Here in Wisconsin, it’s hard not to love fall. The sizzling heat and humidity of summer fade away and the mosquitoes finally take a hike–leaving bright autumn days filled with refreshing air, brilliant colors, and outdoor activities galore. You can stop by a local farm for a hayride and some pumpkin picking, admire the fall foliage as you bike along the Fox River Trail, or drive out to Mayville for Audubon Days. There’s so much to do, and the weather is usually perfect for enjoying it all. When you do finally head inside, you don’t have to leave all of autumn’s beauty at your doorstep. You can bring it in with the latest fall style trends. Here’s a look at some of the most popular trends we’re seeing for the season.
Magnificent colors are a signature of fall. Trees blaze in burnt oranges, rustic reds, and glowing golds. Red and green apples stand out in orchards, while deep purple grapes and vibrant orange pumpkins sit on vines just waiting to be picked. One of the biggest fall style trends this year will be weaving these colors throughout your home. You can pepper your spaces with them in small ways with accents like flowers and throws, or go big with a grand tablescape or piece of furniture. Don’t be afraid to mix in some patterns too. Designs on area rugs, fabrics, and even window coverings are perfect for adding a unique touch of interest to your rooms. Speaking of window coverings, light-filtering honeycomb shades are an amazing choice for enjoying the beauty of fall. They draw in glowing natural light while diffusing glare and giving you the energy-efficiency you need as temperatures drop.

Get Warm & Cozy
While being outside is amazing in the fall, there’s also something about the crisp, cool temperatures and the shortening days that makes you want to snuggle up on the couch or in your favorite chair. Fall really is about embracing warmth and coziness. It’s the season where you take the chill off by lighting fires in your fireplace, wrapping up in warm sweaters and blankets, and drinking hot apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes. Fall style trends this year are all about capturing that feeling in textures throughout your home. Pillows and throws with sweater-like textures (think cable knit and fuzzy) add warmth both literally and in design. Feathers can soften floral displays, and showcasing your fireplace logs in a wire metal basket puts comfort on display. Add to that the classic styling of plantation shutters with their natural wood textures, and your home will be radiating with enduring warmth, charm, and gorgeous natural light.
Fuse & Contrast
This year has brought a lot of different design influences to the forefront. We’ve seen a surge of metallics and distressed wood along with sleek profiles like those of mid-century modern styling. This autumn, they’re all getting fused together. That’s right. Fall style trends are mingling the top looks of 2016 for some serious contrast. Distressed wood will be dressed up with mirrors and metallics. Minimalist pieces will stand out with dominant finishes. As for colors, this year’s “it” colors have mostly been calm, soft shades. Expect to see them contrasted with bright, energizing hues for a distinct look. So, bottom line…find what you love and go with it! Feel free to experiment with high-contrast design all over your home. At your windows, tap into Hunter Douglas’s eye for style.
