Turn up the texture this fall with patterns to evoke the season. Here are six for your consideration.
Tribal prints bring an international flare into your home. Varying in style and color by culture, these ethnic patterns will provide great visual interest into your space. Have fun mixing and matching tribal textiles with solid-colored furnishings and decor (West Elm, $39).
As you would expect, the fall season is full of gorgeous outdoor foliage that includes leaves. Introduce the outdoors into your home with leaf-inspired patterns that are rustic and rich in fall colors. Go classic with autumn hues like burgundy, mustard, olive green and brown (Pier 1 Imports, $30).
With the air becoming more brisk and the days getting shorter, one fall pastime many will consider is outdoor camping. Should you choose not to get dirty, turn your home into a campground with faux wood textiles. This is especially great if you don’t have a fireplace (The Land of Nod, $29).
Chevron is a pattern that never goes out of style, but it looks especially good during the fall months. For starters, its design helps to conceal wear and tear — which will come in handy in areas like the entryway. Its diagonal stripes help to add depth to a room, making it feel more spacious. When using chevron on the floor, or on walls as a window treatment, choose a neutral color to anchor the space (Ballard Designs, $19-$229).
There is something about ikat and autumn that pair so well together. Maybe the loose pattern or refinement for formal gatherings make it special. Regardless, it is a must-have pattern for the fall season that’s rich and full of depth. Use it as an accent pillow, bedding or even dinnerware (C. Wonder, $10-$14).
Jacquard, which is more of a weaving technique on fabric, has a long history associated with elegance and sophistication. Complex and intricately woven, the jacquard pattern is a wonderful addition to the fall season (World Market, $12).
