Well, we are well into the days of fall. Leaves are changing gorgeous colors. Cooler temps are forcing us to lug out heavier coats. There is a sense of change in the air. With the seasons, I am big believer than our design aesthetic changes as well. I am drawn to the warmth of caramel tones, natural woods + iron detailing in autumn whereas I might not be pulling the same schemes in spring per se. It's all in your mood and your environment and your surroundings. Above we shared some of our favorite autumnal picks from design, fashion and living.
Top Row: When a bookshelf comes onto the market that is more than just a bookshelf it heads straight to the top of our wish list. The sculptural Efrain shelf from Made Goods is perfect to store your stylish library; Nike? Are you for real with these suede and leather high tops? Get in my closet ASAP; It's getting chilly here in Chicago and our back patio is calling out for a chic firepit. This guy from Etsy is brass perfection; Is it just me or do you want to SINK into this phenom leather lounge chair from Ricardo Fasanello and watch an 80s movie marathon?
Second Row: Oh my Givenchy with this new nightingale bag for Fall made from luscious, black goat hair and leather; Arteriors never disappoints. We love these Loki Bookends to store your fall and winter reads nearby; I don't know if Beyonce is rubbing off on my lately but I die for anything honeycomb like this fab bronze and amber necklace. Maybe it's my love for the hexagon that's got me hooked; We love candles at ABD and especially ones that look AND smell fantastic. Check out this one from Zaha Hadid that we have been coveting.
Third Row: Fall runways have been on FIRE this season showcasing the looks we are dying to get into for spring. We will dream about this look from the Versace until it's warm outside again; My dog has a cooler looking house than you! The queen, Kelly Wearstler, is making things chic not only for your own home, but for your pooch's too. Could you die? More bookcase love from us at ABD because they keep getting cooler and cooler. We love the Vincent Bookshelf from Daniel Becker Design Studio for a lofty, industrial look; We have a new, local Chicago artist crush -- Brian Elston. We cannot wait to get our hands on one of his pieces for a big project we are doing downtown. Huge fans!
Bottom Row: This is the pouf of all poufs, people. The Sail pouf is made from wool dhurrie. I want a dozen of them for my family room; Light the way in these GREAT Geometry lamps from Micro Makro. Sometimes the most stunning design is the most simple; Jayson Home and Garden knows great accessories and their domino set is just another one I need to add to my growing gift list for the holidays; This industrial chair is my season favorite. A fun find from Kathy Kuo Home.
Falling for fall,
