Fall Interior Design Trends for your Kitchen
Ahh, autumn. The cooler weather. The festivities. The beautiful transformation of nature. And it’s a wonderful time to reflect on the changes that we’re able to make as well. One way to express that is with the decor of your home — the exterior, the living room, even the kitchen. Or, considering the importance of kitchens in the fall, especially the kitchen. Here are some cool interior design trends for yours.
COTTAGE / CABIN FEEL
First, there was the “cottagecore” aesthetic with its airy, romantic, idealized rural aesthetic. Then there was “cabincore,” which went a step further into cozy town. Now you can feel free to take whatever you like from each trend and add an urbane touch. This is the 21st century, after all.
When selecting decor, look for warm, earthy tones like cinnamon, beige, burnt umber, and sage. Pick just a few comforting colors that blend well together. Bring your favorite shades of autumn into your house.
COZY IT UP
Fabrics with soft fringe or furry texture such as wool or sherpa can add warmth to your kitchen. Their cozy quality is comforting but can be chic as well. Don’t be afraid to combine a couple of textures, styles, and colors. Just don’t overdo it.
BRING NATURE IN
Squash and pumpkins. A bowl of walnuts. Dried flowers and (artificial) autumn leaves. Acorns? Why not? Commune with nature but without the rain and the bugs, in the comfort of your fresh autumn kitchen.
SPLIT UP, GANG
Wide-open floor plans have their benefits. But privacy is nice too, especially as the pandemic has had many of us spending a lot more time at home. Explore the possibilities of retro-style room dividers and partitions. Large kitchens can be divided with serving counters. Other rooms can be divided with decorative partition screens, desks, or bookcases. These items can be very useful as well as attractive, and they make your living space more flexible.
GO BIG AND GO HOME
While you’re in a mindset to update and improve, consider more substantial kitchen enhancements. Replace those old countertops, sinks, and faucets. A new interior trend to consider could be called au naturel. Instead of items that contrast boldly with their surroundings (black items on a white background for instance) go for a softer assortment of looks that blend gently into each other.
