Certain fall trends are obvious — and they're constant from one year to the next. That includes a certain spice that shall remain nameless (but shows up everywhere from coffee creamer to candle fragrances), dishes that boast the season's best bounty, and colors and textures that you work into your home decor to make it feel extra seasonal. And when it comes to the latter, you probably instinctively gravitate toward shades like burnt orange or chocolate brown to get your autumnal feels fix, but trend forecasters believe there's a brand new hue to try. By adding in some pistachio home decor, you can refresh your space for fall in an unexpected way.

First it was golden yellow, then a few more not-so-predictable fall colors — like peach-pink and fruit punch — surfaced as the new way to bring fashion's hottest shades into your home. And pistachio, a soft, muted green, is another to add to the list if you're looking to go outside the box for your autumnal update. While the color is on the pale side — think of it as somewhere between sage and mint — it still works perfectly for the season because of its inherent earthiness. And because of that, it's also fairly neutral, meaning that you can keep any pistachio pieces you pick up around all year long.

As for how to try it out in your home, the options are pretty much endless, ranging from large-scale furniture pieces to vintage objet d'art. But if you're sticking to a strict budget, some finds will work better than others. Still there's plenty of pistachio-hued decor items out there that won't break the bank. In fact, there's a whole slew of goods from some of your favorite retailers — including bedding, throw pillows, and even dinnerware — available for well under $100. Don't believe it?
