It sure doesn’t feel like Fall here in Berkeley, but the reality is that school starts in less than 2 weeks! The home stores are introducing their new Fall lines, and on the newsstand you’ll see  “Fall fashion” on almost every magazine cover. We thought it would be fun to go through it all and present the trends that we see for Fall 2014. You can see more of our inspiration on the Visual Jill Fall Decorating Trends pinboard, too.

1. The Naturals: Colors from nature (soft grays, whites and creams); leather; rattan; live plants; wood. Items that are noticeable for their texture and detail, rather than color.

2. Color: A surprise for Fall — soft blues and greens! Clean brights (like orange), neutrals, and black and white are still strong too.

3. Creative Collections: Personal artifacts hung next to art in gallery walls; mixing one-of-a-kind mementos alongside books on shelves.

7. Mixed metals: Brass, copper and bronze are staying strong for Fall, outshining chrome and nickel.
