We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — Pinterest is the place to go for seasonal inspiration. Earlier this year, we highlighted their summer trend forecast, and now that fall is in full swing, it’s time to see what pinners are on the hunt for ahead of the cooler months. Read on for our take on this season’s top Pinterest decor trends!
Halloween Decorating Ideas
Pinterest anticipates that Halloween will be scary big this year. So they set up a virtual haunted house filled with frightfully good ideas for costumes, party food, and of course, haunting decor. Our favorite? Succulents inside of skull-shaped planters. There are plenty more spooky DIY decor ideas to be found, but lots of pinners are also hunting for more sophisticated seasonal inspo, like pumpkin tablescape arrangements and cozy fabrics for the home.
Halloween isn’t the only holiday that’s top of mind. Plenty of people are looking ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas, too. From wintery gift ideas to Scandinavian holiday decor, fall is just as much about prepping for winter as it is about embracing all things pumpkin flavored.
70s Patterns & Textures
As of lately, fashion and interior design have been throwing it back to the 70s with colors, patterns, and textures from the decade. Think fiery orange sofas and rust-colored decor paired with the occasional pop of plaid. Funky embroidery is also big. Pinners are DIYing embroidered wall hangings and purchasing pillows etched with fun phrases and designs.
It seems like the shibori-dyed mud cloth trend will just never go away. (Pinterest saves are up 550% year over year). But maybe that’s not such a bad thing. Mud cloth is a natural and eco-friendly fabric, plus it adds eclectic texture to any space it lives. For fall, mud cloth fabrics dyed in deeper pigments like red, brown, and black are taking over the indigo shade of summertime.
It doesn’t matter if your home is a dorm room or a country house — hanging decor has seen a major spike in popularity this fall, especially in terms of greenery. Not only do hanging plants elevate your botanical arrangements, but they’re a great way to bring nature into your home as the outdoor temperatures start to drop. However, it does become more difficult to care for houseplants in the winter, so pinners are turning to decorative branches as another method for displaying nature indoors.
Velvet and cold weather go together like pumpkin spiced foods and fall. Depending on the color of the velvet, this fabric can feel super traditional and timeless or very modern and chic. People are especially smitten with jewel-toned or blush-colored sofas and chairs in curvy, contemporary shapes.
