6 Runway Clothing Trends Making Their Way Into Home Fashion This Fall

Runway fashion often impacts home fashion in color, pattern and texture. Take in the looks shown at New York Fashion Week, and chances are some form will be making its way into new furniture and accessories. Elle Décor recently identified six fashion trends that have made their way to home design. Are any of these currently gracing your home?

Deconstructed Classics

A mix of patterns and textures turned classic clothing like tailored suits and trench coats into unique pieces. Our Moshe Chairs use this trend to turn seating into fun statement pieces for your space. The mix of colors and patterns are unique, taking a classic, retro-shape chair and making it current.

Red

A lot of designers sent red down the runway in everything from dresses to shoes to hats. Put a pop of red into your room with a bold piece like our Aaron Bookcase. The sliding glass doors offer a fun update to your storage, while the vibrant red finish is stunning and sophisticated when paired with neutrals.

Velvet

Nothing says class and style quite like velvet, and designers were using this luxurious fabric in dresses, coats and accessories. Our Pin Tufted Futon in navy velvet will bring that sense of elegance to your home. The sleek arms and tapered wooden legs add a modern twist to a traditional fabric choice.

70s Plaid

Women’s clothing got a masculine touch with brown and rust plaids reminiscent of the ‘70s. This trend translates into the home when used on upholstery. Our ROMA Carmen II Accent Chair features a neutral plaid that looks updated with its exposed wooden frame.

Glitter

Designers were using metallic threading to add bursts of bling to clothing on the runway. This trend beautifully translates to home by adding crystals that reflect the light. Our Glitz and Glam Table Lamp is the perfect bedazzled addition to décor with its curvaceous, crystal-adorned base that sparkles the light cast from above.

Matryoshka Doll

Remember the Russian nesting dolls that were adorned with lots of color and pattern? This look walked down the runway with coats and sweaters that boasted lots of personality. Bring this look to the home with bold toss pillows, such as our Limerick Flower Pillow. It will add fun pop of color and pattern to any space with its striking floral embroidery.

 

Transitioning Your Home into Fall

The air is crisp. The cider mills are fragrant with spice and doughnuts. And Halloween is on the horizon. The calendar and the weather say Fall, and that means it’s time to generate warmth inside your home.

One of the best ways to prepare for cooler temps is by adding layers to each room in your home. Here are some tips for feathering your nest:

candle-chandelier

Kitchen and Dining Room

Add warmth to your table by using placemats and table runners. Use centerpieces in the deep colors of nature, by bringing in flowers and leaves from your back yard. Add accents to the room, such as baskets, pottery and bowls of fruit.

Dress up your table with a new statement chandelier, such as this Candle Chandelier. Give the area a more intimate and cozy feel by hanging lighting lower; a good rule of thumb is that the bottom of the fixture should hang 30” to 36” from the tabletop.

 

Wood furniture visually warms up a room with the energy of its grain. If you’re in the market for a new kitchen set or dining room suit, consider cherry, pine or oak. Our Brownstone Dining Collection would be the perfect setting for Thanksgiving Dinner.

Shag-rug

Living Room and Family Room

Add throw pillows covered in textured fabrics such as tweed or faux fur to sofas and chairs. Drape blankets and throws over chair backs or on sofa arms. Functional, they make the room appear visually warmer, as well. Layer the room with plush rugs underfoot, choosing rich colors to both ground and insulate. Our Indochine Cream Shag Rug is a great choice.

sidney-road

When adding new furnishings, choose those covered in soft fabrics. Warm and welcoming in trendy charcoal gray, our Sidney Road Truffle Collection is a great choice for fall entertaining. Or choose leather, which adds visual warmth to a room and variety to the texture mix. Wooden coffee and end tables also add warmth. Layer them with lamps, pottery accents and trays to hold candles or mugs.

warm-bedroom

Bedroom

Dress your room for the season by adding drapes over existing shades or blinds. Cover the floor or carpet with an area rug to provide a warm entrance into your day. And always add a blanket to the bed; consider faux fur that will add visual and physical warmth, taking the chill out of the air.

Throw a tablecloth on the nightstand and use a dimmer on bedside lamps to create an intimate and cozy setting. Add more texture to the room with an upholstered headboard. Choose a plush fabric like velvet, microsuede or leather, coordinated with throw pillows.

The goal in getting ready for fall is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere … for guests, but especially for you and your family.

Three Accent Pillows That Instantly Update Your Home for Fall

Sometimes all you need to give your room a whole new look is a new accent pillow. Here are three that will add texture and warmth to your room, underscoring your sense of style.

The Oakfield Pillow Collection features a striking patchwork design with hair on hide. It’s available in black, tan or brown.

The Tibetan Sheep Fur Pillow is plush and cozy, bringing a sense of glam in your room. It’s available in several colors and sizes.

This Suede Buckle Pillow looks tailored and stylish with its slim faux leather belt and trim.

Magnolia Makeover: A Special Home Makeover for a US Army Veteran

Last night’s Fixer Upper was special; instead of helping someone purchase and renovate a home, Joanna and Chip upgraded a house built in the 1940s for a military vet and his wife. Joanna worked to expand the 800-square-foot home, using creative ways to add function, space, warmth and beauty. We love how airy the small living room looks. If you like the style, we’ve got the look.

Start with the slipcover-style sofa. Practical and classic, it sets an easy and casual tone in the room. We have the exact piece, the Benchmark Sofa from Magnolia Home, available by custom order in our showroom. Or choose the easy style of our Larimar Sofa, with its rolled arms, dressmaker skirt and light upholstery.

Next, add a pair of casual leather chairs. Our Perry Chair upholstered in a warm brown shade of 100% genuine leather is a good choice. Its track arms, simple lines and comfortable seat make it a casual favorite.

Finally, add the industrial style cocktail table and end tables. The Pier & Beam collection from Magnolia Home has a butcher block look finished in rustic salvage with a chimney metal frame and legs. The pieces add a sense of history and character to your room.

 

Making over your room is easy with Magnolia Home. Are you ready for your fixer upper?
