The pick: Colorful Accents

“If I’ve learned one thing from my career as an interior designer, it’s that seasons should dictate color and material choices in the home. In the fall, we tend to be drawn to oranges, browns and yellows reflected in mother nature. We can bring these beautiful colors into our homes by changing up our accessories with accent throw pillows or even something as simple as fresh flowers.” 610.513.0766,

The pick: Autumnal Hues

“This season is the time to bring the rich, natural autumnal hues that surround us outside, inside with us! Add luscious tones of oxblood red, burnt orange and hunter green to ignite a sense of warmth in any interior space. Aged leather chairs, cozy throws and good books add a welcoming feel that will make you want to gather around the fireplace with the ones you love.” 215.546.7606,

Deborah Bettcher, Founder Decorating Den Interiors


The pick: Dining Room Decorations

“Autumn is the time for warmth, whimsical decor and a riot of saturated color. With the approach of the holiday season, the dining room is often a central focus. To make your dining room the staple of your home, create tables and cabinets overflowing with colorful collections of curated elements to set the scene for fall festivities.” 610.964.8403,

Amy Cuker, Owner and Lead Designer Down2Earth

The pick: Sustainable Furniture

“While thinking in a sustainable way is not and should not be a design trend, the climate movement is picking up steam, and designers and furniture makers are getting on board. This season, think about implementing more products that use recycled material. Products such as tire rubber for flooring, copper engine coils for vanities, reclaimed wood for tables and desks, post-consumer porcelain for tiles or recycled bottles turned into new glassware are beautiful and sustainable options for decor this season.” 215.690.4328,
