Nature wins when it comes to  fall decorating, with blazing trees outdoing interior design schemes every autumn.  But second place can still be delightful if you shake things up in your home as the seasons changes.  Looking for inspiration?

Here are a few trends harvested from across design blogs.

1. Mix and match neutrals

"Colorless"  design is all the rage for fall.  No need to pull in screaming colors or  wild prints to make a statement.  Instead, embrace calming neutrals by  using a variety of textures and shapes to create a mood.  Go beyond whites and experiment with light browns and greys.  There are a zillion  shades to combine to create an interesting palette.

2. Think snuggly

Plush cushions and cozy throws help update your home for colder weather.  Luxurious (and warm) fabrics like faux fur, velvet and thick cable knit add a welcoming feeling of comfort (and practical options for wrapping  up) as the weather grows frosty.

3. Welcome matte

Designers are loving matte black fixtures, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.  It's the new stainless steel. (Without having to worry about  fingerprints and smudges that can mar metal's appeal).  A matte black  faucet or range hood can add style to the kitchen while matte black  fixtures in the bathroom contrast wonderfully with clean, white tile.

4. "Curate" your space

The "curated" look is on trend for fall.  Display things you already have  and love; or use the trend as an excuse to expand your collection. Frame  those postcards you've never been able to toss, buy stands for your  Star Wars action figures or add some dramatic shelving to highlight your collection of your kids' pottery attempts.

Need a more drastic  change in your home space than decorating updates can provide?  Maybe  it's time to move.
