrounded by freshly gathered leaves in an autumnal palette of oranges and red hues. Display simple white candles in carved wooden holders and position in front of a mirror to multiply the shimmering effect and boosting light levels.
Bring indoors the rich autumn colour palette of turning-leaf tones, fiery reds and comforting ceruleans, and mix weathered woodland treasures for rooms filled with true autumn attitude. Create a warming glow with cosy layers of tweed, plaid and woollen weaves in natural bracken, bark and teasel shades.
Snuggle down in a log-cabin-style bedroom. Make wood the material of choice for walls. Be sure to maintain its glorious facade with oil or wax. Bring to the fore woven and patterned cushions, throws and linens – a smart way to add autumn notes to neutral upholstery – while wooden accessories bring a balanced, organic feel to the room. Include leafy printed fabric and prints to reflect woodland foliage shapes and patterns.

“Curved sofas solve many ‘age old design dilemmas.’ First, you never have to look at the flat ugly back of a sofa again. Second, conversation in the area is now oriented where everyone seated on the sofa can see each other instead of the side of each other’s heads! Third, the organic curve adds harmony and order to the room instead of just a flat-lined sofa. The Victorian era was the best illustration of curved sofas. During that time women couldn’t move easily in their dresses, so curved sofas added comfort to the living room conversations. We chose a curved sofa for this room since it is a room of social gathering with bar cabinets flanking each side of a wood-burning fireplace. The design of the room draws you into it… and makes you never want to leave!” — Emily Mackie, Inspired InteriorsCourtsey of Inspired Interiors
Introduce nature-inspired designs with oversized blooms to create a snug haven in modern country-house style. Mix rich claret and crimson shades and match them with the warmth of worn leather. Big and blowsy roses and other flourishing blooms exquisitely depicted on tea-stain linens are high on the autumnal list this season. In glorious reds and subtle lilac with touches of creamy yellow, these fabrics add an air of legacy and lived-in grandeur to a living room scheme.
Soft yellow will also be making its way into homes as it combats the normal rich tones of fall by adding a splash of upbeat fun to your space. Following on the brighter color train is bold cobalt blue, a summer color that we’ll see sticking around, thanks to the elegant and royal feeling it embodies.
Be inspired by nature’s cue to wind down by giving you home an update with the new autumn colours
Add colour and character to your kitchen. Collect and use pots and crocks in warm tones of red, copper and terracotta, with woolly accessories on a rocking chair for texture. Make use of stylish freestanding furniture, such as chairs and side tables that wouldn’t look out of place in any room in the house. They can easily be replaced once the season changes.
Choose oak and pine furniture to inject honesty and depth into a room. Old school desks add a vintage touch to a study and are perfect for a compact space. Choose accessories that replicate forager finds to add character to the autumn scene. Bring to the fore woven and patterned cushions and linens – a smart way to add neutral upholstery – while freshly picked foliage adds a pop of colour.
“As we settle into fall in Chicago, we’re thinking of enveloping spaces. Deep jewel-toned color blocking unifies this bedroom vignette and gives a sense of warmth and comfort. The nearly monochromatic inky blue envelope is the perfect backdrop to highlight the bordeaux velvet coverlet, the richly hued art, the gilded mirror and the macassar cabinets.” —Tom Konopiots & Michael Stornello, Vincere, Ltd.Scott Shigley
How to use Nature’s Autumn Colors for your Personal Interior Style
“Our take on a sophisticated TV hangout area for the younger members of the family. We wanted to reference the rich aesthetics of a London private club, with a strong dose of still prevalent fashion for all things midcentury. Visual interest comes from an extensive layering of patterns, accent colors and cultural references, in a mix of art and accessories, that feed into the current trend of maximalism.” —Hubert Zandberg InteriorsSimon Upton
“In the absence of color, it is always important to add plentiful texture and movement, even if you use various neutral tones throughout the space. This client, in particular, has a large living and dining space that we filled with layer upon layer of organic and patterned elements. From the pillows on the sofa, to the wall decor, to the details of the accent furniture, we are touching on ingredients that have always been our signature: natural textures, fluid shapes, and calm, clean colors.” —Lisa Sherry InterieursMichael Blevins
“Layered spaces, complete with a heavy dose of textiles and vintage or one-of-a-kind pieces are our calling card. And frankly, there’s no better way to achieve a Global Nomad-inspired sensibility in your own spaces! Start by looking around at what you already have, then hit local antique shops and estate sales to add interesting art and accessories to make your space sing.” —CLOTH & KINDRustic White Photography

