It's about that time. Time to retire your seersucker and linen (for the next eight months or so), and start stocking up on the warmer, cozier essentials that will get you through the cold months ahead. Luckily, getting your living space properly prepped doesn't have to be a hassle on your nerves or wallet as all the top home decor trends can be found at Target. Yes, all of them.
To prove this point, The Zoe Report recently caught up with Lori Dennis, founder and owner of the namesake interior design firm in Los Angeles, who revealed the textures, shades, and silhouettes that will rule the home decor space this fall. Low and behold, all the top trends can be found in abundance at Target (either online or in-store) — to the surprise of no one.
Yep, everything from rich velvet accent furniture and dainty embroidered curtains to vibrant patterned wallpaper and brass decor pieces can be added to cart and on your doorstep before the clock strikes fall (September 22 to be exact). And you don't even need to leave your couch. Sayonara, summer.
According to Dennis, all things “warm, cozy, and soft” will appropriately continue their reign in the colder months ahead. Try heavy fabrics and textures like faux fur and chunky woven knits to give your space a lived-in, seasonal edge.

“Rich, saturated shades” are everywhere for fall, with an emphasis on jewel tones, says Dennis. “We’re seeing a lot of sapphire, emerald green, ruby red, and amethyst.” If you’re of the more neutral persuasion, dip a toe into the bold pond with a quilt or small side table.

Soft, rounded edges are the look du jour this season, says Dennis, and there’s no shortage of options at Target. Give the look a spin — literally — with a chic curved accent chair or lamp.

“The brass trend is still going strong,” says Dennis. That said, to keep from going overboard on the antique-y finish, try sprinkling it in throughout your home via a floor lamp or mirror.

If you want to try an accent wall or two in your home, put down the paint and opt for bold patterned wallpaper, a trend that Dennis says is rapidly increasing in popularity. But bold doesn’t mean you have to coat your walls in lime green or fuchsia florals (although you should, if you're game). Opt for soft metallic palettes that will make a subtle, yet effective statement in your home.

Rich, luxe finishes like velvet are going strong across the style board right now, says Dennis. Incorporating it into your home decor is a great way to transition your home into a quintessentially fall aesthetic. Try playing with throw pillows or (if you're feeling adventurous) regal-looking accent furniture.

Riding alongside velvet on the textured train is embroidery, which Dennis is touting as one of the top accents of the season. Go for subtle foliage patterns or bold, rich shades, depending on your decor style.
