by Karen LeBlanc

As the weather gets cooler and the leaves turn colors, home interiors cozy up for the colder months. Here’s a look at 5 Fall Trend Takeways for the Home

Metals Warm Up:

Expect to see warmer metals such as copper, brass and rose gold mixing in with stainless steel and colder metallic finishes for an updated look in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room.

Classic gray and white color palettes remain popular and are accented with warmer metals and mixed metal finishes. In this laundry room, notice the stainless steel faucet paired with brushed brass cabinet hardware.

Expect to see the continued popularity of mixing mattes and metals in kitchens which is why Matte Black is having a moment. Notice the matte black cabinet hardware paired with white cabinets and stainless steel appliances and range hood. Many kitchen and bath products now offer a matte black version of their product line including the latest from True Residential.

 

 True Residential recently launched a new Ultra Matte Black finish with a textured surface and hardware options of gold, pewter, copper, brass, and chrome hardware.   The new hue joins a wide array of available custom finishes in the Build Your True collection which includes Stainless Steel, Emerald, Cobalt, Gloss Black, Matte White, and Antique White.

Subway Tile Makes a Comeback:

Subway tile is making a comeback in kitchen backsplashes and bathroom wall and shower cladding. This latest interpretation of the subway tile is textural with a rough-hewn effect in larger formats.

NewHomeSource recently asked a panel of experts including yours truly for our trend insights on stylish living spaces. You can check out my interview in its Fall Interior Design Expert Roundup as well as input from other respected designers and decorators.  

Sensory Rich Rooms:

A reverence for the artisanal and a desire for soothing spaces drives one of the biggest trends in home decor: the sensory-rich room. This tactile trend emphasizes nature-inspired textures, organic and irregular surfaces and authenticity. The look is grounded in humanity drawing focus to craft-inspired materials such as handwoven objects in natural fibers or handmade pottery and surfaces of raw wood. Think of this as the latest interpretation of hygge, layered with sumptuous materials and touch-me surfaces and an earth-friendly ethos of sustainable choices.
