Sparkle for Fall


I recently got my West Elm catalog and I was delighted!  West Elm, Pottery Barn’s more modern and affordable sister, is offering a Fall and Holiday collection that I am swooning for.  It has everything I could hope for, some whimsy, some metallic and lots of sparkle.

Here is what I am loving for my home for this fall.

In the living room:

I love the texture on these pillows.  The sparkle is a luxe touch to the natural linen and canvas bases.  How fun would these be on our couch?  (hint, hint!)

Sequin Pillows

These frames, also match a set of small boxes, they have a fabulous pebbled texture and could look sleek and fresh at home.

Shagreen Frames

For the table:

These plates were a guaranteed winner: letterpress and gold?!  Sold.

Is anyone else thinking what I am thinking?  Appetizer and dessert party for the holiday season?

Do you decorate for the season with color or more traditional touches?

Fall at Home


Believe it or not, this post has nothing to do with my clumsiness, we’re here to talk about capturing fall (the season) at home.

In a post-Earthquake, and post-Irene Monday the air was a little bit cooler, the sky a little bit more overcast, the realization that fall is near that much more real.

This fall, in addition to some swoon-worthy fashion pick-ups, I am thinking about decorating at home.  I am trying to strike the right balance between being seasonal and looking like I decorate for each season.  There will be none of the following: scarecrows, jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, candy corn welcome mats.  Come on, people, don’t we know each other at all by now?

This is the idea:

For the kitchen I am loving these lovely screenprinted tea towels.

I love that these textiles really convey emotion and a tactile sensory experience.  Hi, I’m Veruca Salt, and I want all of them and would love to give these as gifts.

I think this is a very clever idea for lighting a Rosh Hashanah table:

And at the end of the day, I’ll cozy up with this to keep warm:

Fall just seems like such a lovely, cozy season.  Are you getting anything new, or hoping to, for your home?
