Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I’m thrilled that it’s finally here! Even though it’s still hot and sticky here in Houston, I know cooler weather is on its way, along with the gorgeous colors of changing leaves. Those golds, reds, and oranges provide a lot of inspiration for interior design. Here are some of my favorite autumnal looks:
For a Telluride vacation home, I went full fall on this cozy study. The browns and bronzes add warm and depth to this small space, and create a snug getaway after a day on the slopes.
On the opposite end of the wow-factor scale is this bright and bold room by Ashley Whittaker. The deep red lacquer is stunning, and the window seat is the perfect perch for leaf peeping!
In the luxe powder room above, designer Bruce Bierman went the extra mile for his autumnal look. The deep orange is the perfect stunning color, but the piece de resistance is the incredible vanity made of Macaubas Gold quartzite.
Yellows in the fall become richer and deeper, more like gold than the pale yellows of spring. It’s actually the turmeric color that’s been so popular this year. I wrote about that gorgeous color on my blog here. It’s a color that just gets better with age.
I’ll leave you with the inspiration image above, with every color of fall represented. And now I’m off to dream about the cooler weather. Because it still feels like summer around here!
