Fall has arrived, and with it comes the desire to decorate our houses in a manner that reflects it. While pumpkins and leaves will always be popular, fall 2021 has a combination of reemerging and new design ideas that will delight us.
It’s difficult to know where to begin when there are so many styles, colors, and concepts to choose from. Looking into our zodiac signs can provide us with a working direction that meets our aesthetic tastes and accurately represents our personality. Check out your zodiac sign to see which trend you should incorporate into your seasonal decor strategy.
1. ARIES: BRINGING NATURE INDOORS
As adventurous as you are, you’ve probably been pining for the chance to get out and about again rather than being caged up indoors. Natural textures, nature-themed hues, and even a variety of plants are all being used in fall decor to bring the outdoors in. It’s only natural that you’d want to include this in your home, given your desire to keep your world open. You may also use pumpkins, lanterns, and other festive fall decorations to decorate outside places like the front porch or patio, preparing your guests to enjoy the season to the utmost.
2. CHUNKY KNIT DECOR FOR TAURUS
Taurus, we know how important comfort is to you. We may all be getting out our sweaters and coats as fall approaches and the temperatures drop, but those chunky knit textures are also making their way into our home design. Large weave blankets, cable knit throws and pillows, and plush bedding that shouts “cozy” come to mind.
3. GEMINI: CANDLES APLENTY AND VEGETATIVE DECOR
Who doesn’t enjoy using pumpkins and leaves to decorate for the fall season? While there are several ways to go about it, actual pumpkins (and other vegetal) ornamental objects are being considered for fall of 2021 to keep with the natural trend. Adding a plethora of beautiful votives with autumn-inspired scents is also a good idea. Because you prefer variety and are prone to switching things up, you prefer having numerous tiny items to rearrange and experiment with rather than committing to a single color or style.
4. CANCER: KITCHEN CORE
While we’ve long been fans of cottagecore and cabincore design ideas, the two seem to merge lately—with a heavy emphasis on the kitchen. It’s no secret that we’ve been cautiously, but hopefully, planning to gather and entertain our loved ones again over the previous year. It’s only natural for you, Cancer, to want to concentrate your aesthetic tastes on a room in the house that draws everyone together—and the rustic, whimsical decor possibilities for the kitchen core area exude the same cozy, inviting vibe that you’re known for.
5. LEO: EMBRACING VELVET IN A BOLD WAY
The lush velvet is back in style this season, especially when coupled with rich, indulgent tones like plum, navy blue, and maroon. The coziness effect is a significant benefit, and it works well with other fall design options—especially if you’re looking for an elegant look, as you usually do, Leo. Velvet can be found on anything from couches to armchairs to toss pillows, so it’s a great addition to your fall collection.
6. VIRGO: EARTH TONED WITH WARM COLOR POPS
While shades of orange, red, and yellow have always been (and will continue to be) mainstays, we’ve added natural earth tones to this season. Deep shades of emerald and hunter green, earthy brown tones, and stunning whites and beiges are just a few of the fall décor trends to look out for. These natural colors are providing splashes of warm colors to assist brighten up their neutral character. You’ll have no issue combining these colors into your décor theme, given your affinity for stability and hospitality.
7. ROSE BLUSH WITH MACRAME ACCENTS FOR LIBRA
You enjoy preparing your home for each new season since you have an eye for an attractive design. The color blush is back in full force for the current fall season—so if you’re trying to branch out from your usual color scheme while still maintaining a warm palette, this color will do the trick. As the boho home decor styles continue to flourish, macrame décor is growing more popular this year. Macrame plant hangers, a tapestry, and even minor touches on the furniture help to create a cozy atmosphere that wonderfully captures the spirit of fall.
8. MOODY FLORALS FOR SCORPIO
Who says florals are only for the spring season? Warm and inviting fall hues abound, but somber florals have made a reputation for themselves—and they’re back for 2021. Consider dark floral arrangements, ornamental accessories, and even black wallpaper and artwork displaying dramatic but lively designs. It’s the ultimate blend of drama and ambiance, and given your affinity for both, this fall style is a fantastic match for you.
9. BOHO CHIC DECOR FOR SAGITTARIUS
Boho chic is a trendy decor style that is only growing in popularity as the season progresses. This trend is perfect for you because it is associated with folks who love to live freely and have a bit of an eccentric streak. If the mood strikes you, go for earthy neutrals and jewel tones, with metallic elements thrown in for good measure. Layering textures and styles from various themes and textiles, as well as embracing vintage furniture, will help your area come together quickly. If you want to go for a more distinct fall look, you can add touches of leaves and natural elements—the option is yours!
10. VINTAGE STYLES FOR CAPRICORN
We’ve seen a higher preference for old styles over modern in fall aesthetics, thanks to a love of rustic and natural textures. Given your affinity for timeless items, you’ll have no issue embracing this trend. Combine tarnished and rustic furnishings with old textiles and styles for a unique look. Isn’t it true that if something isn’t broken, you shouldn’t fix it?
11. RETRO FUSION FOR AQUARIUS
Aquarius, you’re always up for trying something new, and the thought of retro fusion appears to appeal to you. This style draws inspiration from the 1970s for its color palette and art deco for its inspiration, and it is a must-try for this year thanks to its love of velvet and retro textiles. While other people might be hesitant to take such a bold step, that is not the case with you.
12. NOSTALGIC Y2K STYLES FOR PISCES
As a daydreamy Pisces, you have your head in the clouds and a fondness for the past, so incorporating a Y2K mood into your autumn decor is a perfect fit. This year, Millenials and Gen-Zers are feeling a nostalgic draw toward the late 1990s and early 2000s design style, and this trend is expected to take off in full force in the fall of 2021. Consider light pastel colors and maximalist gallery walls, as well as retro pop art and decor objects that harken back to a bygone era.
