Top 6 Fall Decor Trends

One of the many fabulous things about living in Maryland is experiencing all four seasons throughout the year. As fall begins to grace us with its presence swimsuits are traded for sweaters, watermelons for pumpkins, and orange crushes for stouts. It is not uncommon for people to start spending more time indoors to stay cozy. As you reorient your activities and tastes for the fall, don’t forget about your apartment! Here are the top six home decor trends to freshen up your space this fall:

Pops of Color

Gray is out and pops of bright color are in! This doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy all new furniture. You can bring a little color to any existing couch or armchair with playful pillows or a tasteful throw blanket.

Plants That Take Care of Themselves (Well, almost)

Shorter days mean fewer hours of sunlight to nurture your houseplants. Do yourself a favor and exchange ‘needy’ plants for those that require less attention such as succulents, ZZ plants, Philodendrons, or Monstreas. And of course, you could always opt for fake plants, which really do take care of themselves.

Back to Basics Furniture

Gone are the days of ornate or ‘heavy’ furniture. Nowadays it is all about clean lines and functionality. When seeking a new dining set or coffee table keep it simple with muted tones and storage space. Your kitchen table can be accented with pops of color from your plate settings.

Metallic Accents

Shiny never looked so good! Forget about waiting for special holidays to add a little sparkle to your apartment, add it now. From cool geometric lamps to candle holders to wall accents, metallic shimmer is the perfect way to add some edge to your space.


Velvet blankets, chairs, and pillows add a bit of texture to any room. The slightly shimmery material will go well with your metallic accents. The elegant style of velvet is sure to elevate your apartments overall decor.

Playful Patterns

If pops of color and different texture materials aren’t your thing, then implementing playful patterns might be. From the living area to the bathroom, patterns are eye-catchers. Consider spicing up your space with a patterned rug, shower curtain, or comforter.
