Top 5 Fall Decor Trends for 2017
Recently, I was invited to attend a media preview event at the new Frontgate Flagship store at Phipps Plaza, in Atlanta. I was swept away by the elegant, yet approachable home décor that seamlessly mixed a variety of styles in a rustic luxe fashion.
While at the event, I spoke with Kate Beebe from Frontgate and got the scoop on all the hottest Fall decor trends for this season. Hold on to your garlands, because these trends are going to make you swoon.
Keep reading and catch my entire interview with Kate at the bottom of this post!
Fall Decor Trend Number 1: Have fun with Ornaments
Ornaments are not just for the tree this season. Incorporate these beautiful mini pieces of art into ALL your Fall and holiday decorating.
But how should you do this?
Easy–incorporate them into everything!
There is NO WRONG WAY. You seriously cannot mess this up–unless of course, you add glitter and create a huge mess. But that’s for another blog post…
Hang your ornaments with elegant ribbon
You can hang them from a staircase banister, a curtain rod, a chandelier, a mantel, etc.
Add ornaments to containers like cloches (glass dome containers).
Since I don’t have a Christmas tree, I’m personally a big fan of adding blue and gold ornaments to glass vases. I’ve been doing this for years–it’s a super easy way to add color to your space.
Add ornaments to furniture
ProTip: Kate, from Frontgate, suggests hanging ornaments with ribbon. She likes to attach them to curtain rods or chandeliers for something unexpected.
Next, we have glass ornaments in the coffee table and the metallic and faux fur pillows adorning the adjacent sofa. They’ve mixed the metallics, fur, glass holiday elements all together.
Don’t you just LOVE these hand-blown glass ornaments? They were designed by jim Marvin who decorates for the White House!
Fall Decor Trend Number 2: Metalics and Non-Traditional Color
- In my interview with Kate, she shows us how to easily create a whimsical Winter Wonderland by using non-traditional colors such as lavender and grey.
- Kate also suggests adding feathers for a more fashion forward style. (Scroll down to watch the video)
- Metalic colors can be added anywhere, even as accents in your tree skirts! And when paired with faux fur pillows, they had a cozy Hygge touch. Read more about easily incorporating Scandinavian Hygge style into your home here.
The best thing about using nontraditional colors is that once the holiday is over, you can keep them around and they still work. You don’t have to box them up when the season is over.
Fall Decor Trend Number 3: Add Chinoiserie…everywhere.
Incorporate them as ornaments, as shown above, or on the mantel. The more the merrier (pardon the pun).
Mixing up the colors applies to the chinoiserie as well!
So as you can see in this picture, instead of the traditional blue chinoiserie, the designer has used orange, which gives a warm, harvest feel.
Fall Decor Trend Number 4: Contain Your Decor with Cloches and Lanterns
Cloches (or detachable glass domes) and lanterns are great way to add to your decor. They allow you contain smaller pieces together (example: multiple ornaments, or a mix of greenery, etc) or they bring added atmosphere with battery powered candles. Lanterns are nice as they provide a welcome feel year round. And glass cloches are wonderful because their neutral design allows for great flexibility. Both can be transformed into a different style each season.
For festive Fall feel, dress them in autumn hues like pumpkins or faux leaves. Then switch it up again in December with holiday greenery.
Here are some easy ways to use cloches and lanterns;
- Fill with ornaments. If you’re using glass ornaments, cover with the bottom, then slowly turn right-side up. If you’re using glass-be VERY careful as you do this so as to not break the glass.
- Fill with greenery
- Create a terrarium with succculents (faux or real)
- Fill with battery powered candles
