Happy weekend, friends! Although summer is still with us, fall and cooler temperatures will be here before we know it! If you’re in the mood to shop for fall 2019, this is a great chance to snap up some on-trend items that will help you easily transition your home from summer to fall.  To help you get started, I’m sharing an overview of the fall home decor trends for 2019, along with a few of my favorite affordable and chic fall decor finds and autumn decorating ideas. 

When should you start decorating for fall?

Any time that feels right for you! I like to start scouting out the fall decorating trends in late August or early September, but I don’t usually get excited about fall decorating until the weather cools down a bit–or until the official arrival of fall–whichever comes first!

When you’re ready, you’ll find that adding a touch of fall style to your home is super easy. Simply layer in some accessories, experiment with richer colors, and weave in a variety of textures to transition your home from summer to fall.

What are the fall decorating trends for 2019? 

Whereas summer home decor focused on a more organic feeling, fall home decor trends for 2019 are all about interesting shapes and luxurious textures.  With just a few simple changes, you can update your home with warm and welcoming fall style. Here are the home decor trends to be looking for as you shop for fall decor:

1. Velvet.

Velvet is a big player in this year’s fall interior design forecast, and I couldn’t be happier!  Weightier fabrics make your home feel cozier — and classic velvet is my favorite way to get the effect. 



Even better–the biggest fall color trends–eggplant, dusty green, umber, ochre, sky blue, and terracotta–all pair beautifully with the indigo and navy blue I have in abundance! A simple velvet pillow cover or two, like these from H&M Home, is enough to give your living room or bedroom a touch of chic fall decor in an instant. 


2. Wood.

The beauty of wood creates such a welcoming and calming environment for fall. And with the growing desire for lighter airier spaces, wood adds a much-needed grounding effect.

3.  Light woven elements.

Woven textures in all their forms add softness to any space and are having a moment in fall decor 2019. Think baskets of all shapes and sizes, interesting textiles (like this pouf), woven pendant lights, natural rugs, and cane and rattan furniture. 


4.  Sculptural lamps & light fixtures.

The popularity of sculptural lamps is a sign of things to come, as Italian-influenced modern design is making a comeback.  But if you’re not quite ready to jump on the bandwagon with this trend, incorporating sconces into a gallery wall, adding a unique floor lamp to your reading corner, or topping your kitchen countertops with a small lamp are other ways to add ambience and revitalize your spaces for fall.

A super easy way to bring sculptural lighting into your home for fall is with Noguchi-style paper lanterns. These beauties mimic the iconic look of the Herman Miller bubble lamp for a fraction of the cost.  Even if you just hang them from the ceiling, without attaching them to a light source, the airy look is enough to give your spaces a clean, updated vibe! 


5. Plinth Style Coffee Tables

Another new fall decor trend you can expect to see everywhere is the plinth style table–especially coffee tables.  Historically used as a base to support a statue or vase, today’s plinth is generally seen as a low rectangular or square coffee table, often in marble or concrete, either as one big chunk or set atop a pedestal. It’s a modern and beautiful way to display your favorite coffee table books, sculptural objects and travel mementos.

Remember, incorporating this year’s fall decorating ideas doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. In fact, adding just one or two new elements can give your home an entirely new look–whether it’s the latest lamp trend or one or two luxurious velvet pillows.  Swipe through below to see a few of my top fall 2019 home decor finds:
