Fall’s Must-Have Home Decor Trends: Etsy

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am fascinated by trends. Are you? There are weather trends, work place trends, business trends, job trends, food trends, real estate trends, hair trends, fashion trends color trends and so on.

The definition of a trend is a general direction in which something is developing or changing. In college I took several classes on trends. I remember distinctly studying pre peak – peak – post peak timelines. I find trends intriguing. They pique my curiosity.

Trends unite us. Give us a common ground. A connecting point.

This article is inspired by the Fall’s Must-Have Home Decor Trends article on the Etsy blog.

The trends are: Old-School Glassware, Statement Wallpaper, Stained Glass, Asymmetrical Wreaths, Stylized Seating, Cabin Fever and 2018 Prediction: Wabi-Sabi. Here are a few trend inspired items from members of the Etsy Christmas In July team.

Stained Glass

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

Fall is the perfect time to feed the birds and decorate your garden and yard! Repurposed vintage glassware make unique bird feeders. This emerald green glass vintage cup and saucer is a colorful bird feeder and decorative accent, use it indoors to hold potpourri or a flame less candle too!

Mairi from mairidesign says:

Harvest time simply must have pumpkins and this one doesn’t need carving. Being made of stained glass, this pumpkin candle holder, fits perfectly into this season’s home decor trends and, with its autumnal theme and colours, is perfect for Cabin Fever to add a warm glow to a cozy, log cabin, weekend getaway. Snuggle up with some mulled wine, an open fire and enjoy doing nothing but being thankful for what you have.

Cabin Fever

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

I started making fabric pumpkins with the 3rd thru 5th graders last year as a sewing project in the after school kids club I volunteer for. The group has ages 4 years to 5th grade and the older kids asked for something that they could craft that wasn’t just a little kids craft. So I thought I would teach them some sewing. This was their 1st sewing project last year and was a big hit. Then I decided to make them for sale. Starting with ones for Halloween then some for Fall / Thanksgiving. They have been popular and seem to be a big hit. I feel his would fall under cabin fever. Something nice to have in your cabin to make you feel at home when you are stuck in a storm.

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

Pumpkins are always a symbol of Autumn and it’s great to see them around everywhere you look. They are great for the entire season from September all the way to November and this little pillow is great to put in a favorite chair to remind everyone that Fall is here to enjoy!

Winter, Spring, Summer, Or Fall

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

I am blessed to live in Minnesota where there are all four distinct seasons. Winter brings the snow and warm nights in front of the fireplace. Spring is filled with longer days and gardening. Summer is family time at the lake and dining outdoors. Fall brings refreshing mornings and glorious leaves! I don’t have one favorite season – I love them all!

Etsy Christmas In July team members are creative all year long and since we are a global team our seasons are different depending on the hemisphere! Here are favorite winter, spring, summer and fall inspired items from members of the #EtsyCIJ team!

SPRING

JO from alustrousjewellery says:

I love Spring, when all the flowers start to bloom and vibrant colours start to appear. This natural Amethyst gem stone which I have set into a Sterling Silver pendant will add vibrant spring colour to your outfit.

Elisabeth Perez from LizPOriginals says:

Spring is my favorite season after a long winter and all colors being just white and gray–the first green and bloom is so exiting like these agate pendants in beautiful pink hues.

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese says:

Hello, my favourite season is spring. I absolutely love the flowers this time of year! The lovely perfume from jasmine, roses, freesias, lavender and more! These cards remind me of spring time!

Summer

pam colangelo from PearlsVintagebyPam says:

I love summer! We vacation on Cape Cod. This year we retired so we spent most of the summer at the Cape. In 10 days we return to New York state. Summer means clamming at the beach, crabbing, fishing, pool time and walking. What a good life!! Of course it included shopping, listing and teaming On Etsy. Here’s the sun at the Cape.

FALL

Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal says:

Fall is by far one of my favorite season!

You get to open some windows and let the fresh air just pour in around you. The leaves begin to change colors and this prompts us to take a drive through the north GA mountains or through Stone Mountain park to get close to Gods handy work!!! My morning walks are even more enjoyable!

While we are true sweet potato lovers we do love the smell of things pumpkin spice!

Kristen from KestrelCollection says:

Fall is my favorite season. I love the colors of leaves and the migration of birds. I love the drop in temperatures and the big cozy sweaters.

These earrings speak fall to me because they might be leaves changing to those beautiful bronze colors or they might be bird feathers sparkling in a fall sunset.

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit says:

Autumn is both my favorite and least favorite season of the year! Allergy season is in full effect, but the beauty of the season makes it glorious. We love the changing of the leaves and hope everyone has the opportunity to visit Virginia at least once to experience our fall foliage.

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

My favorite season is fall! I love the leaves changing color and the mild weather! Harvest time and Halloween and Dia de los Muertos! Just a wonderful season! This Scare Crow pillow cover is just right to capture the fall feeling!

Autumn Maple – Pantone Fashion Color For Fall 2017

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Color trends are a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons!

According to Pantone one of the top colors for Fall 2017 is Autumn Maple.

PANTONE 17-1145 Autumn Maple

A quintessential autumn color, Autumn Maple is tawny and russet, introducing warmth into the palette.

Laurie Pressman
Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute

PantoneFashion Color Report Fall 2017

Members of the Etsy Christmas In July Team have been inspired by the color Autumn Maple! They have created items in their shops reflecting this inspiration! Here are a few!

Karen Hafel from timetalentjewels says:

When making a necklace it takes many beads to build the necklace but sometimes one bead can catch your eye and in this necklace, one did. To me it was the strand of Amber which to me it reminded me of Luden cough drops (funny) but that is what I thought! The necklace just captures the fall time with the shades of oranges, golds, greens with shades of purples and rust. Next best thing there is no other like it! Autumn is definitely found in this necklace and the best part its on sale! Can’t ask for any more, can you?

Kristen from KestrelCollection says:

Pantone’s fall color Autumn Maple is a rich caramel orange. Similar to a tigers eye gemstone. This necklace strikes me as an elegant accessory to show off this season’s color.

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

As with so many things, I tend to create and design items that I feel are useful and needed by me. I am not one to do a lot of texting because it usually doesn’t end up being “pretty”. It usually entails a few “colorful” words being said because my phone automatically thinks it knows what I am trying to say and either my finger nails are too long or my fingers are too fat for the tiny little keys to push. Probably a combination of both.

So, having a handy little cell phone stylus attached to my phone not only dresses up the phone but also makes it much easier to text when I have to. It’s just a classy way to add some bling to the phone and solve a problem all at the same time. I like to consider it multi-tasking!

Diana from joliefemmebydiana says:

In the autumn, we are always looking for some warm color to match the beauty of the leaves around us. The lovely change of season colors are timeless and warm. This is a great accessory with your favorite handbag and a perfect storage for your sunglasses and eyeglasses.

pam colangelo from PearlsVintagebyPam says:

I love earth colors. Mexican pottery displays earthtones. Autumn maple is found in my Mexican Pottery Collection. This bowl is a great example. Let’s get some rice and beans cooking to put in this bowl!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Pantone’s name, ‘Autumn Maple’ evokes yummy memories of maple bars and drizzled syrup on pancakes. The color is warm and homey. I designed this Halloween printable with our youngest children in mind. The color and font make it fun with just teeny tiny hint of scary.

Patricia from TheOldBarnDoor says:

While this photo card looks rather literal, it brings forth the warmth of the colour Autumn Maple Pantone. Often in the cooler days of fall/autumn, these bright colours give us the warmth we crave and find so comforting.
