Bringing Fall’s Newest Trends Using Textiles and Jewel Tones

As the leaves begin to turn and a crisp breeze fills the air, we find ourselves with many options to bring that feeling into our own homes that is suitable for all budgets. The color palette of choice? Rich jewel tones that infuse warmth and sophistication into our spaces. But it’s not just about the shades; it’s about the textures and prints that bring these hues to life, drawing inspiration from the past to create a timeless yet contemporary ambiance. In this blog post, we’ll take a deep dive into the exciting design trends of Fall 2023, exploring larger investments and budget-friendly choices, the world of jewel-toned colors, and the nostalgic embrace of vintage textures and prints.

Jewel Tones for all

Jewel tones are the definite stand out this fall. These deep, saturated colors draw inspiration from precious gemstones like emerald, sapphire, amethyst, and ruby. What really makes these hues stand out is the ability for them to exude glamor and sophistication while also still being applicable to a more cozy and comforting design. Combine these tones with one of the hottest design trends to make any space stand out, color drenching. Imagine walking into a living room where one singular color bathes the room in a lush emerald or a deep sapphire. Essentially, using this method means picking one singular statement color and “drenching” the space in it—accent walls, couches, pillows, vases, or anything you can imagine.

Textures and Prints

Incorporating textures and captivating prints is a key to achieving this enchanting fall decor. Velvet, with its lush and tactile quality, is back in a big way. This classic is transforming sofas, chairs, and throw pillows. The rich and plush texture adds that perfect little touch of sophistication and tactile comfort you wouldn’t get with other textiles. Wool and cashmere, with softness and warmth, add another layer of coziness to the space— creating corners and spaces perfect for curling up with a good book or sitting down for your favorite comfort movie on a chilly night.

In the realm of prints, Fall 2023 draws inspiration from timeless elegance in paisleys, houndstooth, and check prints reminiscent of Burberry’s classic tartan-check. Paisleys offer a bit of whimsy in the intricate swirls, offering a bit of contrast with more sophisticated textures like velvet. Houndstooth and check, on the other hand, add a bit of a structured and tailored touch to furnishings. Whether they end up being accents or a focal point in your design, these prints add depth and character to any space through pillows, throw blankets and drapes.

Putting this Trend to Work

Achieving the coveted Fall 2023 textile style can be as budget-friendly or as extravagant as your preferences and resources allow. For those seeking a cost-effective refresh, it’s all about the art of layering and accessorizing. Incorporating the trend can be as simple as swapping out your throw pillows with richly textured and jewel-toned covers, draping a plush wool or cashmere blanket over your sofa, and adding a rug with a captivating print. These small yet impactful changes infuse your space with the desired style without breaking the bank.

On the other hand, for those willing to invest more significantly in their interior transformation, the possibilities are grander. Consider creating an accent wall by painting it in a deep jewel tone or covering it with opulent wallpaper featuring intricate prints or lush textures. To take it up a notch, you might opt for reupholstering your existing furniture pieces with velvet or investing in new furniture additions that embody the Fall 2023 aesthetic. These high-end choices not only elevate the overall look but also ensure that every element in your space exudes luxury and sophistication. The beauty of this trend lies in its versatility, allowing you to adapt it to your budget while still achieving a stunning and inviting interior.
