Fall is nearly upon us and you know what that means. It's almost time for the Vancouver Home + Design Show! From October 16-19 at BC Place, you'll find the freshest interior inspiration for fall - but being as impatient as we are, we need to know the top trends to look out for now. Who better to ask than assistant show manager, Tyson Kidd?

Read on to get the goods for fall must-haves now, and follow us on Instagram to join our Fresh for Fall Regram Contest. You'll find top trends and can enter to win free tickets to the show. What are you waiting for?

Wild World
We live in a highly global, increasingly smaller world. Which is a good thing for you, as this means that your home design isn't bound by borders. This fall, try injecting some bright prints from around the globe into your home decor - think throw pillows, wall decor, and decorative vases. Your space will thank you.

Tones of Turquoise
This bold hue was once saved for bathrooms alone - forget that. This year, turquoise has emerged as the reigning colour choice for daring designers. Imagine duvet covers, candle holders, kitchen accessories, and more. For an elegant touch, pair it with gold accents.

Colour Me Happy
Celosia Orange is the hottest colour for fall (literally!). This bold hue is burning up bedrooms, living rooms - even kitchens. Don't overdo it though. This bright idea can quickly go from a hot hue to a hot mess in one fell swoop. Stick to cheap 'n cheerful accessories, or for you bold types, one small accent wall. Orange you glad you listened?

Nice Tan
This fall we're seeing a resurgence of styles gone by. One of the long awaited returns is tan leather (check out this example from Urban Barn). Its warm tone is a welcome addition to any room. One suggestion: when buying leather, make sure it's top grain. That way, it will look beautiful for years to come.

Black + White
There's no denying this classic combo is here to stay. This fall we're seeing a sought-after return of simple monochromatic for the home. The deep contrast of these chic shades adds an element of sophistication to your home decor - when done in moderation, of course.

Will you stop all of these trends at the Vancouver Home + Design Show? You'll never know unless you buy your tickets or try your luck in our Fresh for Fall Regram Contest. Fingers crossed!
