Summer flew by in the blink of an eye, and it’s hard to think Labor Day weekend is only a few weeks away. Though we’ve lamented the end of the sunny season in the past, this year? I can’t help but be enthralled by everything about autumn. It’s that time of year again, with the amazing outfits, deliciously crunchy leaves, the Halloween season, roaring fireplaces, and apple cider donuts. We asked some of our favorite interior designers to offer their predictions for the greatest fall décor trends of 2021 in anticipation of all things fall.
Interior design trends have shifted dramatically in the last year. People want to incorporate vivid colors and patterns into their homes after several seasons of white-on-white and Cali-beachy boho aesthetics reigning supreme. Natural stones and woods with a lot of texture that will endure a lifetime are replacing trendy trends.
All of our designers agreed on one thing: it’s time to invest in high-quality, long-lasting objects, regardless of how interiors are evolving. Julie Van Daele of Well Received is particularly pleased to see individuals rejecting large corporations that routinely plagiarize heritage designers in favor of local or developing designs that are original or one-of-a-kind.
Many of these trends have evolved as a result of our increased respect for well-made, durable, aesthetic, and, most importantly, sustainable things. It’s time to surround ourselves with items that not only bring us joy but also improve the overall quality of our lives while having a low environmental impact.
So, what are the other fall design trends?
Farmhouse designs, simplicity, and white interiors, according to Liz Curtis, entertaining expert and founder of rentable tablescape company Table + Teaspoon, are on their way out. Airy interiors no longer suit our stay-at-home nature, as designers have been telling us all year.
Given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding public gatherings, it’s probable that we’ll be entertaining more at home this season, allowing aspirational comfort in our own spaces to take precedence.
Maggie Griffin of Maggie Griffin Design, on the other hand, says she’s “done” with dried cotton arrangements. It’s time to include more vibrant colors and textures into floral accessories, whether they’re dried or fresh.

This fall season, rich, veiny marble, according to Curtis, is enhancing our houses. Calacatta marble side tables, coffee tables, and objets d’art boost the area due to its clearly precious quality and notably assertive nature.
Greens with a lot of depth
Griffin has noted a significant increase in people’s desire to be surrounded by lush greens such as sage, olive, and evergreen. They’re paired with opulent jewel tones such as coral, aubergine, and mustard.
Upholstery with texture
It’s likely that you’ve seen fluffy white sofas all over Instagram. Textured upholstery, such as boucle, houndstooth, and even jute, is all the rage right now, according to Griffin.
Forms that are organic
Van Daele is fascinated by the evolution of ultra-organic and one-of-a-kind furniture shapes. She first saw this new stylistic movement from China’s Kar Studio, and more recently from Daniel Arsham. It’s invigorating and intriguing.
This fall, velvet is making a big comeback, and Curtis is ready for it. Velvet in earth tones is being used for everything from curtains to table linens. The luxurious material is the ideal way to add texture to your look.
Furniture with channeling and flutes
These will continue to be some of the most popular fall décor trends, according to Van Daele. The channeling aesthetic complements a wide range of styles, from contemporary to traditional.
She claims to have noticed channeling in everything from the walls to the sofas, ottomans, and side tables. Consider B&B Italia’s Mario Bellini Camaleonda Sofa, Lulu & Georgia’s Gavin Square Ottoman, or Shoppe Amber Interiors’ Lufton End Table. Many interior designers prefer it.
Tones of Muted Jewels
Deep plums, dark emeralds, rich mushrooms, saturated sapphires, clay reds, and muted mustards will be the pinnacle of elegance this fall, according to Curtis. Autumnal moods come in a more powerful selection of jewel tones, in stark contrast to the pale poolside palettes of the summer.
Rugs with multiple layers
Layering rugs can be a stylish way to give dimension to a more neutral, plain look.
Although it may seem self-evident, Curtis believes candles will be the most popular décor trend this fall. With all of the uncertainty we’ve had in the last year, everyone wants to be warm and cozy. Interior designers put a lot of focus on this.
Twisted candles and extra-long tapers in glass hurricanes or lanterns will create the flickering intimacy that makes us feel comfortable and at home. Hand-molded choices in rich hues are available from Floral Society.
Chintz Griffin is ecstatic about the resurgence of chintzes. And Chintz is a textile that has been woodblock printed, painted, stained, or glazed. Typically, floral designs and other beautiful patterns are printed on the cloths.
Appear for paints that look like plaster, such as Meoded Paint’s Venetian Plaster and Portola Paint’s Roman Clay Paint. It’s something Van Daele has addressed previously, but it’s worth repeating because it’s not going away! KAMP Studios manufactures channeled plaster sculptures such as those mentioned by Van Daele.
Patinas Curtis has witnessed a surge in popularity for both leather and copper patinas this season. As we go towards autumn, the green and brown film makes brown leather and bronze tones feel more rich and sumptuous.
A fresh take on mid-century modern style
As we get into fall, Curtis adds we will start to appreciate a glossy twist on mid-century modern. The minimalist aesthetic has long been associated with the mid-century modern movement.
We’re shaking things up this fall by adopting a “more is more” mindset and sprinkling glamour over the clean lines of the 1950s. This is especially true in the case of illumination. Replacing your overhead lighting with mid-century modern chandeliers is a simple way to freshen up your decor. Swap out the standard bulbs for Edison lights or smoke-hued bulbs for a glitzy touch.
