Into the Woods
Because what’s better than bringing the outdoors in? Embrace the changing weather without having to leave the comfort of your couch or pause a single show on Netflix with the help of this seasonally-appropriate print.
Paisley seems like a no-brainer when it comes to autumnal patterns, but the surprise here is the use of color. Yes, you could go with the usual dark burgundies or burnt oranges, but switching it up and going a bit bolder gives any space more of a timeless vibe.
Birds of a Feather
If you like to go a little more creative and avant-garde, this dark, artistic flock of animated birds will help provide some dimension and uniqueness to your room. Your fine china and antiques will instantly look a little bit more modern with the help of these fine feathered friends.
Chic & Chevron
We’ve said goodbye to summer, but we don’t have to say goodbye to one of its signature prints. Chevron seems cheery and bright, which isn’t always fall-friendly, but choosing an autumnal color can make all the difference.
Check on it
Subtlety isn’t everyone’s strong suit, but houndstooth is a shrewd way of mixing bold patterns with more muted colors. It’s versatile enough that it can survive every season, and pairs well with just about everything from wallpaper to throw pillows.
From the Hearth
Your not-so-log cabin will immediately feel more rustic and cozy with the added texture of wood used as a pattern. It can be creative or classic, depending on how daring you’re willing to go with your decor adventure.
A Perfect Pear
Surprise, surprise. Not every tree has to be barren this time of year. You can add an unexpected touch to a more standard pattern with the help of gilded pears and a seasonally-appropriate color palette.
Ok, you can’t exactly restructure or rebuild from the ground up, but exposed brick is actually very appropriate for autumn. The rich reds call to mind the changing leaves and bricks can make any space feel a little comfier.
Spinning classics into something totally new is a decor devotee’s version of spinning straw into gold. Your flannels and blankets don’t have to be the only plaid items in your place and luckily, adding a plaid accent wall still keeps things neutral.
In the Shadows
Art might usually hang in museums or on walls, but the walls themselves can also serve as art. In this case, a cool, eerily chic pattern gives this accent wall a real one-of-a-kind feel.
