A new season means new decor trends to admire. You don't have to break the bank to stay stylish. Little changes to your existing decor will go a long way. Adding decorative throw blankets and pillows might be the simplest way to change the look and feel of your space on a budget. With the less is more mantra in mind, the Bentall Kennedy Residential Services team has some hot decor trends for fall 2018 for you to try at home.
One of the trends being seen on the catwalks for the fall season is oversized everything. Runway trends often influence interior decor patterns, fabrics and colour palettes. Think big and comfy. That can mean a major purchase like a deep, overstuffed sofa, or something more simple like a velvet slipcover in a dark, rich colour. Some instant options that can create dramatic changes to your interior look include big chunky knit throws and oversized pillows.
It's all about how it feels. The fashion industry is busy rolling out dramatic textures for fall. This includes all things shiny. It's easy to put a shine on your interior decor with a few sequined but stylish throw pillows or pillow covers.
Embrace the Dark
You'll want to balance out the shiny textures with some subdued, rich colours. The Pantone colour of the year is Ultra Violet. This means that rich purples, plums and burgundy tones will be accentuating interiors this year. Again, it's about finding the right balance. To contrast violet, look for rich emerald greens or mustard tones for accessories and bedding.
Classic Tailored Elegance
Classic tailored elegance never seems to go out of style. For interior decor this can mean minimalistic muted tones and monochromatic colour palettes. Black and white always feels right, as long as it is incorporated in simple patterns, piping or other details. A tufted button throw pillow can be a simple and effective place to start.
The Bentall Kennedy Residential Services blog team hopes that these hot decor trends help you stay stylish and comfortable this season.
