When it comes to taking a look at current trends, who knows what’s hot or not these days better than top content creators on TikTok? Given that these influencers are pros at sharing the latest looks with their followers, I had to get their insights on what’s happening in the home design world. A fun little twist? I reached out to a few people that fall more under the lifestyle umbrella to see if I’d be able to unearth some unexpected trends for this season. If you’re feeling ready for a little home refresh, these decorating predictions will help you get ahead of the game.

All the velvet!

“My prediction for fall trends this year would be velvet pieces — specifically, accent pillows. Bring this heavier fabric into a space to make it feel warm and inviting. I also anticipate walls full of texture, whether that be wallpaper, a painted accent wall, or decorative moldings. Each of these elements can cozy up a space and make a house feel like a home” — Emily Coyne of Emily O and Bows

Clay and curves

“Here are the trends I think will be big this fall — and already kind of are: Venetian plaster, Roman clay, and limewash walls; futuristic aesthetics from the ’80s and ’90s; and lots of curves — think couches, vases, lamps, etc.” — Sourya Venumbaka of Sové Home

Checkers and fluted details

“I’m seeing checkered prints pop up in home decor, and I’m certain we will be seeing more of them in the fall, especially on rugs and textiles, since they’re the easiest and most affordable way to jump on the trend. Fluted details in furniture and decorative items have already been trending this year, and I expect for this trend to continue to grow in the fall as bigger retailers release their fall and winter catalogs.” — Lidia Salazar of Everyday Homedecor

Cozy cottage vibes

“Like many, I’ve felt an introspective turning to the past when it comes to my interiors. It’s no surprise that the romantic ‘cottagecore’ interior design aesthetic has taken TikTok and the larger social media landscape by storm; many of us hunker-downers, myself included, have become enamored with this rural and cozy lifestyle that guarantees comfort and shelter from the uncertainty of the world around us. So with autumn rounding the corner, I can’t help but think of this cozy style of decorating that harks back to Martha Stewart Living magazine’s October issues from the 1990s… plastic fall decor — or any products emblazoned with an obnoxious cursive ‘pumpkin spice and everything nice’— will have fallen by the wayside in favor of vignettes consisting of finds from the outdoors. Think scraggly driftwood, wicker baskets full of squash, and wildflowers. I, for one, can’t wait to whip out my crafting scissors.” — Clare McLaughlin


“Aware this might be a bit biased, but I am seeing neutrals are starting to become the norm! With the new products from the big stores this year and inspo we are seeing in catalogs, neutrals are the ‘new’ new. I’m jumping for joy about it, but if you aren’t sure how you feel, neutrals have all the perks. They will fit in with your current home aesthetic, the simple colors are timeless, and they will fit with your style as it evolves.” — Sam Werrell of StayByCoriSamuel
