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.

ThisandThatCrafter

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!

Outdoor Entertaining

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

There are so many places you can entertain in your home, including in your outdoor spaces. Have a screened porch or deck? Make it a party spot with lighting, decor and so much more.

We want to see all your outdoor entertaining products. Please tell us all about them and how they fit with the theme. How would you use the item? What makes it special?

Susan-Sharon Passmore from MsPDesignsUSA says we really enjoy spending time outdoors in the evening during the autumn months, when the sun is going down and the temperatures are dropping. It is a great time to enjoy a cozy outdoor supper!

A pretty table setting adds to the enjoyment of friends & food on the patio! Make a beautiful runner and some matching place mats with our “Easy Pieced Leaves” pattern to create the perfect autumn table!

Ballet Slipper – 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 Ballet Slipper.

PANTONE 13-2808 Ballet Slipper

Descended from the Red family but with a softer touch, Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health.

Laurie Pressman
Vice-President of the Pantone Color Institute

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

Cerena Levene Studio Make Believe from CerenaLevene says:

I believe in using cloth napkins for many reasons, but elegance is certainly one of them. I use my “fancy” glass and pottery daily, for serving food and beverages, and of course. I find the luxury of cloth napkins quite ironic, as they are frugal as well…like me! Elegant and frugal!

Cleaning House

Contributor Post by Sheila and Shannon of BeadyEyedBird 

Have you ever read (or thought you should read) The Life-Changing Habit of Tidying Up? (www.amazon.com/Life-Changing-Magic-Tidying-Decluttering-Organizing/…) it’s great inspiration for decluttering! Whether it’s scrubbing or just reorganizing the piles, we wondered what folks thought about the subject of  Cleaning House. Here’s what our Etsy Christmas In July friends shared!

willowvalleyvintage from WillowValleyVintage said:

My daughter and I love Marie Kondo’s methods and even mention her on our Profile Page! We try to fill our shop with items that “Spark Joy!” This fun Arm & Hammer Chart shows “recipes” for cleaning nearly everything under the sun with baking soda! Now, you can “declutter” by tossing those expensive products stored in the cupboard! Baking soda does the trick from burned on food to bait buckets!

Well about cleaning: Etsy was all over my house. The girls at work encouraged me to move my work space from the kitchen table to the family room. It has really freed us up. Here’s a broom to help clean in the small areas. It is old and hand painted with real straw!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio said:

I have two daughters, both creative souls and both members of the Stock Lane Studio team. One is highly organized and a whiz when it comes to placement and design. Another claims to have a method to her cluttered madness but that remains to be seen. Little by little though, her household clutter is being whittled away. Revealing mounds of dust bunnies that are making her wish she had never tackled the clutter in the first place! We all know someone who needs a sign like this.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna said:

Sometimes when you are cleaning and organizing, you end up with a lot of tiny things that need homes. I love using vintage and repurposed items on my dresser to store cosmetics, jewelry and other small items. This bird patterned repurposed trinket dish is great for holding jewelry, keys and other items.

Sherri from ButterflyFeetDigital said:

 My printable calendars are something I use for myself all the time. I have found it really helpful to write it down on the day I do those certain routine chores – because a few days afterward I simply won’t remember when a chore needs to be done again. So, my calendars don’t just have doctor appointments, or call a friend this week. I know from a glance when to clean the shower again, or change the kitty litter! I love the simple usefulness of a calendar I can scribble whatever I need to on!

 Cleaning…Yuck!

I would bet that cleaning and organizing is not at the top of anyone’s to do list. It is a necessary evil.

Here are some fun facts about cleaning…

1. You can burn 100 calories for each hour of cleaning. (I need to lose weight, but this would not be my first choice for doing it.)

2. By simply disinfecting your desk frequently, you can reduce sick days in the office by 30%. (N/A I am retired)

3. Dust particles are comprised of 70% dead skin flakes. (YUCK!!!)

4. Office phones have over 25 000 germs per square inch. (Going to clean my phone right NOW!)

5. For antibacterial cleaner to be effective it must be left on surfaces for 30 to 60 seconds before wiping away. (Thanks, I didn’t know this.)

6. The air quality in a closed space can be up to 500% worse than outdoors. (News to me.)

7. Most offices contain 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. (Glad I am retired for sure!)

8. One square metre of carpet can hold approximately 1kg of dirt. (Someone want to convert this for me?)

9. The average woman cleans for 12, 896 hours in her lifetime, while men clean an average of 6, 448 hours. (What’s up with this?)

10. Typical office workers hands come in contact with 10 million bacteria per day. (Again, retired.)

 Well I have been tidying up and decluttering the past few weeks as I prepare to move houses! Part of this process has been going through clothes and some have needed buttons sewn back on. So here are some fun buttons!

Donna Schindler from TreasuresFromTheLake said:

 This isn’t cleaning house, but it is a good way to clean out some of the craft beads and charms that you have left over from other projects.

Love these wine charms that you put on your glass so that you never forget whose glass is whose at a party.

Marijean from MariMartiDesigns said:

Nothing makes you clean house like the hormones that cause “nesting” in the second trimester of pregnancy! When pregnant with my first, my husband found me in the middle of the night climbing in the pantry to organize all of our party serving ware for the Baptism party we were going to throw four months later!

He also found me organizing (and reorganizing!!) all our food in the pantry! Stockpiling the faves and making donation bags constantly!

This time around, my home studio is getting tons of attention! It’s been VERY fruitful to organize beads and see what I really have in stock and what I need to order (vs just guessing)! The hormones have also inspired me to set up a more productive and consistent photography light box that is always ready to go!

That–and again, hoarding a bunker of our favorite foods!! I think my subconscious is worried about us starving to death when a new baby comes lol!

Here’s a tribute to all those pregnant mommies out there riding the highs and lows of those hormones that make us glow and grow!!! A new collection of mine inspired by the baby under my heart–a pregnancy tracking bracelet to help you keep time of your little one’s approaching birthday! A great baby shower gift or treat for yourself! You deserve it after all that life changing magic of mid night tidying!
