IN: Dark Green
The leaves outside may be changing, but inside, things are going green—especially kitchen cabinets, like in this room designed by Erin Napier on HGTV’s Home Town. Combined with rich natural wood and leather and accented with brass and cream, the cozy color is a perfect fit for fall and winter.
Feeling overwhelmed with your digital devices? This trend is for you. People on Pinterest are carving out cozy, more intimate areas in their homes to serve as tech-free sanctuaries. An obvious place to unplug? The bedroom. Surround your sleeping space with canopies or lace curtains hung from a faux wooden beam, as in this genius project by Love Grows Wild. Pull a comfy chair into a corner for an instant reading nook, or hang a hammock inside and layer with soft blankets.
IN: Woven Texture
So long, millennial pink! Blush is back and better than ever. Decor inspired by Benjamin Moore’s “Tissue Pink” paint was all over High Point Market this year. And home accents in a range of shades, like this pretty pink pantry by deVOL, prove rosy hues are here to stay.
“I’m loving anything and everything in the color blush pink,” Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy Trend Expert, tells CountryLiving.com. “From vintage glassware, to velvet pillows, to painted planters, everything looks great in blush.”
IN: Faux Finishes
Due for an update but don’t have the funds? You don’t have to spend a fortune to make some improvements. Increased availability of faux finishes, from removable wallpaper and floor decals(pictured) to stick-on subway tiles, to the faux florals and wooden beams of Fixer Upper fame, have made it easier and cheaper than ever to make quick home improvements.
Brass is the new copper, especially when incorporated into furniture in an overt way, says Anne White, personal styling manager at BHLDN + Home at Anthropologie. Take this sectional with a beautiful brass frame, for example.
Not into the chunky knit? Dying to ditch your duvet? This fall, we predict a return to an old classic. “I love quilts of all kinds and I feel they have, in recent years, been replaced by duvets,” Selke says. “Quilts offer a handmade, homey element to any bedroom—modern or traditional.”
Forget farmhouse white and gray! This season, it’s all about drama. PPG Paints, Glidden Paints, and Olympic Paints & Stains all announced cozy shades of black as their 2018 Color of the Year—Black Flame (PPG1043-7), Deep Onyx (00NN 07/000), and Black Magic (OL116), respectively.
Not ready to go completely over to the dark side? Another deep color is also making a comeback: “Adding chocolate brown to your decor and is the best way to add some luxe—especially in the fall,” Audrey Margarite, the creative director of Bunny Williams Home, tells CountryLiving.com. “Swap out your lighter colored pillows and throws for this rich hue.”
IN: Interesting Bedding
Strip off those plain white sheets and try something more exciting this season. “Nowadays we are seeing a lot more pattern being put together and even paired with interesting monograms,” Howard says. “I think as time passes this will become more and more prevalent.” Some of his favorite sources include Les Indiennes, Leontine Linens, Kerry Cassill, and John Robshaw. Beyond bedding, custom, upholstered headboards as statement pieces are having a major moment.
IN: Terra Cotta Tile
Terra cotta tiles are back—and if you ask us, they never left. Incorporate the classic earthenware to add warmth and character to your home, as in this cozy farmhouse featured in new book New Romance.

IN: Extending the Outdoor Season
“People want to stay outdoors longer and they’re looking for new ways to do just that as we approach the cooler months,” Fishburne says. “Start by investing in a deep seating patio set and complement it with a fire pit or outdoor heater for warmth. This is also a good time to update your planters, rugs, and throw pillows by transitioning to warmer fall colors and textures. Another small detail that goes a long way is adding a fall wreath. All of this plays into the theme of creating that cozy, calm, inviting space and home to help combat our crazy-busy lives.”
