This fall winter season is one to rejoice and celebrate. With two pandemic years behind us, we are heading towards a post-pandemic reflection of ethos, an exploratory mood and a personal style in our spaces. This season is about experimentation and not being limited to binary ideas of what a home should be.
Autumn Winter 2022-23 will see a longing and a desire for things that are timeless and add a touch of nostalgia to our surroundings. “With so much progress across the planet in recent years, it’s no surprise that an ever-increasing number of individuals desire a sense of comfort, timelessness or even a touch of sentimentality in their homes. From design mixing, shunned or flanged furniture, and the consolidation of antique pieces, this new year is linked to respect for our foundations and traditions,” says Nidhi Aggarwal, Founder, Spacemantra.
Individuals are beginning to realize that they can live with less, especially after the Covid year. “Individuals will start to downsize, or stay in their continuous homes and get imaginative with how their spaces can be multifunctional. For example, having your front room a partial office or on the other side office that has turned into an exercise room,” adds Aggarwal.
That said, we all love classic fall trends. They provide a fresh way to decorate our home for the fall season. Here are some must-have home decor trends to get your space ready for a cozy winter.
Brighten up your home in fresh colors with cushions and throws
Add the autumn mood to your homes with colorful elements such as cushions, rugs and throws. They will completely change the space. “Choose one statement piece that will inject a burst of vibrant vitality into a space with clean white walls and neutral essentials such as a sofa and a coffee table. Anything from autumn colored sofa cushions to a vibrant rug can be considered,” says Heny Savla , Designer, Livspace.
Add as many accessories as you like
A simple method to liven up a living room color design is to add colorful accent pieces; adding accessories instantly increases the space. “Moving your accent items around each corner can change the look. You can switch up your color scheme by choosing a powerful fall accent color to accessorize with,” Savla opines.
Add fresh flowers to console tables and side tables
An easy way to brighten up any area of the home for the season is to swap summer flowers for fall-inspired blooms. For the ideal autumn tables, use arranged stems on console and side tables. You can also add a cheerful touch to your autumn mantle. If you choose lush flowers in rich reds, greens and oranges, your home will instantly feel like fall.
Use authentic wood
Wood in modern interiors is a reinterpretation of pre-existing concepts such as statement walls, high beams, finished ceilings and treated floors. “Wood, with its earthy glow and natural texture, organically adds sincerity in homes where steel and concrete have become commonplace. It enhances contemporary spaces with an inspiring sense of rusticity,” says Paushika Gupta, Architect & Interior Designer and founder of Paushika Gupta Architecture + Design.
Woven fabrics are having a moment in everything from interior design to fashion. Whether you prefer a bohemian, traditional or minimalist aesthetic, there is a way to incorporate some natural texture into your life. “When shopping for woven furniture, make sure it’s made from high-quality materials that can withstand daily wear and tear,” adds Gupta. Soft, natural elements will add depth and dimension to your contemporary space, while also nicely complementing your woven pieces.
Bring a wonderful fragrance into your home
One of the most overlooked aspects is the flavor. The sense of smell has a strong association with our memory and moods. “Scented candles, reed diffusers, potpourri, air fresheners and aroma mixers affect how you feel when you enter your room on cold evenings. Fragrances with earthy, warm and woody notes give your homes a sense of comfort and relaxation,” opines Kiran Ranga, MD, Ripple Fragrance & Master Fragrance Creator. Vanilla, lavender, apple cinnamon and amber are good choices to make your home smell like the holidays.
Use ambient lights instead of general lights throughout the day
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of creating a beautiful space. While nothing beats natural light, indirect lighting enhances a space. Use ambient lighting instead of general lighting throughout the day.
Candles bring life to every corner in which they are placed
The subtle golden hues, beautiful looks and soothing aromas are what really add so much to one’s space decor, be it any style. “Dining tables, foyer, side tables and console tables are the most popular placements. We believe that lighting candles almost anywhere in the house can completely lift the atmosphere and mood of the place. So, feel free and experiment with your home decor and let the candles bring life and light to every nook and cranny of your home,” comments Vineet Arora, Founder and CEO, Rad Living.
Add picture frames to the blank wall
Not only do photos capture fond memories and fleeting moments with loved ones, they can be added to a blank wall to brighten up the corners of your home. Add a mix of colored, black and white and sepia-toned memories to instantly bring a unique warmth to your space.
