Fall 2023 Interior Design Tips for a Cozy Home

Every year when fall hits and the leaves begin to change, we start to make small changes to our interiors to make them cozier for the colder months ahead. The classic, cozy fall style doesn’t change much from year to year. But, you can continue reading below as we provide you with some helpful tips that will make your home feel warm and inviting as we start to spend more time indoors. 

Add Plaid Accessories

Warm-toned colors are always a staple of fall interiors. But, this year, plaid will be having its moment. Expect to see many accessories from throw pillows to rugs and tablecloths in plaid patterns this season. Adding plaid accessories will add a bold pop of color to any space while still keeping it cozy and on-trend. 

Incorporate Cozy Fabrics

Spring and summer are all about the light, gauzy fabrics that make your home feel breathable. But, as the temperatures drop, you may want to bring out those heavier fabrics like wool, velvet, and cashmere. 

Exchange your lighter throws for weightier ones, and don’t be afraid to try something new like velvet curtains. Depending on your personal preferences, you can use these heavy fabrics to add a variety of textures and depth to make the space look interesting and cozy. 

Decorate with Vintage Finds

This year, retro design has been a major focal point for the industry, and fall decor will be no different. The distressed, rugged look of vintage items tends to have a cozier nostalgia-laden feel already, which lends itself well to fall interior design. 

As you look to make some changes to your interior this fall, take a visit to the antique market or thrift store before you buy something first hand. Maybe you’ll find a new lamp, candlesticks, or vase that will add a unique touch to your space. 

Embrace Natural Materials

Natural materials have been hot in the design world for a while now, and this trend won’t be going anywhere this fall, either. Incorporating wood furniture and accessories can add warmth to a space, while still making it feel refreshing and authentic to autumn. Other natural materials like jute, wicker, and cane will all still be popular and widely used throughout the season. 

Consider Seasonal Decor

For an elegant and stylish home, you probably don’t want to overdo it when it comes to seasonal fall decor. But, there is a way to add tasteful pieces that help you celebrate the warmth and splendor of the season without making it feel too gaudy. 

You can opt for organic items like pumpkins, squash, and gourds to adorn your entryway, your dining table, or shelves. Plus, candles instantly infuse warmth into the space and are a staple for fall decorating any year. Another great idea is to add dried fall blooms to a vase for a more rustic look. Wreaths are also a classic option to dress up your walls or doors with some seasonal flair.
