Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there are only 26 days left of summer—however, before you start mourning its end, there’s plenty to look forward to. With a new season comes a new excuse to refresh your space, and if Chairish‘s latest trend predictions are any measurement, fall is going to be pretty fun indeed.
The online vintage retailer rounded up the styles it’s guessing will take off, and while there are some tried-and-true design moments in the mix (hello, ochre), we spotted a few unexpected ideas. Consider this the perfect opportunity to go a little outside of your comfort zone. If you’d typically choose florals, embrace your wild side a bit further with a mix of flora and fauna (a butterfly print, anyone?). Instead of bringing home another piece of contemporary Abstract art, go old school with a work of Cubism. Tired of marble? Indulge in an ’80s throwback: travertine. And if you love color and pattern but have long sworn off chevron, might we suggest giving flame-stitch fabrics a chance?
A few simple swaps—wallpaper applied to the back of that old IKEA bookcase, a throw pillow propped just so on your beloved sofa—can go a long way. The right buy will keep the good vibes flowing in your space long after summer is over.
