Cozy Home Style For Fall

Fall is here, and with it comes new opportunities to style your home for the new season. This is the time of year when we all start to huddle a little closer together in anticipation of the holidays and chillier weather. At the same time, our interiors reflect this by becoming warmer and more inviting. In this month’s segment of Steal The Look, we’re going to break down this cozy, modern room setting so that you can see which elements might be right for your home decor this fall.

 

With the seasons changing, you will likely be spending more time indoors than out, so the look and the comfort of your sofa will become more important than ever. Selecting a neutral-colored sectional is always a good base to build your living room on because it gives you a perfect foundation over which to lay a colorful arrangement of accessories. It’s even better for fall decorating because many of those neutral earth-tones are fall colors. If you want a modern sectional that is low to the ground, offers soft cushions and is so comfortable that you will never want to get up, look no further than the Harding Sectional from Room &Board.

Take a look at the most recent fashion trends and you’ll notice something exciting: fall is getting more colorful. The best way to bring this bright new trend to your fall decor is with throw pillows. Layering a sofa or sectional with pillows is one of the most enjoyable parts of the decorating process. It can also be one of the most overwhelming because there are just so many options. Cutting down the options is always a matter of personal taste, but there are a few stylist tricks that will make creating the right pillow arrangement a breeze. First, choose an odd number of pillows to place on the sectional (think 5, 7, or 9 based on your ideal comfort level and the size of your seating). Second, look for opportunities to create variation in the sizes and shapes of the pillows. We all love 20 x 20” square pillows, but mix it up a little by throwing in a kidney shape here and there. You can also mix smaller and larger sizes of the same shape. This will help to create visual interest by layering patterns at different heights and on different scales. When recreating this particular color palette and style look for global patterns like batik, African mudcloth, and other vintage fabrics with pattern to layer on your sectional. If you’re wondering where to find these types of pillows, you’re in luck, because I have a suggestion. Visit the pillow collection page over at Studio Matsalla. I want, literally, every single pillow they offer, and chances are, you will too.
