Home decor trends move at a mile a minute these days, which might help explain why Etsy has become our go-to
for keeping our finger on the pulse. Whether a specific style has hit the big time or not (we're looking at you, Art Deco
), there's no question it will be represented by our fellow crafters and decor obsessives on the online marketplace. Here, Etsy
Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson (you might've seen her on Making It
?) shares the fall decor trends that simply cannot be ignored.
I Love the '70s:
It's no secret that the '70s vibe has been a major focus this year. "It was a decade that celebrated handmade elements and inspired people to DIY their own personal projects," Isom Johnson says. "This look encourages [us] to create a space that incorporates a bohemian flair, with items like macrame wall hangings, braided rattan accessories, and colors like burnt orange and sunset yellow... but with a personal twist." Put another way? If you've been avoiding the rattan look, it's time to get on board.
Brit + Co Pick: Mighty Vintage Rattan Newspaper and Magazine Holder ($66)
Pieces with artful and painterly brush strokes are in high demand right now, and we can't help but feel like this trend is going to stick around for a while. "From ceramics to textiles, brushstrokes are having a serious moment in fall decor," Isom Johnson tells us. "What I love most about this pattern is the handcrafted effect each brushstroke evokes; you can tell that a real person hand-painted each stroke." Good news for everyone: That's exactly what makes this trend so easy to DIY.

Sure, it's good for the environment, but there's no need to sacrifice style when it comes to upcycling. If you're not up to the challenge of DIY-ing your next eco-friendly project, do the next best thing and add an upcycled piece to your cart.
Brit + Co Pick: Nordic Uniques Upcycled Cotton Nordic Rug ($466)
Spending more time decorating the outside of your place than the inside? You're not alone. Between the custom doormats and mid-century-inspired house numbers, we're definitely shifting our focus to the front door... just in time for trick-or-treaters, no less.
Brit + Co Pick: Urban Mettle Custom Planter With Brass Address Numbers ($245)
The Bird Is the Word:
Remember the refrain of "put a bird on it!" that was once inescapable? Well this year's aviary-inspired goods are a little more elevated and a little less expected. Just look at this quirky-yet-fancy set of china.
Brit + Co Pick: Yvonne Ellen Vintage Beautiful Birds Plate Set ($74)
Catch the Light:
While the term "iridescent" might give some of us '90s flashbacks, it's definitely coming back. "This sparkly trend looks almost as if the ever-popular rainbow and pastel hues had a baby, leaving us with a shimmering, glossy texture showing up on everything from planters to light fixtures," says Isom Johnson. Looking to bring some iridescent glimmer into your space? Mirrors or glassware are the way to go.
Brit + Co Pick: Mariella Moon Phase Wall Hanging ($17)
