While the way one chooses to accent the interior of their home is truly a subjective matter, several new styles are inspiring homeowners this autumn in Colorado. Industry experts are sharing trends they’re loving for the fall season—and which ones they wish would go away. Of course, it’s important to choose what design style you love, regardless of what trends might be ‘in’. As the weather shifts from summer to fall, it can be fun (and not to mention easy) to make a few changes to your home that will brighten your space and likely improve the resale value of your home.
Jewel-Tone Pops of Color
From deep purple or green throw pillows, to bold accent walls, contrasting cabinets, and colorful fabrics, jewel tones are infiltrating spaces in Colorado this fall. Jewel tones should always be blended with light neutrals so that they do not overpower a room, and should be used sparingly to avoid an oversaturated look. Navy cabinets with light color walls and countertops are making a comeback, and provide a sleek and sophisticated look in any space.
Focus on Art
Incorporating art into the home is a trend taking center stage this fall in Colorado. Increasingly, homeowners are not just purchasing more art, they are designing entire rooms around their collections. With many brands focusing on high-quality, affordable art, incorporating good art into the home is no longer an afterthought to the design process.
In urban environments, smaller-scale living spaces are inspiring furnishings that not only look sleek and stylish, but that also offer great multifunctional use. Consider upcycling your old clunky desk for one well-designed multipurpose table that doubles as both a dining room table and a work surface. Instantly, you will have created more openness in your space.
What’s Out? Raw White-Only Spaces
While the color white can add to the open, fresh, and cleanly look and feel of a space, it’s important not to go overboard. Keep your space warm by blending alternate neutrals in white spaces, and if you are partial to white-only spaces, incorporate weathered or natural whites, including a chalky or bone white into your palatte.
Mountain residences tend to evoke and demand a sense of awe, like the stunning landscapes that surround them. Incorporating textures like velvet and wood, along with bold colors contrasted with pastels, help add dimension to any room within a resort-area home. Lustrous mixed metals combined with matte elements offer an intriguing effect, like the way the rugged beauty of the surrounding outdoors, works effortlessly with the warm, calming interiors of resort-area homes.
