It’s no secret that interior design trends often find their roots on the fashion runway. Especially in fashion-forward cities like Los Angeles and New York. Since the fashion world is currently buzzing about what’s on the horizon for fall, we thought we’d take a look at which of these trends are also hot in Los Angeles interior design.


Plaid is showing up on the runway in everything from boots to blazers to dresses. And the interior design world is following suit. It’s the perfect classicprint for cozy fall décor. The resurgence in popularity of this traditional pattern also means the color choices are better than ever. You can find perfect fall plaids in warm, earthy tones or more colorful options in bright blues, reds, and greens.

Dark Florals

It’s time to put the summery prints and beachy patterns away to make room for a new batch of dark, moody florals. Look for muted colors such as dusty rose and chalky blues and greens on dark charcoal, forest, or black backgrounds. This classic Minneapolis residence embraces the trend fully with custom drapes, pillows, and artwork.

Sustainable Materials

Whether on the runway or in homes, reducing your environmental impact is important. Look for bespoke items over mass-produced to reduce environmental impact. And whenever possible choose pieces made from sustainable materials. The ultimate goal this fall is grounded interior spaces that create a connection with the natural world. Materials such as bamboo, wicker, cork, and reclaimed wood bring attractive and sustainable options into Hawaii homes like this Kauai residence.

Jewel Tones

As winter approaches, the all-white look can start to feel a little cold. While the fashion world is embracing bright jewel tones for outerwear, the design world is adding the same rich hues to warm up interior spaces. This bright and airy condo in Honolulu is a prime example of the power of deep jewel tones. Pops of sapphire, teal, and ruby red add warmth and dimension to the predominantly white space.


Leather on leather is the hot look on the runway this fall. While leather has always been a classic material for luxury interiors, we know if it’s trending onthe runway, it will be hitting Los Angeles interiors soon. The tufted white leather sofa and white leather dining set add comfort and style to this refined Waiea Tower condo.

Animal Prints & Faux Fur

Fall runways have gone wild with animal prints and faux fur. But that’s OK with us because this fun trend translates really well into funky interiors. Whether it’s on a chic upholstered chair, a whimsical area rug, or layers of pillows and throws, animal prints and luxurious throws are the perfect touch for fall.

Cozy Comfort

On the runways we’re seeing super soft puffer jackets and large, soft overcoats. When it comes to home décor, the trend is translating to furnishings that make you want to curl up and stay awhile. We love to create luxurious bedrooms with plush headboards and layers of thick inviting blankets. Or elevate a dining room with lush, upholstered chairs and a large, cozy carpet.
