How to Style Your Home for Fall October 15, 2017
When the seasons change, it’s a great reminder that your interior environments could also use an update. As fall rolls in, we wanted to share some of our interior designer tips for styling and accessorizing your home. Styling a home isn’t easy but we’ll give you a peek into some of our favorite San Francisco and Los Angeles Design Center sources. From chunky, soft throws, to fireplace accessories and more, we hope this adds some inspiration to your design projects.
The most autumn accessory you can add to your home is a luxurious new throw. We love the entirety of Sandra Jordan’s Prima Alpaca line. With a variety of solids, patterns, and plaids in her collections, the options for creating a customized throw are endless. These handmade throws add an artisan element that will bring a sense of elegance without compromising on the cozy.
Pillows are a simple style element that really bring a visual change. When done in an unexpected material or pattern, pillows become an instant highlight and conversation starter. These pillows by Fog & Fury are fabricated from handmade wool felt, a fabric that makes a “rough luxe” statement. Without compromising on modern style, these cool, neutral palettes are an easy seasonal addition.
The quintessential fall feature is a roaring fire on a cool night. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your home, Tuell and Reynolds produces fireplace accessories that have a contemporary look, making them easy to incorporate into most designs. Tuell and Reynolds also crafts handmade metal lighting, furniture, and sculptural objects that are both sophisticated and highly functional. We selected this fire bucket for our Nantucket project – its smooth, warm finish exudes an autumnal feeling.
Flowers (@ SF Flower Mart)
Bringing in the natural elements is a great touch for the fall season. Flowers are a low maintenance and fun way to accomplish this. The SF Flower Mart is rich with variety and color. Bright oranges and reds can brighten up your space, while deep aubergine can add a little drama. Mix up your flower settings between tall and short vases and add texture with ceramic vases. Don’t forget to include small settings in powder rooms and bathrooms for your guests. It’s an unexpected touch that they’ll love and a great way to add color and style to a small space.
