Fresh Fall Patterns We Love

As the weather cools down, we're tempted to start spending more and more time getting cozy at home. One easy way to create an inviting fall vibe in your house is to add some of this autumn’s trendy patterns into your decor. And the Dallas Design District is here to help!

Here are a few of our favorite patterns to incorporate into your home this season.


Nothing says fall like plaid. There’s just something about this pattern that exudes warmth. (Maybe it’s the flannel?) But don’t feel trapped by this classic pattern’s traditional colors. Plaid comes in all shades these days. Pink plaids, green plaids, purple plaids — you name it, it’s out there.

Try a few simple swaps, like drapes, pillows and throws, or go all out and wallpaper an entire room in plain. Find your plaid-spiration at F. Schumacher & Co.

Nature-inspired prints

We’re not talking your grandma’s tiny florals. Instead, think bright, bold colors and jumbo-sized blooms. And florals aren’t the only big player this fall. Other botanical-inspired patterns are making their way into tastemaking homes. Think leafy ferns or banana leaf wallpapers. Or choose huge rose blossoms for a bedspread or table runner. Check out the handpainted wallpapers at Gracie for some ideas.


No longer relegated to old-fashioned tweed jackets, houndstooth is a big trend for this fall. And just like plaid, it’s available in every color imaginable. Houndstooth slipcovers for your dining room chairs or a side chair in the living room make a great way to incorporate this trend if you aren’t ready to commit to the pattern. And of course your new houndstooth-styled room needs a few matching accessories, so stop by the showroom at Holland & Sherry for ideas.

Global patterns

Give each room of your home a well-traveled look with global-inspired patterns. This fall, designers are mixing tribal patterns with stripes, polka dots and solids for an eclectic vibe. Ikat drapes, a mudcloth throw or a Japanese screen will add a worldly touch to any room.

One of the best ways to pick up a global pattern is utilizing rugs. You’ll find an amazing collection of Persian and Moroccan rugs as well as rugs from other regions at Esmaili Rugs & Antiques.

No matter how big or small your new fall designs, you’ll find what you need at the shops and showrooms in the Dallas Design District.
