Now that fall is in full swing, you may wonder what fabrics work best in your home this time of year. Not only do the temperatures begin to change, but fall and winter just have a different vibe. Instead of light and airy, it’s all about warm and cozy. In order to achieve that look and feel, however, it takes the right kinds of fabrics. Here are some pointers that will help you choose the best fabrics for fall and winter.
Warm Color Palette
When purchasing fabric for fall and winter, invest in ones that showcase warm and inviting hues such as mustard yellow, ruby red, and burnt orange. These colors look good on window treatments, table linens, throw pillows, and even upholstery, so use them wherever you want to amplify coziness. For maximum impact, mix some of these hues together.
Take a Deeper Dive
With color, that is. Aside from warm colors, deeper tones are also perfect for this time of year. Swap out those light greens, blues, yellows, pinks, and purples for deeper versions. Think jewel tones and rich hues like burgundy, olive, copper, crimson, pecan, mustard, eggplant, midnight, and hunter green. These colors look fabulous as window dressings or on rugs, but can also be used on decorative pillows and even artwork.
There are so many shades of white, making it a color that is versatile for every season. Rather than bright whites, fall and/or winter whites are typically softer, creamier whites like marshmallow, oatmeal, coconut, and linen. That doesn’t mean frosty whites don’t have their place. If it’s a winter wonderland style you’re going for, then something a bit more like the color of snow is definitely the best option. To keep a monochromatic palette from falling flat, be sure to layer in a lot of different textures.
Fall for Flowers
Believe it or not, floral patterns are a gorgeous option for fall and winter. All you need to do is choose flowers and colors that are more fitting for the season. Florals are very versatile, so they can work anywhere you want a splash of personality.
Texture Never Fails
Texture is one of the easiest ways to elevate the warmth and coziness of a home this time of year. To really add visual appeal, mix different types of fabrics together within the space. Wool rugs, chunky knit throws, tassel window treatments, and faux fur pillows are just a few ideas to get you started.
Patterns can also give the appearance of texture. We already mentioned how lovely the right floral print can be this time of year, but there are several other patterns that can give your home a fresh, seasonal look.
