Autumn 2022 is all about bringing the outdoors in. These design trends incorporate elements of nature and bring them into your home decor. So if you love wood, natural materials, and open floor plans this article is for you!
Hardwood floors in darker colors
Darker hardwood floors are more popular than ever. They’re a great way to make a room feel more cozy and aren’t limited to living rooms and dining rooms. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out dark wood floors in kitchens, bedrooms and even bathrooms!

Don’t be afraid of color.
You don’t have to stick with neutrals when it comes to choosing the right colors for your home design. When it comes time for fall decorating, consider using bolder hues like reds and oranges that complement the changing leaves outside your window.
White marbles and other light stones
Marble is a natural stone that has been used for centuries in kitchens and bathrooms. The smooth surface makes it an ideal choice for a kitchen island, as well as the bathroom floor or vanity top.
Natural wood with exposed grain
If you’re looking for a natural, warm finish in your home, look no further than exposed grain wooden floors and furniture. It’s a classic look that will never go out of style and can be as subtle or as elaborate as you choose to make it—from painted finishes like the one pictured above to unfinished wood flooring complete with cracks and knots. The key here is to keep it real; if you want a rustic farmhouse vibe in your living room but have some doubts about the durability of bare wood floors, consider using reclaimed wood instead. This type of material has been used since ancient times because it’s easy to work with—in fact, many carpentry projects start with recycled beams!
Stained glass is a type of glass that has been colored by adding metallic salts during the manufacturing process. The colors are usually obtained by adding a metallic oxide or nitride to the molten glass, but different colors can be achieved by manipulating the temperature and cooling time.
Stained glass is used for windows and other decorative purposes. It was especially popular in Gothic architecture from 1160 to 1490 AD, but also appeared in many other styles including Rococo, Art Deco and Modernism. Today it is still popular for making items such as lampshades, vases and jewelry boxes.
Stained-glass can be made from either colored pieces of glass or clear flat sheets of plastic with patterns printed on them that are lit from behind (by either natural light or artificial lamps).
Raw, rustic metals and textures
Metals are a big trend in home decor, and this fall is no exception. The rustic look of copper, bronze, and brass are all the rage now. These metals can be used to create texture in the home, like on lamps and mirrors or even as wall art.
If you’re looking for something more unique than your average metal lamp, try using raw metals like aluminum or steel to create a striking statement piece. You could also use these materials to make custom wallpaper that will give any room some personality!
Glossy lacquer finishes
Glossy lacquer finishes are a popular choice for furniture and cabinets, but you’ll also see them on accessories like vases and lamps. Lacquer is durable, so it protects the wood underneath from damage. It’s easy to maintain and can be used on any type of wood, including bamboo or oak.
Wicker, rattan, and cane furniture
Wicker, rattan, and cane furniture
Wicker is a natural material that’s durable and rustic. In other words, it has the look of an old-fashioned patio chair but will last for years to come. It can be used indoors or outdoors, so you can have some wicker chairs on your deck or find a way to incorporate some into your living room décor.
Rattan is another versatile option for adding warmth and texture to your home decorating scheme. It comes in many different colors—from dark browns to bright yellows—and can be paired with other materials like metal or wood for contrast. You could use rattan furniture as chairs or as side tables; either way it’ll add style without breaking the bank! Try pairing rattan with leather: not only does this provide visual interest but also provides comfort when sitting down! Rattan even makes great lampshades too!
Art deco patterns and shapes in lighting fixtures
Art deco is a style of design that was popular in the 1920s and 1930s. Art deco designs are characterized by geometric shapes, bold colors, and an emphasis on curves. You can see these characteristics in the architecture of buildings from this era.
Art deco lighting fixtures often feature brass or copper bases with glass lightbulbs embedded inside them. The glass bulbs give off bright illumination when lit up—perfect for creating a cozy ambiance in your home during autumn’s long evenings!
Colored glass fixtures
Colored glass is an easy way to add color to a room without being too bold.
Glass fixtures are a great way to add color as well, especially if you are looking for something that is more subtle and can be used in multiples throughout a space.
Brass or copper hardware on cabinets & furniture
There are many ways to incorporate brass and copper hardware into your kitchen design. One of the most popular ways is by using it on cabinets and drawers. For example, you could choose a drawer handle that has a lot of detail and texture so that it stands out from the rest of the cabinet hardware.
Another way to use brass or copper hardware is in the kitchen island, which serves as both an attractive focal point and extra storage space for appliances and dishes. For example, you could add a drawer pull made out of rose gold-plated steel with an intricate design carved into it—this will give any space some extra character!
Finally, one more place where you could use these metals is in bar areas such as those found in pubs or restaurants (or even at home). These areas are often decorated with dark woods like mahogany or walnut; however, they can also be made up entirely out of stainless steel—which adds contrast while still complementing its surroundings well!
Accent walls of reclaimed materials like brick or shiplap
Accent walls made from reclaimed materials like brick or shiplap are a great way to add texture to your home. While they can be expensive, they are an excellent way to give your space character and make it stand out. Accent walls can be painted or stained which makes them versatile so you can find one that works with the rest of your design scheme!
If you’re looking for something more subtle, painting the bottom half of a wall white is also a great option for adding depth and visual interest without committing to something permanent.
Wood is back!
Wood is back! And with it comes a wide range of benefits that make it the perfect material for any home. Wood is a natural, renewable resource and can be used to create a warm and inviting environment. It’s also easy to maintain and repair. When it comes to designating space for your furniture or appliances, wood is available in a wide range of colors and textures that will complement any interior style from modern to contemporary to rustic country chic. Woodworking can be daunting if you don’t know what you’re doing but luckily there are plenty of resources out there (like this guide) that can help get you started on the right track!
