What I’m Obsessed with for Fall

As we move into the first full week of fall, there’s change in the air. As seasons transition, it’s the perfect time to reevaluate your style, both in fashion and in your home. I’ve had my eye on some gorgeous materials and trends for fall interiors. Let’s take a look:

Gwyneth Boucle Chair from CB2


Not only is this fabric incredibly soft and cozy for fall, but it also upholsters beautifully. You’ll see boucle popping everywhere this season.

Bold Tile Patterns

Prints always seem to be bolder on the runways in the fall, and I’m definitely loving statement-making tile patterns now, too. These looks are perfect in bathrooms and kitchens, on backsplashes and floors.

Oversized Tables

Scale is key in interior design, and large headboards are perfectly balanced with custom oversized nightstands and tables. The bonus is that they also provide extra storage for bedrooms.

Feminine Colors

Soft blush, dusty pink, and a delicate bronze are some of the feminine colors that are perfect for this season. Just a little goes a long way, with the colors showing up on walls, an artfully draped throw, on an accent pillow, or even just in a floral arrangement.

Traditional Florals

Continuing that feminine trend, classic floral patterns are back, including chintz and cabbage roses. I like the traditional look reinterpreted in not-so-traditional colors, like black and white.

Clear Designs

Acrylic furniture is so versatile – I use designs made of acrylic in so many of my projects because they’re visually light and they work well in both traditional and modern rooms.

Cozy Comfort

Fall brings cooler, crisp nights – it’s the perfect season for cozy comfort. So that means it’s time to bring in a soft and warm rug, or a sumptuous chair that’s perfect for curling up in, or even a deep-seated dining chair for holiday dinners.

Light-Colored Floors

We want to make the most of the light when the days get shorter, and this fall I have my eye on pale-colored floors like light oak. These lighter tones also create a great transition from casual to luxurious without sacrificing comfort.

Natural Designs

I like to design my clients’ spaces with one-of-a-kind and artisanal items, especially those that are created with natural materials like jute, clay, rice paper, and wood. These organically chic items are showing up in fall trend reports from European trade shows, and are au courant for those in the know.

It isn’t only the leaves that change for fall – your decor can, too. Make the most of the season in your home!
