Fall Design Trends For The Home

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love the rich colors of the fall season, particularly in the southwest Virginia region. The autumn hues of the Blue Ridge Mountains have almost reached their peak and restaurants are featuring hearty stews, piping hot flavored teas and pumpkin-spiced everything. Interior design trends closely mirror the sights, styles and scents of the current season, so it’s no surprise that homeowners are choosing to swap out their summer reds, whites and blues for cinnamon and champagne.

As the weather starts to cool off and flavors of pumpkin spiced everything begin to overwhelm your senses, it’s easy to forego your afternoon trip to the gym for a cozy sweater and impromptu Netflix binge. In fact, you’re probably getting a little drowsy just thinking about it.

The Anthem GO Outside Festival is challenging Roanokers to put down the remote and pick up the pace by celebrating everything outdoors.
