Autumn Design Trends | MA Interior Design
Today’s drop in temperature really confirmed it – autumn is here! It is the time of year when New England really shows its true colors. Oranges, reds, and yellows come together in perfect harmony. The colors change on the trees and it becomes time for pumpkin spice everything, bonfires, hot apple cider, and sweaters. We, at Lisa Scheff Designs, really love fall decor and a lot of the design trends we are seeing this fall. As we head into Highpoint Market in the coming weeks, we are trying to do our research on what we may see there in trends.
Dark Green & Blush
We mentioned it in a previous blog post, but it is worth mentioning again- dark green is so in right now. Making a comeback from the 80-90s, dark green was all over High Point Market in the spring and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. It is a perfect statement color, when you are looking to make a bold statement, simply. It is dark, it is moody and it gives a feeling of royalty.
Another color we are keeping an eye on is blush. We see it everywhere but are wary. Pink is a color that comes and goes as often and as quickly as the seasons change. We love using this color as an accessory or a pillow because these can be easily replaced next time blush goes by the wayside. We are not entirely sold on painting a wall, cabinets or tiling a bathroom in this color.
Now, we’ve always loved velvet. Velvet is popular right now in both fashion and interiors (wake us up when Juicy Couture suits are back in style). Velvet is a great way to make a bold statement with both color and texture. It can be used in many different ways around a room.You could go big with a velvet couch drenched in luxurious color, or you could go small and incorporate a velvet poof in the center of your room. Velvet drapery is also an interesting way to add subtle excitement to any room. Let’s be honest, velvet is also a great way to instantly add a luxurious vibe to your interior. It looks great and its oh-so-soft. Who wouldn’t love snuggling up with a velvet pillow and their pumpkin spice latte.
Using nailheads on upholstered furniture is nothing new and we do it often at Lisa Scheff. Nailheads are a great way to add an extra design element to your upholstered furniture. Often we will outline the interesting shapes of a chair with a nailhead, but you can take it one step further and add a design to a piece that doesn’t already exist. We have also put nailheads on mirrors, tables, an ottoman, even a desk!
