It’s officially fall. And since we are all spending so much time at home these days, you are probably getting tired of looking at the same scenery everyday. So, it’s the perfect time for a fall decor refresh. We’ve gathered some of our favorite modern trends for Autumn decor this year to help inspire you.
You can expect to see the usual suspects - earthy tones, thicker fabrics, and pumpkins, to name a few. But when it comes to color, the typical trends are taking a slight shift. Of course browns and oranges will still be prominent, but in more muted shades.
Sustainability is coming more to the forefront. Expect to see plenty of jute, hemp, organic cotton, and other more eco-friendly materials. Even the decorative pumpkins this year will be wrapped in raffia and corn husk rope.
Rattan continues to be big into the fall, not just for your patio, but inside the house as well. Bonus mention: cane and amber are making their comebacks this season.
Switching out your fabrics is one of the easiest ways to change the look of your home without having to do anything major. Simply swapping out your rug or comforter for something with more earth tones can completely switch up the mood of your room.
Texture is always key for fabrics in the fall and winter seasons. Think velvet, chunky knit throws, bobble pillows, tassels and lots of layering.
Your home may be serving double (or triple) duty these days with remote working and learning, but it should still be your sanctuary at the end of the day. This fall we’ll be seeing a lot of cozy reading nooks and soft spots to curl up with a cup of coffee or tea. Poufs, pillows and blankets required.
It seems like overnight pampas grass took the fall decor spotlight. We anticipate you’ll see these reedy grasses in vases and centerpieces everywhere this season. You can also go for dried wheat, ruscus, or golden-hued flowers.
We are so excited to launch our new rugs on Woven Nook! Each of our 6 designs are handcrafted with quality materials and come in three different sizes: 5x7, 8x10 and 9x12.
But before you can click Add to Cart on one of our new rugs, you need to know which size is right for your space. This guide will help you decide your rug layout and size, based on what room it’s going in.
No matter what room, the right rug size will be determined by the size and shape of the space, as well as your furniture. So get that measuring tape out and write down what you are working with.
In the living room, you will most typically see two rug layout options. First, where the front legs of your furniture rest on the rug, and second, all legs.
For front legs only, the edge of the rug should fall somewhere near the middle of your couch seats, not right up on either the front or back legs. If you are going with all legs on, make sure the rug extends at least 6” beyond the furniture.
The choice pretty much comes down to personal preference, however, you do want to make sure and leave at least a one foot border between the rug and the walls. Also, all legs on the rug can help anchor a living room in a big open space, but you do what you love.
Like the living room, you have a couple different options available, depending on the size of your bed.
For a queen bed, you can place a 5x8 horizontally under the front two-thirds of your bed, allowing for about 2’ feet on each side. Or, choose an 8x10 and place the rug all the way under your headboard and nightstands. For a bigger room with more open floorspace, lay a 9x12 in the same position.
With a king, a 5x8 rug is not recommended. The 8x10 now takes the place at the front two-thirds of the bed, and the 9x12 stays put all the way under the nightstands.
Alternatively, you can place two smaller rugs on either side of the bed, or, if your bed is in a corner, just use one rug on the open side. Choose a rug size that is wider than your nightstands, but won’t extend past the foot of your bed. With this option, the rug should be free, not under any furniture legs.
General rule of thumb for a rug in the dining room - leave at least 2’ of rug space on each side of your table. This will provide enough room to pull chairs out without pulling them off the rug. This also means you are probably looking at an 8x10 rug at a minimum.
An 8x10 rug will work for a standard 55” six-person table, up to about a standard 80” eight-person table. Beyond that, you’ll want to jump up to a 9x12. 8x10 rugs also work for round and square tables, or opt for a round or square rug at least 2’ wider than your table all around.Just follow these guidelines to get yourself started, and be sure and check out our new Woven Nook rugs to find the perfect rug to add style to any room in your home!
Working from home, online school from home, spending all your time at home… It’s a lot. And it probably means you have been repurposing many of your rooms for different activities.