“Often, people find it comforting to be surrounded by neutrals. Layering in texture, colors found in nature, simple shapes and metal finishes can elevate a standard neutral palette to create a more modern, neutral space.” — Tiffany Leblanc of LeBlanc Design, LLCCourtesy of LeBlanc Design, LLC

Give a warm welcome to your guests upon arrival with a console table all set for autumn. Create a hall with wow factor by arranging autumnal foliage and animal-inspired trinkets on a console table. Bring the outdoors in with a bouquet of fiery red and burnt orange leaves set in a glass decanter for an easy, cost-effective display. Try a rougher, rustic version of the cosy Highland look using easy checks, tartans and plaids in softer colours.
Every season has its signature colors, and depending on which season blends more with your personality, it probably is telling of what lends cues to the colors of your interior home. Autumn’s color palette of nature inspired amenities are a favorite for many. Whether the color of the turning leaves takes you back to your childhood, or the deep browns and rust colors bring warm thoughts of a buth ring fireplace, autumn is a cherished time of year. As the weather brings a chill to the air, your interiors can warm up with colors to delight. Here are easy ways to bring nature’s autumnal color palette into your home.
“The owner of this 1906 Victorian wanted to highlight as much of the home’s original charm as possible. One of the ways we achieved this was by incorporating classic, timeless materials such as this Carrara marble coffee table by Holly Hunt. The marble surface was a perfect complement to the original fireplace, replete with original tile in soft pink and green tones — some of the client’s favorite colors. Marble also provides a refreshing visual balance to the warm wood tones in the custom bookshelves, the honeyed leather in the ottomans and the rich olive green velvet on the custom sofa.” — Jaclyn Christensen, IDF StudioChristopher Stark
“Black is classic and sophisticated, and allows for high-contrast, sculptural moments.” — Michelle Dirkse, Michelle Dirkse Interior DesignHaris Kenjar
“This client loves the outdoors and really wanted a comfortable living space that felt equally organic and refined. The walls are horse hair woven in shades of camel, olive green and tan surrounding a vintage inspired chair in a golden tan silk velvet and olive leather welt. The palette is completely derived from nature, bringing the outside in giving a presence to eclectic objects and artwork in the space.” — Ashli MizellCourtesy of Ashli Mizell

As the weather changes and we find ourselves entering fall, design projects, renovations and redecorations gear up for this stylish season.

Follow nature’s lead and focus on organic shapes that act as the building blocks of a rustic scheme. Think slouchy linens, crushed leather and rugged edges; all informal, repetitive designs perfect for a relaxed rural setting. Incorporate charming accessories, such as antique frames, industrial lamps and enamelware to create heaps of vintage charm.

Plan a cheerful guest room with toiles, paisley and plaids in complementary russet and berry shades. One of the biggest trends for this season is refined rustic Highland – think tartans and checks in warming reds with hints of taupe and grey. This autumn it’s all about layering so whether it’s cosy comfort or classic drama you’re after, invest in checks, animal motifs and blooms of all shapes and sizes. Use tongue-and-groove panelling on the walls. Ready-made timber or MDF panels can be glued on to a flat wall. Aim for one-third or two-thirds the room height.
Whether your personal decorative style is eclectic, modern, traditional or rustic, nature has a color palette waiting for you. If you’re having a hard time trying to decide which one to choose, how about take your favorite parts of each style and create your own? If you’re not up to changing your entire room, find your favorite vase or display container and collect some leaves, pinecones, or even some ripe red apples. You will love how simple bringing the season into your home can be!
Burnt orange and dark red are also two very prominent colors that we’ll see this autumn. Dark orange is a great color to pair with other nature-inspired neutrals, while red is great if you’re looking to make a bold statement in your home.
Greens are going to be a popular color in homes this autumn, as homeowners will look to bring the beautiful colors of nature into their décor. Shades such as olive, sage, and forest will be favorites.
With every fall and winter, we typically see an increase in warm colors in our homes. The season’s colors always put us in the mood for all things fall; foliage, pumpkins, fires, and cozy nights, but this year we’ll see a few fun colors grab our attention as well.

Since some of these trending colors might be too bold for your walls, they all work great when used as accent colors. Pillows and blankets are easy pieces that can be swapped out with each changing season. Bring one of these colors into your space with a velvet accent chair, but don’t forget that window treatments, rugs, linens, and dishware are all great sources for these hot autumn colors.
