We’re here to guide you through the top 5 fall decor trends of 2023, helping you transform your living space into a cozy haven that perfectly captures the essence of autumn. From timeless approaches to natural elements and muted color palettes, we've got you covered. Plus, we've handpicked inspiring books that will provide you with all the creative guidance you need to infuse these trends into your home. Let's dive into the trends and recommendations!

Trend 1: Avoid heavy themes and take a more timeless approach.

This fall, it's all about moving away from heavy themes and instead embracing a timeless approach with the power of color. Say goodbye to an abundance of seasonal trinkets like faux pumpkins, scarecrows, and skeletons and say hello to classic pieces that nod to fall through carefully chosen colors.

Book Recommendation: Cozy Minimalist Home
To help you achieve this balance, we recommend Cozy Minimalist Home by Myquillyn Smith. This book goes beyond trends and empowers you to create a beautiful, stylish, and comfortable home on any budget.

Trend 2: Lean into natural elements in decor.

Bringing the outdoors in has been a dominant trend throughout 2023, and this fall is no different. Lean into natural elements like tree branches, dried florals, greenery, and wood accents to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.

Book Recommendation: Cozy White Cottage, Seasons
To guide you in incorporating nature's beauty into your decor, we recommend Cozy White Cottage, Seasons by Liz Marie Galvan. This book is filled with DIY ideas, recipes, and inspiring photos to help you feel at home in every season, making your living space a true sanctuary of natural comfort.

Trend 3: Utilize subtle pops of black.

Leaning into black elements can help transition any space from a light and airy summer ambiance to a cozy, more dramatic look for fall. However, make sure to be light-handed! Adding black to your space can be as simple as adding in a black lantern, picture frame, or black iron candlesticks.

Book Recommendation: The Art of Home
To master the art of design with sophistication, look no further than The Art of Home by Shea McGee. This book empowers you to create impactful rooms that remain inviting and approachable. Let Shea guide you through each room, helping you infuse subtle touches of black and other natural elements to achieve a perfectly balanced and captivating ambiance.

Trend 4: Muted, earthy colors are taking over.

While earthy tones are a staple of fall decor, 2023 introduces a more muted approach to traditional pumpkin oranges and vibrant yellows. Honey gold has been named the color of the season, accompanied by subdued shades like sage green, dulled orange, and brick red. Neutrals like white, brown, and black complete the palette.


Book Recommendation: White and Faded
To navigate this palette with grace, we recommend White and Faded by Janet Parrella-Van Den Berg. This book not only guides you in incorporating muted colors into your decor but also offers insights into personal transformation through the lens of design.

Trend 5: Incorporate varying textures to create contrast and depth.

Adding depth to your space is essential for a cozy fall atmosphere. Mix and match textures such as velvet pillows, chunky knit blankets, and woven patterns to achieve a captivating and layered look.


Book Recommendation: Homebody
To master the art of texture, we recommend Homebody by Joanna Gaines. This book is a guide to creating spaces that you never want to leave. With an emphasis on coziness and comfort, Homebody will inspire you to experiment with textures and create a welcoming environment that's perfect for the fall season.

As the fall season welcomes a new wave of inspiration, there's no better time to transform your living space into a haven of warmth, comfort, and style. From timeless color approaches to embracing nature's beauty, subtle touches of black, muted earthy tones, and textured depth, these five fall decor trends offer a wealth of possibilities. Embrace the season's beauty and bring it into your home with confidence and creativity.
