Fall is upon us. We don't really need an excuse for a home décor upgrade, but the changing of the leaves and invitingly crisp new weather is reason enough to invest in some stylish home additions. We're entirely taken with Zara Home's collection of affordable and chic décor. To that end, we cruised through its new inventory to bring you an edited list of accessories to bring every room in the house into the new season.
From luxe linen sheets to natural wood and metallic accent pieces, these polished and refined upgrades will instantly transform your space—without breaking the bank. We predict you'd rather spend your dollars on a last-minute end of summer escape, right? While you're daydreaming about those best-laid travel plans, shop the fall accessories that will make coming home all the more sweet. That's two things to look forward to. The future is bright.
The perfect transitional bedding from summer to fall, linen is naturally bacteria resistant and moisture wicking. Highly recommended for any allergy sufferers, the anti-allergic, breathable fabric stays cool in heat and warm in cold. Plus, the sheets only get better the longer you own them.
Swapping out petite furnishings for streamlined, modern alternatives adds a flourish of easy cool. This edited and sophisticated nightstand is poised for the perfect vignette. Style accordingly.
We're loving high-contrast black and white for fall. Add a chic throw to channel timeless yet modern elegance.
Are metallics the new neutrals? We're still voting yes. Seasons come and go, but we can't get enough of sublimely soulful metallic accents. This hammered metal lamp invites rich texture and dimension.
This affordable refillable soap dispenser is composed of resin but mimics the look of shagreen—one of our favorite materials. Add elevated essentials to your powder room or master bath for a daily dose of luxury.
Sculptural details that nod to nature are perfect for celebrating the crisp change in seasons. We're also flagging charming bathroom accessories on our list of favorite hostess or housewarming gifts.
Chic bathroom storage is a godsend for small-space dwellers. This simple yet stylish basket is the perfect case for rolled spare towels or sundry supplies.
Swap out your utilitarian, wall-mounted makeup mirror for a chicer model. This architectural black metallic number is here to help.
Linen and leather is a winning combination for fall. The all-natural materiality of this restrained yet artful throw pillow is the picture of masculine/feminine cool.
One of our favorite small-space decorating tricks is effectively utilizing mirrors within closer quarters. Get your feng shui on! Placed properly, adding mirrors to a space is said to boost your wealth, health, and happiness.
This thin mohair throw in baby-soft hues is the perfect edition to welcome the cooler climate. We're loving the texture and nostalgia of the material. Throws and accessories are a great way to experiment with color without committing to more time- and budget-intensive remodel projects. No paint needed.
Try swapping out your coffee table for a set of transitional stools. We stole the idea from one of our favorite furniture designer's homes. In his downtown L.A. loft, Stephen Kenn styles four stools in lieu of a traditional coffee table. The transitional solution is perfect for parties, allowing the arrangement to go with the flow.
Metallic table settings promise to stay perennially chic. Stock up on your gilded accents now, and you'll be sitting pretty come holiday time.
Every happy hour deserves a proper glass. These chic and affordable tumblers have us craving cocktails. For further notes on what glassware you need to build your home bar, consult our wine lover's guide to entertaining.
Trays are the perfect marriage of form and function. Whether used for sleek and stylish organization, as a table centerpiece, or as serveware for entertaining, they are a welcome staple at any occasion.
Let's be honest, our favorite thing about fall is pie season (okay, and football—but why choose?). Channel your inner baking goddess with a chic apron. The right outfit always inspires a new adventure. Haylie Duff's savory pie recipe is our fall obsession. We suggest you start there.
