Ready or not fall is here, bringing a crispness to the air and a kaleidoscope of colors to the surroundings. This season marks the return of indoor entertaining and signals a march into the magic of the holidays.
It’s time to dress your home for the occasion; update your décor with these five must haves for Autumn 2014.
As the outdoor temperatures drop, warm up the indoors with layers of texture. From faux fur to heavy linen, plush rugs and cowhide, mixing materials creates a feast for the senses and keeps things interesting in your room. You’ll be cozy and stylish with our plush Faux Fur Blanket in hues of browns and orange. The soft sheen would provide a great contrast to the button-down look of the Lillian Chair. With nail-head trim and button tufting, the linen-look fabric is a crisp complement to its sleek lines.
A Touch of Americana
Fall brings a return to traditional values and family gatherings, and the design experts from HGTV say Americana is an important trend for 2014. Bringing a bit of our country’s history into modern times, our small scale Crank Gathering Table has old-fashioned flair. Made of solid wood and cast iron, its hand-cranking mechanism allows you to adjust the height to your needs. Or replace your modern dining chairs with the Bent Paddle Heritage Chairs from Gascho. Made from solid oak, the curved arrow-back spindles and shapely bottom will provide the best seats in the house for leisurely family dinners and game night.
Bring the feeling of the great outdoors inside by incorporating rustic details in your room. We love the new Woody Branches Cube, which is made from reclaimed teak wood. Use one as a stool or end table, or position two or three together to create a striking cocktail table. You could also swap out your dining room chairs for the rustic charm of the Sierra Collection Ruskin Bench. With its contemporary shape handcrafted of salvaged wood, this is the perfect piece for cozy family gatherings as there’s always room for one more.
With a nod to the ‘60s, Vogue magazine says graphic patterns are an important Fall 2014 home design trend. The geographical shapes are a throwback to that era’s Op Art mod designs. Our Sunshine Accent Chair features a fun and bold pattern that combines grey and bright yellow for a statement piece. Or choose the geometric design of the Liquorice Rug from the contemporary City Collection. The sharp pattern underfoot will create a sense of drama.
Outside the leaves are changing from green to yellow to red and purple; it’s time for your home to follow suit. From bright hues to jewel tones, rich, saturated colors are an important trend for Fall 2014. We love the punch of orange the stunning Leda Cocktail Ottoman will add to your room. Its tufted top is inviting and provides additional seating; top it with a tray and you have a handsome cocktail table. You can also update your master suite with the rich peacock blue of the Bennett Place Coverlet Set. A wake-up call for a boring bedroom, the coverlet will provide an additional layer of warmth to your bedding or use it alone. The set includes coverlet and two standard shams.
